The Savoy Automobile Museum celebrates 75 years of Porsche by presenting fifteen models that have marked the history of the Stuttgart manufacturer. Indeed, it was in 1948 that Porsche launched its first model. Very quickly, the Porsche will be a great success with sports drivers, including in the United States and attracts many stars who love cars. Several collectors lent their cars to the Savoy Museum for this exhibition, to celebrate these 75 years of history through some important and emblematic models produced by Porsche.

The story begins with several Porsche 356 and derivatives, including a 550 Spyder from 1955, a Speedster from 1957 and a 356C Carrera 2 from 1965, the latest generation equipped with a 4-cylinder 2L. The long 911 saga is represented by some rare and iconic models, starting the Porsche 901 prototype of 1963, which will become the 911 on the market, Peugeot having already reserved the 3-digit designations with a 0 in the middle.
We find among others the Carrera RS first of the name (1973), the 930 Turbo in convertible version (1988) or the very sporty GT3 RS, generation 997 (2007). 2 other exceptional models are on display, the supercars 959 (1987) developed for Group B homologation, and the Carrera GT with its V10 which made it one of the first road cars to exceed 300 km/h.
Finally, let’s not forget the Porsche 928, a superb GT with front V8 engine (1986). The choice is eclectic, and of very high level.
