The Mercedes-Benz 500E Is the Original Porsche Sedan
Doug DeMuro
The Mercedes-Benz 500E was the original Porsche sedan. Today I'm reviewing a 500E to explain what I mean, and to show you around a classic Mercedes in excellent condition. I'm also driving the 500E to show you what it's like on the road.

    I used to have a 1992 500E W124..... I really miss it...... what an amazing car.

    What's the big deal about this car besides the Porsche connection? BMW had a v8 in their midsize model... everyone just forgot the e34 540i? That car was no slouch and was offered in manual transmission.

    I really hope this comment doesn't get buried under all these memes, but I just gotta say. The contextual history you provide on older cars is just fantastic. Particularly how when you presented the 500E's HP, then compared it to the M5 of the time, was a great comparison that really puts the number into perspective. Not to mention giving the backstory on how the car ended up being built by Porsche. You can really hear your passion for the cars and the history in your voice. Gotta love it. Don't let your quirks and features change Dougie Doug!

    watching this 500E review makes me miss our old 1990 230E which has more similarities than differences to this V8 one.

    Doug you missed the quirk of the mono wiper arm changes length as it wipes. Slow the video and you’ll see it extend toward the upper windshield corners but retracts when passing the top and the sides.

    I absolutely love how these look from the exterior... they are so nice looking especially with the flares. I love MB but this beats the new stuff hands down to me in the looks dept...

  • cscac

    Don’t forget! The 500E had slightly different headlight lenses from lesser E classes!

  • Penguinn

    Please! Doug needs millions of more viewers so he can afford pants that come all the way down his legs and a shirt with an actual collar. Oh, the humanity!

    in my 1992 300CE24 the Phone is a Siemens, mounted in the right side of the centerconsole in a MB OEM holder. It works and i have a basic subscription in it ... just because... btw. the "Little man" ia anatomically in proportions with children 4-8 years old, it's not a man, it's a kid.

    Hmmm - most of the "Quirks" are just W124 standard equipment. My car has the same AC controls, side mirror controls and used to have a phone gear, but in a different place. It's just, mine is a 2 litres four bangers for the Italian market... 120 hp... I wish it was one of this.

    If I'm not mistaken Holden and Ford have been putting V8s in mid sized sedans since the 70s for the Australian market

    My 1990 560 SEC is much more beautiful than this one

    • Rimrock300

      But this is a E500 4 door sedan, a complete other model. Your comparison makes little sense. Anyway, we are all happy that you are not hating your SEC.

    There was a version of this car that was INDESTRUCTIBLE, it was W124 E250D. This guy could make up to 2 million kilometers with regular maintenance.

  • KingRichard

    The 500E is amazing, and despite being in the same vehicle class as the e34 M5, I can’t compare the two. I like them both equally for totally different reasons. The 500E is like the perfect highway cruiser with its healthy V8 and automatic, and the M5 is all about fun with the amazing I6 and manual box. Love em bothZ

    Stop spreading Porsche bullshit. Porsche had nothing to do with R&D on this car. Their factory was just assembling it.

    • Rimrock300

      What is your sources? Easily available information says Porsche was hired to redesign the motor bay of of the W124 to accommodate for the 500 engine in addition to assemble the E500's

    I had 2 E-Classes from the era: Lots of problems and several strandings despite the best maintenance. Can't imagine that a Porsche connection would improve reliability.

    • Rimrock300

      It is known the first years had a some electrical issues, like around 86-87 I've heard. My w124 '95 have never had any eletrical issues whatsoever. Just changing brakes, fluids and such, keep on rolling for 25 more years;) It's a 300 diesel. I've got little experience with the gasoline versions
