In this issue, Tom M’Guinness interviews PCA National Historian RJ Wilmoth about the history of the club in “Roots: PCA at 60.” Pete Stout introduces us to Felix, the 19-year-old son of Dr. Wolfgang Porsche who attended his first Porsche Parade this year, in “The Natural.” Five members who won the chance to purchase the 911 GTS Club Coupe took a special European delivery of their cars, as told by John D’Angelo in “On Winning.” Want to drive your Porsche how it was meant to be driven? Read Randy Wells’ guide to autocross in “PCA Autocross 101.” The first generation of water-cooled 911s lives in the shadows of those that came before it and after, but longtime Porsche enthusiast Alex Llorente tells us why he loves his 996 in “Dissenting Opinion,” by David Mathews. Professional racer Leh Keen’s personal 911 SC has been modified to go just about anywhere, as you’ll find out in “Safari 911” by Tom M’Guinness. Then when you’re done reading (or before), check out this video of Keen sliding it through gravel and fording creeks in the first ever Panorama exclusive video. In “The 924 That Never Ran,” read about Porsche’s attempt to build a car that could go 160 miles per hour for 24 hours straight.

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!
