FounderEdit

Ferdinand Porsche was born to a German-speaking family of Maffersdorf, Bohemia, son of Anton Porsche (1845–1908) and Anna Ehrlich.

Porsche nameEdit

The Sudeten German surname Porsche can be traced to the 18th century in the area of Reichenberg (now Liberec), Bohemia.[3] The surname originates with the German word Bursche ("boy, young man, apprentice, farmhand") and is on record in northern Bohemia in various spellings (Porsch, Borsche, Borsch, Bursche, Bursch, Pursch, Pursche, etc.) from the early 17th century.
