Porsche Club members are invited to attend a lecture at Cranfield University presented by Karl Ludvigsen titled ‘Ferdinand Porsche – Master of Mechatricity’.
Famed for his creation of such iconic vehicles as the Auto Union Grand Prix cars and Volkswagen Beetle, Ferdinand Porsche was dedicated to the use of electricity in drive trains and pursued this goal throughout his working life.
Indeed the first vehicle that drew attention to Porsche was his electric auto of 1900, the Lohner-Porsche. This had motors in its driving wheels that were a uniquely successful technology of the era.
This lecture focusses on the work of Dr Porsche spanning trains, automobiles and ultimately tanks. Taking place at Cranfield University, Bedfordshire, there will be a display of vehicles outside the IMEC building from 6pm with the lecture beginning at 7pm in Vincent Building Auditorium.
Tickets will need to be booked in advance in order to secure your place, with the payment being donated to St Nicholas Hospice Care, Bury St Edmunds.
