70 Years Porsche Sportscars
Porsche will be celebrating a special anniversary in 2018: In 1948, Ferry Porsche built the 356 “No.1” Roadster – it was the first sports car to bear the Porsche name and turned his idea of a sports car into a reality. All of the values that define the brand to this day are reflected in his vision from that time. The Porsche Museum will pay tribute to “70 Years Porsche Sportscars” with a special exhibition set to open on June 9, 2018.
Sports car construction over the past seven decades is inextricably linked to the Porsche brand. From June 9, 2018, to January 6, 2019, the Porsche Museum will present its special exhibition entitled “70 years of Porsche sports cars”, detailing the stories and milestones through which Porsche has decisively shaped and driven the development of sports cars from 1948 to this day. Why is there such a fascination for Porsche sports cars? Ten themed sections provide exciting insights into the history of the brand and give a multifaceted overview of the “Porsche principle”. At the forefront are Porsche's outstanding achievements in sports car development over the past 70 years – from the legendary Porsche 356 “No.1” Roadster in 1948 to the new Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo. The exhibition also places particular emphasis on the people behind the brand. Without the legendary pioneering spirit of Porsche's employees and the enthusiasm of the Porsche community across the world, such a success story would be unthinkable for the sports car manufacturer.
