About This Quiz

Most auto lovers would agree that Porsche makes some fantastic sports cars. There is just some about that fine German engineering that sets hearts aflutter around the world.

And Porsche has a long history indeed. Although the company only produced cars from after the Second World War, Ferdinand Porsche was involved in automotive design for many years before that. Unbelievably, Porsche not only created the first gasoline-electric hybrid vehicle but he also designed possibly the most famous car ever produced, the Volkswagen Beetle.

Incredibly, his Lohner-Porsche hybrid was made at the turn of the 20th century and built until 1905. Following the Second World War, Porsche, who was a member of the Nazi party, was imprisoned in France. He was eventually released in the late 1940's and the first vehicle with the Porsche name, the 356, was produced.

And that was the start of something special. Preferring rear-engine, rear wheel drive designs, Porsche not only made road cars but several early racing cars as well, some of which appeared in early Formula One racing.

In the 2000's, the Porsche design branched out further to include a four-door luxury sedan with that distinctive Porsche look, a luxury grand tourer, and even an SUV.

Now would you be able to identify these different Porsche models from just an image?
