In this issue, follow the story of contributor David Mathews’ 911 and 914-4 as they become one 914-6 in “Transformation.” A former racer journeyed from the track to hot rods and now finds joy in his cosmetically unrestored 356 Speedster, in “An Authentic Speedster” by Sean Cridland. Ever wondered how fast a Porsche reimagined by Singer with the 4.0-liter engine can go? In “Sun Valley Special” by Randy Wells, one owner did just that during a top-speed run in Idaho. Learn about the ultimate front-engined four-cylinder Porsche to come straight from the factory, the 968 Turbo RS race car in Glen Smale’s “Über 968.”

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