さらにティーガー戦車（軍には採用されず、試作のみに終わる）、超重戦車マウス（こちらは試作二両のみであり、一両は戦闘に参加した）、エレファント重駆逐戦車といったドイツ国防軍戦車や、150tに及ぶ軍用トラクター、風力発電機も手がけた多才な人物であった。 1945 September 2, World War II ended. In November Porsche is contacted by French Army regarding possible contract work for Porsche. On December 15, Ferdinand Porsche, Ferry Porsche, Anton Piëch and engineer Herbert Kaes go to Wolfsburg to meet the French. They are arrested and taken to jail in Baden-Baden. 1932 Granddaughter Louise Piėch (Daxer) is born. Porsche was contracted by Wanderer to design a supercharged 16-cylinder Grand Prix racing car for the new 750 kg-formula. The same year Wanderer, DKW, Audi and Horch all had financial difficulties and the biggest amounts they owed to Bank of Saxony, which then merged all the brands into one company called the Auto Union. The new company got a logo with four rings (and although only one of these rings symbolized Audi, by the end of 1960's the 4 ring logo became an Audi logo). On November 8, 1932, Porsche founded a special company called the Hochleistungs-Fahrzeug-Bau G.m.b.H. (High Performance Vehicle Manufacturing Ltd.) with its location also at Kronenstrasse 24. The company was founded solely for the purpose of designing the Porsche Type 22 Auto-Union GP race car. The Auto Union P-wagen (P-car, Porsche-car) later won 32 races out of 64, and drivers such as Hans Stuck and Bernd Rosemeyer set many world records in them. The company also started work on a new design, the Porsche 356, the first car to carry the Porsche brand name. The company then was located in Gmünd in Carinthia, where they had relocated from Stuttgart to avoid Allied bombing. The company started manufacturing the Porsche 356 in an old saw mill in Gmünd. They made only 49 cars, which were built entirely by hand.
Dr Ferdinand Porsche designed the original Beetle in 1936, and his grandson, Ferdinand Piech, is chairman of VW and the controlling shareholder in Porsche. Wendelin Wiedeking, chief executive of Porsche, is a member of the supervisory board of Volkswagen Ferdinand Porsche (3. září 1875 Vratislavice nad Nisou (německy Maffersdorf) - 30. ledna 1951 Stuttgart) byl konstruktér automobilů, známý především konstrukcí populárního lidového vozu později známého jako VW Brouk.Je také konstruktérem několika typů německých obrněných vozidel. Konstrukcí automobilů se zabýval též jeho syn Ferry Porsche, který založil. Porsche was later contracted by Volkswagen for additional consulting work and received a royalty on every Volkswagen Type I (Beetle) car manufactured. This provided Porsche with a comfortable income as more than 20 million Type I were built. After the breakup of the Austro-Hungarian Empire at the end of World War I, he chose Czechoslovakian citizenship. In 1934 Adolf Hitler or Joseph Goebbels made Porsche a naturalized German citizen.

In 1898, he developed the Egger-Lohner electric vehicle named C2 Phaeton. Also known as P1, it was the world's first gasoline-electric.
