April 25, 1931 German designer Ferdinand Porsche founded the Porsche company. Few people know the full name of the company: Joint-stock company of the honorary doctor of engineering sciences Ferdinand Porsche. Now Porsche is the most highly profitable car company in the world (in terms of profit from each car sold). The company has also been active for a long time in organizing sports clubs (there are Porsche clubs in many European and American countries) and competitions among various classes of their cars. We've dug into the company's archives to bring you a selection of now-discontinued Porsche models, from the first mass-produced car to well-known and street-famous models.

The best archive models of Porsche 19. Porsche 911 Carrera RS (993) (1995-1996). The RS concept meant the lightest possible version.
