Museum Exhibit Explores Porsche Lineage from ’30s to Today

One of our readers tipped us off about a special automotive exhibition, going on in Raleigh, North Carolina, at the North Carolina Museum of Art. The show is called Porsche by Design: Seducing Speed, and is up until January 20. The exhibit explores the history and development of the Porsche lineage from the 1930s to the present day. It features 22 cars that are owned by the likes of Ralph Lauren, Steve McQueen, Janis Joplin, and even the owner of two Porsches that we recently filmed, Jeff Zwart, as well as the one-of-a-kind Panamericana concept car on loan from the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.

If you live near Raleigh or will be in the area for the holidays, this would be a great family holiday activity—even if your friends or family don’t appreciate cars like you do, art lovers will also be intrigued by Porsche design and the connections that can be drawn with other works of art.

Below are a few of the cars from the exhibition from the Porsche by Design website.

This looks like a wonderful show.
What a treat for those who can make it.
I don’t see a 936 or 956, but I love me all those Porsche racing cars: all business.
Singer had it going on. Good times.

I’m hustling to get my 944 Turbo road trip ready to make it down before the exhibit closes. I’ve heard nothing but good things about the exhibit.

Bring an extra $50 for the hardcover book. Great collectors item.

Incredible show! this is really a big deal, and considering that Porsche just doesn’t normally do stuff like this outside of Germany makes it even more special for us here in NC! Worth traveling long distance for!
