In this issue, Barry Winfield drives the new four-cylinder 718 Cayman, in "4 Square." The renowned, late Jim Pasha left his 968 to unsuspecting friend Bill Patton, the author of "Pasha's Revenge," who commemorated the water-cooled, front-engined Porsche expert by giving it a wild paint job. In "Pretty Baby" by Ted West, learn the story of the oldest 901 known to be in existence, an early Signal Red prototype. Join John Lamm in "Tales from Treffen," covering the inaugural PCA Treffen North America event in Lake Tahoe, then click here to watch the video.
