Built in Zuffenhausen – Construction & Architecture of the Porsche Museum

S13_0075

Ever since it first opened in 2009, the Porsche Museum has fascinated visitors with its combination of unique vehicles and stunning architecture. From now until 26 May 2013, a special exhibition staged by the sports automobile manufacturer will show the making of what is probably the most spectacular architectural project in the history of the company. For the first time, diverse exhibits and technical drawings will explain how the museum came into being and present the structural challenges involved in its creation.

“Built in Zuffenhausen” will be centred around the design by Delugan Meissl Associated Architects of Vienna, winner of the architects’ competition in 2005. Visitors to the special exhibition will also learn more about the construction techniques employed for the museum from a selection of material samples. Plans and models submitted by the architectural practices which participated in the competition can likewise be admired – some of them never before seen in public.

The simple facts and figures about the museum building are equally impressive. More tons of steel were used to build the Porsche Museum, for instance, than the Eiffel Tower in Paris. The monolithic body, weighing 35.000 tons, rises 45 metres above Porsche Square and is supported on a highly complex steel skeleton. Resting on just three V-shaped columns, the museum’s dominant main structure appears to hover in mid-air. Its central location on Porsche Square reflects the close ties with the sports automobile manufacturer and its Zuffenhausen headquarters. Today, the Porsche Museum is a centre of knowledge about the history of the sports car brand and Porsche Square would be unthinkable without it.

“Built in Zuffenhausen” is being used as an opportunity to supplement the one-hour architectural tour with a visit to the special exhibition. At 3 p.m. on Wednesdays and Sundays, visitors can take advantage of an extended themed tour covering both the museum itself and the special exhibition at a price of four euros per person (on top of the normal cost).

The Porsche Museum is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays to Sundays. The admission price is 8 euros for adults or 4 euros for children and concessions. Children up to the age of 14 are entitled to free admission when accompanied by an adult. More information can be found on the Internet at www.porsche.com/museum.

Porsche 911 GT2 – Jay Leno’s Garage

Porsche 911 GT2

To call the Porsche 911 GT2 a Porsche Turbo on steroids, really doesn’t do this car justice. We’re not taking anything away from the Turbo here, but where that’s a more high performance street car, the GT2 is more of a true drivers car. Powered by a twin-turbo flat-six that makes 530 hp, the GT2 is rear-wheel drive only and comes with a proper 6-speed manual transmission. Not as hard edged as the GT2 RS or GT3 RS, the GT2 fits into that perfect slot by blending all day livability and power, with flat-out track performance. Such an amazing machine.
