Stuttgart. The construction of the new museum at Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, continues to make good progress. Interior work on the second floor is largely finished, meaning that the first twelve exhibition vehicles can be installed today. By the end of this week, the relocation of all 80 exhibits to the new museum will have been completed.
The vehicles have been stored in an off-premises warehouse in Zwingenberg am Neckar until they are transported to the museum. The first exhibits that go on display in the museum today include, among others, a 356 Cabriolet, an original '11' model and the first prototype of the 924. "In the last few weeks, we have comprehensively restored all the vehicles and polished them up for their use in the museum," explains Klaus Bischof, head of the 'Rolling Museum'. In addition to the exhibition vehicles, the small exhibits and show cabinets have also already been set up. This means that work can be started on the lighting of the exhibition as the next step.
As virtually all museum vehicles are also used on the road and are thus continuously being replaced by other vehicles, the exhibition will constantly change its appearance. As a result, visitors will in future be able to discover different Porsche rarities in the new museum on a regular basis.
