Ken Gross, guest curator of Porsche by Design: Seducing Speed

Acclaimed automotive journalist Ken Gross discusses, starting with the 1938 Type 64, how Porsche's design and engineering produced, from the outset, contemporary cars that embodied the latest trends in streamlining, engineering, suspension, and engine technology. Proven in the crucible of international racing, refined to a fare-thee-well, Porsche's fundamental formula for its cars represents a recognizable, often surprising, always delightful set of solutions to the sports car conundrum.
