Advertising Posters to
the Porsche victories
The Poster Archives give
descriptions and photos of the posters in the
Porsche Factory Archives. Many photos are copies
from poor quality secondary photographs. In time we
hope to replace them with better photos. About half
of the Porsche posters shown here are presently for
sale in our Poster Store. If they are available
there will be a price listed.
We are including the
non-inventory posters as a resource for those
interested in Porsche poster history. This page will
eventually link to a biography of Erich Strenger,
the almost legendary designer of many of the posters
commemorating Porsche racing victories.
Note: Serveral visitors have asked about the
"Porsche Archives". This is not an
official title, but one that has been given by us to
the collection of Poster photographs maintained in
the "Historisches Archiv", at Porsche AG.
It seems that Porsche has not always kept copies of
the posters that they have made to advertise their
racing triumphs. The "Historisches Archiv"
has been photographing posters, both in their
collection and in the collections of others. With
the photographs is a list of information, as seen on
our poster pages. In many cases, the information is
incomplete. Where we have the posters, we have added
additional details. It is obvious that some of the
posters shown in the archives are printed by others
and therefore not "Porsche factory
posters". They are, never-the-less, in the
"Historisches Archiv", and we have shown
them. In some cases we have shown posters that are
printed by the factory that do not have an archive
number. We assume that the factory has just not
gotten around to photographing them, or that they
have been photographed since we saw the archives.
