Where does the Porsche logo come from?

The Porsche logo has a long and rich history, beginning in 1931 when Porsche Automobil Holding SE was created by Ferdinand Porsche, a Czech engineer. Many Americans believe the automake’s logo was created when Ferdinand Porsche’s son, Ferry, sketched the design on a napkin during a meal with American Porsche distributer, Max Hoffman, at a restaurant in New York.

Many Germans disagree with this story and believe the logo was created and dsigned by engineer Franz Xaver Reimpiess. Additionally, the meaning of the Porsche crest is what is most significant. The design of the logo itself was based on the Free People’s State of Württemberg’s coat of arms, this due to the fact that Porsche’s headquarters are located in Stuttgart, Württemberg’s capital. Built atop a stud farm—or horse-breeding farm—Stuttgart has used horses in its city seal since the 14th century, which is why the Porsche logo depicts a black horse.
