31 May Not strictly Porsche – the Mercedes Museum
Not strictly Porsche – the Mercedes Museum
I was in Stuttgart recently to visit the Porsche Museum and thought I’d drop by at the competition: Mercedes. Here are a few selected pictures.
What I am about to write now may sound blasphemous, but here you go: The Mercedes Museum is actually a better experience than its Porsche equivalent.
Not just because the building was designed by Norman Foster. As sheer architectural performance goes, the Porsche Museum has nothing to be ashamed of. It’s not about the great restaurant at Mercedes either. Even though the Schwäbischer Ofenschlupfer has a yummieness factor of 9 out of 10.
No, it’s really about the whole experience. After all, the good people at Mercedes practically invented the car, so they have 100+ years of history to show, where as Porsche, well … just perfected it.
