Porsche is a leading German automaker. Ferdinand Porsche founded the company in 1931, which only did vehicle development work and consulting. Porsche was tasked with designing the "people’s car" in the 1930s which resulted in the development of the Volkswagen Beetle.
Since parts were in short supply post- World War II, the Porsche 356 automobile used pieces from the Volkswagen Beetle, like its engine case and parts of its suspension.
Porsche's most reported problem on RepairPal is associated with coolant issues on some Porsche 911 models.
