Ferdinand A. Porsche (1935-2012)

Yesterday, the automotive world has lost one of the most important and iconic sets of mind & heart as far as car design is concerned.

Ferdinand A. Porsche, grandson of the great Ferdinand Porsche who founded Porsche automobiles, was responsible for the shape of the 911 we know and love since the very early 60’s. And that is quite a legacy to leave to the rest of the world.

"Design must be functional and functionality has to be translated visually into aesthetics, without gags that have to be explained first.

A product that is coherent in form requires no adornment. It is enhanced by the purity of its form — good design should be honest.”
