Stuttgart. Timed to coincide with the sales launch in Germany, the museum of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, is also set to launch the latest high performance sports car from Zuffenhausen: from November 21 to 29, 2009, interested parties can come and see the new 911 Turbo in an exhibition alongside its predecessors. Visitors can enjoy an insight into the development of the seventh generation Turbo. An exclusive prototype of the new 500 horsepower 911, used by the Porsche engineers for testing, will be on show.
At the same time as this launch, the museum is also publishing the book, "Porsche Turbo Stories". The fourth volume from the in-house publishers, "Edition Porsche-Museum", contains a 224 page presentation of the 30 year history of the top model of the 911 sports car range - from the first 911 Turbo 3.0 in 1974 to the latest model. Previously unpublished pictures from the company archive and a selection of the most attractive advertisements give the reader a new insight into Porsche's flagship model. The book is available from the Porsche Museum shop for 14.90 Euros, in German and English.
The Porsche Museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday, from 9 am to
6 pm. Further information is available on the internet at www.porsche.com/museum.
