Find Porsche news from today and latest stories covering Porsche cars from expert Torque News reporters. Since 1931, Porsche has been designing cars for the people.

From tanks and equipment to the Volkswagen Beetle, Porsche has had its place in history. Porsche’s first complete car came from the underpinnings of said Beetle, and became the 356.
