Porsche celebrates its 75th anniversary in Monaco!

Publication date: 21/02/2023
The famous German company is taking over the Cars Collection of H.S.H. the Prince of Monaco for one month, with an exhibition of 13 of the most iconic models from its 75 years of history.

The Cars Collection of H.S.H. the Prince of Monaco now has a new sister association called "Cercle des Amis", chaired by the former Formula 1 driver and long-term resident of the Principality, Thierry Boutsen. Its purpose is to raise the Collection's profile through partnerships, special exhibitions, events, etc., both national and international in scale. As part of its strategy, the association has decided to hold a temporary exhibition devoted to Porsche, which opened yesterday. 

The exhibition tells the story of the German firm and its precious heritage handed down from generation to generation. 

Of the 13 models on display, six have been loaned by the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, and four by collectors. One is a Formula-E model loaned by the famous luxury brand Tag Heuer (which will remain in place until the E-Prix) and two models were already part of the Cars Collection. The exhibition includes classic models such as a  Porsche 911, a Porsche 908 "longtail", and the Porsche 917 and 962C which won the Le Man 24 Hours (the prototype of the 962C held the track record from 1985 to 2017!).

Adding an extra shine to the curves of these majestic machines, Tag Heuer, official partner of the Cars Collection, has selected collections of stunning watches that tell the story of the long relationship between the luxury watchmaker and Porsche. Visitors can admire two exclusive displays: one focused on motor sport, time, and stopwatches, and the other recounting the links between Monaco and the brand. Two prestige brands brought together in an exceptional setting, both with global reputations built on shared values: innovation, the quest for accuracy and perfection.

The Cars Collection of H.S.H. the Prince of Monaco is among the Principality's leading exhibition spaces with a new programme, giving visitors the opportunity to discover a wide variety of subjects. To mark the Rugby World Cup which begins in September, the museum will also be hosting paintings by former French international Jean-Pierre Rives.

Power and passion will come together until 20 March at the Cars Collection of H.S.H. the Prince of Monaco!
