Specializing in high-performance sports cars, SUVs, and sedans, Porsche is a German automotive manufacturer owned by the Volkswagen Group.

Initially, Porsche didn’t make cars; it offered motor vehicle development work and consulting. One of its first clients was the German government, for whom Porsche created the design for the Volkswagen Beetle.

Not until 1936 was the Porsche 64 developed under the Porsche brand. In 1964, after seeing success in the motor-racing world, the company produced the Porsche 911, one of the brand’s most influential models.
