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: Volunteers are our Lifeblood!

By Jim Falgout, Region President

As I write this, we are getting ready

for one of your club’s best annual events: the All

Member Party, an annual event in which new members

can meet and talk with more seasoned members to find

out what the club is all about. Not only do you get to see

a wide array of Porsches, you get to meet their owners,

who appreciate the marque just like you do. But, you

also get to learn about all the

different events your club

Not only do

you get to see

a wide array

of Porsches

and get to meet

their owners,

who appreciate

the marque just

like you do,

but you also

get to learn

about all the

different events

your club

has for your

enjoyment.

has for your enjoyment. The

chairpersons of the various

committees will be available

to give insight into their

events that they organize and

operate. I hope you were able

to attend.

Your club continues to

grow. We are now at an alltime

high of 2,542 members.

This is awesome! Hopefully,

each and every one of you

can find an event or events

that your club provides for

your enjoyment.

It amazes me how I keep

meeting people who are

members of our club who

never go to any events. They

are missing out on so much.

Life is too short! We all need

to enjoy our Porsches, and

the best way to do that is to

share the experience with

other Porsche owners at our events. Participation

sometimes requires a small amount of effort, but it can

be so rewarding.

What is even more rewarding is volunteering to assist

with one of your club’s events. For those of you who

would like to help but are not sure where you could make

your best contribution, we now have a chairperson for

volunteers: Jim Gallegos. He is gathering requirements

from the various chairpersons and will be happy to

direct you to the committee that could use your talents.

You can reach Jim at volunteers@mavpca.org. We have

had others volunteer recently, but we are always looking

for new enthusiasts!

Jim is a new volunteer, as is his wife, Phyllis. Phyllis

will be assisting Tracy Robertson with social events.

I have challenged all committee chairpersons

to find an assistant, like Phyllis, so there is less of a

burden on the chairperson, and someone can step in

when that chairperson is not available. So, when I ask

for a volunteer it is usually to be an assistant.

We do have a recent opening for someone to be the

liaison with the companies who advertise

in Slipstream. If that is something you feel

able to do, please contact Jim Gallegos.

As I always say, YOUR CLUB NEEDS

YOU! Volunteer; you will be glad you did.

Mav of the Month

Speaking of volunteers, several years ago, in another

life, I was president of a civic group. We had several

“past presidents” who regularly attended meetings but

would not do anything to help the organization function.

They felt like they had paid their dues. This is not

the case in the Maverick Region. One of our past presidents

has been a big help

to me and your club behind

the scenes. He assists

with the e-mail addresses,

the web page and has given

me much insight into how

and why some things happen.

He is also a past Zone

Five Representative. James

Shoffit, thanks for all the

assistance you keep giving

to your club.

Gimme a Minute: January Board Meeting

By Wendy Shoffit, Region Secretary January 6, 2016

President Jim Falgout

started the meeting a few minutes

early. He was contacted regarding

the All British & European Car Day,

who invited the Porsche Club to

their event on May 1 at White Rock

Lake Park. More details later. He

reported for the missing Tracy Robertson,

who was happy to announce

that Phyllis Gallegos will be her Social

Event Co-Chair. Their first event

together is the All Member Party

(AMP) on January 23.

Drivers’ Education Chair Chris

Tabor has good events dates set

up for 2016, with two in the spring

and three in the fall, including the

solo-only DE in conjunction with

the Club Race. He wants to market

the social aspects of the DE events,

as well as the driving. He will work

to promote events in Slipstream and

encourage photography and articles,

and will provide discount codes

for people who attend the AMP.

VP David Robertson is working

with past VP Gareth Maurice to

learn the ropes for insurance needs.

He will be talking to Zone 5 Rep

Lynn Friedman about insurance

needs for Equipe Rapide autocross

events.

Editor Jim Hirsch reported that

Slipstream was on time, even with

the early deadline due to the holidays.

He remarked that with about

300 new members joining every

year, it would be good for all chairs

to routinely give brief information

about their events in Slipstream. He

will continue the 40-page format,

as he has received great article support.

He will be selling calendars

and directories at the AMP.

Rally Chair Don Sebert is planning

a spring rally. He is looking for

dates and ideas for a gimmick rally.

Email him with suggestions.

Monthly Dinner Social Chair

Stephanie Ho said there is no event

in January to draw attendance away

from the AMP. The February event

will be at Lavendou, but will be limited

to the first 30 couples to RSVP.

