Porsches Collections are every rare and always a great exhibition to explore. The Porsche collection of Steve Harris‘ iconic air-cooled models is now presented in the Saratoga Automobile Museum. Stay with Daily Design News and let yourself be inspired.
Able to recall being an eight-year-old boy obsessed with his uncle’s Porsche 356, Steve Harris amassed a stunning array of cars, many of which have been prominently displayed in the architectural photographs of his completed projects.
“I still remember every detail about that car, down to what it smelled like.”
“I see cars as art, and I curate them so they are appropriate to each house.”
“The backstory is these are all street cars, not race cars or track cars, but they are very rare.”
“They’ve all got interesting stories behind them, and like a painting or important piece of furniture, I’m just the caretaker.”
All of the cars found at the Porsche Collection in the exhibit are air-cooled and date from 1956 to ‘95. The event includes a 1984 911 SCRS, a one-of-20 964 RS N-GT Macau, and the notorious “widow-maker” 993 GT2, as well as multiple Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance–winning 356 Speedsters, Coupes, and Cabriolets.
Of the automobiles included in the show, Harris’s favorite from the Porsche Collection is his 1957 Carrera GT Speedster.
“I just love the way it sounds.”
Alongside the Porsche Collection will be large-scale photographs by the famous automotive photographer James Lipman, with an illustrated catalog available in July.
“There is one of every RS model that they made from 1973 to 2019.”
“I love architecture and automobiles, and being able to combine them is a treat.”
