Porsche Peachtree Drive

Corinna with a Porsche and the Governor's Mansion

If you were up early Sunday morning, you may have seen us.

Hundreds of Porsche Roadsters lined up in a caravan down Peachtree Street.

It was stretch for me to be up at 8 am on a Sunday — but for the Governor’s Mansion, I rallied.

After drinking coffee with all the members of the Peachtree Porsche Club, we all got a lecture from the motorcycle officers who’d agreed to be our escorts.

“If you run out of gas,” he told us “don’t try to leave the formation. Chances are you’ll hit one of us”.

With that warning, we headed down the High Museum in Midtown.

It was all to celebrate the opening of a new exhibit called “The Allure of the Automobile”, featuring 18 of the most unusual vehicles in the world.

Highlights include the aluminum body of a “Type 64” Porsche.

The 71-year old design is viewed as the precursor of all Porsches and had to be shipped here specially from The Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.

So beautiful!

And well worth getting up early for…

“The Allure of the Automobile” will be at the High Museum through June 20th.
