Our favorite 5 quotes by Ferdinand Porsche
We, at Prekom, have had a thing about Porsches ever since we first lay an eye on these iconic beauties. Porsche cars have been our passion and producing parts for them, is still rewarding every day. I guess everything makes even more sence, when you are eye to eye with the philosophy of the master – Ferdinand Porsche.

Life itself is a race, marked by a start, and a finish. It is what we learn during the race, and how we apply it, that determines whether our participation has had particular value.

Committees are, by nature, timid. They are based on the premise of safety in numbers; content to survive inconspicuously, rather than take risks and move independently ahead. Without independence, without the freedom for new ideas to be tried, to fail, and to ultimately succeed, the world will not move ahead, but rather live in fear of its own potential.
