#Porsche #Exhibition #Petersen #Automotive #Museum #LA #beyondcoolmag For seven decades, the Stuttgart based automaker has been successful on racetracks and in dealership showrooms around the world, thanks to a combination of innovative engineering, an evolutionary design and the resulting dynamic brand that has inspired diehard fans for generations.
Celebrating the worldwide impact of Porsche’s legendary machines, the Petersen #automotive Museum presents “The #Porsche Effect”. The new exhibit, taged in the Mullin Grand Salon, is organized in partnership with #Porsche Cars North America and the #Porschemuseum in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen. It features a collection of cars, historical documents and artifacts that will showcase the vehicles as kinetic art and illustrate the evolution of the brand itself—from early in the company’s engineering house beginnings through its modern-day road and race cars.
55 exhibits are on exclusive loan from the #Porsche Museum“We are thrilled to share this incredible history with the public in an experience that both passionate enthusiasts and casual fans will surely appreciate and enjoy”, Peter Mullin, Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Petersen, says. Some of the vehicles on display include the 1938 Berlin-Rome Type 64 race car, a 906 race car, the 919 endurance racer, the Petersen Collection’s 901 and Continental, a rare model “X83” Turbo S Flachbau 964, a rally-spec Type 953 911, the world-beating Gulf 917K, the Jägermeister 962, the legendary #Porsche 935 K3 Le Mans winner belonging to Petersen vice-chairman Bruce Meyer and more.
As an exclusive loan from the #Porschemuseum, two rare four-door prototypes – the 928 H50 and the concept car 989 – and 53 other small exhibits from the #Porsche archive will be shown. For the first time, the company is providing motors of the 356, 917 and 956 models, Ferdinand Porsche’s passport and drawings from the development of the 911 at a US exhibition. Additionally, the #Porsche archive supports with extensive historical images and posters from 1953.
