Evo India - - PORSCHE AT 70: SEVEN DECADES OF PORSCHE -

Sell enough of the most prof­itable car in the world (the 911) and it won’t be long be­fore you be­come the most prof­itable car com­pany in the world. And then you’ll get ideas above your sta­tion and try to buy one of the largest car com­pa­nies in the world. Wiedek­ing took on Fer­di­nand Piech, lost the bat­tle and nearly took Porsche down with him (Porsche racked up $10bil­lion in debt try­ing to buy VW).

Mean­while, there was a hy­brid hy­per­car, Panam­eras, Ma­cans, more spe­cial 911s and a re­turn to Le Mans. And 119 years af­ter the first, Porsche’s se­cond all-elec­tric car will soon go on sale. And Wiedek­ing? He went back to his hobby of potato farm­ing.
