Celebrating 70 years of Porsche

Celebrating 70 years of Porsche


Some things don’t change. The dream of a perfect sports car drove Ferry Porsche to create the very first Porsche sports car on 8 June 1948, and that dream is still alive today, 70 years on. Porsche will celebrate this landmark date in a series of events throughout the year, that include the UK-wide Sportscar Together Day events, a special celebration at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and the Festival of Porsche at Brands Hatch.

On 8 June this year Porsche will look back to the launch of its first sports car – the legendary 356 No. 1. Porsche sports cars have always been more than just cars. They have been fuelled by moments so valuable and exciting you had to share them with others.
