Fascination Sports Cars
Porsche opened a special exhibit in Berlin: “Fascination Sports Cars – The Future of Performance.”
“This is the first time we are giving automobile enthusiasts such an insight into our brand in the German capital,” emphasised Achim Stejskal, Head of the Porsche Museum. “At the same time, visitors can also experience our vision – ‘The Future of Performance’ – interactively.”
First, the visitor is welcomed by a model of a 550 Spyder in the exhibit area. The sports car manufacturer is showing its beginnings in motorsport and the development of typical Porsche DNA with this model. The open-air mid-engine sports car made a name for itself in the 1950s, in particular with its motorsport successes.
On display across from this car is the 918 Spyder which shows the DNA for the sports car of the future. The 918 Spyder was the first vehicle internationally approved for street use to break the seven minute barrier for a lap of the North Loop of the Nürburgring with a time of 6 minutes 57 seconds. It can be driven in the city with zero emissions and nearly silently.
Porsche is showcasing its forward-looking perspective with a selection of current models that are also part of the brand exhibit. For instance, the sports car manufacturer is presenting its new mid-engine roadster in Berlin 20 years after the first Boxster made its debut.
