German Cars: Porsche

With 125 years of automotive history, Germany can look back to a long tradition of car manufacturing. Porsche is one of the car makers that developed into an international, renowned brand, best known for sports cars. Dating back to 1875 when it was founded by Ferdinand Porsche, nowadays the company stands for high quality, safety, and innovation, offering a series of car models including the popular Boxter, Carrera, and Cayenne.

The extraordinary architecture of the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen is as impressive as the cars inside: The monolithic building looks as if it is about to take off. The exhibition follows the idea of a museum on wheels with many of the 80 vehicles on display also used outside the museum, and some even compete in races.

Special Event 2011:
In addition to several special exhibitions, the "Museum on Wheels" participates with its vehicles in a number of classic car races throughout Germany:

May 2011 - 125th Anniversary of the Automobile in Stuttgart
July 2011 - Heidelberg Historic
August 2011 - Sachsen Classic
