From Racing To The Road: Porsche Innovations

911 Carrera RS 2.7 rear

Like a few other brands, Porsche was formed many decades ago not so much to build the perfect road car, but to support a racing program. These were cars that were as at home in the French Alps as they were on the Nurburgring, and many owners took their cars racing on the weekends in the initial years of the 356 and the 550 Spyder.

However, because of that racing program, Porsche also rapidly advanced technologies and designs that would impact the world of cars as a whole in decades to come. Of all of them, three innovations stand out as purely Porsche. These are things that we consider standard today without sparing a second thought, and you might be surprised to learn that it was that little company from Stuttgart that made these things possible.
