Porsche history begins in the year 1900 with the presentation of the Lohner-Porsche Electric Car.
Ferdinand Porsche, founder of Porsche, was still a young engineer at the time. But his rise to fame started in 1900. Porsche then went on to working for well-known German companies such as Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen. The very first car bearing the name Porsche was introduced to the public in 1948, the Porsche 356 Roadster. Simoultaneous to its successful introduction of a street car, Porsche begins to make a name for it self on the racetrack with models similar to the strret cars.
Ferdinand Porsche Sr. dies in 1951 but the company continues on under his son Ferdinand Porsche Jr. The Roadster turns into a great star for Porsche. In 1965, at the end of production, 77,361 cars have left the factory. After this start, development of many famous models, including the 911 and 928, begins. Development on a new six-cylinder engine starts in 1961. This engine has been the foundation for many Porsche’s to come, including the latest 911s. 104 years later Porsche owners in Lebanon decided to meet and share their Porsche passion in Porsche Club at Chateau Kefraya with over 100 Porches on display.
