When I got off S- Bahn is at Neckarpark station in Stuttgart, on my way to Mercedes At the Mercedes museum, I met a group of high school students from Idaho who did a good job of summarizing the two car museums they had just visited. \"Mercedes has more details and more history,\" one of them told me . \". Porsche is more about Porsche and its racing traditions, he said. You have it. My work is done. Stuttgart is home to these two luxury brands, and as a car journalist and a car journalist, I \'ve always wanted to make a pilgrimage there. Germany does not have the same geographical center of the automobile industry as the United States in Detroit. But since the founders of these companies started their 19 th century in Stuttgart, it\'s closest to us. I heard about the Mercedes. Like the Henry Ford Museum of American innovation in Dearborn, Michigan. Detailed transportation history is provided. I also know that Stuttgart is a must. Look at Porschephiles. When my daughter Marianne moved to duseldorf, I was given an excuse to visit and it was an easy train trip. My first stop is Mercedes, which shows a fascinating journey to the birth of a car with a historical record Metal Eye sugar will surprise car enthusiasts. It\'s a story that a company is allowed to own because the founder Carl Benz is thought to have built the first car, and the other founder Gordon Daimler is following. But before I entered the museum, I was shocked by the building. It’s a double- Helix, designed by Dutch architect UNStudio, sits on round jewelry on Mercedes Street. It opened in 2006. Although Henry Ford had made the expensive car popular in the early 20 th century with his Affordable Model T, Mercedes-Benz is a engineer and inventor He in 1885 to start the installation almost-one- He invented the three-horse internal combustion engine. wheel buggy. This building provides a floor. by- Across the nine-story and 177,000-square-foot exhibition space, across the circular floor of Mercedes history, the timeline starts at the top floor. There I found a replica of the first car, next to the real Daimler car. In fact, thankfully, a horse is another breed, and it greeted me when I started traveling in the car age, when a horsepower meant what it advertised. In the eyes of me tired of the 21st century, these cars look more like devices than useful means of transport, but the engine proves the true genius of these people. With the advancement of technology, the internal combustion engine has driven the development of the world and soon appeared on buses, trucks, ships, airships and tractors, some of which are on display here. The offspring of these engines are sitting in your driveway. A few years later, cars began to look like cars, not horses. Pull the car- For example, the museum\'s 1902 HP, the oldest- Existing Mercedesbranded car. Nevertheless, the industry still uses the type of carriage to describe its model, such as Phaeton ( A light, turn on the car) Shooting Brake ( Carriage for game administrators and athletes)and cabriolet ( A carriage drawn by a foldable hood). Even the dashboard is a leftover shipping term It was the board that isolated the driver from the rocks and dirt on the road. The walls of the ramp connecting the floor are also part of the exhibition. When I went down to the fourth floor, I learned that the ramp wall was made of the airbag material polyamide, which highlighted safety. Clever. \"This is the only museum in the world that can record more than 130 years of car history and has been completed since day one,\" Mercedes spokesman Miriam Weiss wrote in an email. To be frank, the museum seems unstoppable because there is so much history to draw on and there are so many beautiful cars to lament, such as the 1955 300SL Coupe, known as Gullwing You will find the name of Mercedes, the daughter of an important customer, Mercedes jerineke ( Interestingly, Emil, her father, finally changed his last name to jerlinek. Mercedes) The logo of the company, three- The star that represents the earth, water and air. I went to the museum by train, but left with a strong desire to drive, preferably something from the AMG performance department, but alas, there was no chance. I went to the dealer at the ground floor but was told that a test drive had to be arranged about a week in advance. At the Porsche Museum, which is about seven miles from Mercedes, there is no such problem. Porsche building on three V The pillars of shape, striking, seem to float on the ground. It was designed by the relevant Architects of Delugan Meissl in Vienna and opened in 2009. For example, a representative in the lobby will let you drive 911 kilometers for about $165 an hour, up to 60 miles, but please note that you must leave a deposit of $3,000. No matter — Visit the museum first. It\'s simpler than Mercedes\'s and everything is on the first floor and a loft. With an area of over 60,000 square feet, the exhibition space is abundant. You can follow the development of the Porsche model, from the final design of the Volkswagen Beetle originally created by the company\'s founder, Ferdinand and Porsche, to the car that defines the company, 911. You can see how the stylish Model 64 racing car from the end of 1930 led to the beloved Porsche 356 and then to the 911. For fun, you can press the button to hear the engines of some cars, such as Panamera GTS and 911 gt3. It\'s also impressive to show the dozens of trophies the company has won in its 30,000 race. If you like the brand, especially its racing history, you will love this museum. \"The car has real road dirt, dirt and dents,\" Achim Stejskal, director of Museum and Historical communications at Porsche, wrote in an email about some of the museum\'s exhibits. \"All cars operate and participate in hundreds of events worldwide every year. \"Both museums relate to World War II and the role played by Mercedes and Ferdinand Porsche, who contributed part of the ramp wall explaining its use of forced labor and Allied bombing of the plant Porsche mentioned him briefly. Porsche worked as an engineer during the war when he helped Germany with tank design. But don\'t miss these two in any case. An hour factory tour across the street from Porsche Museum. ( You need to book one month in advance. ) I can watch the workers hand in hand. Making these precision sports cars, crawling on the assembly line, I was amused by 911, 718 Cayman and 718 boxes. My tour group was packed with Porsche owners who were told why their car cost so much. Interesting factory fact: it produces about 240 cars a day; 15% per cent of the labor force is women; it takes 4. It takes 5 hours to build the famous boxer engine; Most of the leather came from Austria, the guide said. Many of the cars that were being built that day were bound for China and the United States. I watched a powertrain board an orange trolley under a box of 718, which my guide called marriage on the chassis. A worker pressed a button and the power system went right into the chassis. This is a beautiful thing. I would love to follow the car to find its new owner and tell them I saw their baby was born.
