The Porsche 108 was the smallest and most attractive of four tractors produced by Porsche from 1956 to 1963. The tractors were produced at the old Zeppelin factory in Friedrichs-hafen-Manzell, Germany. The appeal of the Porsche built tractors can be attributed to much more than just their stunning looks.
Porsche tractors were designed with a fluid coupling to connect the engine to a six speed transmission – a distinctive feature of Porsche’s tractors which offered the driver smooth gear changes. In 1960, Porsche introduced a new Bosch hydraulic lifting system, a significantly improved design when compared to the earlier 1956-59 tractors. By 1963, production of Porsche tractors had ceased. Their compact styling and Porsche heritage have made restored Juniors a popular collectable item among Porsche car owners and vintage tractor collectors.
