The casual reader might take the words and photos in Panorama for granted, but getting the story right is a meticulous process. This month contributor Randy Wells uses a photo shoot on an outlaw 356 to explain some of the secrets of automotive photography in “Picture Perfect." Purists live to decry change, calling the 911 too radical a departure from the 356 or the 914 nothing but a VW. So when Porsche introduced the blasphemous water-cooled 996 in 1999, there were legions of critics. But we say “Huzzah to the Haters,” celebrating several PCAers who love their 996s. Continuing on a theme, we next take a look at the 912E and 924, which despite being entry-level four-cylinders appeal to those seeking “Simple Pleasures.” Next, Ezekiel Wheeler explores how to go about modifying an E1 Cayenne Turbo for serious boulder-bashing off-roading in “Going Off.” 

All that, plus a look at next year’s Parade in French Lick, Indiana, and the thrilling conclusion of “The Spy Collector.”
