Porsche Club of America


©2016 Porsche Cars North America, Inc. Porsche recommends seat belt usage and observance of all traffic laws at all times.

The everyday act of blowing your mind.

The Cayman never ceases to amaze, time and time again. Its power is derived from a 2.7-liter flat-six engine

with direct fuel injection. Combined with PDK, it produces a 0-60mph time of 5.3 seconds and a top track

speed of 164mph. It's as surprising the thousandth time as it was the first. A visceral, sporty driving

experience that you can expect across all models. Which is why for Porsche owners, there is no substitute.

The Cayman. Forever amazing.

Shifting Gears: 2016 Promises to be a Busy Year

By Jim Falgout, Region President

By now you have heard Happy

New Year a few times. The volunteers of your club have

been hard at work to contribute to that goal. There

are several activities being planned or developed to enhance

your experience with your Porsche. I have been

in other organizations and other car clubs. I have never

seen one to offer so many varied opportunities as the

Maverick Region.

First, of course, is the All Member Party on January

23, 2016, at the Hackberry Creek Country Club. We

have reserved parking for our Porsches (more than last

year). There will be food and beverages and a cash bar.

But most of all it is a great opportunity to meet other

Porsche owners and to find out more information of

our various activities.

For those who want to participate in Driver’s Education

Events, those will start in February and continue

in April and May. We take a break for the summer heat

and start up again in September. However, one idea that

our DE chairman, Chris Tabor, wants to bring forward

is having a four-hour DE (similar to the SCCA Track

Night in America) in the evening during the summer

months. Stay tuned to see if that comes to fruition.

Another exciting event is Club Race. We have two

opportunities for Club Racers to compete and for our

members to volunteer. We are again co-sponsoring

a Club Race and Solo DE at Circuit of the Americas

(COTA) in Austin. The event is scheduled for May 6, 7,

and 8, 2016. If you have never been to COTA, this would

be a great time to experience that excellent track.

In addition, we have several Sunday/Saturday Drives

and a Rally or two in the planning. As you can see, we

offer many ways to enjoy your Porsche.

We have a variety of social events including lunch at

three locations most months. Our monthly after hours

social will resume in February. Stephanie Ho always does

a great job setting those up and arranging for discounts

for us. We are presently brainstorming about Founders’

Day which we have in November. If you have any ideas,

something you liked or did not like, or something else

you would like to see us include in Founders’ Day, please

let me or Tracy Robertson, our chairperson, know.

If you like to show your Porsche, there will be opportunities

for that, also. We hope to again have May at

Mayo’s, so stay tuned about that one. We will definitely

have a show within a show in June at Autos in the Park at

the Cooper Aerobic Center. This is a great venue, with

lots of trees and grass, so you are not baking in the sun

on a concrete surface.

To help provide support for these events, a

new chair position has been created. We now have a

chairman of volunteers. Jim Gallegos has taken on

that role. So if you would like to help but are not sure

where you are needed, you can contact

Jim at volunteers@mavpca.org and he

can connect you with the committee that

could use your talents. As I always say,

YOUR CLUB NEEDS YOU! Volunteer;

you will be glad you did.

Mav of the Month

It never ceases to amaze me that when we need someone

to fill a position, someone steps up. In this case

this individual not only took on a very important and

demanding role, he also started some other activities.

First, he took on the laborious role of editor of this newsletter,

Slipstream. He also

started a Twitter account

for our club and frequently

posts on Facebook. Finally,

he produced a 2016 club

calendar using images from

our photo contest that will

be available for purchase at

the All Member Party.

Our Mav of the Month is

Jim Hirsch. Thank you Jim

for your excellent contributions

to the success of our

club.

Gimme a Minute: December Board Meeting

By Wendy Shoffit, Region Secretary December 2, 2015

The meeting began at

7:01 pm. President Jim Falgout

announced that Jim Gallegos has

stepped up to be the Volunteer

Chair. Reporting for absent Stephanie

Ho, the November monthly dinner

social was very successful at the

Hilton Garden Inn, with nearly 120

in attendance. He and Tracy Robertson

are looking at Founders’ Day

plans for next year.

