23 Vintage Photos of a Porsche Factory in the Early 1970s

It was founded in 1931 by Ferdinand Porsche, an Austro-Hungarian engineer born in Maffersdorf, Austria-Hungary. Porsche is also known for designing the first Volkswagen, but Béla Barényi is credited with having conceived the basic design five years earlier. The company currently produces 911 (997), Boxster and Cayman sports cars and Cayenne sport utility vehicles. The latest model line, the four-door Panamera saloon (sedan), was launched on Monday, 20 April 2009. In August 2009, Porsche SE and Volkswagen Group (Volkswagen AG) reached an agreement that Volkswagen AG and Porsche AG would merge in 2011, to form an “Integrated Automotive Group.

These fascinating photographs were taken in 1972 that show what a Porsche factory looked like in the early 1970s.
