Porsche-Le-Mans-Exhibit-6

Porsche has a long history in the world of racing, and the German brand is celebrating its heritage with a special museum exhibit. 

The Porsche museum in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen will play host to the exhibit, known as ’24 Hours for Eternity,’ which focuses on Porsche participating in one of the most famous races around the globe, the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The innards of the museum have been transformed to appear like a race track, and 20 different Porsche race cars that ran at Le Mans throughout the years will be on display. Cars include the 969 Porsche 908/2 Spyder long tail, the 1971 Porsche 911 T/R, the 1974 Porsche 911 3.0 RSR as well as the 1981 Porsche 936/81. In addition to the classics, the Porsche 919 that is being campaigned at the upcoming race at Le Mans will also be in attendance.

The display will be in the museum from March 26 to July 13, 2014. On the actual weekend of this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans, the museum will stay open for a full 24 hours and allow free admission, along with streaming the race live on screens fitted throughout.
