Repair of Porsche
Porsche (Dr. Ing. h. c. Ferry Porsche AG) is a German automobile company. The headquarters is located in Stuttgart.
The company was founded by the famous designer Ferdinand Porsche. In 1936, the first versions of the future “people’s car” for all time – the famous “Beetle” “Volkswagen”, which had another name – Type 60.
In 1937, the “Third Reich” needed a racing car to participate and, of course, to win the Berlin-Rome marathon, scheduled for September 1939. That time Porsche project received the support of the National Sports Committee. The work has begun.
Three prototypes Porche “Type-60K-10” were built for this event on the “Zhuk” base, or rather “KdF” (name until 1945), with a 50 hp uprated engines (instead of standard 24 hp). But the war disrupted the publication of this model.
The war years were given to the fulfillment of state orders – the manufacture of staff vehicles, amphibians, tanks and the guns.
In post-war Germany in 1948, the company launched the first car under the Porsche name – a small sports Porsche 356 with a forced Volkswagen engine and a streamlined coupe. Not having time to make its first steps, the car was able to win the race in a week after its appearance. Production cars “Porsche-356” were already rear-engined. The 356 model was produced until 1965 and served as the basis for the Carrera.
Considering the merits and good results of model “356”, shown in 1951, Ferry tries to build a purely sports car. “Porsche-550 Spyder” in 1953 bacame this type of car. This car that repeatedly won one victory after another. Thanks to his victory at the Carrera Panamericana auto race in Mexico in 1953, it became the custom to name the company’s fastest models by this name.
