ABOUT PORSCHE
Porsche is one of the world's most successful luxury automotive manufacturers*. Since the introduction in 1948 of the first official Porsche sports car, the Porsche Type 356, the Porsche brand's milestones have included the presentation of perhaps the most iconic sports car of all time, the Porsche 911 (then referred to as the Porsche 901), in 1963, a record 19 overall Le Mans victories, the launches of the Boxster in 1996 and the Cayenne in 2002, and the debut of Porsche's first series production battery-electric vehicle model, the Taycan, in 2019, among many others. Today, Porsche honors this legacy with an ambitious technological drive to reduce the impact of its vehicles and its operations on the environment while remaining committed to the famous words of Ferry Porsche: "The last car that will ever be built will be a sports car."
