Issue 738

This month's Panorama is dedicated to celebrating Porsche’s 70th birthday, with a look back at the defining moments in the automaker’s history as we celebrate its bold moves into the future. Starting with Jonathan Stein’s feature on the Gmünd coupe versus an MG TC in "356: Technology Trumps Tradition," the issue moves forward to "Fast When Nothing Was" by Art Mason, about a time when regulations choked the U.S. automotive industry, but Porsche’s 930 Turbo brought hope. Nathan Merz's "On All Fours" looks at the 964 and Porsche’s innovations with all-wheel drive, and Csaba Csere delves into the history of PDK with "Dual-Clutch Pioneer." As we move forward, Nick Jaynes takes a look at Porsche’s first SUV, the Cayenne, and its effect on the company in "Moonshot," and Tom Voelk drives the electric future, the Taycan, in "Mission Accomplished." Last but not least, in "30 Minuten mit Klaus" Editor-in-Chief Rob Sass talks with PCNA CEO Klaus Zellmer about Porsche's present and future.
