Issue 677

In this issue, Pete Stout drives the new 911 GT3, Porsche’s new, PDK-only back-road/track weapon. But before he does so, he drives a manual transmission-equipped 991 Carrera S, the most sporting 911 you can buy with a clutch pedal. In The Long Crossing, Ada Lee Halofsky travels to Traverse City, Michigan, for Porsche Parade 2013, and experiences the biggest PCA event of the year and the camaraderie that exists between PCA members. Think a 356 Carrera GT Speedster is too valuable to drive? In Easy Rider, Randy Wells spends some time with the owner of one such über-rare 356 who thinks its value would be lost if he didn’t drive it. Next up, Ted West visits Watkins Glen International during a 944 Cup race weekend and discovers the most affordable way to race a Porsche in Looking for Roger Penske. Porsche is about ready to release version two of the Panamera, or type “970 II,” and in See Change, Matt Davis details the new car’s numerous updates, including the new twin-turbo V6 that replaces the V8 in the S and 4S models.

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

Issue 676

Appropriately, the redesign issue’s first feature focuses on another beginning: Porsche’s 1949 Gmünd coupe, and our cover car is still driven by its owner on the streets of Southern California. As one chapter opens, another closes, so Senior Editor Joe Rusz and crack photographer Linhbergh Nguyen paid one last visit to the legendary shops of Andial before the doors were shut for good. Zach Mayne heads to Arizona to check out one of the coolest Porsches of the 1980s—a 924 Carrera GTS Clubsport—while Randy Wells updates us on the state of 1990s 911 hot-rodding with his report on a PCA member's beautifully built 993 Speedster. Finally, Sean Cridland tells us the story of a PCAer who was so crazy about his 997 Carrera GTS that he decided to learn how to cast a bronze model of it! Regular departments such as European Windows, Street Talk, From the Regions, and Tech Q&As benefit from a fresh, new look and are joined by three new departments: a column by American Porsche Junior Program driver Connor De Phillippi, Art & Canvas by celebrated artist Nicolas Hunziker, and a new back page by famous photographer Jeff Zwart.

We hope you’ll enjoy Issue 676. If early feedback (below) from our members is anything to go by, it’s a keeper…
