From the Editor…
In this issue, I am proud to say that we have features on two of the most important Porsches in existence. Our cover star is the oldest surviving 911 – or strictly speaking, 901 – in the form of the seventh prototype built way back in 1963. ‘Barbarossa’, as it was called by the development team, is a unique piece of history – the more you look at it in detail, the more you see how much it differs from future production 911s. Truly fascinating.
The second piece of Porsche history is the 1951 Le Mans class-winning 356SL (above), now owned by Cameron Healy. This incredible car has had a full and varied life, spending most of it as a roadster on the tracks of California before passing into the hands of a dedicated enthusiast and racer who was determined it should be restored back to original. And for that task he turned to Rod Emory, better known in some circles for his amazing ‘Outlaw’ 356s. Together Emory and Healy are responsible for preserving the car that was the first Porsche ever to be raced at Le Mans – we called the feature ‘The first of many’, and it indeed was, winning its class and setting in motion an unstoppable force that would change the shape of endurance racing for ever. I hope you enjoy reading about these two cars as much as we enjoyed featuring them…
