Porsche has culminated a 100 million euro ground-up renovation on its museum in Stuttgart, which will be officially dedicated later this week. The museum spans over 1,000 square meters of floor space, wrapped in stunning architecture and housing a collection of over 80 significant Porsches from the marque's history, from the first 356 to the latest Panamera. Included among the expositions is a section dedicated to the evolution of the 911 Turbo, an array of competition cars – including Porsche's victorious rally, Dakar and Le Mans challengers and Niki Lauda's Porsche-powered McLaren – concept cars from across the decades, some of Ferdinand Porsche's original tractors and more.
The museum will be officially dedicated later this week before it opens its doors to the public on January 31, after which the museum will be open from Tuesday to Sunday every week from 9 am until 6 pm. We'll be posting our own tour of the review soon, but in the meantime, check out the museum's website and the images in the gallery below.
