Like Porsches? Well, don't miss the Petersen Automotive Museum's latest exhibit, The Porsche Effect, which opens on February 3 in Los Angeles, California.

The museum partnered with Porsche Cars North America, and the collection of 50 sports cars is hyped as "the most comprehensive Porsche display outside of Stuttgart."

"Over a year in the making, 'The Porsche Effect' will capture the innovative and iconic spirit of Porsche, showcasing the marque's many contributions to automotive engineering and the motorsports world," said Peter Mullin, Petersen chairman, in a statement. "We are thrilled to share this incredible history with the public in an experience that both passionate enthusiasts and casual fans will surely appreciate and enjoy."

Porsche is celebrating 70 years of building sports cars this year, and the timely show is a must-see for fans of the iconic brand.
