With a day to spare on a recent European road trip, I couldn’t fight the urger to head south to Stuttgart and take in Porsche’s famous museum. Far more than just a typical automotive museum, the Porsche Museum is an attraction for both car fans and non-car fans alike. The first thing that greets you is the incredible exterior of the building. I would never claim to be an architecture aficionado, but this left me in complete awe. But for all the steel and glass on the outside, how the museum itself is laid out, in its ever so slight upwards spiral, is a true work of art. During my visit, the museum was celebrating 50 years of the Porsche 911 and as such, the majority of the collection reflected arguably the greatest sports car ever built. Still, there was plenty on display to satisfy the appetite of even this part-time Porsche fan.
It’s been a busy few weeks so I’m only getting around to posting these images from Ford Fair now. The event took place at Silverstone and was a massive hit. With an estimated 3,500 exhibitor cars on show, I didn’t even see half of them during the course of the day such was the quality on show. There wasn’t a section you could walk past, every car promised some sort of detail that could be appreciated. The rest of the images are after the jump.
