The Porsche Museum in Stuttgart

There’s no doubt about it, even now: the new edifice by Vienna’s Delugan Meissl is an eye-catcher. Although the building isn’t quite finished yet, the fascinating impact of the monolithic, virtually floating exhibition hall can already be felt. This bold and dynamic architecture reflects the company’s philosophy and provides a foretaste of the experience that awaits visitors to the future museum. It is designed to convey a sense of arrival and approachability, and to guide the visitors smoothly from the basement level into the superstructure.
In their design, the architects at Delugan Meissl set out to create a place of sensuous experience that reflects the authenticity of Porsche products and services as well as the company’s character, while also reshaping Porscheplatz with an unmistakable appearance.

With a surface area of around 5,000 square meters, the museum will alternately display 80 valuable historical vehicles and other exhibits from the history of the company. The exhibition will mainly concentrate on the period from 1948, when Porsche built its first own-brand sports car. A chronological overview will show the company’s product history. Special subject areas will provide extensive information, for example on Porsche’s motor sports activities, particular vehicles or the numerous development projects. An historical sports cars workshop and the archive will provide further interesting insights.
