Take a look inside Porsche’s museum

When Porsche first opened its original museum in 1976, it was relatively small in size and it could hold around 20 cars at any given time. In 2009, the company opened a new museum in Zuffenhausen, just next to its headquarters.

The new museum is much grander in scope and bigger in scale and the new place could hold 80 exhibits at a given time. To show off the new home of Porsche’s museum collection, the German automaker has uploaded a series of videos on its YouTube channel.

The entire collection of Porsche’s museum consists of some 505 cars, and the German automaker lacked a warehouse large enough to store them all under one roof. Recently, Porsche has acquired a climate-controlled warehouse on the outskirts of Stuttgart that is large enough to house the entire collection, allowing room for expansion.

It is unlikely that Porsche would ever have all its cars in Stuttgart at any given time, as the automaker uses them in support of events worldwide. The two videos show the rich heritage of Porsche cars which has been preserved for the future generations to admire.
