We’d like to wish Herbert Linge a very happy 91st birthday. Herr Linge joined Porsche in 1943 at the age of just 15. The first mechanic on the 356 production line, he was instrumental in Porsche’s early development and went on to race every car we made from the 550 Spyder to the 917.

Linge also created the idea of the safety car, for which he was awarded the Federal Cross of Merit in 1982, and helped establish our facility in Weissach — the town in which he lives to this day.
