In this issue, Basem Wasef drives a 968, a 993 Carrera, and a 986 Boxster S in "The Last of the Analog Porsches," which is accompanied by a video — click here to watch it. The Porsche 908 never achieved the popularity or success of some of the automaker's earlier race cars or the 917 that came after, but it did play a crucial role in the company's motorsports efforts, as you'll find out in "The Middle Car" by Bill Oursler. Rob Sass drives Porsche's newest SUV in "First Drive: 2019 Cayenne." In "The Awakening" by Randy Wells, a member who owns three desirable 911s finally made the jump to a collectible 1983 944 with just 3,700 miles. In "Bulletproof" by David Mathews, learn how one member's Speedster, once looking a bit like Swiss cheese, has provided him nearly five decades of driving enjoyment on both road and track. Rob Sass examines where value is to be had in the current Porsche market in "The Bottom of the Curve."

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!
