Find out how the new turbocharged 991-2 generation Carreras stack up against their older naturally aspirated brethren in Pete Stout’s “2 is the 1.” A totally original 1973.5 911T was resuscitated after 33 years in storage — and just 36,000 miles on the odometer — in “Resurrection,” by David Mathews. Ted West tags along with Riesentöter Region during its second annual food drive, which raised tons of non-perishable donations, in “Phil-a-Frunk!” Read the heart-wrenching story of one man’s pride and joy — his 643-mile 1985 944 — in “Garnet,” by David Mathews. The 2.7-liter 911s of the mid-seventies aren’t loved by everybody, but this example, profiled in “Reality Persists,” by Ted West, has upwards of 235,000 miles and been driven to 14 Parades. Ever wonder about a worthy alternative to the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart? Ronan McGrath has the answer in “Hamburg Automuseum Prototyp.”

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!
