• Once you get to the traffic circle with the museum & dealership, turn right and park in the garage under the museum. Its on the left side of the museum.


I know there are a lot of Porsche fans here on BimmerPost.com… so I thought I would treat you to a very special museum. This is a MUST SEE place when coming to Germany – I think. In fact I saw THREE M3’s on ED tour while driving around near Porsche Musuem.


Ok, onto my photo tour…
