A Brief History of Porsche

Porsche, the legendary maker of German sports cars, was founded in Stuttgart, a long way from Boise, in 1931 by Ferdinand Porsche. In the beginning, Porsche did not make cars, trucks, or SUVs; rather, he offered consulting services and motor vehicle development work. The first Porsche, the Porsche 64, was developed in 1939 using parts and components from the Volkswagen (VW) Beetle. Throughout much of the 1930s and 1940s, Ferdinand Porsche worked with VW on the iconic Beetle.

On June 8, 1948, the Porsche 356/1 Roadster, also known as the “Gmünd Roadster,” was road certified, marking the first vehicle to bear the Porsche name. Since 1948, Porsche has had one iconic sports car after another, including:

  • 1952 Porsche 550 Spyder
  • 1975 Porsche 911 Turbo
  • 2014 Porsche Macan Turbo

Porsche Today

Today, Porsche owners in Boise own and drive many different models of this luxury brand. The current lineup includes:

Porsche 718

The Porsche 718 is often referred to as the Boxster and the Cayman. The Porsche Boxster is a mid-engine, two-seat roadster. The Boxster is one of the more popular Porsche models for drivers due to its gorgeous styling, convertible top, and lower entry price compared to other Porsche models. The Porsche Cayman, another two-seat, mid-engine vehicle, is popular with those who prefer a hardtop. Many people bring their Porsche Boxster and Porsche Caymans to Oscar's Automotive for auto repair and maintenance.

Porsche 911

When people think of Porsche, they often think of the 911. Here at Oscar's Automotive, we often perform repairs and maintenance on the 911. The Porsche 911 has set the standard for what a rear-engine sports car should be. Some of the common models of the Porsche 911 are the Carrera and the Targa. The Porsche Carrera is available in a cabriolet and a hardtop, while the Targa name refers to its removable Targa top.

Porsche Panamera

The Porsche Panamera, which was released in 2010, was a game-changer for Porsche and for Porsche enthusiasts. The Panamera was the first four-seat Porsche and it maintained the exquisite styling, legendary Porsche performance while accommodating the needs of families with its four door integration. The Panamera made the Porsche brand accessible to a wider range of owners, which ultimately brought more Porsches to Oscar's Automotive for service.

Porsche Cayenne

One of the most popular Porsche vehicles in Boise is the Porsche Cayenne. The Cayenne brought the SUV to Porsche, meaning [county] drivers didn’t have to sacrifice cargo space and off-road capabilities for the opportunity to drive a Porsche.
