Porsche Goes Faster, Further.
“A lot of companies race because it’s good for the brand. Porsche races because it’s the air they breathe.” – Dan Neil
This video, put together to promote Porsche By Design: Seducing Speed, an exhibition at the North Carolina Museum of Art, goes to a who’s-who of Porsche racing royalty to discover what makes Porsches go faster, further.
“You’d talk to the drivers. Derek bell who drove the 917. They’d say I can’t believe we got into those things. They were incredibly dangerous. Your feet were ahead of the front wheels. You were sitting in front of a 12-cylinder engine.” – Robert Cumberford
It centers around the 917, even briefly featuring the rare 16-cylinder development, is packed with historic racing footage of Porsches in action and features some really interesting insights into Porsche’s racing philosophy and drive. Great stuff!
Porsche by Design: Seducing Speed is on at the North Carolina Museum of Art from the October 12, 2013 to January 20, 2014.
