Porsche Museum

Posted by Scott

The Porsche Museum in Zuffenhausen, Germany is nothing short of mind blowing. The ultra-clean, super-minimal building houses over 80 exhibits chronicling the auto-maker’s rise to prominence. The whole thing leans pretty futuristic, would have liked to have seen a few classic cues here and there, but I’m certainly not complaining. Has anyone been yet? Looks like a must-see if you’re anywhere near Stuttgart.

Reminds me of the proverbial white horse in a snowstorm. My cones and rods are fried due to the lack of contrast. Ever seen “Belly” by Hype Williams? The whole movie looks like this.

It´s not as cool as the photos make it look. Not as clean either.

But all in all is a must see.

Still it pales a bit in comparison with the Mercedes museum.
For me the main fault is the lobby which is way too small for crowds.

You can see some pics from the Porsche Museum here (taken last year).
But I must agree with GUI here: the Daimler museum is much nicer.

That’s absolutely wild! Um, yeah, definitely adding that to the “place’s” list on things I need to do.

As an architect (to be), I love seeing the occasional architecture post on here. This museum is stunning and I actually haven’t heard anything about it before, so thanks for posting. Did your source tell you who the architect of record is? We don’t mind having our work credited every now and then too ;-)

Looks like it would have some decent exhibits. The BMW museum in Munich is just as beautiful (looks like a hurricane of glass) but there aren’t really any exhibits in it. They just showcase a bunch of their new cars. But the building is worth visiting in itself.

The exterior shape of the building looks like a machine. It is suitable to be a car museum. The interior design is amazing and much more better than tha Exterior.
