September 2014

This month we bring you comprehensive Parade coverage from this year’s event in Monterey, California. Parade 2014 was a resounding success, with an incredible 2,400 attendees in 1,200 Porsches. Be sure to check out our results section, expanded by popular request from last year’s coverage! In Changing of the Guard, Pete Von Behrens meets a determined Cayman S owner who goes to extraordinary lengths to snatch Top Time of Day at the Parade Autocross. Mel Shapiro describes a lifetime of passion for Porsches and the immaculate restoration of his own Speeder in One More Speedster for the Show. In Ludwig the Loud, Dan Proudfoot examines who really won 1977's Trans-Am series, as the legendary Ludwig Heimrath took his battle with Peter Gregg off the race track and into the FIA courtroom. And finally in Heart, 996 Turbo PCA stalwart Fred Veitch masters Pikes Peak in his third and final effort in the renowned Race to the Clouds.

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