We’re on the 4th installment of “Old Guy Looking At Old Porsche Magazines”. What can I say…I don’t get out much. If you want to see the first three posts, you can read them here: Memory Lane #1, Memory Lane #2 and Memory Lane #3.
This week’s magazine is one of the few that made it past the great magazine purge a few years ago. I received this issue when we lived in Germany, so it got a bit beat up en route. I’ve also thumbed through it quite a few times, so it’s showing some wear.
There are 3 things I love about this magazine cover:
- The 911 Turbo shown on the front. I love the big whale tail and flared fenders. The backend view of these old Turbos is my favorite shot.
- The current 911 Turbo set against an old 911 in the background. The old verses new is a killer contrast and a great reminder of the heritage of the 911 line.
- The 30th anniversary title for the 911. Celebrating 30 years for any particular line is a huge feat, much less an “exotic” sports car like the Porsche 911.
This issue has several interesting Porsche related articles:
