In this issue, you’ll find noted Porsche expert Randy Leffingwell’s story on the 991 Turbo and Turbo S—which uses pioneering technology to make it the fastest Porsche over the road yet. Ken Gross checks out the 16-cylinder 917 engine, the largest Porsche powerplant ever built and an exploration in the quest to utterly dominate Can-Am racing. Valerie Roedenbeck Maloof spends time with Grand-Am and ALMS star driver Leh Keen and the factory-built 993 race car he got his start in—with PCA Club Racing. Peter Falk, the famous Porsche engineer, pens an exclusive article on the development of the 911 for Panorama’s ongoing series celebrating the iconic Porsche’s 50th anniversary. And, finally, funnyman Ted West gets the last word with his look at a 986 Boxster S that has been rebodied as … a Karmann Ghia Convertible — and quite well, in fact. 

Of course, regular Panorama departments Art & Canvas, European Windows, Junior Driver, From the Regions, Street Talk, Tech Q&A, and zwART are all present and accounted for. We hope you’ll enjoy the issue!
