Road Ramblings

by Keith Olcha, Maverick Region President

The weather is changing and fall is around

the corner. The last autocross this year is at

Texas Motor Speedway in October, and it is

also our charity autocross. By charity, we mean a

portion of the fee will be donated to charity and

the club will write off any loss from the event. A

loss can occur since TMS is a relatively expensive

parking lot to rent. They've given us a break on

the price as their donation to charity, but it might

not be enough unless we get 60-80 cars out there. This will be a low

key event, novices are welcome, and we'll be helping out the Hope

Shelter. Won't you please come and run the event? If you donate

another $5-$10 it will be greatly appreciated. Please come out and

drive, or make a small donation if you can, to the shelter.

The Hope Shelter is our main charity. It is a refuge for

women and their children who need some way to recover from

the desperate and hopeless situation of an abusive home. The

ultimate goal of the shelter is for them to leave and go out and live

a normal and productive life. At the recent Maverick group

watching of "Top Speed" at the Fort Worth Museum of Science

and History, advance ticket sales netted the shelter $90. We're

hoping the charity autocross can add another couple of hundred

dollars.

...watertight in up to 24 inches of water...

On September 6th, a caravan of Mavericks driving 5 trucks

full of donated items made its way to the shelter. Not only were

the items greatly needed and appreciated (there were several

families living there at that time) but there was also a breakthrough

in the shelter's quest for materials on some maintenance

projects they desperately need. Kevin Procaccino, an executive at

Mercedes Homes and an avid Maverick club racer and DE

instructor got his company to donate paint to repaint both the

exterior and the whole interior of the shelter. Kevin had not been

to the shelter before and he was affected, like many others, with a

calling from within to help this worthy cause. Please come out on

October 26th to TMS.

Last month I mentioned that I missed out on a couple of

opportunities to experience some great vehicles in August. Well, I

made up for it in September. My first drive was in Myron Krupp's

2004 GT3. Now the thing that amazed me most about the car was

the redline. The maximum RPM of the GT3 engine is 8200 rpm.

Unlike some Fiat's I'd driven in the 1970s, this motor had

amazing elasticity; it was strong from 3000 rpm right up until

8000 (I didn't do the full 8200). You can drive the car in third

gear all the time, 20mph up until 75 mph. The second thing is the

noise from both the engine mechanicals and the exhaust. Not

offensive, but no need for sport mufflers here- it's throaty and

raspy- forget a radio, this is better than Mozart or the Beatles. It

seems much noisier than anything else on the road. It sounds like

a racecar 50% of the time. One might think the ride would be

harsh, but it wasn't much harder than my Boxster S with sport

suspension and 18 inch wheel/tires. I drove a GT2 for a few laps

at MotorSport Ranch, and I will tell you it was faster and stiffer

than the GT3. But for $65,000 more, the GT2 had better be. If

you are a track person, the GT3 will be more satisfying than a 996

twin turbo as it has only 35 less horsepower, yet weighs 300

pounds less - just about a wash, and with bigger brakes and

wheels and no sunroof for added strength. It has a nice interior

with leather and power everything. Even though we didn't turn it

on, it even comes with a CD-radio.

I also had the opportunity to take a drive in a 2004 Cayenne

S. We held our September board meeting at Autobahn Motor

Cars in Fort Worth and they gave several of us test rides in a

Cayenne on their off-road course that they built adjacent to the

dealership for demonstrating Land Rovers and Cayennes. What

the vehicle can do off-road is amazing. It can climb and descend

brutally steep grades, hold position on grades without using the

brakes, and can lock side-to-side, and front-to-back differentials

for incredible wet and dry traction. It can even pull with only one

wheel having grip. It is also watertight in up to 24 inches of water.

The only thing more impressive than the Cayenne's off-road

prowess is it's acceleration and braking considering it weighs

6000 pounds. When you consider the Cayenne's engineering and

abilities off road and on road, you can see why it costs what it

does. There's a lot of typical Porsche engineering in this newest

product line. I can't think of two more opposite vehicles - a

Cayenne and a GT3 - yet I did know and was driving a Porsche in

both. Since I've been driving a 911 since 1989,which one do you

think I liked best?

