711

In this issue, Pete Stout evaluates the 718 Boxster and Boxster S and the virtues of their new flat fours in “Fast Four.” In “Duel at Daytona,” Randy Wells recounts the story of a Vasek Polak-owned, Davey Jordan-driven ’68 911S that was raced by Polak's team just once. Stout interviews PCNA President and CEO Klaus Zellmer, the man behind the look of Porsche’s dealerships and its Leipzig factory/“experience center,” in “New Arrival.” Read about the 944 Turbo Cup that visited Porsche Parade last year in “One Led to Another,” by David Mathews. “Lanu,” by David Mathews, is the title of this issue’s last feature article, but also the name of a Tablot Yellow 912E that’s remained in PCA’s Chesapeake Region since new.

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!
