A Milestone Year: Porsche Turns 70

February 2nd, 2018 by


In 1948, Ferry Porsche released his first sports car—the 356 “No. 1” Roadster—marking the beginning of a brand that would quickly become known for its unmatched engineering, design, and craftsmanship. Shortly after, the Porsche 911 hit the market and grew to be one of the most iconic and recognizable vehicles on the road. Today, the brand offers an unparalleled lineup, featuring the 718 Boxster, the Macan, the Cayenne and more.


Of this anniversary year, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG Oliver Blume said, “Tradition is a commitment. Without our tradition and without our core values, we would not be where we are today,” explained Blume. “We plan to uphold the standard of technical excellence set by Ferry Porsche well into the future. Intelligent dynamic mobility has a great future ahead of it. And we have the solid technological expertise, creative employees, and unique team spirit to be involved. We have what it takes to ensure that the Porsche brand continues to fascinate—even in another 70 years.”


Porsche’s future holds the promise of electric propulsion through Mission E, a concept which “combines the distinctive emotional design of a Porsche, exceptional driving performance, and forward-thinking everyday functionality.” We’re eager to watch the Porsche brand grow over the next 70 years.


To celebrate, Porsche is hosting “Sports Car Together Day” at the Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta on June 9th 2018. Don’t miss out on a chance to honor this amazing brand!
