Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche designed a car that instantaneously catapulted him into the pinnacle of the design world. The Porsche 911 is an icon amongst sports cars. Porsche founded Studio F.A. Porsche, an independent studio for product design in 1972 - which we wrote about in our previous Porsche Design Brand Focus
