25 Years of the Boxster at the Porsche Museum
To mark the 44th International Museum Day, the Porsche Museum is issuing an invitation to make a digital visit to the museum as from 16 May 2021.
Museums look after treasures and contribute greatly to cultural and social life. The Porsche Museum does not just present historical communication looking backwards, but transports the values of the brand authentically and vividly into the present and future. In line with this year’s motto “Museums inspire the future”, all those who are interested can take a virtual guided tour through the special exhibition “25 Years of the Boxster” in German and English as from this Sunday.
In this way, the history of the mid-engine sports car and its importance for the brand will be transported into living rooms all over the world.
“Changed times demand a new way of thinking. We have already been using digital technology and showing the origins and experience of Porsche in automotive engineering through modern channels for a long time,” says Achim Stejskal, Director Heritage and Porsche Museum. He and his team have committed themselves to the “Mission Future Heritage” in the coming years. Here, they will also present the origins and future of the brand outside the museum.
Digital versatility is important to proactively transport the historical work performed at Porscheplatz in Zuffenhausen out into the world. The online guided tour can be accessed on the museum website at digitaltour.porsche-museum.de as from International Museum Day. All Boxster models, ancestors and family members that can be seen in the special exhibition to mark the 25th anniversary of the roadster will be presented in two- to three-minute videos. Viewers can navigate through the guided tour themselves and can select which car they would like to see next from a choice of two vehicles in each case.
The digital guided tour brings the history from a quarter of a century of the Porsche Boxster closer to all those interested. There is also plenty of information about cars featuring mid-engine technology, which was used back in 1948 in the Porsche 356 “No. 1” Roadster – the first car to be built under the Porsche name.
