Symphony of roaring engines at the Porsche Museum
When the former head of the Porsche Archives, Dieter Landenberger, published the book ‘Porsche Sounds’, he had the luminous idea to promote the book with an event at the Porsche Museum. Bring the cars in the Porsche Museum to live, rev them up and have some prominent engineers or racers on stage to spice the evening up with some interesting stories. That’s the storyline of the Porsche Sound Nacht, this year in it’s 7th edition yet. The concept has not changed since the 1st edition. And the response of the public has only grown with the event being sold out in just a few minutes the last few years.
Walter Zipser did a terrific job interviewing the different guests and introducing the true stars of the Porsche Sound Nacht, the cars themselves. Achim Stejskal, head of the Porsche Museum, even declared Walter Zipser the Mr. Sound Nacht, for moderating the event since the 2nd edition.

The cars on stage were the 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S Exlusive, introduced to the public in June 2017.
