I haven't been to the museum yet to check this exhibit out, but I have some friends who got a sneak peek on members day and the pictures of the cars they shared on social media were pretty awesome. I think there are at least 22 cars on display and the exhibit runs today through January. Definitely worth checking out. I hope to visit the museum soon. I don't get over there as often as I would like.

I'm definitely going, and will think about taking my 8 yr old son. I just started a 32-page magazine article on the history of the Porsche 911 (pronounced "por-sheh" ) and that will be a great lead-in for the exhibit.

It is also interesting to read the history of Mr. Porsche, Hitler and the Volkswagen.

Thanks for this. Look forward to going. If only there were a 918 on display.

Remember that this is a timed ticket event - So you need to reserve a day/time before you visit the museum for this exhibit. NRG's link will take you to a page where you can click to make ticket purchases.
As usual for these exhibits, museum members get one free ticket but still need reservations.

The cars from the "Ingram Collection" are owned by the Ingram family. Bob Ingram is a former GSK RTP exec. Some background on the Ingram Gmund here:

There are some iconic cars in that display. Would love to go see them, but not sure it'll happen.
