• Porsche welcomes 500,000th visitor to the Porsche Museum; gives them a whole weekend with a Panamera

The Porsche Museum in Stuttgart has only been open for about 11 months but in that span, the museum has already attracted thousands upon thousands of visitors from all over the world.

We don’t know how they kept count, but Porsche recently announced that they’ve just welcomed its 500,000th visitor to the Museum of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG – or Porsche Museum, so as not to confuse anyone.

It’s a remarkable achievement for Porsche, which only opened its new state-of-the-art museum 11 months ago on January 31 of this year. The Rosenberger family was bequeathed with the distinction of becoming visitor no. 500,000 and Porsche will award them so kindly with a free high-power test drive of the brand’s new flagship luxury sports car, the Panamera, for an entire weekend.

We figured that Porsche should just give them the car, but we don’t make that decision. Nonetheless, taking it home for an entire weekend for all your friends and neighbors to see is a pretty sweet deal in itself.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

Wow, they are definitely lucky that they are able to bring it home. I wish they knew how to drive.

i think its much better if the museum says what’s their main attraction instead of stating the number of visitor that they have. Though i have to admit that figure is quite amazing. Now, let me see what you’ve got there.

Combine this with the Mercedes Museum also in Stuttgart and it makes the trip worth it. The old Porsche was terrible and I have been looking forward to this new museum for quite a while. You can fly now from Atlanta directly to Stuttgart for around $500 and see both museums.

Half a million visitors for 11 months. Not bad. What’s better is a week with a Porsche. I wonder if it includes free gas or something.

Holly molly! A Panamera experience for a week? I guess that they will give the car to that family. On some point of view(which I think it may happen), they gave an amount of time just to enjoy the car so there’s no way that they’ll give the car but I will be positive on this issue.
