All you need to do is talk in English and they will give you the half price ticket to the museum! Don’t forget to have your parking ticket validated as well.

There is also a small snack café down in the museum’s lobby, you can get a Boxster Burger there. Upstairs there is a really nice, high end restaurant too. They sell $$$ Porsche steaks there! lol


Directions – coming from the North.
• Freeway A 81 Stuttgart – Heilbronn (Heilbronn – Stuttgart)
• Exit Zuffenhausen
• B10 in the direction of Stuttgart Zentrum/Messe
• Just follow the signs to Porsche SE (five mins on the B10).
• Once you get to the traffic circle with the museum & dealership, turn right and park in the garage under the museum. Its on the left side of the museum.


I know there are a lot of Porsche fans here on BimmerPost… so I thought I would treat you to a very special museum. This is a MUST SEE place when coming to Germany – I think. In fact I saw THREE M3’s on ED tour while driving around near Porsche Musuem.


Ok, onto my photo tour…

I thought I would share some (more) of my photos of the Porsche museum. These photos are of the old original museum. It was really tiny, but charming and special, I kind of miss the old museum. It was located on the factory grounds… so you always got to see some “fresh” Porsches being tested out on the public streets of Zuffenhausen.

The old brick building is the current customer service dept in Werk-I. This is where the "special wishes dept" was located and where very special Porsche customers can take their car in for service or exclusive options to be installed. When I was there in 2001 I saw THREE 959's with USA tags on them. One from CA and two from Nevada I think.

Enjoy,
Dackel


Some of the street signs pointing you to Porsche.

On the B10 coming from the A-81 autobahn.


Signs to where the old museum was located…


Old museum entrance was just to the right of photo…

The old museum’s entrance…


Inside the factory, just under the old museum…

The understated entrance to the old museum…

Love those door pulls!

The old charming (small) museum…








959 concept car…











One of my favorite things about the old museum was this wall of models. Every Porsche ever made had its mini model up on that wall!



356-1 the very first car Porsche made in Gmuend, Austria.


Toys big and small…


Back outside on the streets of Zuffenhausen…

Mmmmmm….

HQ building…

Factory run and owned P-Zentrum…


Werk-1 This was where Ferry’s office was. Also the Motorsports Dept was located here. Now it is in Weissach. This is where Porsche Exclusive and the parts dept and special customer cars are serviced.

Inside Werk-I’s service dept…

993TT engine display…







Production bridge that connects the body shop with the final production hall…



Finished production cars awaiting transport to their new owners…

I think a visit the Porsche Museum is in order. Its been a few years since my last visit and my toy model car collection needs some updating.

Me too!! The Porsche Museum is a MUST SEE place.

I also really liked the Prototype Museum up in Hamburg and the Pfeiffer Museum in Gmund(where the first 52 cars were built after the war), Austria.

WHAT! What are you waiting for!!

Btw... the MB Museum is pretty interesting too. But my heart is with Porsche.

Since you are local... you could even drop by the old Porsche Family home up near the TV tower and the old Messe... It's up on the hill, from the downtown area. There is a small brown plague that states in this haus Ferdinand Porsche first assembled two prototype beetles in the 1930's. Even today I think Ursula Porsche lives there. Hardly no one knows that the Porsche's live there. Its quite cool to see history for yourself.
