PORSCHE FACTORY TOUR
Friday, March 2nd at 9:45
Meeting place: Porsche Museum, Porscheplatz 1, 70435 Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen
Nearest station: Neuwirtshaus (S) or Salzwiesenstrasse (U)
Host: Michelle Moore
In an age when most of its competitors have been absorbed into larger manufacturers, Porsche remains a staunchly — and profitably — independent maker of high-performance sports cars. The Porsche name has become synonymous with sports cars and race cars because that is what company founders Ferdinand Porsche and his son Ferdinand (“Ferry”) set out to build when they first set up shop with 200 workers in 1948.
We’ve booked a March tour of the famous Porsche factory in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen for IWCS members and a +1 guest. This is not the usual museum tour but a private behind-the-scenes look at the factory itself, just for us!
Our English-language tour for 15 participants will take approximately two hours and require us to walk roughly three kilometers, including stairs. For safety reasons, they may not be able to show us all production areas, but they will try. Because this is an active factory, there are safety requirements that we will need to follow. You must wear closed-toe shoes for this tour. Additionally, we will not be allowed to bring our mobile phones/cameras into the factory – they will be kept for us at the cash desk during the tour, or lockers are available. Please see the complete list of safety rules at the end of this post.
The member cost for this event is €6 per person, to be paid in advance no later than February 23rd. You will receive our bank details for the transfer when you RSVP for the event.
This is a +1 event, which means:
- Any IWCS member plus one guest are welcome to attend.
- Your +1 can be a partner, spouse, child over the age of 12, or friend.
- You and your guest each pay the member cost listed above.
To start the reservation process, please RSVP in the pending Facebook event or use the form below to contact the host, Michelle Moore, if you are not on Facebook.
All prepayments should be in our bank account no later than the 23rd of February. If you have any extenuating circumstances that keep you from getting the funds to us by that date, please speak directly with the host so we don’t assume you are no longer interested.
Prepayments are non-refundable after the payment deadline. Members who have to cancel at the last minute are welcome to find another member or guest to send in their place.
