Prez Says

by James Shoffit, Maverick Region President

Talk about a rough start to a burgeoning

concours program! Let’s see – we had

three events scheduled for the same day

(Piney Woods tour, Tech Session at Park Place

and Driver’s Edge event at MSR), and the

weatherman predicted rain! But 10 or so of us

went to the top level of the Dillards parking lot

at NorthEast Mall, and had a wonderful time!

The Boy Scouts all appreciated our cars, and we enjoyed showing

them off as well. It was definitely a lot of fun for Wendy,

who drove one of the winning Scouts on a thrill ride around

the parking garage!

Our first Autocross and Time Trial were also huge successes

– we had 43 time trialers and 48 autocrossers. There was a

2 hour delay for hail, but there was no damage other than wind

damage to Ezups. The autocross course was one of the most

fun ones I have driven in a long time – big thanks to Cody for

setting that one up!

In May, we have the autocross and time trial on the first

weekend, the Hill Country Drivers Education event on the 18th

and 19th, and then our premier event of the year, the Club

Race. The Porsche Store is sponsoring our Club Race this year,

and we are aiming higher than ever! We now have experience at

this facility, and expect this club race to be a first class show!

Come on out during the Memorial Day weekend to see the cars

and the people!

If you are Blue Solo’ed, consider driving in the DE we will

hold in conjunction with the race – I know I can’t wait! There

will also be a Concours event at the track, including both street

and race cars. You don’t want to miss this! Check out our

website for all the details.

If you are less interested in competitive driving, but still

want to participate, then we have plenty of other events. There

is a tour to Louisiana, a few Porsche Lunches, and a Happy

Hour on the 16th at Cuidad in Dallas.

So, come on out, and join the fun!

Happy 40th Anniversary,

Slipstream!

We’ve come a long way,

haven’t we?

Because I Said So

by Wendy Shoffit, Editor

There are some exciting things going on

this month. James has already done a

good job of reiterating them. If you

have any questions, look at the calendar page

and/or our webpage at www.pca.org/mav.

The most interesting turn of events that

has happened is that Maverick Region will be

the host of the 2004 Porsche Parade. For those

of you who might be new members or haven’t heard of it

before, Parade is a week-long event for PCA members. It is held

at a different location every year. Last year was in Milwaukee,

Wisconsin this year is in Boise, Idaho, and next year will be in

Tampa, Florida. Roughly 1000 PCA members from all over the

country (and other areas of the world) get together during this

week to participate in a plethora of events. These include: a

concours d’elegance, a TSD rally, an autocross, tech quizzes, an

art show, tech sessions, golf tournament, a 5K/3K Run/Walk, an

RC autocross, a kids autocross (with bikes, scooters,

rollerblades, etc.), and so on. For areas like ours with a road

course nearby, Parade is starting to include a Drivers’

Education event as well. As if that weren’t enough, all but 2

evenings during the week have banquet dinners, some casual

and some formal, but always delicious!

Maverick Region has hosted Parade before, in 1987 and

helped again in 1997 for the one in San Antonio. We thought

we would wait another few years to do 2007 (to make it an even

Maverick Minutes

by Andy Mears, Secretary

April’s meeting was called to order at

7 PM at the home of the Shoffits with a

busy agenda and a full house of Maverick

members for this meeting.

Top of the agenda was the official

announcement that Maverick Region has been

asked to present a bid on hosting the 49th

Annual Porsche Parade in 2004. More information

will be forthcoming as the details get hammered out. On a

topic related to Parade, Maverick Region is looking for national

award nominations for the 2002 Parade in Boise, Idaho. A few of

the nominations include Public Service Award, Family of the Year

Award and Enthusiast Award. If you would like to find out more

information on how to make a nomination please contact any of

the Maverick Board members.

A motion was presented and passed for the region to

purchase a radar gun for use at region sponsored Club Races.

The equipment is required for monitoring vehicle speeds in the

pits. Also, the upcoming May Club Race and DE registration is

starting to fill-up, if you want to participate or volunteer

checkout the Maverick Region web site for all the details.

An important change in the May schedule is that the annual

10 in between each time), but circumstances arose nationally

that needed to be taken care of. So, we’ll be a couple of years

“early” from what we originally expected.

