Porsche Museum opens In Stuttgart

The new Porsche museum stands in the Zuffenhausen district of Stuttgart, Germany, just outside Porsche headquarters. Completed in December 2008, the display area covers 60,250 square feet featuring around 80 exhibits, many rare cars and a variety of historical models.

Display area covers more than 60,000 square feet

The museum's official opening was Jan. 31, 2009, and it is open to the public Tuesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Entrance price is 8 euros, and children 14 years and under can visit free when accompanied by an adult.

The Exhibition Area was styled and designed by the Viennese architects Delugan Meissl, and exhibits range from the legendary wheel hub motor of the Lohner-Porsche, the world’s first hybrid automobile built as far back as 1900, all the way to the latest generation of the Porsche 911.

No less than 170 architects from all over Europe applied for the project before the architects of the Delugan Meissl office won the offer in February 2005. Construction work at Porsche - platz in Zuffenhausen started just half a year later and in November 2007 the body of the Exhibition Building was lowered on to three concrete cores, the first exhibits moving into the building about a year later. The museum was handed over to Porsche on Dec. 8, 2008.
