Here's How Porsche Is Celebrating 70 Years Of Sports Cars In Berlin


If you’re a fan of classic Porsches, you may want to make a trip to Berlin.

This year marks the 70th anniversary of Porsche’s first ever sports car, the iconic 356. Its landmark anniversary will be commemorated at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, which will see a host of historic Porsche’s tackle the famous hillclimb. Of course, this won’t be the only celebration venue for such a significant birthday. Porsche has announced it will be opening a special "70 Years of Porsche Sports Cars" exhibition in its homeland of Germany.

The exhibition will be open from March 20 at the “Drive. Volkswagen Group Forum” Berlin, as this is where Porsche first received its permit to build the original 356. Best of all, admission is free of charge, so if you’re a fan of classic Porsches, you may want to make the trip. Chronicling Porsche’s extensive history, the exhibition is split across ten sections, including "Origin of the sports car," "Motorsport," and "Sports cars of the future.” Guests will be greeted by a Porsche 356 “No.1” Roadster show car representing the “Origin of the sports car” when they first enter, while Porsche’s first EV, the upcoming Mission E, will represent the brand’s future.
