Panorama Photo Gallery - August 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 August issue is our first driving report on the amazing Porsche Panamera, the first four-door sports car ever offered by the company. For this month’s Gallery, we bring you some of Leonard Turner’s unpublished photos from the recent press launch in southern Germany.

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!

Though it weighs around 4000 pounds, the Panameras are both agile and fast, with the Turbo reaching 60 mph in four seconds flat.

In addition to Turbo, the Panamera line includes the 400 horsepower Panamera S (left) and the four-wheel-drive 4S.

Check out the August issue for the full driving report on the Panamera, read the inside story of this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans along with an irreverent take-off on the French Classic called the 24 Hours of LeMons. On the technical side, find out how to clean your Porsche engine safely and follow a pictorial guide to how to find a Boxster engine in the first place. Michael Brake, a Canadian PCAer, muses on the spirit within his Porsche and Michael Cotton brings us up to date on the machinations at Porsche and Volkswagen. All great reading in the August issue of Porsche Panorama.