One last item of note is a road rally on Saturday, October

25th. I'll see you there; till next month then.

As one of only two dealerships in the country to earn the Premiere Dealer and

Perfect Service Award - and the only one in the Lone Star State - we were, shall

we say, a bit excited. Thanks to our incredible clients, our perfection-driven

staff, and Porsche, for giving us a reason to celebrate today, and every day.

Curves Ahead

by Matt Platts, Editor

Irecently realized that I’ve had my 924S for just

over five years. A lot of things have changed in

my life in those five years, but I still get a grin

on my face every time I get behind the wheel.

Anyone who knows me will tell you that I really

enjoy driving (some might say that I enjoy it too

much!), and this car sure makes every drive a treat.

I’ve done several things to my 924S in these

five years, mostly maintenance items like belts (a must on the 2.5l

water-pumper), belt rollers, seals, plugs/wires, oil-cooler rebuild,

water pump, a couple of sets of rotors, a few sets of pads (DE’s will

do that), new shocks, sway bar upgrades, suspension bushing

upgrades, and a few other odds-and-ends. The clutch went out at

Parade, so a new clutch was in order, as well as engine mounts and

some new exhaust hanger hardware. I also decided to have the air

conditioner fixed since it’s been out for a couple of years. Now that

I’ve had all that work done, I feel like my car’s almost new again! It’s

just as much fun to drive now as it was when I first took it for a spin

in New Hampshire before I fell in love with it. I plan on driving this

car until it completely falls apart – and I don’t expect that to happen

any time soon. 190,000 miles and counting. I know I’m preaching to

the choir, but these cars (even the cheap ones) are a blast to drive,

aren’t they?!?

Maverick Minutes

by Wendy Shoffit

The September board meeting was held at

Autobahn Motorcars in Fort Worth on

Tuesday, 9/7/03. Autobahn graciously

supplied us with fajitas from Dos Gringos, a nice

meeting room, and special Cayenne test track

runs. Thanks!

In attendance were Keith Olcha, Bob

Knight, Cody Sears, Teri and Charlie Davis, Jan

Mayo, Mike Brodigan, Joe McGlohen, John Sandusky, Albert

Sansores, Wendy Shoffit, Lanean Hughes, Graham Lane, new

attendee Josh Roberts, and back-from-the-north Bob Ande. The

meeting began at 7:25 PM. Keith allowed everyone to take a turn

around the room.

Cody – Time Trial #4 was successful with over 30 attendees.

We made money on the event and overall are positive for the year.

Since Autocross #7 (Oct. 26) at TMS will most likely lose money,

it’s nice to have a cushion. We need to have trophies made for AX

and TT season winners. A motion was passed to spend $2000 for

trophies this year. He also brought up a discussion regarding the

Wednesday pre-tech before AX or TT events. Although we have

strongly encouraged attendance, turnout has been steadily

declining. Board members were asked for recommendations.

Suggestions included having a secondary tech location or doing

away with pre-tech and having tech only at the track. Most agreed

that we don’t want to discourage participation. Cody and Mark

Steele will make the final decision.

Teri – We have a rally on Oct. 25th, which will include parts

We had a few non-regulars show up at the September board

meeting that was hosted at Autobahn Porsche in Fort Worth.

That was my first time to see their facility; it’s a very impressive

dealership. As you would expect at a Porsche dealership, attention to

detail was at the top of their list. The customer waiting area had a

high-definition plasma screen to view while you are waiting for an

oil-change (or waiting for the board meeting attendees to show up),

there are snacks and soft-drinks, and a parts counter that carries

shirts, caps, all sorts of cool Porsche trinkets (I think all the real

"parts" are hidden out back somewhere). I’m looking forward to

checking out our other area dealerships at the next two board

meetings –Park Place in October, and Boardwalk in November. All

members are welcome, so come by and join us!

