German premium carmaker Porsche has been producing top-notch sports cars, sedans, and SUVs since 1931. It was founded by Ferdinand Porsche, the chief engineer of Mercedes Benz at that time.
Initially, the company focused on automobile development work, consulting, and other services. The German government asked them to design an efficient car based on the needs of their people. They presented the Volkswagen Beetle which became one of the most iconic car designs of all time.
In 1948, they introduced their first model, the Porsche 356. It was a rear-engine, lightweight vehicle made with handcrafted aluminum. The automobile was designed by Ferry Porsche, the son of the founder, and Erwin Komenda who conceptualized its chassis. It was also during this time that they released their famous logo based on the “Coat of Arms of the Free People State”.
As the German carmaker progressed, a number of their releases were considered collector’s items and currently amounting to millions of dollars due to their fine engineering, flawless craftsmanship, and renowned high-performance.
Some of their notable releases are the Porsche 917, their first race car to win overall at the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1970 and 1971; the Porsche 959, considered to be the world’s fastest street-legal produced car in 1986; the 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS with a staggering 669 percent increase in value today, and the limited-edition Porsche Carrera GT known to be the most extreme model the company has ever produced.
Porsche entered the Philippine market through PGA Cars, Inc. in 2005. The German car brand locates its headquarter in Mandaluyong which is a facility measured 3,000sqm showcasing Porsche merchandise and the latest Porsche models.
There are 6 models in Porsche Philippines' local vehicle line-up namely the flagship 911, Boxter, Cayman, Panamera, Macan, and Cayenne.
