50 Years of Porsche 917 - Colours of Speed

Special Exhibition
50 years ago, in 1969, one of Zuffenhausen’s most powerful
number sequences was presented to the public at the Geneva
Motor Show: the Porsche 917. As part of one of its most extensive
special exhibitions, entitled „50 Years of Porsche 917 –
Colours of Speed“, the Porsche Museum will showcase the
entire era of one of the most famous racing cars of all time,
between May 14 and September 15. Comprising ten 917
models and a wealth of smaller exhibits, the exhibition will
cover the racing car of the century, as well as topics including
brand sponsorship and the technological progress made
during that time, using an interactive, multimedia approach.
Visitors can also look forward to viewing an outstanding
exhibit that marks a decisive milestone in Porsche racing
history: the first Porsche 917 ever built, bearing chassis
number 001, which the museum’s workshop team has spent
years restoring to its original condition as when it celebrated
its world premiere in 1969.
