This is the very first Porsche, made in 1898, 116 years ago. It was made by Ferdinand Porsche when he was 22 years old. It was the first car he even built. And, it was an electric car. It had a range of 50 miles and even won a race in 1899, driven by Porsche himself for 24 miles, with 4 people on board. This was a time of passionate engineering and vision, when everything seemed possible. I am sure he never imagined today's hybrid supercars like the Porsche 918, but we would never have them if it were not for innovators like this.
The car is currently on display in the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart.
