Porsche Passing

Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, the man credited with designing the Porsche 911 died yesterday in Salzburg, Austria. What better way to honor him than a post of Porsches. They are all so pretty that I couldn't just limit myself to just the 911.  I think the Porsche 356 Speedster that was designed by Ferry Porsche is one of my favorite designs. Which one is yours?
