The North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh is preparing an exhibition, Porsche by Design: Seducing Speed, exploring the history and development of the marque from the 1930s to the present day. Opening Oct. 12, the show features more than 20 automobiles, including cars owned by Ralph Lauren, Steve McQueen and Janis Joplin (pictured above), 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.