Ferdinand visited Henry Ford's operation in Detroit many times where he learned the importance of productivity. There he learned to monitor work. The need to increase productivity became an obsession for him. Conventional methods for increasing productivity include longer working hours, a faster rate of work, and new labour-saving techniques. Under Adolf Hitler, German workers enjoyed full employment, but historian William L. Shirer says this came at a cost of serfdom like qualities and poverty wages. The Volkswagen plant was completed in 1938 after Italian Labor was brought in. This workforce can be considered exploitative, but people were exhorted to follow this example. Although Porsche joined the Nazi party on his own free will in 1937, and was an SS activist, he did not have any "blood on his hands." Even so, Volkswagen, under Ferdinand Porsche, profited from forced and slave labor. This would include a large number of Soviets. In the spring of 1945, 90% of Volkswagen’s workforce was non-German. . フェルディナント・ポルシェ（Ferdinand Porsche, 1875年9月3日 - 1951年1月30日）は、オーストリアの工学技術者、自動車工学者。 1902 as a reserve soldier, Ferdinand Porsche was the driver for Archduke Franz Ferdinand (whose later assassination sparked World War I). Ferdinand drove one of his own designs.1933年に、ドイツの覇権を握った独裁者アドルフ・ヒトラーから歓喜力行団を通じて、国民車（ドイツ語でフォルクスワーゲン）の設計を依頼された。ようやく理想の小型大衆車開発を実現したポルシェは、3年後の1936年には流線型ボディ・空冷リアエンジン方式の1,000cc試作車を完成、1938年には計画通りの量産化に着手している。この際、車名はヒトラーにより「KdF-Wagen」（歓喜力行車）とされた。後の、「かぶと虫」（独: käfer、英: ビートル）の愛称で世界的に親しまれた名車フォルクスワーゲン・タイプ1である。当記事では以降「フォルクスワーゲン」とする（企業名と混同せぬよう注意）。

1923 April 30, Ferdinand joined Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft in Stuttgart as a technical director and an board member. Daimler and Benz companies merged the next year (and from 1926 started producing their cars under one brand - "Mercedes-Benz").Having obtained state funds, Auto Union bought Hochleistungs Motor GmbH and hence the P-Wagen Project for 75,000 Reichsmark, relocating the company to Chemnitz. As Porsche became more involved with the construction of the Wolfsburg factory, he handed over his racing projects to his son, Ferry. The dominance of the Silver Arrows of both brands was only stopped by the outbreak of World War II in 1939. 1928 July 15 German GP at Nürburg-ring saw Mercedes-Benz 1-2-3 win. Rudolf Caracciola / Christian Werner taking the win in a Mercedes-Benz 27/140/200 "SS". This is a more powerful version of the "S" with a 7.1-litre engine producing 147 kW and with top speed of 170 km/h / 106 mph. When "S" standed for "Sports", "SS" stands for "SuperSports". In 1928 also the SSK ("SuperSports Kurz"), the short version of SS was introduced with output of 184 kW (from the same 7.1-litre) and top speed of 192 km/h / 119 mph. October 4, the Mercedes-Benz "Nürburg" 460 (18/80 hp), the first Mercedes-Benz production car with an 8-cylinder inline engine, is launched at the Paris Motor Show. Dr.Porsche leaves Daimler-Benz at the end of the year.. The company was located in Gmünd in Carinthia at the time, to which they had evacuated from Stuttgart to avoid Allied bomb raids. The company started manufacturing the Porsche 356 in an old saw mill in Gmünd. They manufactured 49 cars, which were built entirely by manual labor. In 1933 Hitler appointed Porsche as the designer of the government funded 'volks wagen' and by October 1935 the first two prototypes were ready, officially designated as a Type 60 but known as the V1 and V2, the V1 being a sedan and the V2 a convertible.

