From the Editor…
We have a real mixed bag for you this time around, everything from a gorgeous 2.4-litre 911S (our cover star) and a RHD 356A Cabriolet, to a very nice 912 ‘driver’ and a unique coachbuilt coupé built by students in the early 1960s. But that’s not all, for we have had access to the original photographs (and text) from a German magazine’s photoshoot of the almost mythical Count Rossi Porsche 917.
“PORSCHES – THEY REALLY ARE SPECIAL, AREN’T THEY?…”
Seeing the original images of this car on the street back in the ’70s brought a smile to our faces. Can you imagine driving across Germany and France, into the heart of Paris in a 917? It’s no wonder the border guards (remember them?) were so keen to check the paperwork and give the vehicle a once-over…
We’re delighted to include a free double-sided poster with this issue – another opportunity for us to say thanks for your support. On the one side is the legendary ‘Moby Dick’ Porsche 935/78, on the other the car that started it all back in 1948: chassis number 356.001. There’s a feature in this issue on Moby Dick and its little brother, the famous ‘Baby’ 935 – that’s a great story. Who other than Porsche would build a car specifically for one event to gain TV coverage, and then retire it for ever? Porsches – they really are special, aren’t they?
