Porsche Museum presents Sixty Years of the Zuffenhausen Production Plant
The name “Zuffenhausen”, a part of Stuttgart, is world-famous among car enthusiasts. Because this is where Porsche sports cars have been built ever since 1950. With the first Porsche 356 being completed in Stuttgart in spring 1950, the original production target was a modest 100 cars a year. But the success of the young company soon encouraged Ferry Porsche, the son of company founder Ferdinand and the initiator of the first Porsche sports car, to become more ambitious in implementing his vision of “Driving the Most Beautiful Way”: Just ten years after the first model was built, production of sports cars bearing that legendary Porsche logo amounted to more than 25,000 units.
This Special Exhibition documents the early years and the development of production in Zuffenhausen, the Company’s original plant. We also proudly present one of first Porsche 356 built in Zuffenhausen which, after comprehensive restoration, is now to be admired in the Museum for the first time.
The exhibition runs between 20, March and 9, May
