This month, Porsche Panorama proudly celebrates its 750th issue with a special 30-page section featuring every single cover and reflections about the magazine from its founding in December 1955 to the present in "Panorama @750: Celebrating a Milestone." Click here to watch a video that flips through all the covers as well. Elsewhere, we talk about how the turbocharged 991.2 is easier and cheaper than ever to tweak for higher output. Read about one example, the 911 GTS known as “Big Bird.” Carole Johnson is not one to take the conventional route, eschewing math for computer progamming in its nascence, and later ordering a paint-to-sample 1978 911 SC that she held on to for more than 40 years. Follow her story in “Stereotypes Smashed.” As we continue to celebrate 50 years of the 917, Sean Cridland takes a look back at 917-001, which after a somewhat convoluted history has been fully restored in “Back to Form.” 

All that plus a few words from PCA president Tom Gorsuch (page 10) and the latest Porsche news and racing results.