German engineer Ferdinand Porsche is certainly one of the most important figures - if not the most important and influent-in the history of automobile making. This outstanding Teuton was born on September 3rd, 1875 in Mafferdorf, Germany. One of the most remarkable accomplishments of his career was that his work was not limited to on
On April 25, 1931, at the age of 55, Ferdinand Porsche finally registered his own company. It was recorded in the Commercial Register as “Dr. Ing. h. c. F. Porsche GmbH, Konstruktionen und Beratung für Motoren- und Fahrzeugbau” (Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche LLC, Design and Consultancy Company for Engine and Vehicle Production). The company was co-founded by Dr. Anton Piëch (10%) and racing driver Adolf Rosenberger (10%). Ferdinand Porsche—Genesis of Genius is well presented, lavishly illustrated with many previously unpublished images, some from the Porsche family archives, and contains valuable extracts from Ferdinand Porsche's personal notes. This is a huge work and a must for all serious book collectors, historians and enthusiasts of the early German. THE GREATEST GERMAN SPORTING car in automotive history was designed and built by a genius who wasn't even born in Germany. Not only that, but Ferdinand Porsche, the patriarch of the family engineering dynasty, had his hand firmly in the worlds of truck and tank design, aviation, Grand Prix racing, agricultural equipment, and more
1906 July, after eight years at Lohner, Ferdinand took up the position of Technical Director at Austro-Daimler in Wiener Neustadt. At the age of only 31, he is now responsible for the model range of one of Europe’s largest automotive companies. Ferdinand Porsche, the person attributed for the inventions of the first gasoline-electric hybrid engine called the Löhner-Porsche, economy car Volkswagen Beetle (though a controversy surrounds this fact with reports saying that the true inventor of the car was a Jew named Josef Ganz) and the founding of the now famous Porsche car company, was a Czechoslovakian hailing from the Czech town. His early designs included a motorised carriage with two electric motors fitted directly to the front hubs and by 1905 Porsche was recognised as Austria's most outstanding automotive engineerダイムラー・ベンツを辞職すると早速チェコのタトラ、オーストリアのシュタイア（現シュタイア・ダイムラー・プフ）から声がかかった。1929年1月シュタイアの主任設計者となり、その後わずか10週間で2,000cc6気筒エンジンを積んだ車両「30」の設計を完了した。この車は1935年頃まで多少の改良を続けながら生産され、シュタイアの大黒柱となった。次いで8気筒5,300cc100hpのエンジンとオーバードライブ、ブレーキサーボなどの新鋭機構を搭載した大型車「シュタイア・オーストリア」を設計、自ら運転して1929年のモンディアル・ド・ロトモビルに参加し、非常な人気を得た。 In 1906, Ferdinand Porsche, now the married father of one daughter, Louise (* 1904), switched to Austro Daimler in Wiener Neustadt, where, three years later, his son, Ferry (* 1909), was born.

Roads all over the world would look very different if not for an engineer from Germany. Ferdinand Porsche was a visionary in his time, with an active hand in developing the Mercedes compressor car, the first designs of the Volkswagen, and of course, the luxury sports car that bears his name The Porsche family returned to Stuttgart in 1949 not knowing how to restart their business. The banks would not give them credit, as the company's plant was still under American embargo and could not serve as collateral. So Ferry Porsche took one of the limited series 356 models from Gmünd and visited Volkswagen dealers to raise some orders. He asked the dealers to pay for the ordered cars in advance. He even wrote a letter to the bank's director to thank him for refusing.
In 2010 an official memorial was erected in Porsche's birthplace in Vratislavice nad Nisou, Czech Republic, featuring a Porsche 356. 1912-1913 F.Porsche developed the "Austro-Hungarian Electric Train" based on an idea from the Austrian Colonel General Ottokar Landwehr von Pragenau. It was subsequently renamed the "Landwehr-Train". Its design was based on the hybrid petrol-electric drive system which Ferdinand Porsche had already developed. The 6-cylinder type-M12 70kW engine drove the generator. Electricity produced by this generator was conducted to all the trailer cars throughout the train and powered the electric motors at every second axle. With the aid of the special steering system, each of the up to six trailers precisely followed the path of the motorcar. The Landwehr-Train was thus also suitable for narrow, winding roads through towns and for mountain roads. It was possible to operate the Train on railroad tracks by bolting steel discs onto the solid-rubber tyres. When used on railroad, up to ten trailers could be used.
