“If you didn’t go to Rennsport, you have to go to this,” said curator (and Autoweek contributor) Ken Gross. “Even if you did go to Rennsport you have to go to this.”
“This” is a great collection of fantastic Porsches, brought together at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh Oct. 13, 2013 through January 20, 2014. Yes, that’s a year from now, so you have some time to plan your trip. It’s NCMA’s first design show. Gross, former director of the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles and now a sort of car-collection curator-to-the-world, gathered them all together.
“The factory is loaning us some very impressive cars that you would not otherwise see in the U.S.”
Those will number around 20 when the show comes together two weeks before next Halloween. Among the Porsches will be:
- A Type 64 from the Automuseum Prototyp in Hamburg, Germany
- Ralph Lauren’s 959
- Miles Collier’s 917 in Martini & Rossi livery
- The factory 16-cylinder race car that never ran but which they made just to show they could
- A Gmund Coupe
- Steve McQueen’s 356A Speedster on loan from son Chad
Gross points out that the NCMA also has “the largest Rodin collection in the U.S.” So you’ll be getting a twofer.
