Porsche, the German sport car manufacturer, was founded by Ferdinand Porsche in 1930. As a design office at first, Porsche was famous with its work on the Auto Union racing cars and the KDF Wagen which would later become the Volkswagen "Beetle". The very first car to bear the name Porsche is the unique 356/1, built in 1948. It is, thus, the ancestor of one of the most successful manufacturers in motorsport history and the start of a legendary line of sport cars. 187436 Porsche 935 France 24H 1979 Newman / Barbour / Stommelen 187427 Porsche 911 RSR Turbo Mid-Ohio 3 Hours 1977 Follmer / Holmes 90
