"Maundy Thursday" of 1950, the Thursday before Easter, marks the start of a new chapter in Porsche history as the first Type 356 built in Stuttgart is rolled out of the factory. Following a Porsche tradition of giving test vehicles a nickname, the car shown here is named "Ferdinand". It's a present for Professor Ferdinand Porsche on his 75th birthday on September 3, 1950 and is called a "test bench on wheels".
