  Porsche - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Porsche AG (shortened to Porsche or Porsche AG), is a German sports car manufacturer, founded in 1931 by Ferdinand Porsche, the engineer who also created the first Volkswagen.
Ferdinand Porsche's grandson, Ferdinand Piëch, was chairman and CEO of the Volkswagen Group from 1993 to 2002.
Porsche attempted an Indianapolis 500 entry in the late 1970s with a turbocharged 911-based engine in a bespoke car for Danny Ongais and the Interscope team; failure to agree turbo boost levels with USAC meant that this was shelved (though the engine later became the basis of that used in the 956 and 962).

 Porsche 968 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The 968 was an automobile sold by Porsche AG of Germany from 1992 to 1995 and marketed as the replacement for the Porsche 944.
Porsche briefly produced a turbocharged version called Turbo S—15 were produced in total, and again the car was only sold in Europe.
The 968 was Porsche's last new front-engined vehicle before the introduction of the Cayenne SUV in 2003.

Born from a misconceived concept by Porsche to build an affordable sports car for the masses, the 914 was launched in 1969 using a Karmann-built targa top.
Porsche was designing it's own front engined model, the 928, at this point, but it appeared after the 924 in 1977.
As a result of the 944's release, Porsche decided to withdraw the 924 lineup from the US market(the 924 came back to the US market six years later as the 924S model).

 Porsche
Porsche cars were then relatively cheap, and demand high, so, after building 50 of this original model 356, Porsche moved to Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen in Germany.
It was succeeded by the 1965-69 Porsche 912, with a light-alloy 1582cc engine, still a flat-four; a year earlier, the famous ohc flat-six 1991cc Porsche 911 had made its debut, available from 1969 onwards with larger power units, of which the ultimate development was a 2993cc unit.
The 1979 Porsche range consisted of the front-engined 924, with an in-line water-cooled four-cylinder engine of 1984cc, the rear-engined 911SC, with the 2993cc flat-six in 180 bhp form, the 911 Turbo, with a 3299cc six equipped with Bosch K jetronic fuel-injection, and the front-engined 928, with a 4474cc V-8 power unit.

Although the Porsche design studio had been established in Stuttgart in 1931, the first car to carry the Porsche name did not appear until 1948 when Ferdinand Porsche's son Ferry and a small team of designers produced the 356 model in Gmund, Austria.
At the end of the year Porsche decided that the air-cooled units could not be competitive and so withdrew to concentrate on sportscar racing instead.
In the early 1980s the company developed the Porsche 956 for the new Group C sportscar regulations and this enjoyed incredible success winning seven Le Mans 24 Hours victories in a row and five consecutive World Sportscar titles.

In return for that time of free advertising for Porsche, they rewarded me with a letter from their lawyers demanding I remove the page.