Co-Editor Carey Spreen commented

that he likes the Slipstream

changes that have been made and is

continuing to work to get articles in.

Social Chair Tracy Robertson reported

that Founders’ Day this year

was lightly attended. She is working

to make both big and small changes

to improve attendance. Fortunately

because of the Autobahn sponsorship,

the club did not lose money.

There were a few silent items left to

bid on for charity, and she is working

on creative solutions for those.

The All Member Party is set for

Saturday, Jan 23. Activity Chairs will

have increased time to address the

crowd, and she wants “stations” for

each event. Lastly, she’s working on

a giveaway to participants.

Sunday Drive Chair Tom Martin

reported that Co-Chair Neill Flood

had to step down because of personal

commitments. Tom has the

2016 drive schedule set, including

the Mitas Hill Winery in McKinney,

annual East Texas Tour, and more.

He purchased a portable sound

system to help with drivers’ meetings

and offered it to use at other

events. Thinking the club could use

another one to help with logistics,

Joe McGlohen made a motion to

purchase a second identical setup.

Tracy Robertson seconded. Motion

passed.

Safety Chair Joe McGlohen said

that we had a very good and safe

year. He is continuing to work with

event chairs.

Drivers’ Education Chair Chris

Tabor recounted that 2015 had a

rough start because of date selections,

but ended strong. The class of

cars has improved. He has the 2016

calendar set, removing a March

event, but may add a weekday track

night. He is also working on ideas to

have an “Intro to the Track” session

within existing DEs. More later.

Tech Chair Ed Mullenix had a

pre-DE tech session set for January

(to teach and possibly certify people

to do self-inspections), but has to

reschedule. He will try get it done

early February. He is looking at locations,

which can be difficult.

Calendar Boy Brendan Eagan

sent an email several months ago

requesting backup help. Charlie

Wintch was quick to step up. They

will work together.

Concours Chair Andy Kay set up

several events in 2016, including

an April detailing session, May at

Mayo’s, and Autos in the Park at the

Cooper Aerobics center. He’s working

to firm up dates and details.

Editor Jim Hirsch is pleased

to keep going with the increased

Slipstream size (40 pages) thanks to

writers and photographers. Membership

continues to rise, and we

will again need increase the number

printed for distribution. Because of

the holidays, he had to move up the

deadline to the Dec 8 for the January

issue. He received the calendars

and mailed them out already. Directories

will be going out next week.

Treasurer Richard Solomon said

the club is in good financial shape

with about $175k in the bank. He

received sponsorship monies. He

wanted to write the club’s donation

check to Hope. We had some

discussion about Walmart gift cards

received from club members being

a lower total than normal. He

made a motion to send $10K as a

check for donations received and

anything over $10K will be converted

to Walmart Gift Cards, to

be delivered to Charity Chair Chris

Hamilton. Joe McGlohen seconded

and the motion passed. Richard

also discussed the Boot Campaign

and contributing to that worthwhile

cause. He made a motion we send a

check for $1000 as a donation. Joe

McGlohen seconded and the motion

passed. We are overall about

$40k over where we were last year.

Club Race Registrar Wendy Shoffit

reported that the Club Race went

well with about 60 drivers and 60

DE’ers. The CR committee wants to

purchase some items to help with

next year, but we decided it should

be part of the CR budget and not require

board motions and approvals.

She received suggestions from members

for Founders’ Day improvements,

which she will pass along.

The 2016 Club Race at Circuit of the

Americas is set for May 6-8 and plans

are proceeding accordingly.

Absentee Membership Chairs

Tom and Susan Froehlich reported

that we are at 1616 primary (up four

from last month) and 2524 total

members.

Jim Falgout mentioned that we

always need volunteers for COTA.

He also reported that Parade registration

is a little different this year

with hotel registration happening

FIRST in December. Look for notices

from PCA. Lastly, the Maverick of

the Month is Jim Hirsch for his incredible

contributions and willingness

to step up to get so many jobs

done. Congratulations!

