If you ever happen to be in Germany, you simply have to make some time to visit the Porsche
Museum in Stuttgart. This beautiful structure is packed to the gills with some of the rarest, most significant Porsches
ever made – as you'd probably expect it would be. Here's what you might not know, however: Porsche considers this to be the static anchor of a living museum, which acquires and restores rare Porsches and showcases them in running condition all over the world. Senior Editor Alex Kierstein had a chance to peek behind the curtain into the museum's garage to watch some priceless cars being wrenched on, and even got to hear a very special competition 911 start up.
Come with us on a virtual tour of the highlights of a gearhead mecca, and then hop in the passenger seat of a very special drive of a classic 1970 911S Targa for a drive around town. If this episode gets your pulse racing, be sure to check out Porsche Drive
, a program based out of the museum that will rent you brand new Porsches by the hour.
Each week, new episodes will launch on the AutoblogVR App. We'll be posting them here on Autoblog
