Swiss Dream Home Comes With More Porsches than Rooms

All he wanted was a heated shop for six cars. On a Swiss lake

  • Secret underground priceless Porsche lair

  • Loves brand so much he became an apprentice at 55


Hidden deep inside this Swiss villa is an astounding collection of Porsche cars. Because what’s a dream home without its own museum and garage in the basement? Disappointing, that’s what.

The home belongs to Adi Herzog, says Classic Driver, a man who dreamed of a garage where he could work on his cars. And he dreamed big with this house on the edge of Lake Lucerne with an epic view of the Alps on a good day.

It’s a home that’s been filmed for a Netflix series, and used for a Rolex watch ad, but it’s what lies beneath that catches our attention.

Dug into the ground is a cavern containing six vintage Porsche. And they’re a big part of the reason this house exists.

Herzog was a finance specialist, the piece says, and that let him get into Porsches but the time he turned 30. Since then, the collection has grown. Semi-retired at 55, he took an apprenticeship at a Zurich Porsche specialist and learned how to restore and repair his cars himself.

A lounge, a bedroom, an office, and room for six cars and a lift. That’s all Herzog wanted for his home, but that doesn’t mean a small nondescript home in a suburb. This is a massive cubic structure built on a hill that took two years to build.

In the garage, a silver 356 he drove on the Peking to Paris 13,000 km rally. There are more air-cooled 911s, and a Cayman GTS. Soon, there will be a Taycan, and a solar system is being planned to charge the most modern Porsche.
