Buy a ticket to the Porsche Museum, get a 25-percent discount on a Mercedes-Benz Museum ticket, and vice versa.

Without any doubt, the most important collaboration between the two automakers was in the early 1990s when the lovely Porsche-built Mercedes-Benz 500E came out. Now, the German marques are joining forces once again, but unfortunately this time around we’re not dealing with a new car. Instead, the two are attempting to lure in more visitors at their museums which are both located in Stuttgart.

You will be able to take advantage of a 25-percent discount on the purchase of a ticket to the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Bad Cannstatt by showing a ticket stub from the Porsche Museum in Zuffenhausen. Needless to say, the deal works both ways, so you’ll get the same discount from Porsche if you will show them the ticket from Mercedes’ museum.

Available until December 30, the special offer cuts the regular ticket price from eight euros to only six, while the concessionary price drops from four to three euros. It’s worth mentioning the Mercedes and Porsche museums will be swapping cars next month, with a 1966 W 111 230 S to be showcased at Porsche’s museum, while a 1975 911 Carrera 2.7 will be on display at the Mercedes museum.

If it sounds like a good deal, both museums can be visited from Tuesday to Sunday between 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM.

A discount on museum tickets is nice and all, but how about a joint effort to create something along the lines of the hand-built 500E?
