Ferdinand Porsche’s name echoes so far into automotive history and resonates with so many different manufacturers it would take pages and pages to cover. He was a man of singular vision, producing classics like the Mercedes Compressor to huge success on the racetrack. But Porsche wouldn’t deem it necessary to open his own facilities until 1931, when he had already been in the business for more than 30 years. Still, a late start is better than no start, and Porsche birthed a legacy that persists yet today.

The Porsche 911 is one of the most recognizable rides on the road. The automaker has expanded its line to include the Cayenne mid-size SUV and the Porsche Boxster, a car that handily competes with other European daily drivers. The brand still has strong roots in racing industry, and shares a celebrated rivalry with supercar manufacturer Ferrari. Persistence is the name of the Porsche game. It is a company that has weathered a fickle industry with a stability that is surely the envy of the industry.

Resources

Porsche
The official Porsche page perfectly reflects the steadfastness of the brand. The site is simple, clean, and extremely informative. Porsche leaves the fancy advertising gimmicks to its competitors, and focuses on exactly what we love about their vehicles: pure performance and gorgeous styling.

Porsche on Wikipedia
The Porsche page at Wikipedia takes a reverse route to the typical auto page. The site starts at the end, showcasing Porsche’s laundry list of recent accomplishments, and moving into the history of the brand. Again, we love how this emphasizes the steady pace with which Porsche has remained at the top of the industry. We would love to see some more legacy pics here, but they offer a nice sales breakdown of the past three years in the pictures’ stead.

Porsche at Autoblog
These two titans of their respective industries make for one great blog. The boys at Autoblog never miss a beat for us, and they’re reporting on Porsche this time. Could the reading get any better? We thought not. Autoblog updates ridiculously often, so keep this one bookmarked and check back often.

Porsche at Motor Trend
Listing both Motor Trend and Autoblog always feels a little redundant, but the two have very distinct differences in style and reporting habits. At Autoblog, you’ll get the big stories mixed in with plenty of daily news. Here, you’ll find lengthy features on the biggest industry stories. And you gotta hand it to Motor Trend, they have one of the best garages around, so cross your fingers they get a look at that new Cayman.