It will be a special party in honor of

Valentine’s Day. March will bring us

back to Love & War in Texas. She is

looking in Addison for a location

for April.

Treasurer Rich Solomon reported

that we are financially healthy.

We had a net gain last year of ~$25K.

He will be sending out financial reports

to all event chairs with their

specifics. He will publish a financial

report in Slipstream soon. Founders

Day received over $9300 in donations

for the Hope Shelter (likely the

most ever) and about $12K for the

year. He had to modify (with presidential

approval) how the Hope donations

were handled for the end of

the year. Charity Chair Chris Hamilton

needed money for gift cards for

the party and the rest was sent as a

check. He also sent approved donations

to the Boot Campaign. He will

finalize the charity committee by

next month. He reminded all to use

the forms on our website for check

requests and money receipts.

Concours Chair Andy Kay is getting

the May at Mayo’s event set, as

well as information for Autos in the

Park in June. He is working with the

Lone Star Region Concours Chair,

Thomas Roy, on ideas.

Autocross Chair Mark Schnoerr

thanked Jim Hirsch for his Slipstream

promotion and James Shoffit

for his work on the autocross web

page. Approximately 30 Porsches

participated in the ER program last

year. He wants to encourage more

to come out, focusing on the fun.

Their events are low key and really

enjoyable.

Social Co-Chair Phyllis Gallegos

has already been working with Tracy

Robertson on the AMP. She will

make sure all requests get taken

care of for tables, power, etc.

Volunteer Chair Jim Gallegos believes

it will be easy to get volunteers

because PCA people are very nice!

He wants to encourage more to

help and will work with event chairs

for their needs. He wants all major

areas to have lots of support.

Perennial volunteer James

Shoffit reported that he has been

working as part of the web team to

update our website. He noted that

many pages still need to be done,

and it’s up to the event chairs to

look at their pages and make necessary

change requests. He will work

to catch up the history page.

DE/CR Registrar Wendy Shoffit

noted that registration for the first

DE of the year will open Jan 27.

Porsche Parade hotel registration

has opened and the “regular” event

registration will take place in early

April.

Absentee Past President John

Hamilton reported that our membership

is at another all-time high

with 1642 primary members and 900

associates for a total of 2542. This is

a net gain of 18 over last month.

Lastly, Jim Falgout presented

James Shoffit with the Maverick

of the Month award for his recent

work on the website, PayPal issues,

and continued website, email, and

Facebook support.

Meeting was adjourned.

It’s still cold outside which means frosty

mornings for your Porsche

High Performance Drivers’ Education: How

Maverick Region Puts on an HPDE By Carey Spreen and Chris Tabor, Region DE Chair

Unless you are a brand new

member to PCA and Maverick Region, you have probably

heard the term “DE” in the course of conversation,

our website, pages of Porsche Panorama, or perhaps

in this very magazine. If so, you know that it stands for

Drivers’ Education, also called High Performance Drivers’

Education (HPDE).

Porsches have gotten so fast lately that there are

almost no opportunities to take advantage of all that

performance on public roads, so we offer this alternative:

fulfill your need for speed safely, on a racetrack,

with expert advice from an experienced coach sitting

right next to you.

The goal of Maverick Region’s DE program is to

teach enthusiastic drivers the proper techniques for

driving at racing speeds on a racetrack using one-onone

in-car instruction. Our instructors, which we call

coaches (since that’s more along the lines of what they

actually do) are passionate about helping you get the

most out of your Porsche in a safe environment.

Safe, you say? On a real racetrack? Isn’t that a contradiction?

Absolutely not! Our DEs consist of the following

features to make sure that you have fun safely:

• First and foremost: DEs are NOT races. There

are no timed laps and no trophies. Passing is only allowed

on certain designated straightaways, to keep you

and your car safe. The five run groups are organized by

driver experience, not top speed or horsepower.

• Pre-event safety inspections are required. Take

your Porsche to an approved inspection site and they

will check out your car to make sure it is safe for you

and the other participants to take on the track, all at no

charge! All questions will be happily answered as well.

• Drivers’ meetings covering track safety occur at

the beginning of each day. First-timers and novices are

fully briefed about what to expect on the track.

• Classroom instruction from our coaches provides

you the proper line around the track, the proper

procedures and locations to pass other drivers (and

to let them pass you!), the meaning of all those flags

(hint: there are more flags than just the green and the

checker), and much more.

