Porsche’s Private Museum Storage Warehouse

Autoblog.com’s Michael Harley was recently asked by Porsche if he would like to take a tour of their private warehouse while he was visiting Stuttgart, to which he graciously obliged. The storage facility had 336 total cars at the time of his tour, the historic vehicles kept there as most make their rotation for display at the publicly open museum down the street, or sent out to events around the world. Filling the building were old race cars, show concepts, development mules, prototypes and engineering displays. In his own words, “…there was an overpowering smell of used motor oil, rubber and fuel…”. Fantastic.
