As always, I am on the look out for Porsche information, trivia, fun facts and the like to share. This time I have a birthday to celebrate. On April 25, 1931, Professor Porsche had his company officially entered in the commercial register according to Porsche.com. Which would indicate that the company is nearly 91 as you are reading this. That’s a lot of candles.
If you’re not up for cake and party hats there are a plenty of ARPCA events in the offing that are definitely celebratory in their own right (candles optional.)
