Porsche celebrate 70 years with stunning exhibition

07th June 2018

Porsche’s 70th-year celebrations kick off in Stuttgart today (June 8th) with the official opening of an anniversary exhibition at the Porsche Museum. The opening is just weeks ahead of Goodwood’s own Porsche tribute at the Goodwood Festival of Speed Presented by Mastercard on July 12th–15th.

The museum, which has been completely reorganised for the new exhibition, bookends seven decades of Porsche production with the first 356 Roadster and the 2019 electric Mission E.

It was on 8 June in 1948 that 356 “No 1” received its operating permit, paving the way for a family of sports and racing cars – and today, saloons and SUVs – that over the following decades would prove so successful on both road and track.

The exhibition starts with the 356 – the actual first sports car ever to wear a Porsche badge – and goes through 75 more model high points, each representing a milestone in Porsche’s history. It culminates with a taste of the future in the form of the Mission E, the first purely electrically-powered Porsche due in showrooms in 2019.

As well as the exhibition in its home town Porsche is banging its 70th drum in events around the world, including the Goodwood Festival of Speed Presented by Mastercard on 12-15 July. It will be the third time Porsche has been featured marque at FoS. It celebrated its 50th anniversary here in 1998 and also the 50th anniversary of the 911 in 2013.
