The new Porsche museum stands on a conspicuous junction just outside Porsche Headquarters in Zuffenhausen. The display area covers 5600 square metres featuring around 80 exhibits, many rare cars and a variety of historical models.
The museum was designed by the architects Delugan Meissl. The exhibition spaces were designed by HG Merz who was also involved in the building of the award winning Mercedes-Benz Museum.
On October 17 in 2005 the construction of the museum was officially kicked off. The 8th of December in 2008 the muesum was handeed over to the client and opened one month later, the 28th of January officiallly. Since 31st January 2009 it has opened its doors to visitors.
The result is an exhibition that focuses firmly on the vehicles showcased. All ancillary architectural, media and typographic elements are designed to be unobtrusive and complement the cars.
The museum, which is as flexible as it is exclusive, functions as a home base for the vehicles.
