Mississauga, Ontario – Less than a year after its opening, the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany has welcomed its 500,000th visitor.

“Reaching this magic figure before Christmas in our very first year is really a wonderful gift for the reason,” said Achim Stejskal, head of the museum.

The Rosenberger family marked the milestone visit, and was provided the use of a four-door Panamera for a weekend to mark the occasion.

The museum opened on January 31, 2009 and currently features a special “Panamera Moment” exhibition that runs until February 28, 2010.
