April 2014

Panorama Photo/Video Gallery

The April 2014 issue of PCA’s Porsche Panorama is winding its way to your mailbox, and will be available in digital form on April 10.

For this issue, engineer Pete von Behrens analyzes the 919 Hybrid, a four-wheeled racing lab with a singular goal: victory at Le Mans. Kieron Fennelly introduces us to Valentin Schäffer, the quiet force behind Porsche’s turbocharged dominance on road and track. If you’ve been wondering about Porsche’s new Macan SUV, Randy Leffingwell answers the critical questions: Does it deliver, and is it any fun to drive?

Or perhaps you’ve been feeling the need to hit the road? Pete von Behrens takes us on an adventure along the challenging coastal roads of Northern California in a trio of 997 GT3s—an RS 3.8, a RS 4.0, and a 4.1-liter RS claiming a remarkable 540 hp. German author Helmut Werb tells the fascinating tale of Robert Bosch, a slacker-turned-industrialist who founded one of the world’s great companies. Finally, Doug Demuro considers silly German cars in Porsche’s Last Laugh.

Of course, regular Panorama departments Art & Canvas, European Windows, Junior Driver, From the Regions, Street Talk, Tech Q&A, and zwART are all present and accounted for. Enjoy the issue!
