At last, the scaffolding has been removed to see the extent of the new Porsche museum. Final preparations are being made for the opening on Saturday, January 31, 2009. The museum sits in the famous suburb of Stuttgart, Germany that has been the home of Porsche since 1950. 18372 square feet of exhibition space are supported on cores of reinforced concrete making the building appear to look like it's hovering in free space. There will be 80 exhibits to attend inside once the project is done.

During construction of the new Porsche Museum, the vehicles have been stored in an off-premises warehouse in Zwingenberg am Neckar until required. The first exhibits that will go on display in the museum include a 356 Cabriolet, an original `11' model and the first prototype of the 924.

"In the last few weeks, we have comprehensively restored all the vehicles and polished them up for their use in the museum," explains Klaus Bischof, head of the Rolling Museum. In addition to the exhibition vehicles, the small exhibits and show cabinets have also already been put in place. This means that work can now begin on the lighting of the exhibition as the next step.

As virtually all museum vehicles are also used on the road, it is intended that they will be continuously replaced. As a result, the Porsche Museum will constantly change its appearance, and this will allow visitors in future to discover different Porsche rarities in the new museum on a regular basis.

On Tuesdays through to Sundays, the exhibition can be viewed between 9:00am and 6:00pm. General admission costs eight Euros ($10.30 USD). Children up to the age of 14 get free admission when accompanied by an adult. The Museum is closed Mondays. The new museum and its range of catering facilities offer additional capacity for conferences, company and private events in exceptional surroundings.