We don’t have a whole lot of details as of yet. A planning

committee is surveying possible sites to serve as the host hotel.

There is a huge list of criteria that needs to be met, including

large enough banquet facilities, plenty of parking (including

trailers) and hotel rooms, a large open outdoor area for the

concours, and so on. There’s a lot to it.

This is an incredible opportunity for our region to shine.

We will be asking a lot of you Mavericks, including volunteers

of all sorts. We will also be asking members of other regions to

help out in their areas of expertise to put on the best show

possible. This will be a lot of work, but there will be a lot of

benefits. Besides, when else might you get to see Peter Porsche

in his swim trunks?

I look forward to this exciting event in 2004 and hope you

will be, too!

Oh, I almost forgot... who wants to be editor next year? I’m

quite certain I will be heavily involved with Parade planning

and implementing and honestly won’t have time to do

Slipstream. So, I’m looking for a willing volunteer. I can offer

on the job training and help next year. Contact me with any

questions or to volunteer. I will be more than happy to talk to

you about it! It’s a very rewarding job!

May at Mayo’s has been moved to from May 11th to May 18th.

Look for the ad in this months Slipstream.

Tinker Edwards reported on the successful first Spring tour

and reported that everyone had a good time. Also, there are

several tours planned for 2002 so watch the Region calendar for

upcoming events.

Finally, the March AX school was a great success and everyone

had a great time and the club made few dollars to help pay for

future events.

The next Maverick Region Board meeting will be on May 8

in Irving at the Shoffit’s.

Maverick Region PCA Board

Meetings are held once a month.

The meetings are open to all PCA members and

your suggestions and opinions are welcome.

And there’s free food!

Boxstermania

by Keith Olcha

February 18 - We had, at one point- 9 Boxsters and 3 911s. It

was fun. We did 5 brake flushes, 2 oil changes, and 1 trailer hitch

install!! And lots of talking!

We attracted the attention of two Tech-Art equipped 996s with

wheels,full bodywork,etc.who followed some people over. We had

Eric Beebe visit us to shoot the breeze. Dennis Chamberlain even

threatened to come, but got up too late.

The best surprise, and the winner of the "best-looking" Boxster

from my daughter and her two teenage friends was the Yellow car of

none-other-than Tom (I finally bought the damn car) Snodgrass!

Darron is now Mr. Car Tools (hand me that spanner, will

'ya...). Rocky Johnson has the freshest brake fluid on the planet

right now.

We covered brake pad replacement procedure, Brey-Krause

roll-bars, Valentine-1 mountings. It was a ball.

Thanks, Porsche cars, and Dr. Wendelin Weideking for your

Japanese consultants who told you how to make the new cars easy

to service.

Forget you, Dr. Weideking for your Forbe's Magazine comments

about how racing is foolish and Ferrari is backed by Fiat- Ha-Hawe'll

never race F1.

Sorry Jeff Gordon lost the Daytona 500 for blocking (bang), but

that's racing!

Texas Hill Country Tour

By Bill Coates

Once again if you only relegate your Porsche membership

to Social Hours or Driving Events you miss a very enjoyable

part of owning a Porsche. You don’t see many of the

Porsche owners that go to the Driving Events and these are the

ones who should not miss the tours. These tours are driven at an

aggressive pace that would be enjoyable to those with the talents

learned at Driving Events. I am going to try a Driving Event once

Stuart’s is finished with my car (new paint and wide body work).

There were not as many Blue Bonnets this year as last but

telling people you are going on the tour to see the Blue Bonnets is

like saying you are going to the Super Bowl to see the Cheer

Leaders. We go first for the driving, second to see the country, and

last and best to see old friends. Just like other events there are a

group of Porsche owners who are always there.

The tour was what I expected from Ted Glover. Nobody likes

driving through the countryside better than Ted does. He and

Bonnie will take off on any given weekend and drive somewhere

in Texas or the United States just to see the country and have the

pleasure of driving. Of course when you have over 30 cars to

choose from it can make a difference. But seriously, Ted really

would rather drive to California for a Dentist meeting than take

a plane and when he can he does just that. This makes Ted

probably the foremost authority on Texas roads and roads of the

great USA. We get the benefit of this knowledge with an extra

benefit of knowing all the good Bed and Breakfast and eating

stops; extra notice on eating stops, huh gang?

