"In the beginning, I looked around and could not find the car I'd been dreaming of: a small, lightweight sports car that uses energy efficiently. So I decided to build it myself."
-- Ferry Porsche

Ferdinand Anton Porsche, or Ferry as he was known, was born in Bohemia in 1875 and showed an aptitude for technology and electricity from a very young age. When he was 18, he landed a job with Bela Egger & Co Electric, and during his five year stint, built their first electric wheel-hub motor. Over the years, Porsche worked for different companies, leaving his mark in the automobile-design world and, while in the military, even served as chauffeur to Archduke Franz Ferdinand. Porsche founded what would become a world-wide phenomenon in 1931, designing and engineering high-performance cars guided by the quote above.

The Porsche Principle is what drives us at Porsche Columbus everyday just as it does Porsche engineers, designers, and executives alike. With every model year and every Porsche vehicle that makes it from the drawing board to the assembly line and finally to our inventory to be driven away by drivers like you, we come closer to achieving the perfect sports car. We know there's still work to do to reach that goal, which is why we let this principle inspire us. In this 21st century, it's even more important as we're using energy in a more efficient way and defining how we engineer Porsche differently. We're still striving for perfection, just like Ferdinand Porsche did all those years before. We believe he would be proud of what we've accomplished and are still creating.
