Topic: Design Porn

One of my favourite sub-reddits is r/designporn and I wanted to have a version of it here. We have a thread for virtually anything but not about the individual beauty of an item.
It can be virtually anything you desire so long as you find it pretty or nifty in operation. It can be a car, a watch, furniture, clothes, shopping bags, anything that fits the criteria.

I'll start with a design that has sustained the test of time and is still in production, reincarnated yet has remained unrivalled in beauty.
My personal dream car, the Porsche 911 "964" Turbo II 3.6 in this exact colour.

Le Corbusier and his chaise longue

The design of which is much copied,  and for me defines him over his architectural designs. 
And of course,  highly objective but for me the prettiest car ever.

For me, it has to be the SR-71, it fascinated me when I was a kid.

Nah I'm sorry, when it comes to automotive style, nothing beats the Jaguar E-type.

Surprising that no one has mentioned a certain silver birch DB5 yet, but in honesty when it comes to Aston Martin's, imho the most gorgeous is the DBR1

ajb007/lol Touché.

I'd agree on the 2000GT but it always struck me as too much of an E-Type, but given the choice I'd get the former.
