"The Porsche Effect" at the Petersen museum.

This was in the parking structure.
1969 Porsche 912. The low-cost alternative to the 911.


1956 Porsche 550. Built for racing, this one was never raced and is the best example of the 90 produced.




1997 Porsche 911 GT1. It was the first water-cooled engine. Of 36 races, this example had 8 wins and 21 podium finishes.




1967 Porsche 910. It won its class and placed 9th overall at Le Mans in 1969, and they finished 1-2-3-4 at the Nurburgring 1000Km in 1967.




1939 Porsche Type 64-60K10. Built to race the 1939 Berlin-Rome endurance race which was canceled due to WWII. Only 3 were built, and this was reconstructed mostly from #2 parts.




1964 Porsche 901. The designation was changed to 911 as Peugeot claimed the trademark to 3-digit numbers with a zero in the middle.




2000 Porsche Carrera GT. Of two prototypes built, this is the only survivor.




1955 Porsche Continental Cabriolet was derived from the 356. An influential importer suggested the American buyers would rather have a car with a name rather than a number. However, after Ford informed them they already had a Continental, the name reverted to numbers.




1955 Porsche 550-1500 RS Spyder. The first Porche built specifically for racing, it finished 2nd in points for its class in 1956.




1966 Porsche 906 Carrera 6. A focus on aerodynamics with rounded windshield, covered headlights and the "Kamm" tail.


1969 Porsche 917K. Race rules allowed a bigger 600 HP engine. Aerodynamic lift issues early were solved with a different tail. First of Porsche's 19 wins at Le Mans in 1970.




1983 Porsche 956. All-new for 1982. It won Le Mans in its debut, plus World Endurance and Driver Championships. 17 more were built and raced for 1983-86.


1985 Porsche 959 "Paris-Dakar". Features electronically-controlled all-wheel drive, and a sequential turbocharging system. The 959 finished 1-2-6 in the 1986 rally.




2008 Porsche RS Spyder. Partnered with Penske Racing, the Spyder had 24 class wins, 11 overall wins, and won the manufacturers, drivers and team championships in each of its 3 years.




2015 Porsche 919 Hybrid. Has a 500 HP gas engine, and 400+ HP electric motor. In 2015 it won Nurburgring 6 Hours, Circuits of Americas 6 Hours, Fuji 6 Hours, and finished 2nd at Le Mans.




1979 Porsche 935 K3. Overall winner at 1979's Le Mans.




1979 Porsche 911 Turbo. The iconic Porsche with "tea tray" tail.




1958 Porsche 356A 1500 Super Speedster. Owned by actor Steve McQueen who raced with some success.


1949 Porsche 356-2 Gmund Coupe. This is the 50th, and possibly last, vehicle made in the Gmund, Austria factory.


1976 Porsche 911 Turbo Carrera. More muscular body and wider tires than the normal 911.




2016 Porsche 911 GTS Club Coupe. In honor of the 60th anniversary of the Porsche Club of America, 59 of these were sold to PCA members in a lottery system, and one lucky member got a freebie.


1987 Porsche 928 H50. This 4-person, 2-door concept is the only one made.


Cheers!

Some real eye candy in that lot. My favourite has to be the 917K in Gulf Oil colours. Those colours looked great on the Ford GT as well.

Thanks for all the comments. The 917K is perhaps my favorite Porsche racer, but I would settle for the Carrera GT around town.
