The Company

Headquartered in Zuffenhausen at the heart of Porsche heritage, the company vision is to be “The brand for those who follow their dreams.”

“In the beginning, I looked around and could not find quite the car I dreamed of. So I decided to build it myself.”

This quote from Ferdinand Porsche sums up what Porsche is as a brand, as a company, as a car manufacturer and as an employer. The “Porsche idea” has produced unique sports cars, such as the Porsche 356 and the 911. With the combination of tradition, innovation and our employees` Porsche typical – sometimes unconventional – ways of thinking, we make automobile dreams come true and always have that “little bit more” in our sights.
