From the Editor…
It was as I was compiling the Contents page that it struck me how white (or pale cream) seems so popular in the classic Porsche world
There was a time back in the late 1990s and early 2000s when one of the least expensive Porsches you could buy would probably have been an impact-bumper 911 Targa in Grand Prix White. The same car in Guards (India) Red or black would sell without a problem, but white? No thanks, said the market. How times have changed… I’ve lost count of the number of early 911s I’ve seen for sale that left the factory in Light Ivory but then underwent a respray in the 1980s to red, black or silver – the colours of choice at the time. Nobody wanted a white or cream-coloured Porsche back then, and yet here we are in 2017 with no fewer than three in this very issue, along with a pale cream infiltrator in the form of a Goliath. How times have changed… Ah yes, the Goliath. We hope you don’t mind seeing a non-Porsche in this magazine, but it really is a fascinating vehicle, and in its day a potential rival to the 356. It even looks like one from the side! With a transverse engine in the front, driving the front wheels, it was very advanced for its day, but proved to be no match for the 356. All we can say is thank heavens for that…
