The online tour, which lasts around 12 minutes, is available on YouTube. The museum's website and the Porsche Museum's social media channels (Instagram channel and Facebook link to the video.

A trained museum guide provides insights not only into the beginnings and development of the site, but also into the sophisticated departments of the Weissach Development Centre. Facts and stories are used to present the various sections of the special exhibition: these include "First Steps”, which covers the origins of the Development Centre and the ground-breaking ceremony in 1961. At the "Test Bench" station, visitors are given an insight into everything that employees do at test benches. The "Design", "Porsche Engineering" and "Motorsport" sections offer equally fascinating stories as well as covering the topics of vehicles and innovations. The run-in and test track, where Porsche puts its sports cars through their paces, is also explained in great detail. Historical film excerpts from the company archive are used to supplement the stories told by the museum guide.


The Porsche think tank celebrates its anniversary this year: the Weissach Development Centre, was opened 50 years ago. The success story of the Weissach Development Centre began on 1 October 1971 when the Development and Design departments were relocated from Zuffenhausen to Weissach, 25 kilometres away. Since then, the Weissach Development Centre has stood for innovative vehicles and intelligent development services.
