This month’s cover story is a bit different from our usual feature: a visual exploration of the exquisite details of a “Carbon Copy” 935. At 2019’s Parade, we met Patty Reilly, who drove her 2017 Lava Orange 911 Targa 4S across the country to compete in concours, because she does things “Her Way.” Car colors, like styles, come in and out of fashion. But for Craig Staley, his Lime Green Metallic 1979 911 SC is no “Ugly Duckling.” Fifty years ago, Porsche won Le Mans overall for the very first time, in a wet and rainy race. We look back at what it took in “Splashdown.” In September 2019, Porsche completed a massive multibillion-dollar factory to build the Taycan electric sedan. Take a look inside in “Doing it the Hard Way.” Gold Coast Region members Steve and Lynn Bamdas own a rare Meissen Blue 1959 Convertible D. Read about how they found and restored it in “Into the Blue.”

All this, plus more intrigue in ”The Spy Collector,” and the debut of the brand-new Mart.
