If you think of Porsche, you'll usually imagine a grandiose sports car. The tractors from Porsche's Friedrichshafen tractor factory however are much less well known. Of the four model series of these diesel tractors, the vehicles of the Master Series were the largest models with the highest performance. Only 1175 Master 491s were built by the end of production in July 1963. It cost about 15,290 Deutschmarks (approx. £7145) with the basic equipment. Today as an old-timer, it's a fan favourite of high collection value and an extremely popular photographic subject at commercial vehicle fairs.
An impressive beauty with the typical signature of Ferdinand Porsche.
Until the 50's, tractors were utility vehicles, with no real aesthetic pretensions. It was the tractors from Porsche that lent new elegance to the sober world of motorized workhorses. With its round, drawn-forward bonnet, the red paint job and the decorative chrome trim, the so-called Red Noses were eye-catchers to be marvelled at. The Master tractors unified the most modern technology and a high degree of elegance for the first time, to the delight of owners and users.
