Porsche just announced an entry-level electric Taycan.
The 2021 rear-wheel drive entry-level Taycan will start at $79,900. With 402 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of instant torque, it’ll hit 60 mph in 5.6 seconds. The range of travel without charging is still only 200-300 miles, but it’s getting there.

HAPPY NEW YEAR
Most of us probably would like to forget about last year and might even want to skip this year…
Here’s a tribute I created for the late Notorious R.B.G. near my home. Hope this cheers you up a little.
(This series consists of macro images I made of a 1973 Porsche Carrera RS Safari #19 1:43 scale model on my front steps. The real car competed in the 1974 East African Rally. My full feature of that 911 can seen in the January 2017 issue of PCA Panorama Magazine)
My dream car – a 1971 Porsche 911ST known as “Sloopy Jr”.
It’s a sincere honor to be awarded a cover feature in Porsche Club of America’s national magazine, Panorama.
In the December 2020 issue of Panorama Magazine, there’s a 16-page story of mine that goes behind the scenes for a photoshoot of the Emory Motorsport’s AWD “AllRad” 356 Outlaw.
In this article, I explain what goes into all my professional photo sessions. Photo tips are listed, some secrets are revealed, and a lot of fun ensues when Rod Emory coasts down a pre-planned route without a working engine!
Thanks to Rob Sass, Amy Skogstrom, Richard Baron, Vu Nguyen, Allen Lane, Doug Lloyd, and Emma Smith at the PCA!
As a full-time pro for over 30 years, the gear I take on assignment today depends on what is needed. Contrary to what it might look like, I prefer to work with the minimum amount of equipment. Continue reading “”
MORE PORSCHE PUBLICATIONS
The Fall 2020 issue of 000 Magazine tells a story about the original material used on the outside of the Porsche 914 roof. My images illustrate the unique textures used in the early ’70s. Yes, it’s esoteric and a bit complicated. Continue reading “”
THE PIONEER – ROTHSPORT RACING & PCA
No one knows for sure when Porsche’s 1995 3.8-liter air cooled motor was first transplanted into a pre-1974 early 911.
What we do know is that in late 1999 Jeff Gamroth of Rothsport Racing in Oregon started thinking about constructing a long hood 911 using the most powerful normally aspirated air-cooled flat six available from Porsche.
First you need to establish your goals. Does income from photography matter to you? If not, then join the millions of other people with the same avocation. Continue reading “”
CANDYCE’S 1973 PORSCHE 911S
A big thank you to everyone at PCA’s Panorama Magazine for publishing my story about a woman who carried on her husband’s legacy.
This month’s issue features my images and words about a 1973 911S in Sepia Brown that has won countless concours since Candyce Jones inherited it from her late husband. The image above was photographed with Candyce at the wheel while attending PCA Parade in Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri. This is a great story for many reasons. Continue reading “”
PORSCHE WINS CLASS – JUST MISSES OVERALL VICTORY AT PIKES PEAK
David Donner in his 000 Magazine sponsored Porsche GT2 RS Clubsport took the Time Attack 1 class victory at Pikes Peak this weekend. His overall time of 9:36.559 was just 1.1 seconds away from the overall win. Continue reading “”
A simple car shoot video rig is ideally compact, lightweight, and easy to use. It’s also hopefully not too expensive. After all, it’s your vision and message that will determine the success of any film more than anything else.
Whatever rig you choose, you don’t really want to compromise much on quality – for the camera, the lens, monitor or the audio mic. Continue reading “”
There are very few awards out there for automotive magazine and book designers. If there were more, Richard Baron would have a wall full of trophies and plaques. Continue reading “”