1923年4月、本家ともいうべきダイムラー・モトーレンに主任設計者として迎えられ技術部長兼取締役に就任し、家族とともにヴァイマル共和政下のドイツ・シュトゥットガルトに移った。片腕であったオットー・ケラーとテストドライバーであったノイバウアーがアウストロ・ダイムラーからポルシェに従って転職して来た。最初の仕事は前任であったパウル・ダイムラーが開発途上で放棄したレーシングカーの継続開発であり、ポルシェの改良により2,000cc4気筒OHCスーパーチャージャーエンジンは120hp/4500rpmを発揮、このレーシングカーは1924年のタルガ・フローリオで平均速度66.081km/hを記録し優勝した。この勝利はスポーツカー界のみならず学界からも高く評価され、1924年7月4日にシュトゥットガルト工科大学から名誉工学博士を受けた。 . This drive train construction was easily expanded to four-wheel drive, by simply mounting two more electric motors to the rear wheels as well, and indeed such a specimen was ordered by the Englishman E. W. Hart in 1900. In December that year, the car was presented at the Paris World Exhibition under the name Toujours-Contente. Even though this one-off vehicle had been commissioned for the purposes of racing and record-breaking, the 1,800 kg of lead acid batteries it required graphically illustrated the limits of this powertrain concept. Though it "showed wonderful speed when it was allowed to sprint", the weight of its huge battery pack meant that it was singularly reluctant to climb hills and suffered from limited range due to limited battery life. 1931年秋、シュトゥットガルトに設計とコンサルティングを行なうポルシェ事務所（Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche GmbH, Konstruktionen und Beratungen für Motoren und Fahrzeugbau ）を設立した。社員にはかつての同僚や、ボッシュで徒弟期間を終えて来たばかりの息子フェリー・ポルシェらがいた。
Biography. Austrian automotive engineer and founder of the Porsche car company. He is best known for creating the first gasoline-electric hybrid vehicle (Lohner-Porsche), the Volkswagen Beetle, the Mercedes-Benz SS/SSK, several other important developments and Porsche automobiles In 1932 Porsche also visited the Soviet Union at the request of Josef Stalin, who offered him a post as chief construction director, complete with generous compensation, a villa, and the transfer of his entire Stuttgart staff. He was also promised unlimited development funds to build a small car. Porsche, who still loved to race his own cars on the race tracks, declined the offer since the European Grand Prix did not extend to Soviet Union. Grandson Gerhard Anton Porsche is born on June 5, 1938. While at the end of 1931 Porsche company had around 20 employees, the number had rosen to around 200 by 1938. At the end of June, Porsche company moved to a new purpose-built building in Zuffenhausen, just 7 kilometres away. At that time the address was Spitalwaldstraße 2. Later the building became known as Porsche Werk 1.

His father, also Ferdinand Porsche, was one of Europe's leading automotive boffins. He had created a novel electric car in 1900, the Lohner-Porsche, with electric.
Following protests from the local WW2 survivors that Porsche's Czech birthplace Vratislavice nad Nisou was promoting Nazism by displaying signs commemorating its native son, in 2013 the town authorities decided to remove the signs and change the content of a local exhibition so that it would cover not only his automotive achievements, but also his Nazi party & SS membership and importance of his work for the Nazi war cause. The move was criticized by the local association of Porsche car owners as silly and intent on smearing the good name of Porsche. Ferdinand 232 from schweres Panzerjäger-Regiment 656. Rather than admitting defeat and that his design was simply too heavy for its engine, Porsche doubled down and repurposed them into a new super-heavy tank destroyer. The Ferdinand was born. Ferdinand 621 from schwere Panzerjager Abteilung 65 Ferdinand Porsche (3 September 1875 - 30 January 1951) was an Austrian-German automotive engineer and founder of the Porsche car company. He is best known for creating the first gasoline-electric hybrid vehicle (Lohner-Porsche), the Volkswagen Beetle, the Mercedes-Benz SS/SSK, several other important developments and Porsche automobiles Estonian "Auto" magazine 5/1938 writes that the KdF-wagen (Volkswagen) factory construction started in May 1938 and after it will be finished, 50.000 workers will be hired. The article writes that no other car in the world has passed so many and so long tests as Dr.Porsche's people's car. Initial information says, the car will weigh only 650 kg, will consume 6-7 litres of fuel on 100 km and standard color will be dark blue!? Acceleration 0-70 km/h comes in 14 seconds which is comparable to the cars with larger engines. 1931 January 1, rental agreement started for Porsche's own design office at Kronenstrasse 24, in the center of Stuttgart (Ferdinand Porsche had actually moved in already in December 1930). The company was officially registered a few months later.
