In this issue, writer Michael Harley travels to Weissach to learn more about Porsche’s next release, the Macan SUV, based on an already-familiar Audi platform but described as a “five-passenger sports car.” Our question: Is it worthy of the Porsche crest? In "Shades of 1978," hard-driving engineer and PCA member Pete von Behrens explores how PDK and other performance-enhancing technologies fit into sports cars meant to excite and inspire drivers. William Edgar introduces us to Ruth Levy, a driver of indomitable spirit, and shares the story of her successful career in the male-dominated world of racing Spyders and Speedsters in the 1950s. In "Life Changer," Zachary Mayne meets a PCA member and musician who traded a Gibson Les Paul Jr. guitar for a vintage 914 at the age of 20, and has transformed his passion for car restoration into a thriving business. Finally, prices have been rising steadily in the Four-Cam 356 market for years, but values have rocketed recently.  Find out why, with an expert, in-depth analysis from Prescott Kelly.

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!