• Four on-track sessions per day provide a total

of 3-1/2 hours of track time over a two-day event weekend,

although you can opt for a single day at a reduced

price.

April 2-3 1.7 Motorsport Ranch

• Professional corner workers are on course

whenever cars are at speed – they are there to keep you

safe.

• Lunch breaks consist of catered meals each day,

with free cold bottled water available throughout the

day to keep you hydrated.

Our main goals are to be safe and have fun. And

don’t be surprised if, at the end of your first DE, you

are already looking forward to the next one! The novice

run group fills up quickly once registration opens,

so check out this year’s schedule and make plans to get

to know your Porsche at speed!

Driving Competitively on a Budget: 2016 Autocross

By Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair

The Maverick Autocross program

is a low-risk way to get started in competition driving in

almost any car. Our region puts on events combined

with the Equipe Rapid Sports Car Club (autocross.com)

at sites like Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie and Mineral

Wells Airpark, about 40 miles west of Fort Worth.

It is an excellent way to learn car control skills that will

come in handy every time you drive. You will quickly

learn about proper seating position, looking ahead,

threshold braking, and precise car control while you

try to execute a perfect lap on a pylon-marked course,

where you will be timed to the thousandth of a second.

Unless you do something very unusual, the only risk

to your car is a rubber cone contact that can be easily

cleaned off.

Many have used autocross as a stepping-stone to

Drivers’ Education or Club Racing. Some very fast and

well-known road racers got their start in autocross.

Some drivers still autocross after moving up to those

higher risk activities or move on to National caliber

Porsche Parade or SCCA competition.

Most Porsches can navigate the whole course after

just one shift to second gear. The next 60 to 80 seconds

are such a rush that some drivers barely take time to

breathe. You do this six to eight times after just walking

the unique course found at each event. The rest of the

day you will meet lots of interesting people, take a turn

running part of the event from registration, tech, or

corner station duty, and enjoy an exciting assortment

of interesting cars at speed.

Although there are many classes at these combined

events, Porsche Club entrants run in the so-called “small

region” classes (as defined in the Parade Competition

Rules, or PCRs). For 2016 these include three fully

showroom stock classes for completely stock Porsches.

There are also classes for upgraded and more heavily

modified Porsches, of course.

All events, except the Novice School, are on Sundays.

Registration is available online or onsite. Arrive

about 8 am and bring a lunch or snacks with you, as

there is usually no official lunch break. After tech inspection,

walk the course yourself, or do so with the

formal novice walk-through for some additional insights.

Cars start running about 10am and awards are

presented about 4pm. See the

online calendar at mav.pca.

org for this year’s dates. Hope

to see you there!

Member Authors: Getting Published in Slipstream

By Brenda Dranow, Region Content Wrangler Screenshot courtesy of the Author

Did you realize that

Slipstream is now in its 54th year of

publication? For members new to

the Maverick Region, that might be

a bit surprising. Further, you can

actually read previous issues of Slipstream

begining with January, 2002

by visiting the Maverick web site

and selecting the Newsletter tab.

Having a club newsletter with

such a long and rich history does

not happen by accident. One constant,

throughout all of those years

of publication, is providing stories

and photos that feature our members

and the wide array of activities

they particpate in courtesy of the

club.

I hope you enjoy each issue that

arrives in your mailbox each month

and that you spend time reading

the articles that your fellow members

submit which describe a variety

of adventures they experience

courtesy of their Porsche ownership

and membership in our club.

We are always looking for fresh

content to share with our readers

and invite you to spend some time

considering what you would like

to see included in a future issue of

Slipstream with your name attached

as the author and even the photographer.

We agree that pictures are

often worth a thousand words!

Here some guidelines to keep in

mind as you begin your article:

• A rule of thumb is about 700

words per printed page, without

photos.

• Photos enhance your article and

should be submitted in the highest

resolution possible to ensure

good quality printing.

• Write about what you find interesting

as it’s likely to be interesting

to many of your fellow members,

as well.

We look forward to receiving

your ideas for articles in upcoming

issues. You can find suggestions on

topics to consider in the ad below.

Send your ideas to me at pr@mavpca.org

or our Slipstream editor, Jim

Hirsch, at editor@mavpca.org.

