Porsche Logo Meaning

The horse on the Porsche logo, which was taken from Stuttgart’s Coat of Arms, represents the stud farm (a term for a horse-breeding farm, so “stud farm” in German is Stuttgart or Stuotgarten) on which the city was built.

In addition, The antlers and the black/red stripes on the logo were influenced by the Free People's State of Württemberg seal, as the state colors are black and red.

Porsche Logo Origins

While the creation of the Porsche logo isn’t completely agreed on, Germans contend that the Porsche crest was designed by engineer Franz Xaver Reimspiess.

However, North Americans believe that Ferdinand Porsche’s son, Ferry Porsche, drew the Porsche logo on a napkin during a meal with Max Hoffman, the American Porsche distributor. After bringing the logo design back to Germany, Ferry Porsche had it polished up and put on the company’s cars.

No matter the origins, the iconic Porsche crest was introduced to the American market in 1952 and has become an easily recognized symbol for luxury and power in the automotive industry.
