Ferdinand Porsche was the Porsche involved with the Tiger tanks. He found Porsche in 1931 as a consulting firm. Ferry Porsche reconstituted Porsche after the WWII. The first cars Porsche produced in 1948 were actually made by the Austrian company Ferry started because he was not allowed back in Germany.

Butzi, the grandson of Ferdinand, didn't really design the 911. Erwin Komenda did....

Regardless, that person's hate is misplaced. Nissan (Datsun) was far more heavily involved in war production than Porsche ever was.

There is no doubt Ferdinand the original was summoned by Hitler to come see him, and told to design a peoples car. What was he supposed to do, tell Hitler no?

And Ferdinand was not really involved with the 356 design, he was still in French jail. He died in 1951. Ferdinand Jr, AKA Ferry really made the company what it grew to be. His son Ferdinand, AKA Hans Peter Porsche is in control of the family that owns 51% of VW. And of course VW owns VW, Porsche, Audi, Lamborghini, Skoda, and others.

Butzi is a not really part of this conversation as Butzi never really did much at Porsche AG.

The city I live in has it's civic center named after an SS rocket scientist who built missiles for Hitler using concentration camp labor, I don't worry too much about any WWII Porsche references. They did recently move the confederate statues off the court house lawn though, guess the Jewish community is a little more tolerant than the BLM crowd. Moral of the story is about every group has had a rough go of it sometime in history, don't suffer the fool who doesn't realize this.

Nowadays, if you're a female and mouthing gems like these, your name is Karen. Apologies to all the innocents named Karen.

Thus far, there doesn't seem to be a male name that sticks as well. Stephen Miller might be a candidate..... or not. Uh oh. This might be getting perilously close to the OT forum. Apologies.

FWIW, I’ve gotten that “hitler” flak a few times. Sometimes sneeringly, sometimes they just think they are being funny. People can be unthinking sometimes...

My favorite thus far was a coworker that commented when I was working on the P car and drove the wife’s Model 3 in to work instead.

“Don’t you own any American cars?”

Several years ago when I was single, I dated a woman who requested not having to ride in my Porsche.

She is Jewish and was aware of the Hitler connection.

The relationship eventually ended but Porsche avoidance was not the reason. I understood why she felt the way she did and we have remained friends.

BTW, my grandmother's maiden name on my dad's side was......Messerschmitt.

We went to a flea market in Mass. and I parked in a handicap spot as I’m a disabled veteran. As we were returning to the car a 30-ish couple was standing by our car complaining “Like a Porsche owner needs to park there!” I walked to the passenger side and unlocked the door for my wife and the couple just stood there in silence.
Growing old isn’t for sissies...

As a jew, I'm more concerned with self-proclaimed antisemites than potential guilt by association -- e.g. https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/features/henryford-antisemitism/ -- and know folks that, to this day, will not buy/rent/drive a ford.

Ah, the Germans.

I've never trusted them since they bombed Perl Harbor way back in 1974.
