History

Werk 1 – how it all started
In 1938, the Porsche Design Office moved from Kronenstraße 24, in the centre of Stuttgart, to the newly constructed building in Zuffenhausen. Today, this is known as Werk 1. This is where automobile history was written. First with the pilot series of the future Volkswagen ‘Beetle’. And in 1939 with the forefather of all Porsche sports cars: the Type 64.
Back to Zuffenhausen. The preparations for production get underway.
As an American truck maintenance unit was housed in Werk 1, a hall was rented at neighbouring Stuttgart car body works Karosseriewerk Reutter & Co. GmbH, where the initial preparations for production got underway.
Porsche Type 356.
On 6 April 1950, the first Type 356 car was completed in Zuffenhausen. The first Type 369 was completed in this year. The expansion of the Zuffenhausen production sites also progressed rapidly: In 1952, the Porsche Werk 2 building complex, designed by renowned architect Rolf Gutbrod, was constructed. And so in 1956, the ten-thousandth Porsche 356 left production halls that were being continuously expanded and extended.
Back to Werk 1.
In 1956, we were able to move back into Werk 1. The Racing Department and Development Centre were located here until 1971 (when the Development Centre in Weissach was opened). In addition to this – alongside many other improvements – the sports car icon, the 911, was developed in Werk 1, superseding the 356 in 1964.
Werk 1 experience.
The conversion of Werk 1 in 2017 created a place that reflects the values for which Porsche typically stands: endurance, a sense of tradition and the spirit of innovation. Its exceptional architecture leads you on a thrilling journey through Porsche history. And the current expansion of the factory will allow you to experience a glimpse into the future of automobile construction.
