This Day in the History of Design
NOTE: I've corrected my mispelling of Porsche throughout after Doug Sundseth pointed out yet again what an idiot I can be.
None of this is to disparage the things Porsche did well -- the excellent 88mm L56 cannon and the tank's armor were among the best in the world (though the IS series of Soviet tanks were also quite good).
Note 1: I think the picture you show is of a Tiger II (the sloped back of the turret is not something I've noticed in any Tiger I photo I've looked at).
Note 2: Porsche is spelled with an "s".
Enjoy your day!
