In the June 2015 issue, Ted West tells the story of a couple's 2002 911 Turbo — which they owned from new and for more than 557,000 miles — in "The First 557,764 Miles." Kerry Morse interviews Patrick Dempsey and Porsche factory driver Patrick Long about their Dempsey-Proton team's World Endurance Championship efforts leading up to Le Mans in "In Stages." If you like 944s, you'll love the story about this meticulously preserved, tastefully modified 1988 944 Turbo S in "Sterling Silber" by Tom M'Guinness. Porsche guru Bruce Canepa built a 356 "transition car" as seen in "Outlaw" by Doug Neilson, a radical vision of what a 356-911 stopgap model could have been. Kieron Fennelly interviews Bernd Kauhna, a project manager for four generations of 911 — 993, 996, 997, and 991 — in "The 911 Maker."

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!
