Dr. Wolfgang Porsche’s Extensive Car Collection
May 10, 2018, was the 75th birthday of Dr. Wolfgang Porsche, youngest son of Porsche 356-creator Ferdinand “Ferry” Porsche. While he hasn’t played such a key role in the Stuttgart company as his father or his brother “Butzi” Porsche, the creator of the 911, Wolfgang has spent his time as the company’s spokesman upholding his family’s legacy and, of course, maintaining a huge collection of Porsche sports cars.
In the most recent episode of the Porsche Top 5 series, Dr. Porsche takes the brand’s YouTube channel through some of the highlights of his car collection at the family’s Schüttgut estate in Zell am See, Austria. As you might expect, the man takes care of a fair number of rare classics, including an Irish Green 1962 356 Carrera 2000 and California-optimized 1952 356 America Roadster.
Dr. Wolfgang’s reasons for the cars in his collection are echoed in the Porsche brand’s ideology, which continues to value refinement over total innovation to continue to perfect the quintessential sports car.
