Free admission

All 911 drivers plus one accompanying person, upon presentation of the vehicle registration at the box office of the Porsche Museum, have free admission from June 4 to September 29, 2013. The Porsche Museum also foregoes any admission price for visitors who were born in 1963 and can prove it by presenting their ID.

In this video you get to see the first 911 ever designed, by F.Aa Porsche, Ferry Porsche’s son, the grandson of Ferdinand Porsche. Even though it never went into production the Type 754 is still considered a Porsche 911.

Landenberger talks about the first 911. You will hear Landenberger refer to the first 911 as a 901. He goes on to explain why they did not use 901 as the model of the car.
