In pics: Visited the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart with my daughter

Porsches have always been father-daughter conversations so we just had to go to the museum. And we drove across Czech, Austria, Switzerland and Germany for it.

BHPian 14000rpm recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Porsche has always been a brand that I’ve had in my ‘One fine day, I shall buy one’ list. There are other cars too but the Porsche sticks out. Part of my mid-life crisis routine, I have been looking closely at many of them for long. Drove a few in the past and it’s not just a Poster love affair.

My daughter has been taking a keenness to cars and, for some reason, she likes Porsches too. I may / may not have played a role. Came close to buying a Porsche Restored 928 GTS as well but I missed the deal. Given that Porsches have always been father-daughter conversations, we just had to go to the Museum and that day came around when we took our Summer holiday driving across Czech, Austria, Switzerland and Germany.

This a Breakout thread from the Travelogue since it deserves its own thread.

Reached the Museum quite early and quickly started the day at the coffee shop which had these cute-looking chocolates.

Quickly collected our Audio Guides and on we went to the main floor.
