This issue’s cover features an original painting by Nicolas Hunziker, which was commissioned to celebrate a very big year in Porsche racing history as well as a defining year for the 911. Inside, you’ll find Bob Chapman’s story on a 4.2-liter Cayman S—our first look at serious hot-rodding with Porsche’s new-generation 9A1 flat six. Senior Editor Bill Oursler ably handles a profile on Derrick Walker, the team manager behind the Falken GT3 RSR’s unexpected win at Petit Le Mans and a man with Porsche ties going back to Indy and the late Al Holbert.

Randy Wells introduces us to a PCA member who still enjoys driving his beautiful early 911S on the street, proving there is life after many years of PCA and SCCA racing. Peter Linsky tells us the story of a 1958 356 Speedster that lived a hard life as a track-worthy daily driver before its concours restoration. Finally, Ada Lee Halofsky checks out what may be the world’s best 1974 914 1.8—a Porsche so clean and original that its owner was literally clubbed with a checkbook at last summer’s Porsche Parade. He didn’t sell.

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!
