    How sad... the end of an era, the passing of a great man and designer.

    A moment of silence                                                   Smiley

    Long live all the old 911s Smiley  THANK YOU Ferdinand Alexander!

    In a way, he will live on in his designs and creations...


    Re: F A Porsche deceased

    Wow, so sad!
    It is a good feeling that this man did not just leave this world; he gave us the timeless design of the 911.
    I wish his family and beloved ones all the strength to cope with this loss.

    Re: F A Porsche deceased

    Porsche's current design language for all their five model ranges is based on F A Porsche's original 911 of 1963.

    In the intervening years Porsche brought out other attractive designs too, in the form of the 924/944/968 and 928, but only the design theme set by F A P. endured.

    His aesthetic influence on this famous marque has been very great indeed.

    RIP "Butzi".

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.


    Re: F A Porsche deceased

    He departed too soon. I am sure his family and friends will miss him very much. His imprint on automotive design was a incredible artistic achievement. Professionally, how can you top having created a international design shape Icon?  RIP FA.


    Re: F A Porsche deceased

    Rip

    He achieved what so many are trying - becoming immortal!

    Re: F A Porsche deceased

    How many people achieve something in their lives that ensures that they will be remembered and respected for years after they pass away? It's a sign of greatness.
