This Sunday passed away Ferdinand Karl Piëch, grandson of Ferdinand Porsche. A controversial figure in the motorsport industry, Ferdinand Piëch was at the helm of Volkswagen and Audi for many years. He is credited for saving VW from bankruptcy in the early 90’s and transforming Audi in a premium brand.
But to me, though, he will always be remembered as the father of the Porsche 917.
