Who are Porsche?
Ferdinand Porsche was born in 1875. Just 23 years later he designed and built the P1, one of the first vehicles ever registered in Austria.
From these beginnings Porsche created one of the world’s most famous brands. In 1933 came the first Grand Prix race car, while the original Beetle was launched in 1934. The Porsche 911, arguably the company’s best-known model, arrived in 1964.
The company had another big year in 1996, when the millionth Porsche was sold. Ten years later a museum dedicated to these remarkable cars opened its doors next to the company headquarters in Zuffenhausen, near Stuttgart in Germany.

Can I cut the cost of my Porsche insurance?
No one buys a Porsche to be economical, but that doesn’t mean your car insurance needs to break the bank.
To keep your premium low, don’t customise your Porsche – modifying cars will increase your insurance. Instead invest in security and keep your car safe overnight. This will let your insurance provider know you’re a lower risk. Bear in mind that you may need to speak to them directly to get a discount on your premium. It’s always worth building your no claims discount.
