From the Editor…
We have something of a mixed bag in this issue of the magazine, a reflection, I believe, of the diverse nature of the classic Porsche world. There’s everything from a brace of hotrodded 911s, to a Carrera Panamericana class-winning 356, a supercharged Pre-A coupé, beautifully restored soft-window Targa and the amazing Gruppe B prototype from the wizards at Stuttgart: we’ve got them all covered – plus, of course, plenty more besides.
A REFLECTION OF THE DIVERSE NATURE OF THE CLASSIC PORSCHE WORLD…
It’s impossible for me to choose a favourite from among them, although I do have to admit to being drawn back to Ryan Hoegner’s 911SC which graces the cover. It began life as that mythical beast, the ‘barn find’, and has been turned into what must rank as one of the most highly-detailed projects of all time. Just check out the interior if you need confirmation of that.
There again, who can resist Øystein Asphjell’s beautiful supercharged Pre-A coupé, all the way from Norway? Or Rob Curry’s battle-scarred ‘La Carrera’ racer? There are no better examples to illustrate the longevity of classic Porsches. And then there’s the technological masterwork that was the Gruppe B project – polar opposite to the 356s, maybe, but still a classic in every way. Old Porsches – don’t you just love ’em?
