Porsche Rental Miami, understands the importance of history. Porsche is one of the most distinguishable brands in history. As high-performance sportscars, the Porsche name has been synonymous with sports cars and racecars because that is what company Founders Ferdinand Porsche and his son Ferdinand (Ferry) set out to build when they first set up shop with 200 workers in 1948. As a young engineer, Ferdinand Porsche designed the FIRST electric/gasoline hybrid…in 1900. Throughout his career, Porsche worked with Mercedes, Diamler-Benz, Volkswagen, Auto Union, and others for more than 40 years. His independent design company is even responsible for the innovative and cutting edge design of the Volkswagen Beetle in 1931.
Not only are Porsche cars known for their speed, but they are also known for their sleek and stylish car designs. From the outside, their car styles will make car aficionados fall in love at a glance because of their timeless, chic and futuristic designs. Sports cars, coupes, executive, cabriolet and SUVs—they all have the signature Porsche guises.

Ferdinand’s son, Ferry Porsche, was born while his father was at a race. The family was born to ride. Ferry followed in his father’s footsteps becoming a draftsman and test driver as he grew older. He was also instrumental in the design of the Porsche 356. The vehicle was worked on by Ferry while his father spent 20 months in jail as a war criminal.
To keep the family afloat, Ferry designed race cars and the first-ever sports car: The 356. The 356 was legendary. It was a rear-mounted, souped-up 40-hp vehicle with a Volkswagen engine and parts sourced from wherever Porsche Rental Miami could find them. In other words, parts were shipped from Zurich, Switzerland, and more. One month after the vehicle arrived at the factory, a 356 won its first race. The model went into regular production around 1950, with the 10,000th model rolling of the assembly line in just 6 years.
Porsche plodded through the years with little to no problems like other car brands. Ferdinand did pass away in 1951 at the age of 76. However, in 1963, Porsche found its flagship vehicle. It was aptly named the Porsche 911. The vehicle had a two-liter six-cylinder engine that put out 130 hp, far more than its predecessor. The 911 also released several models including the Targa, semi-automatic, high-performance, and entry-level versions in the following decade.

In 1965, Porsche ended the 356 production, but its engine lived on in the 912. By 1978, the 944, which went on sale in 1982, was based on the 924, but the new model had a Porsche-built four-cylinder engine. The supercar debuted at the 1985 Frankfurt Auto Show, and in 1987, the 250,000th 911 rolled off the line.
Fast forward to the early 1990s and Porsche Rental Miami was in danger of being taken over by a larger company. Dr.Wendelin Wiedekin, former head of production, stepped up as CEO, helping the company restructure their development. The mid-engine Boxster was was introduced and the front-engined models were discontinued.
Built in large numbers, Porsche has four basic models on the market: The 911 Carrera, the Boxster, the Cayman, which was introduced in 2006, and the Cayenne sports SUV, which debuted in 2007. The all-new Porsche Panamera is slated to debut as a 2010 model. After decades of 9-series model names, the current roadster rolls off the tongue as easily as the cars roll off the production line in Stuttgart.
