The Porsche Museum recently commenced the 'Project: Top Secret' exhibit in Stuttgart, Germany. From September 17, 2014 until January 11, 2015, the expo will feature 16 unique cars that have never been shown to the public including classified concepts, camouflaged prototypes, test vehicles, experimental cars and record breaking automobiles.

Most of the cars present during the exhibition never made it into production due to budget or technical reasons but their design was utilized in the development of future cars made by the German automaker. Some of the cars that are currently on display are the 'Forschungsprojekt Langzeit Auto' (Extended Durability Research Vehicle), Porsche 959 aerodynamic prototype, 928 Cabriolet, 965 high-performance sports with a water-cooled V8 mounted at the rear and the Type 986 A4 subframe which became the basis of the mid-engine layout of the Porsche Boxster. As a centerpiece of the exhibit, a 'rolling chassis' version of the Porsche 918 is also displayed.

On Sundays, a special program will be held from 2:00pm-5:00pm starting September 28, wherein special guided tours will take place as well as a scavenger hunt and a camouflaging event for the Porsche 918 Spyder.

The event will be open from Tuesday to Sunday from 9:00am-6:00pm. Price of admission is at EUR 8 (about PHP 457) for adults, while a discounted price of EUR 4 (about PHP 228) for students or Porsche Classic cardholders.
