Deemed the “Ultimate Car Enthusiast Experience of a Lifetime,” the trip included a special viewing of the North Carolina Museum of Art’s (NCMA) first design exhibition, Porsche by Design: Seducing Speed, a private showing of the exclusive Ingram Collection consisting of extremely rare and prized Porsche vehicles, and an honorary dinner with Cam Ingram, co-owner of Road Scholars and a celebrated master Porsche restorer.

Two lucky guests, drawn at random, were also awarded with an all-expense paid trip to the Worldpac Supplier and Training EXPO (STX) happening in Orlando, FL in May 2014 as well as a Grand Prize all-expense paid trip for two to visit the Textar OE factory in Leverkusen, Germany.

The co-coordinated event was in celebration of the Porsche 911’s 50th year anniversary and Textar’s over 100 years in business.

Porsche by Design: Seducing Speed explores the history and development of the Porsche lineage from the 1930’s to the present day. The exhibit features more than 20 automobiles including Porsches owned by Ralph Lauren, Steve McQueen, Janis Joplin, and the one-of-a-kind Pan Americana concept car on loan from the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.

The Ingram Porsche Collection is one of the most renowned private collections of Porsches in North America. It represents a significant number of early, rare production and racing Porsches including 356s & 911s (including the 17th Gmund), 1952 American Roadster (ninth of 16 made), 1955 550 Spyder, 1961 Abarth (eighth of 20 made), 1964 904 and 30 Porsches on permanent display.
