STUTTGART, GERMANY — Just some 70 short years ago, a man by the name of Ferry Porsche set off to continue his father's legacy as an industrial tycoon. Although Porsche was founded in 1931 as an industrial manufacturer of large machinery, it wasn't until 1948 that the company built its first sports car. Battered by World War II and with Ferdinand Porsche Sr. in custody facing wartime criminal offenses (although never officially charged), Ferry Porsche Jr. decided to get into the market of producing sports cars to save the company's future.

That's when the very first prototype number 356-001 surfaced. Disappointed by the inability to find a sports car that he liked for himself, Ferry Porsche founded his own holding company with his sister Louise and created the first 356 to fulfill his interests and to save his father's company.
