Over 60 years of awe-inspiring and moving stories – ample reason to collect your car from our factory in Zuffenhausen. If you want to collect your new Porsche directly from our headquarters, you can expect not only a day that is full of anticipation, but also a whole day’s journey of discovery through the fascinating world of Porsche. Find out how your day at Zuffenhausen might look in detail on the following pages.
Guided tour of the factory.
You will seldom get closer to the professionals who build a Porsche. The guided tour through the production area will give you a completely new view of our cars. From engine construction, through the upholstery shop to final assembly – culminating, of course, in the most emotional moment, the so-called marriage: the uniting of drivetrain and chassis with the body. Our guided tours of the works are steeped in tradition. They are led by Porsche enthusiasts whose passion and knowledge about the Porsche brand has grown over many years.
A guided tour of the factory generally takes about 1.5 hours and is conducted in both German and, by arrangement, in English. We would like to point out that, for internal operating reasons, a full tour is not always possible. And, for safety reasons, unfortunately children under 12 are not allowed.
At Porsche, collecting your car from the factory is an experience – for all of your senses. We are therefore pleased to invite you, between 11:15 and 13:30 hrs to a culinary three-course feast in the VIP restaurant. Take a moment to relax – even if it’s not that easy when you are about to be handed the keys to your new Porsche.
You can see how strongly the future is determined by the tradition of the Porsche brand in a visit to the Porsche Museum.
Around 80 cars and numerous small exhibits await you in a unique building. In addition to world famous automobile icons like the 356, 550, 911 or 917, the technical pioneering work of Professor Ferdinand Porsche from the early 20th century is also presented. The journey through the company’s history begins with the forerunner of all Porsche cars – the type 64. Then, gradually, the Porsche history comes alive – from motorsport to the road.
The car handover.
On this day you have seen a lot, experienced a lot – and now it’s time: for a lot of fun. When your Porsche is handed over by our experts. They spend time explaining your new car to you with real feeling, right down to the smallest detail if you require – from how the door opener works to the best way of loading. And of course everything about its high level of sports performance and efficiency.
For Porsche drivers, this moment is usually quite a special event. And so we record it for you. With a personal souvenir photograph – as a memento of when you collected your car from the factory. And there is also a gift individually matched to your car.
The handover lasts about 1 to 1.5 hours and takes place in our delivery hall. We give you your car with a full tank of petrol. Because we know how difficult it is to interrupt the journey once you are driving a Porsche.
Get in, start the engine – and there are simply no words to describe what you now feel.
Have a good journey.