Porsche, as we know it today, was founded by Ferdinand Porsche and his son Ferdinand (Ferry) in a shop in Stuttgart, Germany with 200 workers in 1948. Groomed to take over the family's plumbing business , a young Ferdinand completed his plumber apprenticeship and state trade school in Reichenberg In November 1945 after the war, Porsche was asked to continue the design of the Volkswagen in France and to move the factory equipment there as part of war reparations. Differences within the French government and objections from the French automotive industry put a halt to this project before it had even begun. On 15 December 1945, French authorities arrested Porsche, Anton Piëch, and Ferry Porsche as war criminals. While Ferry was set free soon, Ferdinand and Anton were held in a Dijon prison for 20 months without trial.
He showed a strong aptitude for mechanical work at a very early age. He attended classes at the Imperial Technical School in Reichenberg (Czech language: Liberec ) at night while helping his father in his mechanical shop by day. Thanks to a referral, Porsche landed a job with the Béla Egger Electrical company in Vienna when he turned 18. In Vienna he would sneak into the local university whenever he could after work. Other than attending classes there, Porsche never received any higher engineering education. During his five years with Béla Egger, Porsche first developed the electric hub motor. Porsche SE is 100 percent owned by Ferdinand Porsche's descendants. Piëch, a grandson of the founder, owned a 14.7 percent stake of Porsche SE, valued at approximately $1.16 billion Ferdinand Oliver Porsche, 58 | The son of Ferdinand Alexander, who created the 911 sports car and founded Porsche Design, is the longest serving member of the family's fourth generation on. In 1906, Austro-Daimler recruited Porsche as their chief designer. Porsche's best known Austro-Daimler car was designed for the Prince Henry Trial in 1910, named after Wilhelm II's younger brother Prince Heinrich of Prussia. Examples of this streamlined, 85 horsepower (63 kW) car won the first three places, and the car is still better known by the nickname "Prince Henry" than by its model name "Modell 27/80". Passenger list from October 3, 1936, tells us that Ferdinand Porsche lived at Feuerbacherweg 48, Stuttgart, was 5'8" (172-173 cm) tall, had gray hair and blue eyes. Below is concentrated information from that list:
Ferdinand Porsche's move to garner interest in his vehicles from the military had worked, and it would soon spawn a 40-year career working for the armed forces. The Lohner-Porsche Mixte Hybrid, pictured 1900. By the outbreak of World War I, Porsche was already winning admirers with his ground-breaking designs for military vehicles Porsche is the most luxury car that is out of the reach of most of the people. Ferdinand Porsche has brought the brand to this level with immense hard work The Egger-Lohner was a carriage-like car driven by two electric motors within the front wheel hubs, powered by batteries. This drive train construction was easily expanded to four-wheel drive, by mounting two more electric motors to the rear wheels, and a four-motor example was ordered by Englishman E. W. Hart in 1900. In December that year, the car was displayed at the Paris World Exhibition under the name Toujours-Contente. Even though this one-off vehicle had been commissioned for the purposes of racing and record-breaking, its 1,800 kg (4,000 lb) of lead–acid batteries was a severe shortcoming . Though it "showed wonderful speed when it was allowed to sprint", the weight of the batteries rendered it slow to climb hills. It also suffered from limited range due to limited battery life. In 1926, Daimler Motoren Gesellschaft and Benz & Cie merged into Daimler-Benz, with their joint products beginning to be called Mercedes-Benz. However, Porsche's ideas for a small, light-weight Mercedes-Benz car was not popular with Daimler-Benz's board. He left in 1929 for Steyr Automobile, but the Great Depression brought about Steyr's economic collapse and Porsche ended up being unemployed. So, Ferdinand Porsche was given the task to design and develop the vehicle. The result was the invention of the iconic car, Volkswagen Beetle, in 1934. After the Volkswagen factory had been opened, Ferdinand served as a general manager of the company. But the Beetle was not the first car Ferdinand Porsche designed
