Kids on board

Fresh 2023 inclusions hit the gas on Esports, games and challenges, virtual racing and a LEGO building area, where budding engineers can create giant block-built masterpieces. And Porsche4Kids mascots Tom Targa and Tina Turbo are back on the circuit again this year.
The DRVN by Porsche café is also making a return lap for 2023 with high-performance coffee and pizza. Mattar Farm will be offering its Texas-style smoked burgers and BBQ.

A look in the rearview
The Porsche Museum serves up an intimate look at some classic Porsche Models. Amongst them – vehicles from a convoy of collector’s cars that recently made the journey from Stuttgart to Dubai as part of the 75th Anniversary of Porsche celebrations. You can also switch gear and salute the 60 years of the legendary 911 sports coupe. The exhibition includes an example of every 911 generation from 1963 to today as well as models that raced at LeMans and Daytona, and some very special limited editions.
