4.6.2012 Frankfurt Germany:
Ferdinand (F.A.) Porsche, dead at 76.
The much loved designer of the forever young Porsche 911, died April 5, 2012, in Salzburg, Austria.
In the early 1960's, the Porsche company needed a replacement for the very popular Porsche 356, which was in need of a revision to keep up with the changing auto industries improving models. While highly refined and very successful in daily transportation and racing duties, the 356 was born out of World War II technology using Dr. Porsche's VW platform.
The 356 redesign was taken on by then head of Porsche design studio, Ferdinand Porsche.
Following the overall design criteria of the first 356, with a its sloping front and rear sections and rear air cooled engine, the outcome of Ferdinand Porsche efforts was the more sleek and more powerful 6 cylinder, 901 design (soon renumbered to 911). Although the 911 was first rebuffed by the strong hearted Porsche 356 lovers, the 911 model still lives and races on in its basic 1963 design form, a sloping front and rear, 2 door, with a 6 cylinder rear engine.
