Porsche was founded in the year 1931. The company has been operational for almost 88 years now. The founder of the company was Ferdinand Porche. During WWII, Volkswagen’s own production had turned to the military version of the Volkswagen Beetle. The company had produced several designs for heavy tanks during the war as well, but losing out to Henschel & Son in both contracts, that had ultimately led to the manufacturing of the Tiger I and the Tiger II tanks. In the year 1964, after a fair amount of success in motor-racing category with various types of models including the 550 Spyder, the company had launched the new Porsche 911:
The nephew of the company’s founder, known as Ferdinand Piëch, was chairman and CEO of the Volkswagen Group from the year 1993 to the year 2002. In the year 2002, the introduction of the Cayenne also marked the unveiling of a new production facility in Leipzig, Germany - which once accounted for nearly half of the company's annual output. Then in the year 2004, the production of the 456 kilowatts Carrera GT was commenced in the Leipzig factory and was priced at almost more than $440,000 - it was the most expensive production model Porsche had ever built by far. By the year 2006, after years of the Boxster and then later the Cayenne, as the best selling Porsche in North America, the 911 had regained its position as Porsche's best-seller in the region as well. The Cayenne and 911 have always cycled as the top-selling model ever since. In Germany, the 911 had outsold the Boxster or Cayman and Cayenne. Then in the year 2011, Porsche Cars North America had announced plans to spend almost $80 to $100 million budget but will receive only $15 million in economic incentives, in order to move their North American headquarters from Sandy Springs, Atlanta, to Aerotropolis, Atlanta, USA. Then in the year 2017, Porsche Cars North America announced the launch of introduced Porsche Passport - which was a new sports car and SUV subscription program. In this new program, the offering allows consumers to access various Porsche vehicles through subscribing to the service, rather than owning or even leasing a vehicle. The Porsche Passport service was available initially in Atlanta, USA. The headquarters of the company is based in Porscheplatz 9. The name of the place is Stuttgart, while the name of the country is Germany, USA. The pin code of the area is 70435.
