Inside Porsche’s Secret Prototype Warehouse
porsche | August 25, 2014
UK automotive magazine CAR recently took a journey to the incredible Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany. But after taking the tour of the public collection, they managed to score time visiting a much more interesting place – a behind-the-scenes storage area a few blocks away from the museum where Porsche keeps many of its more unusual and obscure vehicles.
The nondescript warehouse is home to over 300 vehicles, including secret prototypes, test mules and some vehicles that were never meant to see the light of day. Among the cars are a surprisingly usable 4-seat variant of the 911, an early sedan prototype that might have been the precursor to the Panamera, and tons of track-used race cars. There are also a number of strange mutant vehicles, like an Audi outfitted with Porsche components, and those cutaway cars you see at trade shows.
Sadly, the Porsche prototype warehouse isn’t open to the public, but this video will give you a small taste of the amazing collection that lies inside.
