Porsche System Engineering

Team logoBased in: Stuttgart
Founded: 1948 (active 1957-1964)

Principal: Ferry Porsche

The company's vast racing success has been built upon sports car racing and it was through this medium that the Porsche name appeared as modified two seaters in Formula 2 racing.

A true Formula 1 entry didn't materialise until 1961 and the team soon withdrew and concentrated on the racing it knew best. The TAG- backed turbo engine of the mid eighties was a great success but this was tempered by the disastrous V12 produced for Footwork in 1991.
