The Deep South had a shoreline that curled through the Carolinas, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi, and there, in the shallow waters just offshore, were immense populations of floating, single-celled creatures who drifted about, trapped sunshine, captured carbon, then died and sank to the sea bottom. Those creatures became long stretches of nutritious chalk.
When sea levels dropped and North America took on its modern shape, those ancient beaches — so alkaline, porous and rich with organic material — became a "black belt" of rich soil, running right through the South.
Standing out in such an environment is not easy. Car design is less restricted, but still, every decade, you see car designs react to new technologies and new regulations and end up in a place where they become forgettable. This is not true of Porsche. As one Porsche design expert is said to have told his underlings, “You are not here to design the most beautiful sports car, you are here to design the best Porsche.” The design language of the Porsche brand is “iconic.”
