Panorama Photo Gallery - April 2009

Each month, Porsche Panorama magazine brings you the best from the world of Porsche. Races, vintage car shows, technical articles, we cover it all!

At Panorama, we never have room for all the pictures we'd like to share with our readers. Here are some photos that just wouldn't fit into the magazine this month.

Featured in the April issue is a story from Fred Senn, an advertising executive who visited Ferry Porsche at his home in Stuttgart for a series of television commercials in the late 1980s. For this month’s gallery, we bring you a group of Leonard Turner’s photographs of the iconic man who changed Porsche from a design bureau to an automobile manufacturing company.

We refer you to the magazine for even more articles. How do you get your copy? Join PCA, Porsche Panorama is a prime benefit of membership!

Check out the April issue to read Senn’s story about the making of “Timelessness,” along with a Panorama Profile on David Donohue. You’ll enjoy the account of a 356 odyssey two young members of Nord Stern Region embarked on, covering more than 4000 miles. There is a touching story about racing with a cause, and Bob Purgason tells you everything you need to know about how to buy a Boxster. All great reading in the latest edition of Porsche Panorama.
