Ferdinand Alexander Porsche

Ferdinand Alexander Porsche died yesterday March 5, 2012.  Son of Ferry Porsche and grandson of Dr. Ferdinand Porsche, he was the designer of the original Porsche 911.  He also drafted the Porsche 904 and he is quoted as saying it was his favorite design. The 911 needs no introduction as it is one of the most enduring and extraordinary automobile designs.  In my opinion the Porsche 904 is sublime.

I took this photograph of a 904 GTS at the 2010 concours of the 356 Registry in Cleveland, Ohio

Here is a Porsche 911SC at Le Mans in 1984
