Building its reputation on high performing, premium automobiles, the Porsche company offers sports cars with power, style and great handling. The brand has recently started manufacturing SUVs as well.
The Porsche brand began as the Porsche Engineering Office. The company was established in 1931 in Germany by Ferdinand Porsche. Ferdinand was able to open his own company after his experience working for the Daimler corporation in the 1920s. Daimler developed two Mercedes models using the expertise of Ferdinand.
The Porsche automobiles were built in Austria in the 1940s and 50s but were later manufactured in Germany. Around that time the company developed the innovative engines with air cooling.
In the 1950s the 550 Spyder and the 356 Speedster were rolled out. These cars demonstrated their performance capabilities in the racing world. The 911 coupe came out in the 60s. It had the exclusive air cooled engine.
The 914, the 924, and the 928 were introduced in the 70s. The 956 was redesigned a decade later. It offered an all wheel drive system and a twin turbo engine that reached a maximum speed of 200 miles per hour. The 924 was reinvented with a I-4 engine and the 944 was introduced.
During the 1990s the 968 was created and the 928 was taken out of the lineup. Porsche experienced some financial difficulties but was able to rebound with the introduction of the Boxter. The Cayenne SUV was unveiled early in the new millennium along with the Panamera and the Carrera GT.
The current list of Porsche models includes the Cayenne, the Cayman, the Panamera, and the 911. The Cayenne SUV has a variety of trims and fog lamps, twin region climate control, a power lift gate, leather upholstery, Bluetooth connectivity, touch command display and a sound system with ten speakers. The Cayman gets four trim options that offer air conditioning, Bluetooth and iPod connectivity, speed control, a CD player, four speakers, and high performing tires. The Panamera comes with seven trims as well as a sunroof, rear park sensory, a cooling container, a rear spoiler, xenon head lamps, a V6 engine, heated seats, navigation technology, a sound system with eleven speakers, and leather upholstery. The 911 has lots of features including leather upholstery, navigation technology, alloy wheels, heated mirror, Bluetooth and iPod interface, satellite radio, and a touch command display screen.