All Member Party: Start Your New Year With Your Porsche

By Wendy Shoffit

The year was 1998. James and I

had recently joined the Porsche Club and weren’t quite

sure what to expect. We saw a Slipstream ad for a “New

Member Party” and decided to check it out. It was held

at the home of Bob and Chris Morris. We loaded up our

11 month old Jasmine into our 1990 911 C4 Cabriolet to

Lancaster. There were several dozen people there who

were very welcoming to us as we enjoyed the potluck offerings

and Bob’s famous chili. Region President Brian

Scudder took special attention of us and answered all

our questions. The main one? When and where can we

start autocrossing? That event started it all for us. While

we thought that the Porsche Club members would be

total snobs, they turned out really friendly and very

happy to see us.

Fast forward 18 years later. The same event is being

held, but it’s now called the “All Member Party.” The

original intention was for new members who joined the

past year to come out and have existing members answer

any and all questions that they have. Unfortunately,

there were a few years in the middle where attendance

was way down. It seemed as though ONLY the new

members were showing up and the existing members

weren’t coming out to welcome them! So, we changed

the name to not just NEW, but ALL members. The location

has also moved from members’ homes to business

locations to neighborhood clubhouses and finally to the

Hackberry Creek Country Club in Las Colinas. What

started out as a few dozen people blossomed last year to

over 130! The car show in the parking lot in and of itself

is impressive enough to attend. A few special cars have

been on display, including Carrera GT, 918, and maybe

even a special GT4 this year. *wink*

So, what can new members expect? The event is a

come and go affair. Show up for as little or as long as you

want. Come meet the people who share your passion.

Come find out what our events are about and which

ones might ring your bell. We will provide light snacks

and a cash bar. Event chairs wear badges saying “Ask me

about (their event name)” and will be stationed early at

tables so you can ask away. There are others (like me)

who walk around with a badge that says “Ask me about

Anything.” Having been around for a few years, I have

experience with all the events out there, so you can ask

me questions about anything, including national par-

ticipation. There are a handful of people with those

badges on. Ask us anything… we won’t bite. ☺ There will

be an official sort of presentation towards the end in the

main room for the event chairs to speak to the entire

crowd about their events, but it’s not in tons of detail

that could be boring to those not interested. After that,

we will stay until all the questions have been answered

or the country club people kick us out… and even then

we’ll be in the parking lot once it’s over (and even later

in Slipstream on page 4)!

So, please come join us this year and find out why we

say, “It’s Not Just the Cars, It’s the People!”

If you are reading and enjoying

this issue of Slipstream and

own a Porsche, here is how to

get your own personal copy of

the magazine each month.

It’s as easy as joining the

PCA Palooza 2015: An Eventful Ozark Mountain Weekend

By George Luxbacher, Region Rally Co-Chair

Photos courtesy of the Author

After attending PCA

Escape back in 2012, held in combination

with Palooza, Dee and I

have been hooked - a combination

of great Porsche-twisties on the

back roads of Arkansas and Missouri,

along with fall colors (albeit

a little past their

Mid-November

and the colors

were a bit past

their prime

12 January

prime), proved

irresistible and

brought us back

year after year

to Palooza in

Eureka Springs,

Arkansas! This

year was true

to form. While

the drive up

from Dallas on

Wednesday, Nov.

11, with the Harveys

and Sorrels

involved some rain, that was the last

precipitation we saw until Sunday.

Every drive was on dry roads with

top-down (as long as you don’t

mind a little chill and take full advantage

of the seat heaters) weather.

We stayed at the Inn of the Ozarks

Best Western, where the convention

center in the back served as Palooza

HQ throughout the event.

While the various drives didn’t

start until Friday, we signed up for

the poker stick gimmick rally on

Thursday, along with the Harveys,

something neither one of us had

ever done before. I wanted to see

if a stick rally would be something

that Don Sebert, my co-Rallymeister,

and I might introduce to the Mavericks.

A stick rally map is a straight

line with numerous cross-lines; in

this version you picked up a playing

card at each check station to fill a

five-card poker hand. The idea, in

theory, is to stay on the straight line,

and the lines to the sides direct your

actions at each intersection; there

are no street names or numbers. I

emphasize “theory” because a concept

that seemed simple was much

harder to follow in practice.

