Porsche by Design – North Carolina Museum of Art

The North Carolina Museum of Art┬áhere in Raleigh, NC will be hosting an exhibit of historic Porsche cars from October 12, 2013 to January 20, 2014. They’ve released a series of videos on Vimeo to showcase the panel of experts, collectors, designers and curators that have come together to make this happen. The introduction talks about why automobiles should be considered “hollow rolling sculptures” and the signature Porsche shape that has remained constant in its entire lineage of cars:

The third video in the series details the history of the Porsche 550 Spyder and Type 904. Both cars were successful race cars on track and beautifully functional cars on the street.
