From January 25 to April 28, 2013, the ‘Porsche Style and Design’ display will highlight various Porsche road and race cars, including the 356, 911, 914 models. Modern cars will also take part in this exhibit that encompasses the full history of Porsche and celebrates the 50th anniversary of the 911. This exhibit will display numerous products from Porsche – the design firm, and Porsche – the sports car manufacturer, that enabled the company to succeed and prosper. While Porsche profited as an engineering design firm, its fame came from the achievements of its sports cars, an admired style on the highway and a winning design on the race track.
As a special program in conjunction with this exhibit the AACA Museum will feature “An Evening with Karl Ludvigsen”, the famed Porsche author, on Friday, April 19th. Karl is an automotive author who recently won the Dean Batchelor Award, the highest honor in automotive journalism for his book Porsche: Origin of the Species. This will be a special ticketed event with more details to follow. This event will also kick-off the Central Pennsylvania Porsche Swap Meet, held in Hershey April 20 and 21.
