Feridinand Porsche... did you know he was a chauffer in the military?

He was the chauffeur for Archduke Ferdinand of Austria, after being drafted for military duty.

This was at a point in his life (age 27) when he was already making cars, significantly, the Lonher Porsche hybrid, and he'd been racing that in 1900... so the Archduke has some pull in the personnel dept... to get a race car driver as his Chauffer!
