Incredibly, his Lohner-Porsche hybrid was made at the turn of the 20th century and built until 1905. Following the Second World War, Porsche, who was a member of the Nazi party, was imprisoned in France. He was eventually released in the late 1940's and the first vehicle with the Porsche name, the 356, was produced.
