It has been a while since I've driven our long-term 2012 Mercedes SLS convertible. I'd forgotten how much attention this car draws from passersby. People on the street stop you to ask if they can take pictures, saying things like, "I've never seen this Mercedes in person before."

As long as I'm not in a hurry I never mind chatting up car people and letting them take pictures.

My neighbor across the street is a huge Porsche fan and owns a Porsche 911 Carrera 4S. He thought it would be fun to photograph the cars side by side.

He was amazed at how large the SLS's brakes are, even compared to those on this Porsche, which are not small. Then we went for a ride.

Two great cars on a summer's day.