Sunday Drive How-To: Using Your Garmin GPS for PCA Tours

By Tom Martin, Sunday Drive Chair

Screenshots by the Author

In May 2000, at the direction of

President Bill Clinton, the U.S government discontinued

its use of “Selective Availability” in order to make

the Global Positioning System (GPS) more responsive

to civil and commercial users worldwide. This directive

effectively opened up a “whole new world” of accurate

navigation technology to the general public.

Rudimentary, expensive GPS receivers (GPSr) were

introduced, embraced mostly by hobbyists. As technology

burgeoned, more practical uses were exploited by

industry, such as aviation, boating, and most certainly,

the automotive sector.

That was over 15 years ago. Nowadays, a GPS “nav”

unit is almost standard equipment in modern cars.

Smartphones utilize it. Watches, dog collars, even underwear

can be purchased with GPS technology incorporated

to track the location of the bearer. Big Brother

lives, and we are him.

Drive leaders in the Maverick Sunday Drive program

use Garmin GPS receivers, with Drive routes loaded,

to guide them along a pre-planned route. The program

utilizes the Garmin BaseCamp software to plot

its Drives.

Three days before a Sunday Drive, a mass e-mail is

sent to all drivers who have submitted an RSVP for the

event. The e-mail contains three files:

1. Garmin .gdb file of the route

2. Route Overview

3. Turn-by-Turn Instructions

The Garmin .gdb file is a proprietary file which,

when loaded into a Garmin GPSr, will guide the user

on a specific route, regardless of the criteria of shortest

distance or fastest time. In other words, you will get

from Point A to Point B in the manner determined by

the author of the file -- perfect for Sunday Drives.

So let’s load one up and take ‘er for a test run, shall

we? Instructions are for the Garmin 2557, but should

apply to all new, and some old, Garmin models.

First, save the .gdb file from the PCA Tours e-mail to

your computer, preferably to “Desktop”.

Then you’ll need to install the “BaseCamp” program

on your PC or Mac, which is available for free at the

Garmin website. Go to: http://www.garmin.com/en-

US/shop/downloads/basecamp to download the Base-

Camp software. Once installed, launch the program.

Next, connect your Garmin unit to your computer

with the USB cable that came with your GPSr. After

powering up, BaseCamp will recognize the unit.

To upload the .gdb file to BaseCamp: go to the Toolbar

and left click on “File”, then select and left click on

“Import into My Collection”. (Figure 1)

Figure 1

Highlight the .gdb file, and then select “Open”.

(Figure 2)

Figure 2

Now that the .gdb file is stored in BaseCamp, send

the file to your Garmin unit, first by selecting it in “My

Collection”. (Figure 3)

18 February

Figure 3


Then go to the Toolbar and left click on “Device”,

then select and left click on “Send to Device”, and then

“Send Selection to Device”. (Figure 4)

Select “Trip Planner”. (Figure 7)

Figure 7

Select the route you just loaded. (Figure 8)

Figure 4

Highlight your GPSr from the list and then select

“OK”. (Figure 5) After a few seconds, the route will be

loaded into your Garmin unit.

Press “GO”. (Figure 9)

Figure 8

Figure 5

That’s all there is to it. So now that the route is loaded,

hook your unit up to your Porsche and let’s drive!

At the start up screen, select “Apps”. (Figure 6)

Figure 9

Press “Start”. (Figure 10)

Figure 6

Figure 10

19


It is important to note that the default waypoint is the second

waypoint of the route. The first waypoint is the start point

of a Sunday Drive. So if you are already at the starting point

of a Drive, you would simply press “Start”. If you are starting

from anywhere else, such as your home, you would select the

first waypoint before pressing “Start”.

Now follow the purple road and do exactly what the

voice tells you to do. (Figure 11)

If so desired, you can create your own personal route

in BaseCamp for yourself, or to share with others. Be

advised that the program is not really intuitive or userfriendly.

BaseCamp Training Videos are available for

viewing at http://www8.garmin.com/learningcenter/

training/basecamp/. If you find these instructions inadequate,

independent study is highly recommended.

There are several excellent tutorials posted on YouTube

that may prove more useful than the Garmin library.

And if you develop an interesting drive that you

would like to see incorporated into the Sunday Drive

program, by all means feel free to forward it to me at:

tours@mavpca.org.

Hope to see you and your Garmin on a future “Sunday

Drive”!

Volunteers: The Lifeblood of the Maverick Region

By Jim Gallegos, Region Volunteer Chair

The Maverick Region

prides itself on the many and varied

opportunities we provide for member

participation each month.

