VW ELECTRIC CAR SETS NEW RECORD TIME AT PIKES PEAK

Today, Romain Dumas took his Volkswagen I.D. R EV to a new record time of 7:57.148 over 12 miles and 156 curves to 9,000 feet in Colorado. Sebastion Loeb’s previous record at 8:13.878 set in 2013 with a gas powered Peugeot 208 T16 seemed unreachable. Welcome to the age of the electric car that Porsche helped design…

MY BEST FRIEND HAD A BIRTHDAY TODAY

We have shared so many experiences together over the past 40+ years that it’s impossible to put them into words.

From a Who concert in 1971, to a SoCal road trip in 1973, to a New Zealand month-long journey in 1980, to an Acapulco debauchery in 1986, to a yearly get together ever since – you are irreplaceable. Here’s a photo from that CA trip.

MAKING PORSCHE RACING HISTORY IN BAJA

Here’s a look back at the drama and beauty that I experienced in April while following a pair of Porsche 911s – off road down Baja.

Follow me and the Rothsport Racing team from Ensenada to San Jose del Cabo over jumps, river crossings and endless silt beds. The team made Porsche history finishing 1st and 2nd in class after five days of racing – but not without a few incidents!

914/6 GT TRIBUTE

For June, I’ll have a couple of publications. The first will be in PCA Porsche Panorama Magazine.

It had to be orange, of course. Just like virtually every other real 914/6 GT raced by the Porsche factory Werks department. This tribute GT also had to start as a 914/6 to be eligible for racing today. It needed to be heard before it was seen too. Thanks to straight through pipes and no real muffler to speak of, that’s assured. More

WHO ORIGINATED THE LOUVERED 911 REAR DECK LID?

Nobody knows… What we do know is that Rolly Resos sold a muti-louvered Porsche 911 rear decklid that he had picked up at a Pomano Swap meet to a long-haired guy in scruffy clothes at the German Autofest in 2002. That’s how the legend of the “Urban Outlaw” was born…

WHY NO AIRPLAY FOR AIMEE’S FIRST RECORD?

Whatever was the first solo record from Aimee Mann. It was released over 25 years ago this month to little fanfare, although it is arguably one of 1993′s best albums. More

R GRUPPE TREFFEN

Yes, I’ve been to every R Gruppe Treffen – 18 in a row. This year’s event in Buellton, California featured great weather and camaraderie. Having a drone to photograph stills and video ensured it was even more special. Thanks to all my friends for a wonderful time.

MAY 911R GOODNESS

No, it wasn’t an April fool’s joke. This month’s Panormama Magazine features my interview with Kevin Jeannette and his purchase of Porsche’s 911R #15 for $9500. Check it out. It’s hilarious.

THANKS TO THE ROTHSPORT RACING TEAM

Last year I was given the opportunity to photograph and write a feature article and short film on two Rothsport Racing Porsche 911s, both of which finished the 2017 NORRA Mexican 1000 off-road race. More
