In the fight against the spread of the novel coronavirus or popularly known now as COVID-19, Porsche, like many other car companies, has temporarily shut down some of its facilities. That includes the famous Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany. 

However, Porsche says that it is very committed to keeping in touch with its loyal fanbase. As such, the German sports car company is now offering a way for petrol heads and their loved ones to learn more about Porsche racing and series production cars.