Like all non-profit groups, we

can only provide those activities if

we have member volunteers who

share their interest and experience

with other members by volunteering

to help in one of the myriad

ways necessary to ensure success.

So, I decided to follow that idea

by offering to serve in a newly created

Maverick Region role - that

of Volunteer Chair. First, a bit of

background of my history of volunteerism.

My lifetime of volunteering experiences

started with my Dad - he did

everything for everyone.

I have a 30-year volunteer association

with United Way in three

different states: Colorado, Arizona,

and Texas.

I published an article in the Dallas

Business Journal in 2007 on“The

importance of Pre-K education” as a

United Way volunteer.

As the United Way Advocacy

Chair, I spoke to Texas state legislature

members on behalf of the

United Way in Austin.

I served as the P and Z chair, on

the Arts & Culture Board, and I-35

Corridor Board in Lewisville for 8

years.

I currently serve on the Garland

Community Multi Culture committee

as appointed by Mayor Athas.

On the Porsche side, I fell in love

with a 1974 Porsche at a car show

and purchased my first 1999 911

two years ago.

My wife Phyllis and I are able to

attend many Maverick club events

together and have met some great

people.

Most recently, I’ve helped organize

the last two Porsche Cars and

Coffee with 46 attendees in Garland

with a visit from Mayor Athas and 76

beautiful Porsches in Addison. Just

call me the cone man!

I look forward to identifying and

fulfilling Volunteer needs for Maverick

Region event chairs (see page 4)

and continuing to share the Porsche

experience with as many members

as possible!

Hope Shelter Christmas Party: Always the Season to Give

By Chris Hamilton, Region Charity Chair

Photos courtesy of the Author

Much happiness was

found at the Hope Shelter Christmas

Party in December. Rich Keesecker,

a fellow Mav, and his family

and friends performed their magic

for the room by getting the crowd

up and dancing to their traditional

Bavarian music and the infamous

Chicken Dance. This was the seventh

straight year that they have

entertained the children and their

moms. They had dancers from their

group ranging from four years old

to a very young 74.

The club bought

$100 gift cards for

eleven moms and

$50 gift cards for

eight employees of

the shelter. The children

each received

gifts from the club.

Chris Hamilton had

a lot of fun shopping

for twenty children.

They let us know a

WANT and a NEED

to make their holiday

Rich Keesecker with family and friends

dancing to traditional Bavarian music

Santa brought joy to many children

brighter. Santa

came and the

room was aglow

with bright faces.

Thank you for

your continued

support. This one

day makes the

moms and children

so very happy!

All of the attendees enjoyed the

opportunity to dance

The Man Who Thinks He Can: Porsche In Poetry

Courtesy of Porsche News, Porsche AG

Photo courtesy of WEC

Porsche is bringing poetry to the

racetrack and has posted to YouTube and shared on

social media a dramatic video starring actor and auto

racer Patrick Dempsey describing Porsche motorsports.

The video contains a reading of “Thinking,” sometimes

he referred to as “The Man Who Thinks He Can,”

a poem written in the early 20th century by Walter D.

Wintle, of whom little else is known. The poem is motivational,

beginning “If you think you are beaten, you

are” and ending, “sooner or later the man who wins/is

the man who thinks he can.”

Here is the poem for your reading enjoyment:

If you think you are beaten, you are;

If you think you dare not, you don’t.

If you’d like to win, but you think you can’t,

It is almost a cinch that you won’t.

If you think you’re outclassed, you are;

You’ve got to think high to rise.

You’ve got to be sure of yourself before

You can ever win the prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go

To the stronger or faster man;

But sooner or later the man who wins

Is the one who thinks he can!

Published in 1905 by Unity Tract Society, Unity

School of Christianity. Called “Thinking”, by Walter D.

Wintle.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost;

For out of the world we find

Success begins with a fellow’s will

It’s all in the state of mind.

Road Test Comparo: 2015 Toyota Corolla LE vs 2016 Porsche

Cayman GT4

Words and photos courtesy of Greg Dranow

It was a crisp, clear

morning in the Santa Monica

Mountains over Los Angeles. As

I had only arrived into town the

night before and it was early, I was

not yet able to retrieve the GT4.

Rather than simply linger at the

coffee house, it seemed only wise

to take this opportunity to put the

rental car, a 2015 Toyota Corolla

LE, through its paces over part of

Mulholland Drive. Specifically, The

Snake.

