The Germans have an extraordinary history with the automobile and of course, they know it and love to indulge while us Americans get to look on in jealousy. As a result, if you were ever to visit the homeland, you certainly won’t be shorted with automobile museums. BMW has their own in Munich, while Porsche has one in Stuttgart, along with Mercedes-Benz.
But don’t worry, they haven’t forgotten about Volkswagen, which has their own museum in Wolfsburg, Germany. Called the Autostadt, Volkswagen’s museum showcases all of the group’s brands, including Porsche. That said, some new news is out as Porsche has just received their own pavilion at the Autostadt.
“With its extraordinary design, this building is one of a kind. This new building also possesses a symbolic and historic dimension, evoking as it does the common ties that have closely bound Porsche and Volkswagen from the outset and will continue to do so in future,” said Matthias Müller, President and CEO of Porsche AG.
The pavilion itself has 25 vehicles on showcase, ranging from the original 1948 Porsche 356, to fairly recent 911s. However, most of the models take the form of actual 1:3 scaled models, all highlighting the earliest model lines of Porsche’s current sports cars. It certainly looks like a fun place to be and is sure to be on the top of your list of places to visit in Germany.
