Porsche Museum Pictures: Le Mans GT1, 917 & RS Spyder

Sorting through my archives yesterday, I uncovered some Porsche Museum pictures from a trip to Stuttgart in December 2010. This one shows a 917, RS Spyder, Cisitalia engine, 904 chassis, 3.2 Club Sport prototype, 993 RS and 936 scale recreation, as well as a special 996 we weren’t allowed to photograph.

The Porsche Museum is closed every Monday. This is a day for building maintenance, but also the day where invited Porsche guests (and common-or-garden journos like me) get to view the collection in relative quiet.

I say relative, as our visit included a Cup Car start-up in the museum’s sound theatre, and a 917 start downstairs in the museum workshop. It was definitely a day to remember.
