Porsche/Volkswagen Connections

  • The Porsche company was founded by Ferdinand Porsche in Stuttgart, Germany, in 1931. The company was created to provide motor vehicle development services and consulting, and did not produce any cars at first. Porsche actually designed the original Volkswagen Beetle, which became one of the most successful automobile designs the world has ever seen.
  • In 1969, Porsche and Volkswagen collaborated on the production of the VW-Porsche 914 and 914-6. The 914 had a Volkswagen engine, while the 914-6 had a Porsche engine. They collaborated once again in 1976, producing both the Porsche 912E and the Porsche 924, the latter manufactured at the Audi Neckarsulm factory, using many Audi components. The Porsche 944 was also produced at the same factory.
  • Today Porsche Cayenne parts are assembled at the Volkswagen Group factory in Bratislava, Slovakia, where the VW Touareg and Audi Q7 are produced.
  • While Porsche is currently a subsidiary of Volkswagen AG, Porsche Automobil Holding SE has majority ownership of Volkswagen.
