    Stuttgart 2017: AMG Facility as well as Porsche and Mercedes-Benz Museums

    After a stop at the Frankfurt IAA, we took the 1-hour train ride to our home base Stuttgart. Here are a few pictures taken at AMG's Affalterbach facility where they develop their cars, perform repairs and customization work, and build V8 engines. Photos are not allowed during the engine building facility tour, where one man (or woman) completes an engine build from end to end in about 3 hours.

    Original home of Co-Founder Hans Werner Aufrecht (his wife worked as a hair stylist is one room), original factory and current showroom.

    Porsche Museum looks like a must stop. I was there in 2003 when I took delivery of the Z8 and it was just a big garage with a bunch of race cars, but not much more.

    You're due for a return visit to Zuffenhausen! We spent a good 4 hours there enjoying lunch and then the cars.
