Stuttgart. An exclusive peek behind what have been up to now closed doors is offered by the Porsche Museum at the “Project: Top Secret!” special exhibition, running from September 17, 2014, through January 11, 2015: for the very first time, 16 unique vehicles will be on exhibition, which for the most part have never before been shown. The range of automobiles being presented includes secret concept cars, camouflaged prototypes as well as one-of-a-kind record, test and experimental vehicles.
Developing, researching and meticulous work are in the very nature of Porsche. It is not for nothing that the official name of the company is: “Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG.” Over 4,500 engineers are working at the Porsche Development Centre in Weissach ensuring that Porsche stays always one step ahead. The way to new innovations does not always run in a straight line. Many great ideas never make it to series production for technical or economic reasons. Nonetheless, they are frequently realised as research projects or concept cars. A great deal, of course, goes on in secrecy – because one thing is sure: a great idea is always quickly imitated by others. That is why many of the concept cars and experimental vehicles never leave the premises of the Weissach Development Centre. After the completion of the project, they are usually scrapped. The most important or exciting projects, though, were put into the stock of the Porsche Museum. Coming directly from there, they are now being shown for the first time to the wider public as part of this special exhibition.Read More
