February 2015

In the February 2015 issue, National Policy Chair Bob Gutjahr gives us the Top Ten Reasons Why You Should Not Go To French Lick for Parade 2015 in “Indiana Delight.” Ever wonder about that rusty old 356 that appeared at Werks Reunion 2014 in Monterey? Randy Wells profiles the 1952 pre-A and its owner in “Patina Queen.” The 1968 911L featured in William Edgar’s “Poster Child” was one of a handful of lightweight 911s that were raced in the Trans-Am series, and now it’s driven on the streets of Los Angeles by famed screenwriter and television host Spike Feresten. Former Head of Porsche Motorsport Hartmut Kristen sits down with Kerry Morse to talk about his time there and as its chief in “A Decisive Decade.” In “Forbidden Fruit,” Prescott Kelly explores why many Euro-only Porsche classics from the 1990s are becoming more common in North America, in the process highlighting the 993 Carrera RS and the 993 GT2.

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!