With Dee as the driver and me as

the navigator, we came into the first

check station from the wrong direction,

although we still got a card for

our poker hand, and then had no

issues at all getting to the second

check station. While we thought we

had the concept nailed, it was all

downhill from there. Despite four

attempts at the next leg, including

returning to the second check

station and starting over, we never

could match the roads with the

“stick” and wound up lost. Over two

hours later, we abandoned the rally

and returned to the hotel. While I

will probably try this again next year

(assuming I can talk Dee into going

along), I don’t think Don and

I will be adding a stick rally to our

schedule for the Maverick Region

this year!

Thursday evening ended with a

social mixer - a great opportunity to

visit with friends from other parts of

the country we see infrequently.

Friday morning we participated

in the Oark Tour, a new 183-mile

drive for 2015 that ran what seemed

to be all over Arkansas,

including

“The Pig Trail,”

a section of AR

23 that is fun to

drive. Watching

everyone try an

“Angry Hornet”

- a cheeseburger

smothered in

jalapeños at the

Ozark General

Store - was icing

on the cake for a

great driving day.

Stop here to

try an Angry

Hornet burger

Adam’s Premium Car Care, a

company well known to the Corvette

crowd, had a detailing station

set up back at the Best Western to

demonstrate their products. Sorry,

Jack and Andy, but I’ve now become

a convert to their wheel cleaner and

car wash foamer! Palooza Fest was

held that evening but we skipped,

along with a group of Mavericks,

in favor of trying one of the great

restaurants (Le Stick) in Eureka

Springs, staying late in the evening

to enjoy listening to Peter Maiella

playing guitar.

Taking a break during one of the

“spirited drives”

Saturday morning offered a

plethora of spirited and scenic

drive options. Although we previously

signed up for one of the spirited

drives, we quickly changed our

minds, given the nearly 100 cars participating!

We then joined one with

fewer cars, but still managed to get

separated from the group mid-drive.

Still a great drive, although Dee is

ready to go “less-spirited” next year.

We arrived back at the Best

Western in time to join the annual

Parade of Porsches through Eureka

Springs. Considering car and motorcycle

clubs go to Eureka Springs

throughout the year and do this, I

am amazed that the town traffic

shuts down for an hour to accommodate

the Parade, which is a lot of

fun! One of the cars in front of us was

even throwing candy, reminiscent of

a Mardi Gras float. The Parade was

followed by a Car Show organized

around People’s Choice awards and

a number of tech sessions. We even

found time to squeeze in a round of


Join your Porsche friends in Colorado’s high country

for the ultimate summer escape.

Saturday afternoon car show invites all to participate

drinks on the roof patio of the 1886 Crescent Hotel

and Spa with the Briggs and Koeppens.

The 2015 PCA Palooza was capped by the Saturday

Night Banquet, an event with innumerable door prizes,

for which each car gets five tickets. This year I came

home with a remote controlled Porsche model and

a great coffee table book. Several Mavs won People’s

Choice and Sponsor’s Choice awards for the car show,

although I’ll admit I didn’t try to keep track of who. I

do remember that Ed Mayo blew away the Tech Quiz!

Final statistics: 13 states, 27 PCA Regions, and 260

Porsches. This has become one of the largest Porsche

events in the US behind the Porsche Parade. With the

close proximity to DFW, you really should consider attending

this event next year!!!!!

PCA Tours: The Sunday Drive Program

By Tom Martin, Region Sunday Drive Chair

The Maverick Sunday

Drive Program has a long heritage

within the club for conducting lively

drives throughout the countryside

surrounding the DFW Metroplex.

From the early days when rudimentary

maps, highlighted on

pages copied from a Mapsco, to

the present, when predetermined

routes, loaded on sophisticated GPS

receivers, are used to guide drivers,

Sunday Drives let Porsche owners

exercise their rides in relative safety.

Typically, the first event a new

PCA member attends is a Maverick

Social. These events, formerly

known as Happy Hours, are the

springboard to all of our club’s activities.

After meeting our interesting,

intelligent, and even charming

members, many new Mavericks will

attend a Sunday Drive.

