Stuttgart special: inside Porsche’s magnificent museum

Classic & Sports Car Logo By Martin Buckley of Classic & Sports Car | Slide 1 of 14: Porsche opened its first museum in 1976, but it was a modest affair that housed just 20 cars – hardly fitting for one of the greatest names in sports cars. Not until 2009 did the German marque create a more suitable home for its collection of 300 historic cars – but it was worth the wait. Even before you view its contents, the dramatic €100m structure – situated close to the Porsche HQ in Stuttgart – proves an arresting treat for fans of modern architecture, a monochromatic building of angular elegance ‘floating’ on three huge pylons. The real joy for Porsche fans, though, is found inside the museum – and, as befits a brand known for technological advancement and driving performance, it’s an astonishing place.
