Remit of the archive

Two kilometres of documents, 2.5 million photos and slides, 4,000 books and 1,700 hours of video material – the Porsche AG Historical Archive is a repository of all important information that has an economic, technical, social or cultural connection to Porsche AG.

It is not some dingy storage space, but rather a resource designed to expand knowledge about the brand for the purposes of historical public relations work, and for sharing information with Porsche fans all over the world.

This goal is fulfilled via the company’s own publications, as well as through the communication of historical content at exhibitions, trade fairs and other events. In addition, Porsche Archive employees process over 6,000 requests from internal departments, journalists, scientists and authors of books on development, motorsport and the company’s history.

Another key area of importance for the archive is legal issues: if needed, the archive can be consulted to gather information about previous cases. After all, the company archive represents the memory of Porsche AG.

Hidden treasures

The Porsche archive's holdings now cover some 2,000 metres of shelf space - stored in bookshelves, showcases, steel cabinets and safes.

Instead of depriving you of the opportunity to see the treasures hidden there, we'd like to give you the chance to find out more about selected highlights from the Porsche archive.
