Places to See: Stuttgart's Porsche Museum

Over the past few years BMW and Mercedes set the pace for automotive museums with their architectural feats. But don’t count Porsche out. Much like car comparisons, each company took design risks to establish their uniqueness while articulating their tradition. For Porsche – the classic speedster – their futuristic ode to all things speed is a beautiful sight located in Stuttgart.

From some angles it looks like a giant spoiler, seeming to make a literal nod to the speed-boosting feature of classic Porsche sports cars. However, Martin Josst, a partner at Delugan Meissl, says that wasn’t the intention. ‘A lot of people say it reminds them of a spoiler, but that wasn’t the analogy we wanted to make.
