The North Carolina Museum of Art, located across from the State Fairgrounds in Raleigh, has a special exhibition of Porsche cars and related topics beginning Saturday October 12, 2013 and continuing through January 20, 2014, with additional presentations sprinkled throughout. 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 the Ingram family of Durham, 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. There are videos as well. Tickets are typically $18 for adults with various discounts available, especially to museum members.
