THE NEW PORSCHE 911 DAKAR
“The 911 is the only car that you can drive from an African safari to Le Mans, then to the theatre and onto the streets of New York.”
Imagine a brand new 911 with a rally design package, three inches extra ground clearance, a stainless steel engine guard, a GT3 motor, rally electronic mode and carbon fiber race seats in the cabin, knobby tires and mud flaps, all in a Rothmans livery. Sahara desert here we come!

THE LOS ANGELES PETERSEN MUSEUM “WE ARE PORSCHE” EXHIBIT
“The Petersen Automotive Museum is known for hosting some of the most impressive exhibitions celebrating the automobile. The museum will once again host a new exhibition, called ‘We are Porsche,’ officially opening to the public April 16. For those who want an extra special experience, they should look into booking a spot on April 15, the opening preview day.
The exhibit features 40 Porsche spanning all eras since the 1950s that tell the story of Porsche progression from boutique sports car manufacturer to powerhouse automaker. From Porsche 904 to 907, 356 to 986, new and old 935s, and so much more, it’s worth checking out ‘We Are Porsche’ whether on opening day after.”
Top Gun: Maverick is firing on all cylinders. Oscar time baby!
IF YOU’RE THE SMARTEST PERSON IN THE ROOM, IT’S TIME TO FIND A NEW ROOM
2023 could be that new room.
One can always improve. You might need to expand your horizons however.
Fifty years ago Porsche’s 917 race car was a departure from what had come before. So was the Rega turntable. It was the result of thinking outside the box. In the short tail configuration with Gulf livery the 917 was unbeatable, so it was eventually outlawed, of course. But it was something else in the early ’70s wasn’t it?
The photograph I made above is also something else. Has it been done before? I’ve never seen it. However, what really matters is that it is something new for me.
Thank you to Deb Pollack and all at Vicarious Magazine for publishing my photos of a Porsche 911 reimagined by Singer Vehicle Design. This blue beauty happens to belong to the co-founder of Taylor Guitars, Kurt Listug, a very nice gentleman to work with.
Thanks again to the Panorama Magazine team at PCA for featuring my writing and photography work in the December 2022 issue. Robert Rathe’s super-rare 1958 Carrera GT Speedster is a gem. Probably my favorite Porsche ever! A great owner and a superb example. It just doesn’t get any better than this.
Thanks to Harvey Kanter and the crew at Porsche 356 Registry Magazine for the assigned writing and photography feature on a beautiful Silver 356 B Special Sunroof coupe completed by John Willhoit Auto Restoration of Long Beach, CA. One of the nicest examples I’ve photographed and written about.
Harvey, congrats for you and your car being published in the Winter 2022 issue of the Porsche 356 Registry magazine!
A Carrera GT Speedster built by Porsche in the 1950s is still one of my faves. I’ve been given the opportunity to photograph and write about another of these rare hot rods for a feature, and it will be coming out soon. Here’s the opening spread of the last one I photographed back in 2012. Love this stuff!
NEW COVER THIS MONTH
Everyone knows Porsche is my favorite marque. So, it’s with much pleasure that I announce my latest September 2022 cover for the Porsche Club of America’s national magazine Panorama. It’s about the people with this club. That’s why I love working with them so much.
Austin Urfer and his father decided to buy a 944 Turbo together. “All in the Family” is my September 2022 cover feature, where they share their journey together, with a bit of my personal journalistic slant added in. Enjoy this PCA “Youth Issue”, lots of good stuff!
Carol Madonna of Southern California is the proud owner of this 356B Super 90 in metallic blue, a color that matches the nearby Pacific Ocean perfectly. Her independent nature is encouraging to see as she frequently tours to Porsche club events solo and with friends. Congrats for being published in the latest issue of the Porsche 356 Registry magazine with your cool car! It was a joy to photograph and write about you!
Gary Emory and his son Rod represent the best of modern day Porsche fabricators. Their 356 outlaws are legendary. I’ve known them both for over 20 years. They are the real deal and continue to contribute to the Porsche 356 hot rod community every day as they have for decades.
Gary’s original vision and Rod’s hands-on artistry have produced hundreds of iconic renditions of the cars many of us love.
Check out my in-depth feature on Gary and the family in the latest PCA Panorama Magazine.
Congrats to all the Porsche drivers and teams for your great success!
STILL ONE OF MY FAVORITE STORIES
Jeff Zwart is a long time hero of mine who has never let anyone down with his fabulous work – photographing, speaking, and filmmaking.
Whoever he associates himself with is blessed. I feel lucky to be his friend.
Happy Birthday Jeff!
BRING A TRAILER
I’ve been working with clients directly to photograph and film their car for sale on BAT. The results have been remarkably well received by everyone, and it’s provided me with another outlet for short videos that provide engaging content and another way to tell a story. Look for my most recent work on this blog journal soon!
