Air Cooled Porsche Service in Ann Arbor
Was the Air-Cooled Porsche Revolutionary?
The air-cooled Porsche story is one born of necessity. Professor Ferdinand Porsche didn't invent the concept of the air-cooled engine. He had previously used it in one of the most well-known vehicles of all time, the VW Type 1, also known as the “Beetle.” Tasked with creating a vehicle that could seat four passengers with luggage, cruise at 100 kph and still cost less than 1,000 Marks, the only way he could make that happen was by eliminating the heavy and expensive cooling system. Without the weight and the cost of the radiator, he could hit the targets he was given, creating the golden age of air-cooled cars.
While the air-cooled concept wasn’t new, Porsche made it revolutionary. In 1949, when the Porsche firm started to build its own cars, the need for economy was still a big consideration. The use of air-cooled technology in their cars lasted until 1997.