The author posing with this

comparo’s featured ride

this reality. The

radio supplied in

our test car was

of ample quality

to drown out the

tinny sound of the

engine and exhaust.

Well done,

Toyota!!

After a few trips

up and down The

Snake, this driver

was not disappointed.

With the

Corolla’s MSRP of

$18,565, the entire

vehicle came

in at less than the

available options

list on the GT4.

The GT4. Simply

put: it is everything

the Corolla is not. Starting

with the yellow color (not even an

option on the Corolla), their curb

appeals could not be more different.

Is one better than the other?

Well, if you need to take two kids to

the grocery store, then to a birthday

party with poor street parking

surrounded by oblivious minivan

The author’s GT4 used in this comparo

drivers, I would go with the Corolla.

Otherwise, the GT4 is the clear

choice.

Editor’s Note: Although this may be

considered an unusual comparo, I hope

Greg’s experience will encourage other

Maverick members to consider submitting

their own “interesting” comparos for

future issues of Slipstream.

The Corolla. Four door, four passenger,

four cylinder offering from

Japan belting out 132 horsepower

with a 0-60 time of 9.7 seconds

claimed by the manufacturer and

supported by mainstream automotive

magazines. In the interest of

weight reduction, we left our own

calibration equipment behind . . .

With a comfortable and upright

seating position, the Corolla’s ingress

and egress was very comfortable

and outward visibility in every

direction was excellent. Body roll

was impressive and any poor braking

application really exacerbated

The Porsche Code: How to Crack It

Courtesy of Porsche News, Porsche AG

Every Porsche model has an official

name and an in-house type number. Sometimes the

two are identical, sometimes not – how can the system

be understood?

You have to go back to the year 1931 to understand

the beginnings of the in-house numbering method.

Every order, every project of the newly founded engineering

design office Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche GmbH

of Ferdinand Porsche was given a consecutive number,

the in-house type number. In the beginning it was the

number 7: the design of a saloon car for the German

car manufacturer Wanderer. Number 22 became the

legendary Auto Union Grand Prix racing car and the

Type 60 was the Volkswagen. The numbers therefore

rose with each new order, with each engine designed,

with each drawing for an axle, a gearbox or a tractor.

On 8 June 1948, by which time the project numbers

had climbed to 356, a novelty came about: for the first

time an automobile was made under the official brand

name of Porsche. The Porsche 356.

In 1988, a major break occurred in the 911 history

with the introduction of the completely redesigned 964

model series. The 993 followed in 1993. Then the 996,

997 and, in the current model, we return to the 991.

Between the internal numbers of the 911, there are still

further models to be found, with examples being the

Carrera GT (internal 980), the Boxster (986 first generation,

987 second, 981 third) and the Cayenne (955).

The tradition of the three-digit type numbers is being

maintained – albeit with a certain degree of creative

freedom.

So, the current model line includes:

Boxster (Cayman is the coupe model)

An artificial name used since 1993 and derived from

Boxer (engine) and roadster

Carrera (e.g. 911 Carrera)

Originally, “Carrera” was the name of the Type 547

four-camshaft engine designed by Dr Ernst Fuhrmann.

Porsche later used this suffix for the most powerful

engine versions, such as the 356 A 1500 GS Carrera or

the 911 Carrera RS 2.7. However, Carrera has almost

become established as a synonym for the 911 model series.

The name comes from the Carrera Panamericana,

a Mexican endurance race in which Porsche secured

major successes with the 550 Spyder.

E-Hybrid (e.g. Cayenne S E-Hybrid)

Apart from the combustion engine, the E-Hybrid models

also have an electric motor on board, which provides

more thrust while simultaneously emitting less CO2.

Executive (e.g. Panamera 4S Executive)

The Executive models of the Panamera have a body

extended by 15 cm, which primarily benefits the passengers

sitting in the rear.

GTS (e.g. Cayman GTS)

GTS stands for Gran Turismo Sport and is originally

a homologation class from motor racing. The 904

Carrera GTS received this epithet for the first time in

1963. In 1991, the 928 GTS revived the tradition. The

GTS suffix is currently used to designate the especially

sporty and exclusive models of a Porsche model series.

RS (e.g. 911 Carrera RS 2.7, model year 1972)

The RS (stands for RennSport[=racing sport]) and is

a street-legal model that has been derived from the

motor racing version. The designation is, however, also

used for particularly sporty models, e.g. the 911 RS

America.

