Porsche History

Though Volkswagen and Porsche merged in 2011, Porsche has a rich history that dates back much earlier. In 1948, the Porsche brand was created. Later that year, the first Porsche model, the Porsche 356, was introduced with less than 100 cars produced the year after. Other models, like the 550 Spyder, were introduced later on, and the company grew immensely.

Today, Porsche continues to be one of the most popular luxury car brands, reflecting the image of prestige and power with its high-end features and strong engine options. The brand’s recognizable logo assures luxury car buyers that each model adorned with it will always be of the highest quality.
