Porsche Museum gift shop collection – Click above for high-res image gallery
If you're planning a trip to Germany, Stuttgart should be included in your itinerary. The city is home to both Mercedes-Benz and Porsche, but if factory tours aren't enough to make it worth your while, Porsche recently inaugurated a new €100 million museum displaying a collection that includes 80 of the company's most historic creations on 1,000 square meters of floor space housed in a dazzling new building. We recently had a chance to check it out in person, and we'd highly recommend any gearhead worth his or her pistons to do the same. And when you do, you'll probably want to bring some extra cash, because as you'd expect, the gift shop is packed with desirable items, the latest of which Porsche has just revealed.

The new collection at the Porsche Museum shop includes sportswear – including the 356 Workshop Shirt for men and the retro "I too prefer Porsche" tee for the ladies – as well as books and DVDs outlining the company's history along with the usual suspects from metal signs and posters to keychains and exclusive 1:18 scale models. You can check 'em all out in the gallery below and the press release after the jump, but if you want to pick something up, you'll have to go in person.

The Porsche Museum extends the range of products in its shop

Stuttgart. The Museum of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, can now offer visitors a new wardrobe too: housed within the architecture of the imposing building, the Museum shop offers black polo shirts and white t-shirts bearing the Museum log. Baseball caps in the same colors complete the collection. The women's line harks back to historic advertising: the advertising poster, "I too prefer Porsche", used as part of a campaign for the Porsche 356 B in 1960, now adorns lilac and pink t-shirts. A men's sports shirt from the era of the Porsche 356 has been added to the new range. The "356 Workshop Shirt" is printed with the Porsche typeface from the 50s, yet also has small yet practical refinements from today. The shirt pocket does not have a button, to allow something like the technical specifications "Models – Dimensions - Tolerances", an aid for mechanics in the 50s, to be stored easily about the person.

As well as sports outerwear, the Porsche Museum has also expanded its attractive range of literature with in-house publishing, "Edition Porsche-Museum". It has already produced its own DVD and two book titles. The DVD "The Porsche Way", available in German and English, presents the entire history of the sports car manufacturer in two and a half hours, from the very beginning to the present. Previously unpublished photos and documents from the company's archives give readers of the books "Die Autos" [The Cars] and "Ferdinand Porsche und der Volkswagen" [Ferdinand Porsche and the Volkswagen] a new insight into the successful vehicle developments from Porsche.

Alongside small items such as key rings, buttons, posters, postcards and metal advertising boards, the Museum also has a selection of miniature vehicle models for model fans. Complete the whole collection with the "Nummer 1", the 1948 Porsche 356 and the 911 2.0 Coupé from 1964 in 1:18 scale. For its younger visitors, the shop offers a range of games, model kits and model cars.

The shop is located in the foyer of the Porsche Museum and can be accessed free of charge. Further information is available on the internet at www.porsche.com/museum.
