Porsche concludes its worldwide Le Mans Roadshow with two exhibitions
For the Porsche Heritage and Museum department, 2021 remains all about “The Porsche Success Story at Le Mans”.
Today, the sports car manufacturer can look back on 19 overall and 108 class victories. To mark the anniversary, the Stuttgart-based company is running a worldwide roadshow until February 2022, with static and dynamic appearances by 27 original class- and overall-winning cars from its historic collection. To conclude the event, Porsche has been showcasing three cars at the newly reopened TOP Mountain Motorcycle Museum at Hochgurgl in Austria since 18 November, while a second exhibition is being staged at the ZeitHaus museum at the Autostadt in Wolfsburg, Germany, from 26 November 2021 to 27 February 2022.

“We are delighted to be able to present three Le Mans racing cars in Hochgurgl,” says Christoph Emde, Curator of External Presentations, Porsche Heritage and Museum.
Porsche Experience Centers worldwide have also been hosting Heritage Corners. Porsche is exhibiting the following cars at the Wolfsburg car museum: the 911 (Type 991) RSR, the 911 GT1 ’98 and the 924 GTR LM in which Jürgen Barth and Walter Röhrl won their class in 1981. Visitors to the Autostadt can also look forward to a timeline showing important figures from Porsche’s successful Le Mans story, as well as films from the Porsche Moments series, which is hosted by overall Le Mans winner Timo Bernhard.

The TOP Mountain Motorcycle Museum reopened its doors on 18 November and promises its visitors a spectacular collection of historic motorcycles and classic cars. In January 2021, Europe’s highest motorcycle museum was almost completely destroyed by fire. The collection of several hundred historic motorbikes was wiped out by the flames, as were the rare cars that had told their stories here. We have been looking forward to the reopening, and we’re proud that our cars will be part of the exhibition, says Emde.
