Iconic Designs: Porsche

Haven’t done an Iconic Design post in a while, and I’m sad to be compelled to do so upon learning that Ferdinand Porsche died today.

Whether you feel the Porsche design (particularly the 911) signifies all that is right with automotive design, or a feeble attempt made by middle-aged men to recapture something lost (or both/in-between), it undeniably stands the test of time, and illustrates Mr. Porsche’s mantra:

“Design must be functional and the functionality must be visually implemented without gags that need to be explained.”