その傍らでポルシェは小型大衆車の開発にも意欲を見せていたが、第一次世界大戦後の不況下で着手は困難であり、更に不況対策のため合併したベンツ系の重役陣からは大反対を受けた。元々頑固な性格のポルシェは経営陣との軋轢も多く、彼らの意向で開発現場から外される見込みになったことから「SS」が世に出た1928年にダイムラー・ベンツを辞職した。 John Glynn's Ferdinand Magazine has been the Internet's favourite classic Porsche blog for over fifteen years, with regular features and market updates フェルディナント・ポルシェ（Ferdinand Porsche, 1875年 9月3日 - 1951年 1月30日 ）は、オーストリアの工学 技術者、自動車工学者。. ダイムラーのメルセデス（ベンツとの合併後はダイムラー・ベンツ、現メルセデス・ベンツ）の古典的高性能車群、ミッドシップエンジン方式を採用した画期的. 1897 he built an electric wheel-hub motor. In the same year he started working at Hofwagenfabrik Jacob Lohner & Co., Vienna, in the freshly established car department. 車輪のハブにモーターを搭載した電気自動車「ローナーポルシェ」を考案し、1900年のパリ万国博覧会[注釈 4]にも出展された。この発想は現代の電気自動車や一部のハイブリッドカーに用いられるインホイールモーターの先駆である。
Ferdinand Porsche Biography, Life, Interesting Facts Childhood And Early Life. Car designer Ferdinand Porsche was born on the 3 September 1875 in Maffersdorf.Maffersdorf is now part of Liberec City in Czechoslovakia. When Porsche was born, Maffersdorf was part of Bohemia and had been settled by German tradespeople as part of the Austro-Hungarian empire. He was the third child born into the. According to official Porsche lore, the automotive design firm, Dr. Ing. Hc F. Porsche GmbH, was founded in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen in 1931 by Dr. Ferdinand Porsche and his son-in-law Anton Piëch. The Porsche and Piëch families still control the sports car company and the larger Volkswagen Group that owns it The “P1” – designed and built by Ferdinand Porsche – was one of the first vehicles registered in Austria, and took to the streets of Vienna on June 26, 1898. The highly compact electric drive, weighing just 130 kg/290 lb, offered an output of 3 hp. For short periods, up to 5 hp could be achieved in overloading mode, allowing the P1 to reach up to 22 mph/35 kph. The speed was regulated via a 12-speed controller. The first practical test awaited the P1 on September 28, 1899 at the international motor vehicle exhibition in Berlin - a race for electric vehicles over a distance of 40 km was announced. With three passengers on board, Ferdinand Porsche steered his P1 across the finish line as the winner. Automotive Engineer. He was the founder of Porsche Motor Cars, the creator of the world's first hybrid vehicle (gasoline-electric) the iconic Volkswagen Beetle, and the ground-breaking Mercedes-Benz SS/SSK. He designed the 1923 Benz Tropfenwagen, which was the first race car with mid-engine, rear-wheel drive..
The flattened hat was a moment that displayed Ferdinand Porsche's impatient and quick-tempered character traits. Yet once again it was a moment that set the course for the future. Since April 1923, Ferdinand Porsche had been demonstrating his ingenuity in building engines at Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft List of prominent persons onboard of SS Bremen October 2-8, 1936: inventor and constructor Ferdinand Porsche, electrical engineer Max Knoll, aeronautical engineer Frank Caldwell, aviator William Douglas Stock Sanday, racing driver and one of the founders of Squire car company Gerard Francis Anthony "Jock" Manby-Colegrave, engineer Ernst Grob, son of bakelite inventor George Baekeland, astronomer Joseph Helffrich, architect John Russell Pope, Telefunken director Hermann Behner, industrialist Richard Merton, Prince of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, Swedish prince Sigvard Bernadotte, novelist Johanna van Ammers-Küller, violin virtuoso and composer Fritz Kreisler, conductor, pianist and composer Wilfrid Pelletier, physicist August Karolus, industrialist Frank Vlchek, banker Rudopl Hermann Kissel, American tobacco heiress Mary French Stephenson (wife of spy William Stephenson, a role model for James Bond), screenwriter Edwin Blum ("The New Adventures of Tarzan", 1935), writer and musician Albert Morris Babgy, first American business woman and Coca-Cola board member Letitia Pate Whitehead Evans, writer Ernest Pascal, pianist Youra Guller, painter and Guggenheim Museum co-founder Hilla Rebay von Ehrenwiesen, world's biggest media magnate's wife Millicent Hearst, Broadway producer Gertrude Macy, Titanic survivor and White House music teacher Marie Grice Young and many others to give the idea of the travellers. Also in 1931 the motorcyle firm Zündapp were interested in expanding their motorcycle range with a small and affordable car, Ferdinand Porsche was contracted to developed a prototype. The small cheap car has some simularities with the later Beetle, it had a backbone chassis and a rear engine (although Porsche preferred the 4-cylinder flat engine, Zündapp chose to use a water-cooled 5-cylinder radial engine).These projects led to two projects for Porsche, and set a precedent for the rest of the decade, with Porsche undertaking further projects for the Nazis, including the Tiger tank and the Elefant tank destroyer.