Sunday Drives usually run between

60 and 100 miles in length.

The criterion for getting from Point

A to Point B is neither shortest distance

nor fastest time. The criterion

is diverse and twisty back roads in

the wide open spaces, devoid of traffic

or residences.

Not all Sunday Drives are held on

Sunday. Because of the hours of operation

of some of our destinations,

we schedule some drives on Saturday.

We try to avoid conflicts with

holidays, observances, spring break,

and other Maverick and National

PCA events. Drives are generally not

held during the summer months,

when the sweltering heat blankets

the Metroplex, and when many

members are on vacation.

Upon arrival at a Sunday Drive

starting point, a participant will receive

a copy of the Drivers’ Briefing,

outlining the safety requirements

that must be met during the drive,

along with an overview map of the

route, as well as printed turn-by-turn

instructions. All participants must

sign a Liability Waiver. Drivers are assigned

to one of four Drive Groups.

After the Drivers’ Briefing, the Drive

Groups are released from the starting

point at five-minute intervals to

avoid congestion on the route. A

rest stop is normally scheduled near

the halfway point of the drive.

During the 2016 season, destinations

will include locales such as

the Mitas Hill Vineyard in McKinney,

Revolver Brewery in Granbury,

Rancho Sereno in God’s Country in

Whitesboro, and even MotorSport

Ranch, where we will be doing parade

laps on their most excellent

3.1-mile road course.

Stay tuned to Slipstream and the

Maverick website to receive all the

latest details and updates on Sunday

Drives. Hope to see you all sometime

on a Sunday Drive!

Porsche 914: The Ultimate Go-Kart

By Tom Martin

After my Porsche experience with

the 924 model, which encompassed three ownerships, I

pretty much figured my time with the marque was over.

Until one day, while visiting my sister and her husband

at their home for lunch, I spotted a classified ad in the

local newspaper for a 1971 Porsche 914. It was a 1.7L

four-cylinder model. Excusing myself for an abrupt exit,

I ventured out to affluent Fairfield County to view the

Porsche. It was raining cats and dogs that day. The 914

was safely ensconced in an old wooden barn, draped in

Canary Yellow paint, with a Spartan Black interior. After

a very wet test drive, I bought her on the spot.

Tom’s Canary Yellow 914-4

In the ‘70s, the Porsche 914 was the ultimate streetlegal

go-kart. Weighing less than 2000 lbs., with a power

output of 80-90 HP, and a mid-engine layout, the 914

was a superb “backroads rat racer.” It had an extremely

low center of gravity; the driver’s derrière literally hung

a scant few inches above the ground, on a modestly padded

seat, no less.

In Europe, the four-cylinder 914 was sold by a joint

marketing effort called VW-Porsche. The mandate of

VW-Porsche was to build vehicles out of VW components.

In the US, the 914-4 was marketed as a Porsche.

Controversy ensued. Porschephiles were appalled. Nevertheless,

the 914 was a successful venture, bringing

much-needed revenue into Porsche’s coffers.

The 914 was a polarizing model in Porsche’s lineup.

Understandably, the 911 was the jewel in the royal

crown. Porsche would never stray from its relatively

small, but hardcore customer base; they would always

put the 911 on a performance pedestal. The same rings

true today. But the financial successes of the 914, the

924, and the 986 Boxster effectively financed Porsche’s

efforts in perpetuating the legacy of the 911.

Even though the 914-4 was the Rodney Dangerfield

of Porsches (it never got any respect), I could hustle

Photos courtesy of the Author

that lithe wedge around the twisties of Connecticut with

amazing abandon; all the while with my son hanging on

for dear life as we sped from one Radio Control car event

to another in which he was competing. We utilized the

914’s rear-mounted battery and trunk as a “pit” for his

endeavors. He was very successful in his racing ventures,

securing several victories and multiple Championships,

and we got to share a lot of good father/son quality

time with countless memorable moments during that

time together. Good stuff, for sure.

The engine of the 914 was stuffed amidships, tucked

neatly beneath an 18” x 48” panel located behind the

rear “window”. At least that’s what my mechanic told

me. I never actually saw it. In retrospect, the 914 was a

spartan, unspectacular car, devoid of any modern amenities,

such as air conditioning. It was equally lacking in

some basic creature comforts . . . like heat, for instance.

