In the pantheon of automotive competition, there are a few legendary venues, such as the Nürburgring, the Monaco GP, the Paris-Dakar Rally, and Le Mans. And then there’s Pikes Peak: 12.42 miles and 156 corners, climbing 4,720 feet. Check out “Battle of the Titans,” our look at three 700-hp Porsches that challenged the mountain this year. Also in this issue is the story of Frank Amoroso, who knew he wanted a Porsche when he was 16. “The Hunt” is the story of how his long search paid off with an M491 turbo-look 911. Editor Sass went to the Porsche Ice Experience in Finland, and found driving on ice to be an invaluable way to learn car control in “Slip ’n Slide.” Tom Linder sticks with things, with a long career at the postal service and a 40-year relationship with his 1973 914. It’s all “A Matter of Commitment.” 2020 has been a challenge, but PCA rose above with a “Top-Notch Treffen.”

We also look back at Le Mans in the time of coronavirus, and forward to Porsche’s electric future.
