Christophorus has likewise stood for fascinating stories, emboldening moments, and inspirational personalities since it was founded 70 years ago. It is a uniting force, too. Now published in 13 languages, it is read by people from all different kinds of cultures and lifestyles all over the world – all of whom are united by one thing, namely their passion for the Porsche brand. 

A great deal of this passion is down to the man we honor in our dossier: Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, who created the 911 and founded his own design office 50 years ago. These days, Porsche Design is considered a fount of icons like the Chronograph I, the Fearless 28 speedboat, and its Exclusive sunglasses with interchangeable lenses. All of these products are united by F. A. Porsche’s particular design language, which was timeless, precise, and groundbreaking. But what does perfect design mean – yesterday, today, and tomorrow? We get to the bottom of this question in our focal topic.

Ferdinand Alexander Porsche made many of our dreams come true. Emma Raducanu already realized one of her greatest dreams at the age of 18. The Brit won the 2021 US Open in New York competing as a qualifier – something no other female player had ever achieved. She didn’t drop a single set in the process – and the world of tennis was turned upside down. She now features on the cover of Christophorus as a new Porsche brand ambassador.

Dreams are something which Ha Yoon concerns himself with, too. This South Korean neurosurgeon takes inspiration from his medical expertise to create fascinating works of art. Read our report from Seoul to find out what this looks like.

Dear Readers, I hope you enjoy some inspirational moments. Allow Christophorus to whisk you away to far-flung places and feel the uniting force of the global Porsche community.
