In the News "Ferdinand A. Porsche, who designed the original Porsche 911, the snazzy, powerful sports car that became the lasting signature of the German automobile company founded by his grandfather and later run by his father, died on Thursday in Salzburg, Austria. He was 76." I believe only Italians can design beautiful cars (I mean, game over, kids), but there's no denying that the 911 is a true icon. Cars technically don't have a place on OSNews, but Ferdinand Porsche's passing cannot go by unmentioned.

Wasn't it Enzo Ferrari who called the Jaguar E-type "The most beautiful car ever made" when it was released? There's plenty of beautiful cars that aren't italian...


I'm the only person in the world who thinks the E-type if FUGLY. I'm not kidding. It's basically a penis with wheels. I hate that thing.
