FrontRunners: Exhibitions of Speed

  • The Editors

In racing and in sales, German sports-car manufacturers are fierce competitors. So it is not surprising—after Mercedes-Benz opened a new museum in 2006 and BMW debuted one in 2008—that Porsche is opening a new Porsche Museum (www.porsche.com). The sharp-angled, aerodynamically shaped structure, which is located next to the Porsche factory in Stuttgart, Germany, was, at press time, scheduled for completion in December. The museum will accommodate more than 80 historical vehicles, some of them, including the 909 Bergspyder, on display for the first time. The facility will also contain a Classic Workshop that services historical Porsches and allows visitors to view restoration experts at work.
