February 2018

In this issue, Randy Wells compares and drives a 1976 911 Carrera 2.7 and 1977 911 Turbo in “Back to Back.” In “Barrier Breaker,” by Sean Cridland, read the exploits of 356 racer René Brinkerhoff, who has competed in La Carrera Panamericana four times and will embark on an international tour. Nathan Merz explores how different shades of paint go beyond aesthetics in “The Power of Color.” Robert Plotkin couldn’t escape his seller’s remorse after letting go of a 1973 911S — until he bought a special 1971 911S in Italy and drove it around Europe, as you’ll find out in “Albert Blue.” Grant E. Stoecker walks us through a handful of spectacular timepieces in “Porsche Inspired.”

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!
