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."
