Petersen Automotive Museum Adds Porsche Exhibit For 2018
Beginning February 2018, Los Angeles car museum is getting the best Porsche exhibit this side of Stuttgart.
When the name Porsche is mentioned, it immediately brings to mind thoughts of beauty, driving engagement, and performance. Over the decades Porsche has built a legacy based on impeccable design, racing domination and unstoppable drive to make the world’s best drivers cars.
In short, Porsche is one of the world’s greatest car brands, and it deserves to be celebrated for its achievements. Starting next year, you can do just that, as the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles is opening up an exclusive exhibit called “The Porsche Effect.”

This new exhibit starts next February and runs until January 2019. It will feature a display of cars that covers the full breadth of Porsche history including the Porsche 901, the 1973 911 RS, and more. A full list of cars has not been released yet, but expect other iconic and brand-defining machines from Stuttgart like the Porsche 959 and 917K, as well as modern marvels like the 918 Spyder.
Based on the tone from the people involved, we feel that everyone is very excited about this new exhibit, and it is said the be the comprehensive Porsche exhibit outside of Porsche’s own Stuttgart museum. “Porsche has been overwhelmingly successful in every field they have entered, pushing the boundaries both on and off the track,” said Peter Mullin, Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Petersen. “This display of extremely rare Porsche sports cars on a grand scale is a tribute to the spirit of the marque.”
Rennsport Reunion VI is happening later this month, and we expect some more details about this event might be revealed at that time. Otherwise, we have been promised that more cars will be unveiled in the next few months leading up to the opening of the display. Until that info arrives, why not take a minute to look through a gallery of some of our favorite Porsches that we hope will make it to the museum display.
