Ferdinand A Porsche 1935-2012

Blurred 911

The designer of the Porsche 911 has passed away. FA “Butzi” Porsche was the grandson of the founder of the Porsche company and led the Porsche design studio in the early 1960s.

Here is a video with owner/creator Nakai-san.

However, this video just proves that Mark Webber drives a car that is worthy of his jawline. Gotta love the @AussieGrit.  (Video after the jump)
