This was his grandson, also named Ferdinand Porsche, who went by "Butzi" early in his life, and "F.A." later on.

If you're going to piss on someone's memory because of stuff his grandfather did, you might as well hang yourself for what your ancestors (and mine) did to the Indians, the Chinese, the Irish, the Africans, and so very many others.

Father: Ferdinand Porsche - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Son: Ferdinand Anton Ernst Porsche - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Grandson: Ferdinand Alexander Porsche - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Thanks for the clarification.
I stand corrected.

I also am not a believer in visiting the sins of the parents on the children.

Not to mention that these days a lot of us would get pretty conflicted on that, seeing as how some of our ancestors were in those "done to" groups, while others were in the doers. And of course, at various times the "done tos" were trying to do right back, if not get theirs in first...

Sorry to hear about Butzi may he RIP. I owned a few Porsches and they were all engineering marvels for their time period. But IMO Porsche lost it's soul when it built than stinken SUV Wasn't too crazy about the 928 eithe for that matter
