William Boeing was born in 1881 to German emigrants in Detroit. He grew up to found The Boeing Company in 1916, a company that would become the Boeing we know today. Over the decades, Boeing has evolved but their latest partnership with Porsche seems to be one of the most extreme yet.
In a press release last night, both companies signaled the start of research. This will encounter miles of red tape from the FAA and its European equivalents due to decades of bureaucracy. Whatever the end result, it will be safer than private aviation, so long as you give your autonomous flying Porsche a 5-Star review. We hope this is not just a ploy to take heat off of the 737 MAX sensor debacle, so stay with us for more Porsche & Boeing new.