Heat in the winter months was more of a concept than

a reality. The longitudinal steel heater boxes, originally

intended to direct heat from the air-cooled engine to

the cabin, were primarily just fodder for New England

rust; custom stainless steel units were de rigueur back

then. Even after they were installed, the “heated air”

would spew forth from the tiny vents with all the force

of an asthmatic seal.

The 914 served as

my daily driver, and

as a newly divorced

father, it was my only

means of transportation,

so there was no

autocrossing or tracking.

The Porsche

eventually suffered

an ignominious fate

too embarrassing to

relate. Whether or

not it met its ultimate demise is unknown.

The interior of the 914 was

“spartan” in more than its color

Nowadays, I find it amusing to read ads for 914s commanding

insane prices. Once the bastard child of the

Porsche lineup, with a questionable lineage, the 914 is

now earning long overdue respect within the Porsche

community . . . especially when it cleans up at a Porsche

Parade autocross!

Long live the wedge!

Founders’ Day 2015: Maverick Region’s 53rd Anniversary

By Carey Spreen

Photo contributions as noted

In November 1962, a dozen or

so fans of those funny little German cars with their engines

at the wrong end met at the Fiesta Best Western

Motel in Arlington to talk about establishing a local

chapter of the Porsche Club of America. The charter

from PCA was actually dated January 10, 1963, but November

stuck as the real date of the founding of the

club. Every November since then, Maverick Region has

celebrated Founders’ Day.

Based on the success of last year’s Founders’ Day location

at the Bent Tree Country Club in North Dallas,

Maverick Region’s celebration of its 53rd year returned

there for 2015. Also repeated this year was the Photography

Contest, organized by Charlie Davis, and judged

by Richard Bradley, previous Maverick Region member

and editor of Slipstream from 2009 to 2011, now living

in Kentucky; Mark Gluck, also a long-time Maverick;

and Jean-Francois Bulycz, who is on the Porsche Parade

photo team, and based in Silicon Valley. Founders’ Day

attendees also voted for a People’s Choice winner. See

the list of winners later in this article.

James Weber and Denise Etcheson set them all up in

a dramatic display at the front of the banquet room that

drew the attention of everyone as they entered. Also

involved in setting up the display were Linda and Alan

Bambina, Sue Crimm, Carey Spreen, and Tracy and

David Robertson. In case you didn’t make it to Founders’

Day this year, you can see all of the entries on our

website at mav.pca.org, then clicking on Photo Gallery,

then 2015, then Social Events, and Photography Contest

Entries.

Along with the Photography Contest, Founders’ Day

included our perennial Silent Auction, the proceeds of

which go to the Huffaker-Hughes Hope House, a facility

for battered

women and children,

which has

been Maverick

Region’s charity

for over a decade.

Lisa and Mitch

Huffaker, who

run the facility,

were again our

welcome guests.

Gift certificates,

jewelry, parts,

posters, clothing,

and a weekend in a beach house were just some of the

items that were auctioned off. See the list of contributors

later in this article.

Steve Krysil, a Regional Manager for Porsche Cars

North America, has been

a guest speaker at the

last few Founders’ Day

celebrations, and Steve

was here again this year

to talk about sales figures

and race wins from

2015 (including lots of

details about what goes

into fielding a winning

team for the 24 Hours

provide tantalizing hints

about Porsches that are

not yet available in the

US, but soon could be.

Not many folks can claim to have been an active member

of the Porsche Club of America for 50 years, so it’s a

special occasion when such a person makes an appearance

at an event. Clay

Perrine took the opportunity

to introduce

Al Zim, who joined

PCA in 1965, as one of

those rare members.

Al runs Zims Autotechnik

and has serviced

the vehicles of many

hundreds of Mavericks

over the years.

