They say there’s more than one way to skin a cat, although as a cat lover, I’m not sure I wish to put that to the test. However, when the opportunity arose to bring together three different takes on the convertible 356 theme, we jumped at it. So, courtesy of Mick Pacey at Export 56, we were able to gather together a Speedster, a Roadster and a Cabriolet. You can read Kieron Fennelly’s impressions starting on page 8 of this issue. Cat lovers can rest assured, however, no felines were harmed in the making of this feature.

Turn to page 28 and you can find out what it’s like to be behind the wheel of one of Porsche’s most versatile competition cars, the mighty 934. Owner Johan Dirickx kindly allowed Johnny Tipler to put the pedal to the metal, with the day captured on film (or should that be pixels) by Antony Fraser.
If ever proof was needed of the growing popularity of classic Porsches – notably those with real history – then you need look no further than the incredible Rennsport Collective show at Donington Hall, which took place in July. Hopefully this will become an annual – or at the very least bi-annual – event, for you’d be hard pressed to see a more impressive collection of cars at another one-day show. Roll on 2020 is all we can say…
