    Werk II, Zuffenhausen, Stuttgart Porsche / #Porsche-911 / #Porsche-911-993 / #Porsche-911-Carrera-2 / #Porsche-911-Carrera-2-993

    An 86-year-old #Ferry-Porsche , who was responsible for the first-ever #Porsche car sold by the company in 1948, stands alongside the millionth example nearly 50 years later. The car in question, a 993 Carrera 2 with VarioRam, was given to the German highway patrol, where it served for ten years before being handed back to Porsche. Today it can be found on display in the Museum, just the other side of Porscheplatz from where it first rolled out into the Stuttgart sunlight.

    “Racing is the ultimate test” Dr. #Ferry-Porsche . / #Porsche / #1971 / #Magazine-Advert

    In a race there are two things can count on. The unexpected and the unpredictable. So car must respond with an almost animal quickness and sureness.

    Speed alone is not enough. Every part of the car must possess the utmost in reliability. For Porsche, racing is the ultimate test that.

    We use the classic courses and tracks of the world as our research laboratories. They are the proving and improving grounds for established ideas. And the head-waters of inspiration for new ones.

    It is not incidental that we have been the world’s champions for the last 3 years in a row.

    The more we race, the more features we prove. And only when something has passed the test of the track does it ever show up on a car for the street.

    Everything we’ve learned goes into the Mid-Engine #Porsche-914 and the #Porsche-911 .

    At Porsche we do not race to make a name; we race to build a car.