Now we get to the trip. We left Friday, April 5th, from

Hillsboro at 9:00 am to head south. This did make it easy for the

Ft Worth group to meet up and take as little extra distance as

needed to the starting point. We had fair weather for Friday while

we traveled down to Kingsland Old Town Grill in Kingsland. This

grill was in an old house that was moved after the filming of the

movie “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” The house was moved and

joined other houses to form a small hotel. The setting was like an

old railroad stop including a Depot and several old cabooses that

were also used for rooms for your stay. We left from there on Texas

back roads to the Willow City Loop. For those who do not know,

the loop is through an area of open range that normally is covered

with Blue Bonnets. Last year you could look into the valley and

see a blue carpet. This year it had hardly any flowers because of

the lack of rain. We also heard that sometimes Blue Bonnets go

Photo by Mike Oakes

through a two-year cycle of being plentiful or scarce. We must

have had the scarce year since no place had many flowers. We

started to turn around right then and go home—NOT.

From the Willow City Loop we drove the back roads to

Comfort, Texas and our home away from home, the Haven River

Inn. These people at Haven River Inn are like family to the

Porsche Club. They know us and look forward to the visit. Most

of us made our reservations last year when we where there and it

was the same thing this year. Last year my best friend, Ted, saw my

room and reserved it out from under me for this year. This caused

a lot of fun this year. As soon as we arrived at the Haven River Inn

everyone visited each other’s rooms to look at the color and set

Keith Bird getting a little close to the local cattle.

up. Doors where opened and we just wandered in and out of all

the rooms. Then I started the stampede and made my reservation

for next year and took Carl and Judith’s room on the reservation

list. When this got out it was one after another running and

scheduling rooms. We enjoyed heckling each other about getting

the other one’s room.

The Steves family out of San Antonio built the Haven River

Inn in 1911 for a summer home. It stayed in the family until 1992

when Johnnie Merchant bought it to rework the home to use as a

Missionary retreat. This is when the bathrooms where added to

each sleeping area. In 1994 the house was changed to a Bed and

Breakfast and the top floor of the hotel, which was an attic, was

changed to have a small kitchen with two rooms. The house did

have a large porch that went from the front of the house around

three sides. This area is now enclosed and is where you check in.

This is probably the first time this store has seen so many Porsches!

The Haven River Inn provided the perfect central location.

10


The Inn has tables that are set up all along the old porch for

eating. The outside porch was added at the same time to go

around the front and one side. This was the meeting place for the

club where we sat in rocking chairs and talked and laughed about

the events of the day. The Inn sits on top of a hill with a creek on

one side and a great view of the countryside on the other. I am not

sure when the bat house was built but you can see it over the top

of the trees behind the property. The railroad once ran through

Comfort but was later moved. The old tracks that go through the

countryside and through tunnels were dismantled for the metal

and the old tunnel near the Inn is now a large home for bats. We

did not make the trip to see the bats, but at dusk every day you can

go out and see them leave. There was wild life on the property in

the form of a small heard of deer that slept in the grass every night

in front of the Inn.

. . . one hole for both sexes. . .

Most of the group followed Carl to the car wash. Standard

procedure for Carl to wash his Porsche after it accumulates the

least amount of dust and wet road film. He is nearly as bad as Ted

and me. Normally we would arrive and just have time to change

then get in our cars to travel to some nice place to eat but

this time Ted changed it. Ted had the Inn cater a meal of beef

tenderloin, roasted garlic mashed potatoes, vegetable medley,

Caesar salad, soup, and sherbet. It was nice to have time to settle

in and relax before eating and then not have to get dressed to go

eat. Don’t get excited we did dress to eat at the Inn; we’re not that

close of a group.

We began the morning with a good breakfast at the Inn and

started driving. Now do you remember me mentioning that Ted

also knew good eating-places? You better come on this trip

hungry and not have a problem with sweets. First stop was a little

bar-b-que place called Gravens Store. This is a small store at an

intersection of two state roads that has some wicked bar-b-que

and good beef jerky. Of course it is only 10:00 am but we had a

sandwich and stood in line for the one hole. Really one hole for

both sexes that had a water faucet about one foot off the ground

out side the door to wash your hands and Ted supplied the paper

towels. But you don’t stop there for the rest stop - only the eats.

