Porsche drivers appreciate technical excellence, precision, and developing the skills to operate complex machines proficiently, which may explain why our favorite cars are popular among pilots. Read about six of them and their love for Stuttgart’s machines in our feature story, “Pilots and Porsches.” The 4 and 4S iterations of the 992-series 911 are out, and Editor Rob Sass drove them in Valencia, Spain. The title of his article, "Superhero," might indicate how he feels about the car. Gerrit Wistrup paid $500 for a 944, intending to use it as a parts car. Years of labor and love have turned "The $500 Porsche" into a daily driver. About 20,000 miles into his ownership of a used 997, Carl Spencer discovered a major problem. See how he handled it in "Bore Score and Seven Years Ago." Connecticut Valley Region member Todd Pajonas started with track days, and now is a fully committed racer at PCA events, constantly improving and upgrading his cars. Read about what led him down the "Slippery Slope."

All that plus new PCA national appointments, a how-to on epoxying your garage floor, and so much more.
