Ferdinand Porsche Dies
#1 Apr 5, 2012
As an American/German Porsche Master Technician and licensed Aircraft Technician I have always admired the design brilliance of the Porsche family and all the skilled workers, machinists, assemblers and workers that brought the Porsche and Volkswagen products to market. My first new car was a 1970 VW Beetle and I owned a 1957 Porsche Speedster. Their cars always appealed to me and made sense in design and function. I have worked on most every European import here but the cars created by VW and Porsche were always special to me. I was told that my Grandmother was from Stuttgart and I would love to live in Germany and meet and visit so many of the people and places that make the products. I always respected their discipline and methods. They have been teachers and leaders in the technical world on design and procedures for so many decades and I feel they should have deserved more credit for what they accomplished. They did the impossible with a small company for so long against so many odds and yet every time were able to create improved designs. I am sad to see the passing of Butzi and wish the the best for the Porsche family and relatives. The world will not see men like this again. It is sad to see them go but their gifted brilliance has left so much behind for others, it is hard to imagine. Thank you Ferdinand and God Bless you!