We then were back on the road headed for Utopia. Don’t

misunderstand, utopia may be the experience of driving our

Porsches, but it is also the name of a town. In Utopia we had

lunch, 2 hours after the sandwich, then started towards Kerrville.

Remember the eating. We again stopped in a small town of Medina

at Love Creek Cider Mill and Gift Store. This place is known for

making anything with apples. You name a dessert made with

apples and it was there. Most had hot apple pie and ice cream

while others enjoyed apple strudel and ice cream.

We were back on the road to Kerrville to make a stop for the

other half who put up with our Porsche toys. This was the James

Avery Store so the women of the club could enjoy some

shopping. Several nice things where bought and a lot of good will

was established.

From there it was back to Comfort and the Haven River Inn

to change and rest up to make the trip to the German restaurant

in Waring. Good food again and fun talking about all the stops to

eat. You will have to ask Tinker about getting pranked since it

cannot be described in this article.

Sunday was started by another good breakfast at the Inn and

then followed by the return to Dallas and Ft Worth. We traveled

back roads up through Burnet and had lunch on the way. Another

great trip with fantastic people.

Ted has several day trips planned and you Porsche owners

need to take advantage of hiss knowledge of the Texas highways

and eating stops. The next one on May 18th-19th is a two-day

trip out to the Kissatchee National Forest in and around the

Nacogdoches area.

There will also be a

short trip into

Louisiana. See page

3 for details. These

roads have been

written up in the

Texas motorcycle

magazine as some

of the best in

Texas. There will

be more details in

the Slipstream and

you can call Ted

Glover to get more

information or

suggest a trip.

There’s just something about a country

store that draws people in.

Happy Hour At Sea Grill

By April & Steven Dodd

Happy Hour Crew: Dennis Chamberlain,

Dee Lersch, and Mark Gluck

Sea Grill, hmmmm…..the name in

and of itself seems innocent

enough, But the word Sea brings

to mind all sorts of scary thoughts for

the Dodd Family. First, we have not had

a vacation near any body of surfable salt

water for at least four years. So we need

to be by the sea. Second, we have not

had the chance to eat good seafood in

quite some time. I believe the last good seafood we sampled / inhaled

was at Galveston at our favorite haunt, Gaido’s. Last, but not least, the

sea contains salt, and makes things rust, so keep the non galvanized 914

away from the sea or anything that contains that word.

On the upside of the word Sea, we asked our nephew and new

Porschefile, Addison Rogers to join us at this month’s happy hour, his

first ever, at the Sea Grill. He hates seafood but loves Porsches. He is not

old enough to drink, but old enough to have a learner’s permit, own a

very clean 85 Red 944, and old enough to drive Steven and April to

happy hour. He was kind enough to help transport us down the short

jaunt from Coppell to the Tollway. He bummed a free meal, (lamb

chops) courtesy of Aunt April and Uncle Steve and got to speak with the

entire usual happy hour group. He even got to purchase some goodie

store stuff.

Ok the review of Sea Grill. The food that we had was nothing short

of perfect. More importantly, the car showing was beautiful. I am not

sure if the weather warmed up enough for everyone to put wax on

within the last several weeks but the cars looked beautiful. This

beautiful display appeared despite the three days of flooding that

preceded the happy hour. The display was an impressive site to see for

both long time happy hour attendees and newcomers alike.

April and I met a few new folks and that is one of the best parts of

these events. Peter Weyandt and I talked about strut replacement and

how much we loved driving cars that are set up with stiff suspensions.

April spent her time hanging out talking to just about everyone there.

My nephew, Addison picked up warnings from ex drag racer turned

road racer Brent Yager. The warnings included stories of his past street

racing and how much more exciting it is to race on a real track. This was

well-appreciated and great advice for a new driver who happens to drive

a Porsche. He now plans to autocross and Time Trial, both of which are

cheaper than speeding tickets.

