The official Porsche Museum is the home to many of the brand’s most iconic road and race cars. In this Feature Flick, Motor Trend’s Jonny Lieberman heads to the museum just outside Stuttgart, Germany, to see some of the automaker’s most important cars from the past.
Lieberman first talks about the Cisitalia 360, which is not a Porsche, though it was designed and built by Ferdinand Porsche to secure his freedom from a French prison. The Cisitalia 360 featured a mid-mounted, supercharged 12-cylinder engine and selectable all-wheel-drive, technology that wasn’t perfected over 10 years later.
Next, Lieberman examines the very first car to wear a Porsche badge before moving on to some of the early 1960s racecars on display, including the 718 RS 60 Spyder, the 904 GTS, and the legendary Porsche 917 racecars as well as cars like a long-wheelbase 911 concept, the Carrera GT, and the still-quick 959.
