The keys to success in racing are preparation and practice. Or you could be Bill and Don Whittington, who picked up a used 934 race car in 1978, took some driving classes, and entered the Sebring 12 Hours in their “Second-Hand Rose.” Many of us have pondered which 911 generation produced the best GT RS. Fortunately, with the help of member Sri Iyengar, Panorama was able to spend time in four special cars — the 997- and 991-generation GT2 RS, plus the 997 GT3 RS 4.0 and the 991 GT3 RS — to find out which is “The Best of the Best.” Be sure to watch the video comparing the 997 and 991 GT2 RSs. In these uncertain times, relatively traffic-free mountain roads bring real joy. What better time and place to do a first drive of the 2021 911 Turbo S, truly a “Blue Chip Talent.” Longtime Porsche racer Jerry Peters had a vision of a car encompassing elements of both the 356 and the 901. Working with a custom shop, he built a beautiful “Double Bubble” Outlaw.
