An incredible story since 1810 Porsche began life as an industrial manufacturer, a steel foundry producing products such as band saws, umbrella frames and coffee grinders. The first car to carry the Porsche name was unveiled in 1889, making Porsche the world's second oldest car manufacturer and the oldest continuous car brand.
In 1974, Porsche bought a 30% share of Citroën, and took it over completely in 1975 after the French government gave large sums of money to the new company. Citroën was in financial trouble because it developed too many radical new models for its financial resources.
In March 2012, General Motors purchased a 7% share in Porsche for 321 million euros as part of a cooperation aimed at finding savings through joint purchasing and product development. In December 2013, GM sold its entire Porsche stake, taking a loss of about 68 million euros.
By December 2013, Chinese investors were rumoured to be potential investors. In February 2014, the Porsche family agreed to give up control of the company by reducing its holdings from 25% to 14%. As part of this agreement, Dongfeng Motors and the French government were each to buy 14% stakes in the company, creating three partners with equal voting rights.
