Porsche by Design: Seducing Speed marks the North Carolina Museum of Art’s first design exhibition, exploring the history and development of the Porsche lineage from the 1930s to the present day.

Featuring 22 automobiles, Porsche by Design presents cars owned by Ralph Lauren, Steve McQueen, and Janis Joplin, as well as the one-of-a-kind Panamericana concept car on loan from the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.

Car lovers will appreciate the rarity and engineering genius of the automobiles on view. Art lovers will be intrigued by Porsche design and the connections that can be drawn with other works of art. All will gain a deep appreciation for hallmarks of the Porsche make: beauty, artistry, technology, and innovation.

Here is a superb video for the Porsche Carrera Gt built between 2003 and 2006. The Carrera GT is the modern classic. Surely nothing like it will ever be built again. No longer can we sell something that is designed to be a challenge to the expert.

Watch too for the shots of the 550 speedster used as a camera car.And be sure to turn the sound up.


p.s. There was a great 550 spyder on display at the Porsche Experience in Siverstone. You can go in and take a look. What I liked was it had patina, you could see it had lived a life. I like that. perfection we can create, patina we cannot.
