Type 64In October 2013, members of the Mountain Area, Carolinas Region visited the North Carolina Museum of Art to see the Porsche by Design exhibit, which celetrated the 50th anniversary of the 911. The pictures are old; the cars are timeless.

On a Friday evening, Area members visited the Ingram Collection of classic Porsches in Durham. The cars are impressive, photograming them isn't allowed, but to make up for this, the Collection offered us enough hors d'oeuvres to constitute a dinner. Then we spent most of Saturday morning at the Museum in Raleigh, which had amassed classic Porsches from all over the world (including a few from the Ingram Collection) for their first automotive design exhibition. To quote from the Museum, "These superlatve examples of the signature Porsche design principles – mimimalism, aerodynamic fulidity, and technical innovation – illustrate the history of this unique manufacturer, from the 1930s to the present day." The photos were taken by Dick Maybach.
