While Ferrari fans have had a splashy museum in Maranello, Italy, to make pilgrimages to for years, Porsche fans have had to be satisfied with a small 20-car rotating exhibit near the company factory. Not anymore. The new Porsche Museum at Porsche's headquarters in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen, Germany, is set to open Saturday.
On Wednesday, the press and VIPs got a sneak peek at the interior, which contains 5,600 square meters of exhibition space, as well as a restaurant, a rooftop terrace, a Porsche Archive library, conference facilities, a Porsche workshop where mechanics tinker with cars, and a museum shop that will at times offer collectors items.