Another Founders’ Day tradition is the awarding of

the Richard F. Selcer Memorial Award, the recipient of

which is chosen by the Region President. In the words

of the creator of the Selcer Award, “the annual trophy

is intended to acknowledge

outstanding contributions

to Maverick

Region and to inspire

others to do likewise.”

in coordinating monthly

and drastically increasing

attendance at these

events, President Jim

Five Speed Chatter: Electrifying the Market

By Ash Seidl-Staley

Photos courtesy of the Author

Happy New Year,

Mavs! I hope your holiday festivities

were safe and produced long-lasting

and love-filled memories. I predict

that 2016 is going to be a fantastic

year for me, my family, and my

Porsches. I wish all of you the same,

and hope you can keep your various

Porsche-related resolutions.

Porsche is planning on having a

better year as well. Last fall’s emissions

scandal plaguing Volkswagen,

Porsche’s parent company, shook

the German automobile market.

VW, Audi, and even Porsche were

implicated in the breech of regulation

and saw significant losses in

their stock price as a result. At the

scandal’s zenith, in late September,

the share price of Porsche automobile

holding SE (POAHF) plummeted

from just over $70 a share to

deep lows marked in the 40s. This

VW’s problems affected

Porsche’s stock prices

was the second dip in price Porsche

stock received since April, where

the share price flirted with the $100

mark. As a Porsche owner, both in

cars and monetary options, the scandal

worried me at first. But then I realized

something: it’s Porsche; they

have just experienced a miraculous

racing season in all of their major

classes, and they always pull through

in the end.

Big news out of

the recent Frankfurt

motor show proved

that Porsche is back

on the prowl. The

company announced

its production of the

Mission E Concept, a

scathingly fast electric

car. Whether Porsche

decided to produce

the speedy green machine

because of the

emissions scandal, or

as a challenge to Elon

Musk, CEO of Tesla motor company,

doesn’t really matter. The E is

stylish, innovative, provocative, and

is coming soon. The electric car’s

concept model produced an electric

equivalent of 600 brake horsepower

at the rear wheels, posted a 0 to 60

acceleration time of 3.5 seconds,

and has a battery range extending

upwards of 300 miles.

Porsche’s intervention into the

world’s electric automobile market

comes from their innovative recharging

system. Using specifically

designed lithium-ion batteries, the

Company projects close to 80% of

the car’s power could be recharged

in as little as 15 minutes. Imagine:

by the time you finish your lunch or

register for car insurance, your car

The Porsche Mission E Concept

could be ready for another 200-mile

jaunt up the road.

Sadly, the new potential owners

of the E will have to wait, as Porsche

predicts mass production will begin

closer to the year 2020. But by then,

new mechanical and electrical innovations

will be developed so much

so that the final E might be even

more spectacular. Either way Tesla

should commence the shaking in

their boots; Porsche is coming!

Wrench on Mavs!

New Year’s Resolution: Porsche Polishing

your New Year’s resolution yet? Well how ‘bout we Polish

Our Porsches!

As an Obsessive Car Detailer, people ask me how to

maintain and protect the finish of their Porsche. So I

thought I would share a few tricks of my trade. This article

is not intended to be a commercial for Griot’s Garage,

although it’s what I’ve been using for more than

14 years and it works for me! Hopefully these tips will

work for you.

Step One: Wash the car.

I know, it’s cold out there, which

is why I use a waterless Spray-On

Car Wash. It’s formulated to cling

to your vehicle and break up road

grime so you can safely remove it

with a quality micro fiber cloth.

Please don’t take your Porsche thru

the car wash. I don’t recommend

the coin-op hand wash either. By

Before the BOSS

pulling the trigger and using the

high pressure mode, all kind of damage can occur. Besides,

you’re still outside and now you’re cold and wet!

Step Two: Clay your Paint!

Paint Cleaning Clay removes

all the contaminants that sit

on your paint. To get the clay

to glide across the surface, you

need to spray the surface with a

lubricant like Speed Shine. Now

dry with a quality micro fiber

cloth. Your paint is now completely

clean, smooth and ready

to polish.

