To the English, the Volkswagen factory at KdF-Stadt fell at the end of Second World War in 1945. Ferdinand lost his place and an English Military Main, Ivan Hirst, was put responsible of the industrial plant. (In Wolfsburg, the Volkswagen business journal dubbed him “The English Major who preserved Volkswagen”.) On 1-5 December of that year, Ferdinand was arrested for warcrimes, but perhaps not tried. During his 20-month incarceration, the child, Ferry Porsche of Ferdinand Porsche, determined to assemble his own car, because he could not find an existent one which he desired to purchase.

In 1952, Porsche constructed an assembly place (Werk 2) down the street from Reutter Karosserie; the highway in front of Werk 1, the earliest Porsche creating, is now known as Porschestrasse.
The 356 was road licensed in 1948.
