+ Waldorf educated Ferdinand Porsche has passed on

FERDINAND Alexander Porsche, who designed the first 911 sports car and went on to found a consumer products design firm that also carried the Porsche name, died on Thursday in Salzburg, Austria. He was 76.


He attended the Waldorf School in Stuttgart and studied at the Ulm School of Design before starting work in the design department of the car business in 1958.

Born on December 11, 1935, in Stuttgart, Germany, he was the eldest son of Dorothea and Ferry Porsche, who, along with Ferry's father Ferdinand Porsche, founded the business that grew into the sports car maker.

He is pictured here with the 911 prototype in the early 1960's.
