Forty 911s from the past 50 years of production on display at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart to celebrate the model's semi-centennial.
Porsche has a long string of festivities planned for the 50th anniversary of the 911. Just the other day, the German automaker announced the special 911 50 Years edition, and now the Porsche Museum at headquarters in Stuttgart has opened a special exhibition to mark the occasion. One of the most extensive exhibitions since the museum's opening, the “50 Years of 911” display includes more than 40 different 911s from over the course of the model's half-century of production from the original to the latest 991.
Along with standard production 911s from each generation of the model's evolution, the Porsche Museum is displaying a number of rare specials and never-before-seen prototypes. Those include one of just 19 examples of the 1967 911 R, the original 911 Carrera RSR, a Le Mans-spec 934, an armored 996, Julio Iglesias' own Carrera, the 964-generation 911 Carrera Cup and the GT3 RS 4.0 that ushered out the last model. The exhibit was opened by chairman Dr. Wolfgang Porsche and president Matthias Muller, and will be open until September 29. If you happen to own a 911 or were born in 1963 (the year of the car's birth), you get in for free.
