Description
Ferdinand Porsche (3 September 1875 – 30 January 1951) was an automotive engineer and founder of the Porsche car company. He is best known for creating the first gasoline-electric hybrid vehicle (Lohner-Porsche), the Volkswagen Beetle, the Mercedes-Benz SS/SSK, several other important developments and Porsche automobiles. In addition, Porsche designed the 1923 Benz Tropfenwagen, which was the first racing car with a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive layout.



In January 1951, Ferdinand Porsche died in Stuttgart at the age of 76. His grave is located in Zell am See, where his urn is buried in the House Chapel of the Loft. The Porsche Museum in Stuttgart and the Porsche-Automuseum-Gmünd showcase his work. Also a museum of his grandson Ernst Piech, in Mattsee reminds him of him.
