Starting Sept. 16, visitors can admire the highly refined geometry of the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT Roadster. Designed to achieve high performance at extreme speeds, this roadster utilizes the latest in aerodynamic and construction technologies. Its monocoque or single-shell body and frame are made entirely of carbon fiber. Reducing weight while maintaining strength and rigidity, the black carbon fiber composite material makes this machine one of the top-most performers in its industry while adding a modern and sexy air to its appearance.
Supporting the Cincinnati Art Museum’s renewed commitment to showcase art and design across multiple disciplines, classic and concept cars will introduce visitors to industrial design and its place in the history of art.
