Porsche Museum

Hello,

today i had the opportunity to spend some hours in a very special part of the Porsche museum in Stuttgart. The Porsche archive. Maybe the pictures are not spectacular, but there is tons of information.

Regards, Markus

Markus,

That's cool. Were you on a research mission or just exploring? Thanks for sharing.

Best,
Aaron

Hello Aaron,

i was on a mission. But it will take some time to get all infos sorted. And i was only scratching the surface.

Regards, Markus

My family spent the better part of a day at the museum, and I have to say, it was magnificent.

Okay, if the prototype is in the museum and the mission involves spiriting the car away, count me in.

Hello Aaron,

at the moment the Boxster prototype study is not in the exhibition, because of the Transaxle exhibition.

Still lots of interesting stuff. And i've had the opportunity to see some Boxster 986 prototype soft top version sketches; not allowed to post.

So i've attached the prototype with some guys of the development team at the Weissach test race track.

Regards, Markus
