"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
Born in Bohemia in 1875, Ferdinand Anton Porsche, fondly known as Ferry, displayed an innate aptitude for technology and electricity from a tender age. At just 18, he embarked on his career at Bela Egger & Co Electric, where his five-year tenure culminated in the creation of their inaugural electric wheel-hub motor. Ferry Porsche's professional journey was marked by stints at various firms, each enriched by his influential contributions to the automotive design realm. Notably, he served as the personal chauffeur to Archduke Franz Ferdinand during his military service. However, it was in 1931 that Ferry Porsche etched his name indelibly in history. It was then that he founded a company destined for worldwide acclaim, pioneering the design and engineering of high-performance automobiles guided by the enduring ethos encapsulated in the quote above.
