Ferdinand Alexander Porsche AKA Butzi

To some of us die hard Porsche people being born into the Porsche family is like being descended from royalty. Of all the children of Porsche, FA “Butzi” Porsche has probably had the most impact through his design work of the original 901 and the 904. While the 901 design was tweaked and changed by other people in the company, the 904 was a pure Butzi design, due in part to the strict time constraints the company had to make the car. The 904 was his Howard Roark moment.
After leaving the Porsche company he went on to start the Porsche Design firm, which is best known for its watches, but has designed lots of other stuff. FA Porsche left the firm in 2005.
Being born into royalty was not enough for this grandson of Porsche, he set out to prove he was a Porsche, and he did it!
