Petersen Automotive Museum – Display For Rarest Porsches in America

The Porsche Effect, a display that focuses on the impact of the German car from a cultural and design perspective with a selection of sports and race cars along with renderings and engines opens at the Peterson Automotive Museum on Feb. 3. It is also the car manufacturer’s 70th anniversary.

The exhibition is made up of dozens of cars, historical documents and artifacts that trace the evolution of the cars not just as road and race vehicles, but also as works of kinetic art. Models on display include a very rare 1938 Berlin-Rome Type 64 race car, Steve McQueen’s 1958 Porsche 356A 1600 Super Speedster, and a Porsche Gulf 917K.
