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!
Porsche Club of America has been very good to me over the years. This month, their national magazine, Panorama, has honored me with a short bio and multi-page essay featuring my photographs made at the 2021 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. There, I photographed a very rare gathering of Porsche 917 race cars, partnering with writer Jay Gillotti, who did a great job telling the story of these magnificent icons. Thanks again for their support at the Pano editorial staff – Vu Nguyen, Rob Sass, Amy Skogstrom, Emma Smith, Doug Lloyd, Allen Lane and Richard Baron!
Word is Porsche and Audi are planning to join Formula 1 in 2026. Working in F1 as powertrain suppliers, Porsche is considering working in conjunction with Red Bull Racing, and Audi could be supplying McLaren. It’s all dependent on how parent company Volkswagen decides to allocate development costs across its racing teams. The last time Porsche was in F1 was with the MP4/2C TAG engine in a McLaren during the ’80s.
AMAZING DRONE WORK AND EDITING IN THIS PORSCHE VIDEO
This is what’s possible in car videos today. This ad pushes the limits above and beyond – in the field and behind the computer. Amazing stuff.
VIC ELFORD R.I.P.
One of the greatest Porsche drivers in history passed away today.
He was also one of the nicest people you would ever want to meet. He always took my questions without complaint, and was as humble as humanely possible considering all his accomplishments in motor racing.
Fans will always remember Vic’s rally victories at Monte Carlo in a 911 and his brave win in a Porsche 907 at the Targa Florio in 1968, where he came from far behind in the last laps to pass the lead Ferrari.
Singer has done it again. Here’s a first glimpse at their new car inspired by the original Porsche 930. It’s a 450-plus-horsepower, carbon-fiber-bodied redefinition of an ’80s classic that can be specced with all sorts of refinements, including AWD.
Power comes from a modified a 3.8L block based on a Hans Mezger-designed air-cooled flat-six. Twin turbochargers with electronically actuated waste gates and bespoke air-to-water intercoolers mounted inside the intake manifolds provide the forced cool air necessary to achieve this kind of power.

THE PORSCHE CAYENNE TURBO GT
A Porsche Cayenne in one form or another has been my camera car for the past dozen years.
Here’s a new one for 2022 that Porsche describes as, “An SUV to the eye and a race car beneath the hood.” Continue reading “”
THE MULE IN PANO!
The Porsche 916 is a rare beast. Only a dozen were built in the early ’70s. Based on a 914-6, a test mule for the 916 (pictured above) was recently featured in PCA’s Panorama Magazine using Peter Linsky’s article and my photos made in Florida earlier this year. Here’s a part of my sidebar that explains this car and the 916: Continue reading “”
Here’s another perfectly shaped car. The Porsche Carrera GT (Project Code 980) manufactured between 2004–2007.
I’ve actually driven one, along with the 1958 356 Carrera GT Speedster below, and a few other landmark Carreras, thanks to the insistence of the owners. I think I can go to heaven now.
Porsche’s beautifully shaped Mission R concept car could be the all-electric future of racing. This battery powered race car could also be the basis of an all-electric 718 Cayman for the street.
The Summer 2021 issue of 000 Magazine tells a story of the “Surface” material used on the 1968 Porsche 911S. My images illustrate the unique “Buffalo Hide” treatment used on the interior of this special Euro model. Yes, it’s esoteric and a deep dive. And that’s just what 000 wants. Continue reading as you can…
The super rare Porsche color of Moonstone (light Lilac) appears in PCA’s Panorama Magazine for the first time with a feature using my photos and text in the July issue.
A 924 and 911 in the obtuse shade of Moonstone is a special treat to see (only a dozen were made in 1979-1980). I’ll probably never see another Porsche in this color again. Thanks to Justin Roeser for the opportunity to shoot his two cars together.
THANKS TO PORSCHE EARLY 911 CAR OWNER JEFF BERKES AND BUILDER SCOTT LONGBALLA
A cover and a feature full of photos in the latest summer issue of the Early 911S Registry’s magazine ESSES is a welcome gift. Thanks to everyone for helping to make this happen. Continue reading “”
THANK YOU PORSCHE 356 REGISTRY MAGAZINE
Thanks to editor Peter Bodensteiner for my new cover photo and inside feature with Larry Markham’s 1959 356 Sunroof Coupe. The Porsche 356 Registry Magazine has become one my favorites to submit to lately. They are professional, responsive, and pay fairly and on time. Everything a photojournalist contributor could ask for!
Thanks to PCA’s Panorama Magazine for publishing my Porsche 935 story on the cover and over 13 pages inside their April 2021 issue.
Thanks also to the 1977 Mecarrillos 935’s restoration team (Gunnar Racing), Kevin Jeannette and Sharon Jeannette, for offering me a pit pass to RR VI. More thanks to driver Rod Emory and the Meccarillos 935 owner for their trust in me to present the story accurately. Continue reading “”
