Some places feel magical, other places carry great historical significance, yet other places seem to hold the promise of a future. If you have ever been fortunate enough to see the Ingram family’s Porsche collection, you will realize that all those elements come into play: it is a magical place that carries historical significance with a promise of a magnificent future ahead.

Bob Ingram and his wife, Jeanie, embarked on their collection in the late 1990s, amassing a collection of 80 exquisite Porsche models that greatly represent a captivating cross-section of the marque’s cars for the past seven decades. The Ingram couple from Durham, North Carolina, share their Porsche passion with their sons, Rory and Cam. 

Touring the collection is like a trip back in time. The extensive breadth of the collection spans from one of the early Coupés that came from Gmünd, Austria, to the latest masterpieces from Zuffenhausen like the 991 generation Porsche 911 Speedster.  

“We are incredibly proud and at the same time feel very honored that we are allowed to take care of these cars.”

Bob Ingram, who is 78 years old shares, with enthusiasm, how he always takes into consideration the cars’ former owners, especially for the older models in his collection. 

“It is in that spirit that we want to preserve the cars for the future. There is no other company in the world that can draw on such a loyal fan base,” he says. 

Cam, his son adds:

“The most exciting thing is the stories behind the cars. Through our collection, we become part of contemporary history, of the cars and the people,”