父アントン・ポルシェは1845年にアルトハルツドルフに生まれ、年季奉公を済ますとオーストリア＝ハンガリー帝国の支配下にあった北ボヘミアリベレツ近郊の町マッフェルスドルフ （Maffersdorf）、現在のヴラティスラヴィチェ・ナド・ニスウ（Vratislavice nad Nisou ）でブリキ細工職人となり、1850年生まれのアンナ・エールリッヒと1871年に結婚した。 V2 Prototype carThe V1 and V2 were then followed by the V3 and the VW30 as the designs were refined. The biggest design change came when it was decided that the car should have a glass rear window replacing the slotted rear, but curved glass was too expensive to produce. The solution was a 'split' rear window with two sections of flat glass. This required that the strengthening swage lines to be re-drawn and the body designer Erwin Komenda came up with the VW38 design that finally went into production. ドイツ国内外の主要メーカーからの委嘱によって自動車設計を手がける一方、当時の技術における理想的なレイアウトのリアエンジン式・流線型小型大衆車の開発を試みるが、提携先メーカー各社の充分な協力が得られず、資金不足により頓挫した。この時設計したタイプ12がのちのフォルクスワーゲンの原型となった。
While his father was in captivity, Ferry tried to keep the company in business, and they also repaired cars, water pumps, and winches. A contract with Piero Dusio was completed for a Grand Prix motor racing car, the Type 360 Cisitalia. The innovative 4WD design never raced, but the money it received was used to redeem Ferdinand Porsche from prison. Ferdinand Porsche was an automotive engineer.. Austro-Daimler AG. Porsche was recruited into Austro-Daimler in 1906 as their chief designer.. Porsche GmbH. Porsche returned to Stuttgart in April 1931 and founded consulting firm Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche GmbH, Konstruktionen und Beratungen für Motoren und Fahrzeugbau (designs and consulting services for engines and vehicles) 1951 January 30, at the age of 75 Professor Dr. Ing. h.c. Ferdinand Porsche dies in Stuttgart. He didn't recover from the stroke he got in November 1950. He is laid to rest in chapel in family estate "Schüttgut" in Zell am See, Austria.