RSR (e.g. 911 Carrera RSR 2.8 model year 1973)

The RennSport Rennwagen (RSR) [literally: racing

sport racing car] is a purely competition version and is

not street legal.

S (e.g. 928 S, model year 1979; Macan S)

S for “Super” or “Sport”: a version with a more powerful

engine. Today the S consistently stands for “Sport” and,

in addition to the extra-sporty engine, additionally includes

enhancements to the equipment compared with

the basic model.

Spyder (918 Spyder)

The designation originally comes from the coachmaking

term for lightweight, open carriages for two

people. In a similar way to the term Roadster, Spyder at

Porsche designates open mid-engine sports cars. The

918 already has a legendary predecessor in the 550 Spyder

from 1953.

Targa (e.g. 911 Targa 4)

The 911 Targa is an open version of the 911, characterised

by its distinctive roll-over protection bar and its

fixed roof section. The name comes from the legendary

Sicilian road race Targa Florio and means “plate”

in English.

Turbo (e.g. Cayenne Turbo)

These models have an engine with exhaust gas turbocharger,

which produces a powerful boost in performance.

Almost all Porsche models have had an exhaust

gas turbocharger since 2015.

4 (e.g. 911 Carrera 4)

Models with all-wheel drive

So, stay tuned, as we all know the 2016 model change

is bringing a new number to the list with the introduction

of the 718 Boxster/Cayman line.

Around the Bend...

By Jim Hirsch, Managing Editor

The Maverick Region of the Porsche

Club of America exists for the benefit of you, the club’s

members. In fact, the club bylaws include this statement

as a primary objective: “The enjoyment and sharing

of good will and fellowship engendered by owning

a Porsche and engaging in such social or other events

as may be agreeable to the membership.”

In short, that means offering a wide variety of activities

in which our members can exercise their Porsche(s)

while enjoying the company and conversation of enthusiasts.

I think all of your club board members would

be interested in hearing from you as to how you think

that objective is being met. You can find those email addresses

on page 4 if you feel like sharing your thoughts.

In the meantime, from a start in 1962 with 15 Founding

Members, your Maverick Region club has grown

to include 1,616 primary members with 908 affiliate

members as of December, 2015. Here is an interesting

statistic: although the raw numbers show that the club

gained a total of 129 primary members during 2015,

we actually had a total of 347 primary members new to

our region join and/or transfer in. The difference of

course, is due to those 218 members who chose not to

renew their membership during the year.

What does that mean for our club? It means that

each year we have a significant number of people new

to either Porsche ownership and/or our region. That

means all of our existing membership has to take an active

interest in engaging these new members. In other

words, club activities that seem to be repetitive to long

time members will hold a “newness” for quite a large

number of new members. Let’s make sure we go out of

way to welcome these new members with open

arms - the math tells us we have over 20% membership

turnover in 2015 alone!

Slipstream is a wonderful way for new members

to find out information about club events

that sound interesting to them. Event chairs make

certain we have upcoming events highlighted with ads

throughout the newsletter and provide articles recapping

event activities. These are all official, fully sponsored

Maverick Region and PCA events. In addition,

the calendar on the Maverick web site (mav.pca.org)

lists all of these club supported events.

There will be times, however, when new members

want to find other ways to get together with their fellow

Maverick members. This may be for an impromptu

drive on a beautiful day, some help with Porsche maintenance,

or even simply getting together for coffee and

bench racing and meeting other members.

The best way for new (and existing) members to find

out about these impromptu gatherings is to join our

Maverick Facebook group at https://www.facebook.

com/groups/mavpca/ and/or follow our Maverick

Twitter feed at https://twitter.com/MaverickPCA.

There you will find all sorts of conversations occurring

with lots of opportunities to get together in casual

settings. For example, David Cavazos takes it upon

himself to reserve spaces for our Porsche group at the

monthly Dallas Cars & Coffee held at Classic BMW in

Plano the first Saturday of each month. In a similar

fashion, Tony Lisotta and Jim Gallegos coordinate a

Porsche specific Cars & Coffee just for our members

each month.

In addition, take a look through our advertisers’ information

in each issue and follow them on Facebook

or through their web pages and you may find opportunities

for gatherings that they sponsor for their Porsche

customers.

I hope you’re keeping this one New Year’s

resolution for 2016: “Participate in at least one

more Maverick and/or PCA event than you did

in 2015.” And, now add to that, “Welcome a new

Maverick member personally.”