All hats off to Dennis for offering free tax advice and setting up a

great happy hour.We had a great meal, sat by great friends (and our new

neighbors Alan & Debbie) and were served by some of the best wait staff

in North Dallas. We watched John Leto rev up and speed out of the

parking lot with incredible acceleration. Who could ask for more?

Mineral Wells Autocross School

By Mike Bridges

Photo by Kevin Hardison

To James, Wendy, Bill, Cody, Monda, Mitch, Mike, and all

of the other PCA’ers who made my weekend so great.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! What a blast

for a 2-day “crash” course in Autocross and Time Trials. It all

got started on a shaky note, as I found that my checkbook had

managed to escape me and I didn’t have enough cash to pay for

the school. No problem: a lady named Monda Degan loaned

me $100! I was speechless (which is hard to accomplish)! She

had no notion of who I was, other than a fellow student with a

problem. When I asked her if she was OK loaning a virtual

stranger that much money, her reply was “you’re with this

group, don’t worry about it.” WOW, what a statement about the

attitude of the PCA Mavs!

this point in my training. The most enjoyable exercise of the

morning was the “oval” or “football” skidpad. There I learned

how to properly spin my car! “Once you lose it, just put in the

clutch and DON’T lock up the wheels.” Then I was given a goal

of spinning my car out at least one time (Mitch demonstrated

the proper spinning technique to me). As it turned out (no pun

intended), I spun on the very first apex.

Then, after lunch from Subway, the instructors set up a full

autocross course building on the segments we had practiced in

the morning. I managed to improve my times every lap, and

was beat by the end of the day.

Then a fellow student, Will, and I were paired up with

Mitch Williams. Will has a late model Ford Cobra and I have

a ’94 Camaro Z-28. Mitch said he was paired up with us

because “they call me ‘TorqueMan’!

The Saturday autocross school started out with separate

sessions on three slalom courses, two skid pads, and a braking

course. I probably got five times as much seat time during

Saturday morning as I had in the two autocross events I had

participated in previously, and seat time is EVERYTHING at

Mike Bridges, Mitch Williams, and Will Rosales - big smiles all around.

Monda Degan driving the slalom like a pro.

Sunday was the day I was REALLY looking forward to. Up

until then my racing hadn’t gotten out of 2nd gear. Today

would get MUCH faster. The morning exercises were basically

two halves of the overall Time Trial course (#2, I think). One

half was pretty technical, introducing decreasing and increasing

radius turns, the Start/Finish line, flags, etc. The other half

introduced a braking zone going into a hairpin turn. I had

cooked my brake fluid pretty badly on Saturday, so I was a bit

conservative (OK, timid) on this exercise, only getting it right

once. But, WOW, what a rush! Flat out in 3rd, almost to the rev

limiter, then on the brakes hard enough to activate the ABS,

thinking “there’s no way I’m going to make this,” then off the

brakes, down into 2nd, and through the hairpin. THIS is what

performance cars are all about.

Cody Sears leading the drivers’ meeting.

I only got one good picture of my car on course Sunday,

when Mitch borrowed my Z to come up to speed on the track

layout. He’s coming across the Start/Finish line in this one.

If you’ve ever even THOUGHT about running autocross

or time trial events, taking this school is a no-brainer. $85 for

two days of outstanding training by some of the most

dedicated, hard-working, and FUN people to be around, and

you even get fed lunch both days!

I know I’ll be back for more in the future!

Fixing Your Porsche Oil Leaks

By Ted Glover

As everyone who owns a Porsche knows, they leak oil. This

article will deal with one of the areas that is susceptible for

leaving a Valdez-sized oil puddle under your car.

Being a dry sump system, the oil is scavenged from the bottom

of the block and stored in an oil tank. The oil is then pumped back to

the engine to function as a lubricant and a coolant. To get the oil from

the heads back to the block it must pass through four oil return tubes

located on the bottom side of the engine. These thin-walled metal

tubes have large o-rings on each end to prevent leakage as the oil

passes through them. This works well until heat, damage, and time

takes its toll and they no longer function as they should. Then the

leaks start.

...without grunting,swearing,and

peeling the skin off your knuckles. . .