1937 April 17, grandson Ferdinand Karl Piėch is born. In June F.Porsche makes his second US visit together with his son Ferry and secretary G.Kaes. Estonian car magazine "Auto" 3/4-1937 writes: "People's car (Volkswagen) is a headache! Dr.Porsche, the constructor of the Auto-Union racing cars, said that it is easier to build 10 racing cars than 1 people's car."自動車だけでなく各種の航空エンジンを開発し、1910年には最初の航空機用エンジンが出荷され、この時にはオーストリアにはまだ飛行機は1機もなかったが、ポルシェは飛行機の将来性に気がついておりエンジン開発を継続するよう主張、第一次世界大戦前ダイムラーの航空用エンジンの優秀性はすでに世界に知れ渡った。重量軽減のため薄い鋼鈑をシリンダーバレルの周囲に溶接しシリンダージャケットとする手法は後にダイムラー・ベンツで設計したスーパーチャージャー付エンジンに採用されただけでなく、彼がダイムラー・ベンツを去った後もV型12気筒エンジンDB 601や、メルセデス・ベンツ・300SLRの直列6気筒エンジンにも見られる。1912年から彼は空冷エンジンに切り替えた。最初の空冷航空エンジンは水平対向4気筒OHVで、当時傑作と認められ航空先進国だったイギリスのビアードモアでも生産されるほどであった。このエンジンはイギリスのサイエンス・ミュージアムに展示されているが、これを見ると驚く程フォルクスワーゲンのエンジンと似ているという。1918年にはプロペラ回転の隙間を縫って弾が発射されるよう設計していた。 In 1906, Austro-Daimler recruited Porsche as their chief designer. Porsche's best known Austro-Daimler car was designed for the Prince Henry Trial in 1910, named after Wilhelm II's younger brother Prince Heinrich of Prussia. Examples of this streamlined, 85 horsepower (63 kW) car won the first three places, and the car is still better known by the nickname "Prince Henry" than by its model name "Modell 27/80". He also created a 30 horsepower model called the Maja, named after Mercedes Jellinek's younger sister, Andrée Maja (or Maia) Jellinek.

Find out about the different milestones in the life of Ferdinand Porsche.. From the first construction of Ferdinand Porsche the 1898 Egger-Lohner electric vehicle, C.2 Phaeton model to the electric wheel-hub drive of the Lohner Porsche to the startup of his own automotive manufacturing operations in Gmünd in 1948, the exhibition area Porsche before 1948 breaks down the activities. The Lohner-Porsche Mixed Hybrid (sometimes wrongly referred to as Löhner-Porsche) was the first hybrid vehicle and was developed by Ferdinand Porsche at Lohner-Werke.First prototypes were two-wheel drive, battery-powered electric vehicles with two front-wheel hub-mounted motors. A later version was a series hybrid using hub-mounted electric motors in each wheel, powered by batteries and a. Porsche visited Henry Ford's operation in Detroit many times where he learned the importance of productivity. There he learned to monitor work. He was also surprised at how the workers and the managers treated each other as equals; even he, as a visiting dignitary, had to carry his own tray in the cafeteria and eat with the workers. まもなくディジョンの刑務所に移され、ここで1年7か月厳しい生活を送ったが、ベネディクト会のヨハネス神父の尽力により何とか生き存えられた。

Their first project was the design of a middle class car for Wanderer. Other commissioned designs followed. As the business grew, Porsche decided to work on his own design as well, which happened to be a reincarnation of the small car concept from his days at Daimler-Benz in Stuttgart. He financed the project with a loan on his life insurance. Later Zündapp decided to help sponsor the project, but lost interest after their success with motorcycles. NSU then took over the sponsorship, but also lost interest due to the high tooling costs. The Lohner-Porsche electric car, a "Chaise" ("Chair") with the internal vehicle number 24000, was exhibited as the only Austrian car at the 1900 Paris World Fair. A news report at the time described the development of the first-ever transmissionless vehicle as a revolutionary innovation. The electric motors in the hubs of the front wheels had an output of 1.8 kW at 120 rpm. The 44-cell, 80-volt rechargeable battery with a capacity of 300 Ah gave the car a range of 50 km / 30 miles between recharges. The maximum speed was 50 km/h / 30 mph. The slow speed of the electric motor permitted direct drive and installation in the wheel. The motor operated without chains and thus without mechanical power loss. Consequently, the electric motor was extremely efficient and was almost silent during operation. The total weight of the vehicle was 1205 kg / 2657 lbs. The car could be braked at all four wheels - by the motors at the front axle and with the aid of a mechanical strap brake at the rear axle. Ferdinand also victoriously tested his designs in races - he won on the Semmering circuit near Vienna in 1900.In 1898, Porsche joined the Vienna-based factory Jakob Lohner & Company, which produced coaches for Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria as well as for the kings of England, Sweden, and Romania. Jakob Lohner had begun construction of automobiles in 1896 under Ludwig Lohner in the trans-Danubian suburb of Floridsdorf.
