Saturday 25th April 1931
Dr Ferdinand Porsche founded Porsche KG, a company of “designers and consultants for land, sea, and air vehicles”. One of the first assignments was from the German government to design a car for the people, that is a “Volkswagen”. This resulted in the Volkswagen Beetle, one of the most successful car designs of all time. The Porsche 64 was developed in 1939 using many components from the Beetle.
