In this issue, learn what it feels like to drive six contemporary 911s back to back, from the standard Carrera to the fastest RSR race car in Michael Harley’s “The Whole Enchilada.” In Preston Lerner’s “The Family RSR,” Mark Hotchkis races this 1973 911 RSR at Rennsport Reunion V nearly four decades after his father John raced it at Le Mans. Ever wonder what goes into a casual episode of Jerry Seinfeld’s show Comedians in Cars Getting CoffeePanorama finds out behind the scenes, in Sean Cridland’s “Behind the Coffee.” Porsche builds a long-wheelbase Panamera, but the distance between this particular race car's axles is four inches longer than normal for a different reason, as you’ll see in Bill Oursler’s “RS 61L: The mysterious spyder.” "Clear bra" film and other car wrap technology has advanced greatly in the past couple of decades, so read Doug Neilson’s “Film at Eleven” for the information you should know before wrapping your Porsche in the protective stuff.

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!
