Ferdinand Porsche's life is a story of a man who owes his success mainly due to his passion and hard work. Initially, he also had to face the resistance of his own father who did not share his son's passion. He came to live in difficult times. Why was a man who from the beginning had been considered an apolitical idealist so quick to begin working with the Nazi government of Adolf Hitler? What was Porsche's contribution to the development of hybrid and electric models so popular today? What was the birth of the famous ‘hunchback’, produced in the twenty-first century, or nearly 5 decades after the death of its creator?

The development of the Volkswagen Beetle was a central achievement in the early history of the Porsche Company. In January 1934, Ferdinand Porsche wrote an exposé regarding the construction of a German people's car that would have a lasting effect on automotive history. The inexpensive compact automobile would become the symbol and icon of mass motorisation. The Volkswagen, also lovingly known as the VW Beetle, was one of the most popular automobiles in the world. And it was also a leader in terms of production duration and quantity. It was first discontinued in July 2003 when the last Volkswagen left the assembly line in Mexico. With 21.5 million cars, the VW Beetle is by far one of the most-built automobiles in the world. This book is a comprehensive documentation of the history of the VW Beetle's development, containing largely unpublished pictorial and documentary material from the holdings of the Porsche archive. Published as part of the collectible series of books in the Edition Porsche Museum. English and German text.

When Ferdinand Porsche was born Europe was peaceful, developing, capitalist and largely feudal. Britain was the world's only true 'superpower', and America would not emerge as an economic giant for at least forty-five years. Motor cars, aircraft, television, computers, ballpoint pens and other modern conveniences didn't exist. Ninety-five years after Porsche's arrival in the world, cars bearing his name were in action at Le Mans, their 4.5-litre 12-cylinder air-cooled engines propelling them to speeds of 240mph. Conventional wisdom dictated that air-cooling was unsuited to high-speeds. Under the inspired leadership of three generations of the family, Porsche proved, and continues to prove, that traditional rules are there to be broken. With more than a score of books to his credit on the great German marques, Laurence Meredith brings a unique authority to this, his eighth Porsche-related work, and the first to examine the prime movers and master engineers behind this most hallowed of motoring icons.
