CAYMAN GT4 RS AND CANON RS 5

Porsche’s latest announcement is a 718 Cayman GT4 RS reported to put out 500 hp.

Canon’s latest mirrorless camera is the RS 5. It’s for pros with 45 MP, IBIS, 8K video and 120 fps at 1080…

I’m guessing these will not disappoint. Wow!

STERLING MOSS R.I.P.

Happy Easter. It is with a sad heart that I report Sir Stirling Moss passed away this morning. Considered the greatest racing driver never to win the Formula 1 World Championship, he succumbed to a long-term illness at 90 years of age.

Sterling won just about everything else during his long career – including numerous F1 races, Le Mans, Sebring, Targa Florio, and the Mille Miglia. Amazingly, he won 212 of the 529 races he entered. Godspeed. Continue reading “”

FAST CAR

Tracy Chapman broke the airwaves in April 1988 with this song and others on her self-titled album. Singles from the record, like “Fast Car” and “Baby Can I Hold You” are still relevant today. The CD, or better yet, the record or the elusive 12″ single discs, are audiophile grade music. Check it out. Continue reading “”

BORED? BUILD A 1:3 SCALE PORSCHE 4-CAM MOTOR!

The 4-cam Carrera engine is a technical masterpiece. It propelled Porsche to several race wins in the ’50s and 60s with cars like the 550 Spyder and the 356 Carrera 2. I’ve driven both, and let me tell you these multi-million dollar icons are the real deal.

Now, for $300, you can assemble a 300-piece 1:3 scale working model with a 112-page collector’s book from the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany. No gas needed. It runs on 3 AA batteries.

CAR PHOTOGRAPHY & WRITING IN THE AGE OF COVID

First of all, my heart goes out to all of those who have been impacted by the Covid-19 crisis.

Fortunately, working from home, my writing routine has changed very little. For my photos, I’m working on projects that have been idle for awhile.

Once the “stay at home” order is lifted, I can resume my car photography. All I need is one person to drive the assigned car into position in front of an appropriate background. I can shoot the whole take with a normal and telephoto lens, keeping ten feet from the car and driver at all times. Of course, that doesn’t help the millions of people who are not so fortunate.

THE CONVENIENCE OF TRUTH

A good friend of mine, whom I admire greatly, reminded me of the convenience of truth. It’s a lot easier than embellishing or outright lying. You will never have to remember what you said, because the story you told never has to be changed or corrected. Telling one story that is true is the goal of every professional journalist with integrity. It sure makes my life easier.

@PECLA

This Saturday the SoCal region of R Gruppe will celebrate the life of Cris Huergas at the Porsche Experience Center in Los Angeles. Meet at 8 am at 19800 South Main Street, Carson, CA. See you there.

Sad Update: R.I.P Kobe Bryant, his 13 y.o. daughter and seven others. I was on my way to an automotive photo shoot nearby when their helicopter crashed. My sincere condolences to the families and their friends.

THANKS 000!

It’s great to have my images included again in 000 Magazine. Issue 012 features my coverage of Cameron Healy at the wheel of his 1951 Le Mans class-winning 356 SL #46 on Mulholland Drive. These photos accompany Jeff Zwart’s cover and beauty shots, along with Chris Greenwood’s build photos, to help tell an amazing story. Special thanks go to Pete Stout, Rod Emory, Cameron and the whole crew for making it happen!

CRIS HUERGAS

Intention is everything. When fully met, it involves your whole purpose and being. It requires passion, reasonable thinking, and a commitment to follow through.

When times get tough, I try to remember that no matter what happens, intention will see you through every time. Be confident, look outside the box, leave the herd behind, move forward, and ride. Godspeed.

R.I.P. Cris Huergas, R Gruppe Co-Founder
