If you're a Porsche enthusiast in the Plano area, you're probably aware that there is a magnificent museum, both in design and displays, that is located in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen, Germany; and houses more than eighty exclusive Porsche models. Perhaps you've even seen the exhibits for yourself, as the museum attracts visitors from across the globe with its rare collection.
But even if you were aware of the museum's existence, what you might not know is that there is another museum, or rather overflow holding facility for the first, with an undisclosed location that has long time remained a secret. Up until now.
Achim Steiskal, Head of Porsche Museum, describes it as, "a kind of hub like a big airport where the cars come in, the cars go out."1 Steiskal also explains that the models are stored in a climate-controlled space and are constantly restored for optimum preservation.
Recently Porsche has released a set of videos
entitled Museum Secrets Part
One and Museum Secrets Part Two that invite
viewers into these climate-controlled walls to see all the museum has to offer.
While the first video is certainly worth a watch, and features the first-ever produced Porsche 911, we at Porsche of Plano find the second video to be the most intriguing as it truly delves into what exactly is in the secret location.
We weren't surprised to find out there were several rare Porsche models within the mystery walls, but we were surprised when we heard what some of them were. For example, the museum is home to a Porsche 996 Bulletproof, a Porsche 908 Targa Florio Racecar, a Porsche 906 "Ollon-Villars" Hill Climb Racer, a Porsche 924 World Record Car, a Porsche Convertible, a 984 "Porsche Jr," and many others as well.
