Ferdinand Porsche is without a doubt, one of the greatest automotive engineers of the 20th century. The guy had a fascinating history, many don’t know that when he was drafted into military service in 1902 he was assigned to be the driver for Crown Prince Franz Ferdinand of Austria, the same chap whose assassination 10 years later would trigger the start of World War I.

If you’ve got a few minutes to spare, check out Ferdinand’s Wikipedia entry here, it’s a great read and will turn you into one of these people who says “did you know…” at parties.
