When Ferdinand Porsche designed the Volkswagen Beetle, he can hardly have imagined that his company would go on to build some of the world’s best-known sports cars.
Ferdinand’s son, Ferry, decided to take the Beetle’s engine and mount it in a small sports car body, kick-starting a dynasty that’s now instantly recognisable.
Alongside the fabled 911, the Stuttgart-based firm also builds the smaller 718 Boxster and Cayman models, as well as the Macan and Cayenne SUVs. There’s the Panamera luxury saloon, too, and it will soon be joined by an electric coupe called the Taycan.