Some evidence of failing o-rings will be oil drops on the ground

under the engine, oil film on the underside of the engine, and the

smell of burning oil as the engine and exhaust system gets hot. The

cure is to remove these O-rings and replace them with new ones.

Sounds so easy. However, the only way to get the O-rings out to

replace them means having to remove the oil return tubes. There are

two ways to remove these tubes. One way is fairly easy and

inexpensive, while the other way can be time consuming and expensive.

You either crush these tubes (they are thin-walled) and twist

them out, or you can remove the engine and disassemble it. Crushing

is a whole lot quicker. The removal and installation of oil tubes can be

done with or without the exhaust system on the car. When I did mine

(1977 Turbo), I removed the exhaust manifold on the right side of the

car but left the exhaust manifold on the left side of the car. Access to

the oil tubes will determine which way you will have to approach it.

Replacement tubes come in various designs, but to be able to

install them on the assembled engine in the car, they need to be in two

pieces. These two pieces fit/slide over each other so you can place the

tube into the head and the block and slide the two pieces (make the

tube longer) until the O-rings are in place and the tube secured. You

then have a clip that keeps the tubes under tension and they cannot

back out.

Being an OEM type of guy, I decided to use genuine Porsche

tubes to repair the leaks. Their design is the two-tube system, which

you install by sliding the tubes out into the head and block. This

system utilizes four O-rings. Two of the O-rings are small and fit

between the two tubes to create the seal as the tubes are spread out,

and two large O-rings, which fit into the head and block. There is then

a circlip that fits into an indentation and prevents the tubes from

sliding out. Sounds simple, but unless you are Arnold, you can forget

about trying to do this with the engine in the car and limited access.

I could barely pull these tubes apart when I held them in front of my

chest with both hands firmly grasping them, never mind trying to do

this with fingertips under the car.

So, I resorted to the spring-loaded tubes. This system has a

spring between the two tubes and creates pressure by resting on two

lands and trying to push the two halves apart. You install this system

by compressing the spring by pushing the two halves together (easy

to do), placing the tube in its proper location and essentially releasing

the spring and the two halves. It takes a little force to get the O-rings

to seat in the head and the block, but installation of the tubes with this

system takes only minutes. All without grunting, swearing, and

peeling the skin off your knuckles.

There are many Porsche suppliers who sell oil return tubes of

various designs, but I got mine locally at Nine-Eleven Enterprises, a

Slipstream advertiser. If anyone has any questions, please call me at

972-248-7751 or speak to me at one of the Maverick Region events.

Boxster Boulevard - The Leaf Catcher

By Bob Bianconi

This is the first installment of what we hope will be a regular

column dedicated to the Maverick Boxster owner. We’ll be

reporting on Boxster events like the February tour,

Boxster tidbits and other useful information for the Boxster

owner. This month, we’ll provide a spring cleaning tip intended

to keep your Boxster running cool this summer.

The Boxster Leaf Catcher

Take a peak. The leaves are there… along with candy wrappers,

cigarettes, pebbles, stones and anything else floating around on

Texas highways. Where? Why, the two air intakes on the front

bumper (or 3 on a “S” model). If it’s been a while since you

peaked in the radiator air intakes (or maybe never…), you’ll be

sure to find all manner of road debris. Surely all of this debris

can’t be good for the cooling efficiency of your radiators,

especially on a typical Texas 100˚ summer day. When it’s hot, you

want the air flow to your radiators to be unimpeded so they can

perform at their best.

So, maybe it’s time you spent a few minutes this spring

performing a leaf-ectomy. It’s not hard once you know the trick.

If you’ve taken a look at the openings, you’ve already noticed that

the air intake grills are not removable (without removing the

whole bumper cover). This makes access to the debris a bit more

challenging.

Photo by Bob Bianconi

Vacuum out the air intakes

vacuumed up. Be careful to not hit the fins of the radiators. As

a finishing touch, take your garden hose and rinse down the

radiators, not too strong, not too weak.

So there you have it; a simple trick to keeping your radiators

operating at their best for the upcoming summer months. Save

those paper towel rolls, you’ll be needing them.

I think you’ll find this spring cleaning tip also works on the

Boxster’s big brother, the 996.

. . . a few minutes this spring performing

a leaf-ectomy. . .

