“One of those times when all the stars seemed to be aligned…”
It’s been a real pleasure putting this issue together – not that I don’t enjoy compiling every issue, of course – but it was one of those times when all the stars seemed to be aligned. First of all, there’s the story of the two Tour de France 911s restored by Historika, with Rémi Dargenen’s wonderful photos capturing these two very special cars for posterity on the day that legendary driver Gérard Larrousse was reunited with his former TdF entry, the ultimate lightweight 911. Then we have the story of the very first Porsche to bear the Carrera name – a 1955 Pre-A 356 (see above), that spent much of its life incognito, with only a request to the factory for a copy of the Kardex throwing up its true identity. It’s an amazing car in every sense. Follow that with a piece on the only Paris-Dakar 953 in private hands, a photo shoot on the Porsche Museum’s own Le Mans homage 917, and a Pre-A 356 Cabrio, and you can see why I enjoyed putting this issue together. I’m often asked how we can find enough material to fill a magazine on a regular basis and my answer is always the same: Porsche has such a rich and varied history stretching back over so many years, and so many great cars are being restored, there will never be a shortage of material…
