Porsche celebrate 70 years with special exhibitions
Seventy years on from the launch of the 356 No. 1 Roadster, Porsche announces special events around the world, including a huge celebration in Stuttgart
Porsche will celebrate its 70th anniversary since the launch of its first model, the 356 ‘No. 1’ Roadster, with a special ‘70 years of the Porsche sports car’ exhibition.
The exhibition was announced during the marque’s New Year celebrations at the Porsche Musuem in Stuttgart, which will also act as the host venue when it opens to the public on June 9.
Featuring cars from the first production model produced by Porsche, the 356 Roadster, up to the all-electric Mission E pre-production car, the exhibition will centre around the iconic 911, which will enter its 55th year of production in 2018.
‘Although the 911 has been consistently developed in the intervening decades and enhanced many times over with new, innovative technologies, no other vehicle has managed to retain its original essence in the same way as the 911,’ said Porsche chairman Oliver Blume.
‘All Porsche models to be developed now and in the future are based on this sports car.’
Fans will have other opportunities outside of Stuttgart to be involved in the anniversary celebration, with a number of other events planned during the course of 2018. The ‘70 years of the Porsche sports car’ exhibition will make a brief appearance in Berlin as part of the ‘DRIVE, the Volkswagen Group Forum’ event on March 20-31.
There's also ‘The Porsche Effect’ exhibition at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, featuring models like the 1938 Berlin-Rome Type 64 race car, Gulf 917K and a four-door prototype 928 on loan from the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, among others.
Later in the year, Porsche will also host 70th anniversary events at Goodwood Festival of Speed on July 12-15, at California’s Rennsport Reunion on September 27-30, and then finishing off their 70th anniversary calendar with ‘Sound Night’, which takes place on October 13 at the Porsche Arena in Stuttgart for the first time.
