An engineer with a capital E, Ferdinand Porsche intended to create a unique emblem for his exclusive high-performance cars. After long consideration he finally decided upon the current logo which was chosen to glorify the free people of Württemberg. Red and black stripes and the antlers reflect part of the arms of the Kingdom of Württemberg and the black horse in the middle represents the city of Stuttgart as its capital. It is known that Stuttgart was founded on a former stud farm, hence the horse became the key element of the crest. Moreover, a horse is a symbol of speed, strength and elegance which was important for Porsche while choosing the logo.

If the SMU locker room incident did in fact happen, it’s more likely that Iacocca did it more as a teaser to garner attention for the upcoming car. Iacocca himself has told numerous people – including Bob Fria – that it never happened. Later in 1964, after the car went on sale, SMU head coach Hayden Fry, did take delivery of his own Mustang painted in the team colors of red and blue. Unfortunately, there doesn’t appear to be any credible evidence to back up what is likely nothing more than an urban legend that may well have been started by an SMU fan who was also enamored with the pony car. In the end, the name blended beautifully with a galloping horse logo that designer Phil Clark had already been dabbling with for several years. Whatever the rationale for selecting Mustang, the name still makes sense 50 years later. The car, the plane and the horse all share similar characteristics compared to others of their kind: compact, quick, agile and sleek. The same qualities are among the reasons Mustang has earned such an avid following. What’s in a name? Both less and more than you might think!

As described by Enzo Ferrari just once, the story behind the world’s most recognised car logo goes like this: “The horse was painted on the fuselage of the fighter plane of Francesco Baracca – a heroic airman of the First World War. In ’23, I met count Enrico Baracca, the hero’s father, and then his mother, countess Paulina, who said to me one day, ‘Ferrari, put my son’s prancing horse on your cars. It will bring you good luck’. The horse was, and still is, black, and I added the canary yellow background which is the colour of Modena.”

One day, Enzo Ferrari explained the case of the hopping horse logo. Actually the horse was depicted on the board of the fighter airplane of Francesco Baracca, famous heroic pilot of the World War I. In ’23, Enzo met Baracca’s father, count Enrico Baracca, and then his mum, Countess Paulina, who told to Enzo one day to put her son’s hopping horse on the cars.

An enduring question about Ford Mustang, even after nearly 50 years on the road, is the origin of its name. Does it honor the famed P-51 fighter plane of World War II? Or the wild horse of the American West? Depends who you ask. The real question for Mustang fans: Does it even matter? Is the world’s love affair with Mustang about the name? Or about a car that always has offered an appealing blend of style, performance and practicality? If you ask most people today what they think of when they hear Mustang, chances are they’ll mention the car before the horse or the plane. There long have been conflicting stories from the people who were there at the time, as well as many who weren’t, about how the name came about. As the car we know today as Mustang was developed in 1962 and 1963, a wide range of names were considered and used on the various design proposals, including Cougar, Torino, Allegro, Avventura and even Thunderbird II.

The original “prancing horse” on Baracca’s airplane was painted in red on a white cloud-like shape, but Ferrari chose to have the horse in black. Black color means a grief on Baracca’s squadron planes after the pilot was killed in action. Then Ferrari added a canary yellow background as this is the color of the city of Modena, his birthplace. The logo is crowned with green, white and red strips, which symbolize Italian national colors.

Everybody knows that a black prancing horse on a yellow background is an iconic symbol of Ferrari sports cars. But where does it come from? The story tells that in 1923 Enzo Ferrari met the mother of Francesco Baracca, an ace of Italian Air Force and the national hero of World War I. She advised Ferrari to use a prancing stallion as a symbol of fortune like her son used to paint on his planes. The famous constructor willingly accepted the idea. He made his horse black to honor memory of the pilot killed in action, and put it on a yellow shield to reflect the color of Modena, Baracca’s birthplace. The emblem also has the Italian national colors on its top. It’s interesting that Ferrari’s logo resembles much the Coat of Arms of Stuttgart in Germany which is the home to Ferrari’s rivalries Mercedes-Benz and Porsche.
