Founded in Stuttgart, Germany Porsche is currently the world's largest race car manufacturer with an estimated 25,000 employees.
But Porsche’s first ever car wasn’t actually a Porsche.
Their first ever assignment was from the government of Germany to build a car for its people, that is called a Volkswagen. This first car turned out to be the Volkswagen Beetle - one of the most popular cars of all time. The Porsche 64 was then developed in 1939 - using many of the parts which were used to form the Beetle.
Porsche is now owned by Volkswagen Group.
Porsche’s most famous and popular model is the 911 and on May 11, 2017, Porsche built the one millionth 911.
The manufacturer is also a household name in the world of motorsport as Porsche has a record 19 wins at the French 24 Hours of Le Mans.
