Porsche owners are a passionate lot who know what they want. Not prepared to wait for the RS 2.7 in 1972, a German entrepreneur ordered a custom 1972 911S 2.6, the only one of its kind, proving that sometimes “Impatience is a Virtue.” The Porsche Classic Center in Oslo, Norway also caters to those who know what they want with a very special retro-build called the Sooner that we got to drive in "The Sooner the Better." Engineer Jim Earlbeck so appreciates the focused purpose of his 987 Porsche Boxster Spyder, it’s almost as if they are “Soul Mates.” Bob and Cam Ingram are mainstays on the concours circuit, but tragedy struck when an explosion destroyed many of their classic cars. Undeterred, they raced to restore a 1961 Carrera Abarth GTL (watch the Road Scholars video here), because “Pebble Can’t Wait.” One of the bright spots on the annual calendar is Werks Reunion, and we went “Back to Werks” for the 10th anniversary, and a celebration of the 914.

All that plus more intrigue in “The Spy Collector”, and a remembrance of Sir Stirling Moss.
