Construction of the new Porsche museum at Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, continues to make good progress. Interior work on the second floor is largely finished, allowing the first twelve exhibition vehicles to be wheeled in last week. By now, the relocation of all 80 exhibits to the new museum should be completed.

The vehicles have been stored in an off-premises warehouse in Zwingenberg am Neckar until they were transported to the museum. The first exhibits that went on display in the museum last week include a 356 Cabriolet, an original 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, small exhibits and show cabinets have also been set up. This means that work can be started on giving the cars some much needed lightning.

As virtually all museum vehicles are also used on the road and continuously being replaced by other vehicles, the exhibition will constantly change its appearance. As a result, visitors will be able to discover different Porsche rarities in the new museum on a regular basis.
