Porsche Motorsports Center in Weissach.
After a construction time of just one year, the new motorsport centre of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG was completed in July 2006. 10,550 square metres (more than 113,500 square feet) located at Weissach are the crucial prerequisite in ensuring the continued competitiveness of Porsche vehicles in racing.
The heart of Porsche Motorsport is made up of four buildings, which are connected via a light and transparent arched-roof construction. The facilities include workshops, race vehicle production, logistics centre and a terminal for trucks. There and in the affiliated office block 210 employees will be working.
The workshop facilities house separate areas for the servicing of Cup and customer race cars, for the RS Spyder prototype, the 911 GT3 RSR as well as for development projects. In the so-called “manufacture”, specialists construct limited numbers of racing sports cars and prototypes. Around 20,000 different parts are stored in the logistics site, which for example also delivers for series cars like the 911 GT3 and the 911 GT3 RS. At the terminal up to seven articulated lorries can dock at the same time and be loaded for the delivery to the race tracks.
Already the access road will fascinate motorsport enthusiasts: In the corners are typically cambered kerbs like those found on race circuits, as well as stacks of tyres and brand advertising which lend a real motorsport atmosphere.
