Thanks for finding that. I like it even more now, for the Emory Motorsports connection.

Since they moved to LA I miss the Porsche camp-outs they used to do in the woods at Eola Village, just north of Amity, OR.

That barn was stuffed with Porsche unobtanium, in boxes on rows of shelves stretching into the gloom, like the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark. More pictures: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=porsch+campout+reunion

It closes a circle. The original Bowlus inspired Wally Byam to abandon his original design for the classic Airstream.



For those fortunate enough to live under the benevolent oversight of the EU, a polishing rouge to give it a satin finish or a vinyl wrap would be a nice mod.

I'm guessing it's aerodynamic, it's by Gordon Murray.

Background video on the designer.
