For Porsche the journey into the future is by no means a journey into the unknown. The clear, yet flexible line of the company determines our route. This way we take the values of the past and those of the present into the new millennium.
Our very products convey the fact that emotion will always be a part of our vision. The starting point for Porsche is the delight of doing your own thing. As a company we face challenges head on.
The car of the future - an idea that underlies everything we do.
Knowing how it's done.
At Porsche this knowledge has been developed over generations. But who has that much time these days? Porsche has the answer: Weissach. The nerve center of Porsche expertise is the research and development centre outside the gates of Stuttgart. Here we administer around 3550 valid worldwide patents.
Every year we add 100 more while some expire. Our company has a long tradition in marketing copyrights which stretches right back to 1931 and the very beginnings of the design office of Prof. Ferdinand Porsche.
Ideasmith, Brain Trust or Think Factory
Synonyms for the idea that Prof. Porsche wanted to realise - namely to found a (until then) unique ultramodern service company, which would supply its extensive knowledge to the motor industry.
The Weissach Development Centre, which was realised in 1972 by Ferry Porsche, the son of the company founder and creator of the vehicles bearing the family name, is the logical progression of that design office - albeit using different tools and in different dimensions.
Today, the Porsche Engineering Group, with headquarters at the Weissach site, together with its subsidiaries offers expertise worldwide to satisfy the huge demand for development services for different industries. Together with our customers from all over the world we have brought many successful products to the market in recent years.
