I couldn't find the sports car of my dreams, so I built it myself.

— Ferdinand Porsche

The most strong Ferdinand Porsche quotes that may be undiscovered and unusual

Design must be functional and functionality must be translated into visual aesthetics, without any reliance on gimmicks that have to be explained.


In the beginning I looked around and, not finding the automobile of my dreams, decided to build it myself.


Porsche....there is no substitute


The perfect racing car crosses the finish line first and subsequently falls into its component parts.


If one does not fail at times, then one has not challenged himself.


Life itself is a race, marked by a start, and a finish.

It is what we learn during the race, and how we apply it, that determines whether our participation has had particular value. If we learn from each success, and each failure, and improve ourselves through this process, then at the end, we have fulfilled our potential and performed well.


Committees are, by nature, timid. They are based on the premise of safety in numbers; content to survive inconspicuously, rather than take risks and move independently ahead. Without independence, without the freedom for new ideas to be tried, to fail, and to ultimately succeed, the world will not move ahead, but rather live in fear of it's own potential


Change is easy. Improvement is far more difficult
