Sensational Porsche World Premiere
ATLANTA - From the beginning of
the 20th century, the name Porsche has been associated with
pioneering innovations in automotive engineering. Ferdinand
Porsche, the founding father of the present-day Dr. Ing. h.c. F.
Porsche AG, Stuttgart, entered unchartered territory in 1900
with the creation of the first fully-functional hybrid car in
the world, the 'Semper Vivus' ('always alive').
In a stunning four-year project
the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart has recreated the Semper Vivus
to its original glory. One-hundred eleven years after Ferdinand
Porsche's ground breaking innovation, the Semper Vivus will
commemorate Porsche's lengthy dedication to ground-breaking
hybrid technology with an appearance at the 2011 Geneva Motor
Show. It will subsequently be on display as part of the Porsche
Museum collection in Stuttgart.
