Today we remember Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, better known as Butzi, who was born on 11 December 1935.
Butzi was the eldest of Ferry’s four sons and the most intimately involved at his father’s fledgling company. Butzi is famously credited with the original design of the 911 unveiled in 1963 alongside the elegant 904 sports racer that arrived the following year.
Having worked in the Porsche Style department for a number of year he later established the Porsche Design studio, a hugely successful entity in its own right. He died in 2012 at the age of 76.
