In this issue, Sean Cridland takes us through a key moment in legendary racer Hurley Haywood’s life and career in “Mastery & Misery.” In “Clockwork Orange” by Dave Mathews, learn the story of a European 1968 911S barn find in Texas that has since been restored to what some may call perfection. As part of this year’s Battle of the Builds, Doug Neilson explores a wild track day Boxster project that sports a built 997.1 GT3 RS engine, in “Monster Boxster.” Randy Wells interviews Kevin Jeannette of Gunnar Porsche Racing on what it was like to own 911R #15, in “A Car Tale.” Rob Sass visits the largest indoor car show in Essen, Germany, in “Techno Classica.” If you’ve wondered about the best way to set the timing belt tension on a 944 in your own garage, look no further than “Tensions Run High” by Tom M’Guinness.

Of course, regular Panorama departments Tech Q&A, European Windows, From the Regions, Street Talk, and zwART are all present and accounted for. Enjoy the issue!
