April 2015

In the April 2015 issue, Editor Pete Stout gives us his impressions on the Cayman GT4 in "Bad Boy" after driving it on road and track in Portugal. Kieron Fenelly profiles the late Rolf Stommelen, one of Germany's best — and underrated — racing drivers in "Fahrer für alle Fälle." In "Air on Ice," Pete von Behrens takes a trip to Below Zero Ice Driving in Sweden and learns a thing or two about car control driving an air-cooled 911 in slippery conditions. Porsche's 356 Speedster was made famous thanks to its on-track prowess, but it wasn't the first lightweight racing Porsche based on a 356; read about the progenitor to Porsche's lightweight specials in Sean Cridland's "Prototyp: Sauter Porsche Roadster." John Lamm recently moved on from his 1950s Alfa Romeo to a 991-generation 911 Carrera, taking delivery in Alabama and driving it home to California, a trip detailed in "Porsche 911 Carrera: Mobile to San Clemente."

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!

Bad Boy
First drive: Cayman GT4
The Cayman GT4 may be a newcomer, but it joins the GT3 as a legitimate factory hot rod.
Fahrer für alle Fälle
A driver for all circumstances
Remembering a racer who earned his reputation for being able to drive any car, anywhere.
Air on Ice
Old 911s, new tricks
An old-school 911 in studded tires just might be the ultimate educator.
Prototyp: Sauter Porsche Roadster
A Porsche that changed Porsche
Before the Glöcklers, the America Roadster, the Speedster, and the Spyder came the Sauter.
Porsche 911 Carrera
Mobile to San Clemente
This journey began in 1987, covers 2,406 miles, and ended just a few months ago.
