Porsche Museum to Display 40 Years of Design Work in 2013

Those familiar with German sports cars are likely to know the name Ferdinand Alexander Porsche. The grandson of the iconic automaker's founder, he designed many vehicles for the company's lineup throughout is remarkable life. Many say his most notable work is the Porsche 911, which still incorporates many of his original design cues today.

Of course, Ferdinand Alexander Porsche's design work extends beyond the vehicles we know and love; he also worked on a wide range of other non-automotive projects. Some of his more interesting works include:

  • Eyeglasses
  • Lounge chairs
  • Writing utensils
  • Pipes
  • A motorcycle concept
  • And even a grand piano

With such a wide variety of projects under his belt, it's hard to imagine that any one venue could manage to fit every example of design work by Ferdinand Alexander Porsche under one roof. That, however, isn't stopping the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany from trying.

To be more precise, 40 years worth of design work from Ferdinand Alexander Porsche will be on display at the museum starting early next year. If you're planning a trip to Stuttgart next year, we highly recommend attending. And if you do, be sure to share a photo or two (if you're allowed to take them) with us by leaving a comment below.