A simple vacuum cleaner will be the tool of choice albeit

with a slight modification. Your standard vac attachments won’t

work because of the intake grills; they are just too large to fit

through the openings. But we can take care of that. Besides, your

trusty vac, you’ll need 3 cardboard paper towel rolls; you know

the kind, the cardboard roll that you throw away when you have

used up the last paper towel. Here’s the trick: Insert one roll into

the other and then flatten the first 2 such that they fit in between

the lower set of louvers on the grill. Insert the end of the vacuum

into roll three and turn it on. A flashlight helps you aim the end

towards the far corner; that’s where you will find most of the

debris. Leaves, wrappers, stones and pebbles will all get

Flatten and insert paper towel rolls.

If you are still doing the "Spring Cleaning", here are a few

items the shelter needs:

Bedding of all kinds, kitchen supplies, clothing for small

children, and any baby supplies!!

We will be setting a date sometime in the next few months to

have a "Worker Party" at the Hope Shelter. They are desperately

in need of some "sprucing up." We will be painting, doing a little

cleaning and repair work. If you are interested in assisting the

folks at Hope, please e-mail me your name and phone number to

LHughes@fmstech.com. When we have worked through the

logistics, I will contact you. This will probably take place around

mid-August. Thanks in advance for your support!

Standards in the Cayenne

By PCNA

Modern technologies set standards in the Cayenne

Porsche has pursued a new path and developed an off-road

sport utility vehicle.

Stuttgart. With the Cayenne model due to be launched in the

fall of 2002, the Stuttgart-based automobile manufacturer Dr. Ing.

h.c. F. Porsche AG intends to set standards in the Sport Utility

Vehicle (SUV) market segment. The new Porsche model with

off-road capability is to be available in two versions, the Cayenne S

and Cayenne Turbo. It is a totally new design incorporating many

impressive, pioneering technologies and not based on any previous

model.

Porsche has conceived the Cayenne as an extremely sporty

vehicle capable of being driven off road when necessary. Its entire

character, shaped at the company's research and development

center in Weissach, reflects its close affinity with the Porsche sports

cars that enjoy worldwide success.

Among the many technical highlights to be found in the new

design are totally new 4.5-liter, eight-cylinder engines. The

Cayenne S is rated at 250 kW (340 bhp) and has a peak torque of

420 Nm; the Cayenne Turbo's engine develops 331 kW (450 bhp)

and a torque of 620 Nm. Both these engines guarantee exceptional

performance: for the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h, the naturally

aspirated Cayenne version needs 7.2 seconds and goes on to a top

speed of 242 km/h. The Turbo version accelerates to 100 km/h from

a standing start in 5.6 seconds and has a top speed of 266 km/h.

Both Cayenne engines easily outperform the EU 4 exhaust

emission limits that will be in force from 2005 on, and also all other

regulations of this kind anywhere in the world. A six-speed

Tiptronic S transmission is standard equipment on the Cayenne

Turbo. Both Cayenne versions naturally have permanent all-wheel

drive and the well-known Porsche Stability Management (PSM)

system, which has been further developed to suit the specific needs

of this type of vehicle. An inter-axle differential lock and additional

low-range gears are evidence of the new Porsche's potential on

loose surfaces.

As well as offering the driver and up to four passengers sportscar

standards of performance, agility, handling and braking, the Cayenne

S and Cayenne Turbo feature the latest chassis and suspension design

developments that yield standards of ride quality and refinement

never before available in this vehicle category. The Cayenne also

goes to the top of its class when it comes to towing a trailer, with

the high load limit of 3,500 kilograms.

The Cayenne's low engine hood and strikingly styled headlamps

identify it immediately as a true Porsche. Both Cayenne S

and Cayenne Turbo combine elegance with an aura of power. The

range-topping Cayenne Turbo has certain visual features that

distinguish it from the naturally aspirated version: additional air

inlets at the front, power domes on the engine hood and four

exhaust tailpipes. The latter have a slight effect on the overall

length: the Cayenne S is 4,782 millimeters long, its more powerful

turbocharged counterpart 4,786 millimeters long. The width of

1,928 millimeters and the height of 1,699 millimeters are identical,

and so is the wheelbase of 2,855 millimeters.
