Porsche's Full History Now on DVD
“This is the first time that a car maker is presented so exhaustively on a DVD”, says Dieter Landenberger, the Director of the Porsche Archives.
According to the press release, the film starts with the lifetime achievements of Ferdinand and Ferry Porsche and focuses in eight chapters on the development of the famous sports car manufacturer, proceeding from one decade to the next.
Based on the Archives Collection with more than 5,000 hours of footage, the DVD is said to present numerous film extracts never seen before. Former racing drivers such as Hans Herrmann, Eberhard Mahle, and Paul Ernst Strähle as well as former employees of Porsche such as the “Engine King“ Hans Mezger or Dr. Heinz Rabe, formerly the Director of the Porsche Social Affairs Department, also make an appearance.
With music composed specifically for the film, the DVD is available in German and English at the Porsche Museum Shop for 24.90 euros.
