Porsche by Design: Seducing Speed features 22 automobiles that together trace the evolution of the singular Porsche design aesthetic from its inception in the 1930s through the present day.

Highlights of Porsche by Design include:

• The 1938/9 Type 64 Berlin-Rom racer designed by Porsche founder Dr. Ferdinand Porsche; it is the precursor to all Porsche automobiles manufactured after 1948.

• A handcrafted 1949 Gmünd coupe designed by Dr. Porsche’s son “Ferry” Porsche, one of about 50 aluminum-bodied sports cars from the first Porsche “factory,” a converted sawmill in Gmünd, Austria.

• Steve McQueen’s iconic Porsche Speedster, a Type 356 from 1958, synonymous with the late Golden Age in Hollywood, on loan to the Museum from his son Chad McQueen.

• A rare Type 804 Formula One race car, one of only four of this model ever built, and the car that Dan Gurney raced to victory at the French Grand Prix.

• Janis Joplin’s psychedelic Porsche Type 356C, on loan to the NCMA from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.

• A Porsche GT3 R hybrid race car prototype from 2010.