Step Three: Paint Correction & Defect Removal with a Dual

Action Random Orbital

You’ve thoroughly cleaned the paint, now it’s time to

correct and perfect the surface. Polishing removes defects

which range from blemishes or light swirl marks to

scratches and scuffs. The more serious the paint defect,

the more serious (abrasive) the polish and pad. When

you remove defects, you produce a uniform, flat surface

that is better equipped to reflect light, and reflection is

what shine is all about. I have both the 3”and 6” Dual

Action Random Orbital and recently acquired the new

BOSS Best Of Show System for professional results.

Depending on the condition of your paint and how

you drive your Porsche, you have a variety of “next

steps.” Is this my Daily Driver, my Weekender, my Show

Car, or my Track Car? They are all different and need

different levels of protection.

The Texas Two Step: Complete Compound & Cleaner Wax

Complete Compound makes quick work of eliminating

defects while adding

depth to your paint. Complete

Compound starts out with superior

defect capabilities and

leaves an ultra-fine finish that

is ready for wax or sealant. Now

follow up with Cleaner Wax to

remove any minor imperfection

while delivering a deep,

rich gloss that safeguards your

finish with carnauba-based

protection.

Final Step: For the wettest looking paint, it’s Liquid Gloss

Poly Wax to the rescue

Liquid Gloss Poly Wax is

formulated from the latest synthetic

polymer technology. This

leading-edge wax delivers unparalleled

protection. Its smooth application

and lightning-fast wipe

off make it easy to work with, and

will bead water for months. I love

the wet look so much that I use

it on both my ‘79 911 Show Car

and my ‘87 928 Daily Driver.

Whether it’s your Daily Driver,

Before and after

Garage Queen, or Race Car, remember to keep the

shiny side up and have fun in your garage.

Around the Bend...

By Jim Hirsch, Managing Editor

Something to keep in mind for

2016: you can’t let the urgent overcome the important.

By the time you’re reading this, most of us have already

made, and broken, a number of New Year’s resolutions.

So, let’s begin again with what’s important to

us as Maverick members and consider some Porschespecific

resolutions for 2016.

• Bring joy and excitement to yourself and those

around you by driving your Porsche each day

(or each week, each month, or ???).

• Purchase a 2016 Maverick Club calendar at the

All Member Party in January to keep track of

your Porsche driving days.

• Participate in at least one more Maverick and/

or PCA event than you did in 2015.

• Take photograph(s) and write an article about

your first, favorite, or most recent Porsche experience

for Slipstream.

Our club is built on volunteers and is the epitome of

the PCA motto: “It’s not just the cars, it’s the people”.

In fact, take a moment in this new year and look again

at page 4 and familiarize yourself with the many members

who are volunteering in ongoing roles to ensure

the Maverick Region offers events and activities that

meet the interests of all of our members.

Maintaining an active group of volunteers is

the lifeblood of our club. To better assist in that

effort, a new Board position has been created

- Volunteers Chair. Jim Gallegos has agreed to

take this newly created set of responsibilities and

design ways for even more members to become

involved with making this club relevant for each of us.

While not urgent, this is certainly important to address

to start 2016.

While I don’t often use this space to write about specific

Porsche vehicles, as a 981 Boxster S owner, I feel

more compelled to do so with the recent announcement.

In case you missed it, the 981 model designation

is no longer going to be used. Beginning with deliveries

later this year, Porsche’s two-seat sports cars will be

called the 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman.

As Porsche noted in their press release, “The 718

model series is a continuation of the proven four-cylinder

concept and the history of distinguished Porsche

sports cars.” With the new design coming, the Boxster

and Cayman will have equally powerful four-cylinder

flat engines with turbocharging. The Roadster will now

be positioned at a higher price level than the Coupé –

as is done for the 911 models. Porsche will introduce

the 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman over the course of

2016.

You might have noticed a number of small

design changes beginning in this issue of Slipstream.

These are hopefully making the newsletter

easier to read for our members. I’m always

interested in hearing your suggestions, so please

send those to me at editor@mavpca.org.

Authors and Photographers Wanted!

We welcome contributions for articles and photographs from all

Mav members. If you enjoyed the stories and images of travel,

adventure, events, and collections of Porsche memorabilia in this

and past issues of Slipstream, please consider sharing your story

with us. Send your text and photos to editor@mavpca.org.
