Drive it!

Porsche Junior is a tractor

It has the aerodynamic contours we'd expect of a Porsche. The differential lock and broad fenders hint at a sporting pedigree. But this Porsche is no sportscar - it's a tractor.

As early as 1937, the prolific designer Ferdinand Porsche started developing a "People's Tractor" alongside the "People's Car" - the Volkswagen Beetle. By 1956, the Porsche company was offering four tractor models with varying power output and numbers of cylinders. Porsche-Diesel Motorenbau in Friedrichshafen rolled out some 120,000 tractors from 1956 to 1963. Drive It! heads out over country roads on the single-cylinder Porsche Junior.
