Since 1950, sport cars are produced at Porscheplatz in Stuttgart. So of course this is where the Porsche Museum opened its doors in 2009. The futuristic building was constructed using 6000 tons of steel, more than can be found in the Eiffel tower. The museum's generous exhibition space is home to 800 cars and 200 smaller exhibits.
One of the highlights is a rebuilt car of the type 64, the primal Porsche. Even today you can find its clear design in every Porsche model. Other great exhibits include a Porsche 356 "No. 1", a Porsche 367 Coupé "Ferdinand" from 1950 and a Porsche 356 1500 Speedster.
A tour through the museum leads from product history to various other topics like motor sports activities. All cars that are on display are still drivable, and take part in the Goodwood Festival of Speed, for example. In order to provide maintenance a museum repair shop was built. Visitiors can watch the work getting done on the sports cars through a glass wall. The museum also offers an historical archive providing pictures, video and text material.