October is full of events, there’s a Happy Hour at a cool place in

Irving, the RPM Café. We’ve also got a Time Trial, and a tour to

Arkansas. Then the end of the month has promises to be fun

multi-event weekend including a Tulip Rally, Halloween Party, and

our annual Autocross to benefit the Hope Shelter. This Autocross

counts toward season points, and it’s also going to be a test of how

we plan to run the Autocross at next year’s Parade here in Fort

Worth. Soon following all that fun is the Founders Day Banquet at

the Speedway Club above Texas Motor Speedway. We expect a great

turnout at all of these events, so I hope to see you there!

of the Parade rally. She’ll advertise it with AX #7 and the

Halloween party to encourage participation. She needs many

volunteers to help run this event. We also might need to buy rally

clocks and repair others.

Charlie – Made changes to the Truxster, including an improved

sound system. He will be trying some Parade AX logistics for AX #7

at TMS. He has also been working hard on the timing display. A

series of problems has him working on alternates.

Mike – We have lost 4 advertisers, but have replaced one

and Mike has leads on others. He mentioned the bylaws require

several financial documents be reported quarterly, which Bob will

work on.

John – The September DE is full through the yellow group,

with 100 entrants and 62 instructor candidates. We have set the

DE dates for 2004 (watch calendar). He is still trying to work out

details for a mid-week event at MSR this year.

Lanean – (as Mimi) Halloween party is on 10/25. Teri will

announce rally results & hand out trophies. Contact Mimi with

other special requests. Holiday party location is set at the

Walker’s. Lanean told of the convoy of packed trucks that went to

the very grateful shelter on 9/6. Kevin Procaccino (Mercedes

Homes) has agreed to buy paint for the shelter and others have

donated their labor. She also mentioned Founder’s Day is coming

up (11/8). DE Sponsorship has been set for next year. Thanks, as

always, to our dealerships, Autobahn, Boardwalk, and Park Place.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:45 PM.

Nacogdoches Tour - Find Every Dairy Queen in East Texas

by John & Chris Hamilton

Asmall but hearty band of ten cars took the Nacogdoches tour

in August, led by perennial Tourmeister, Ted Glover. We had

our 7:30 a.m. drivers’ meeting at a Wal-Mart just east of

Dallas, then headed East to explore the back roads of East Texas and

some Piney Woods country. Two Boxsters, a 928, a 930, a Turbo

and several 911’s led the pack, with Bonnie and Mimi in the BMW

as the caboose. Picture-perfect weather had been ordered-up,

and that’s what we got (except for two 5-minute humiditycleansing

showers).

...all the Dairy Queens that we want to

see for the next six months...

Back roads took us to Palestine and the Texas State Railroad for

our first rest stop. Then it was on east to Lufkin for lunch at the

Crown Colony Country Club (only disappointment: Bob Lewis

didn’t have his golf clubs!). After lunch, we took a roundabout tour

Photo by John & Chris Hamilton

of the Davey Crockett National Forest. The roads were clear, the

scenery was beautiful, and the cars were humming as we cruised

through the well-mapped-out tour. Along the way we stopped

by our first of several Dairy Queens, for some well-deserved

refreshments. Finally, we ended our day in Nacogdoches at the

Fredonia Hotel. Dinner at D. Gar’s Bistro was delicious, with some

great memories of the day to be shared by all.

Sunday morning brought us another beautiful day for touring.

We left the hotel at a much-more leisurely 9 a.m. and had an

enjoyable romp to Rusk before driving to Palestine for lunch.

Sunday’s lunch stop was at Don Jose’s, which had a special $9.99

‘nuff said...

D.Q. “Queens”

all-you-can-eat buffet. What a meal! After a very enjoyable lunch,

it was time to hit the roads and start to make our way back toward

Dallas. But not without one last D.Q. stop!

Every car worked perfectly throughout the tour, and the FRS

radios kept us in constant contact throughout the trip and kept the

pack together. Everyone got to meet a few new people, and got to

know others even better. And our Porsche’s and BMW were well up

to the task and gave us a great tour of East Texas, its restaurants, and

all the Dairy Queens that we want to see for the next six months!

Thanks, Ted for a great tour. The diet starts tomorrow!

Top Speed / Blue Mesa Social

by Noby Takahashi

Quite a few Mavericks made the trek over to the Fort Worth

Cultural District to check out ‘Top Speed’ at the Omni

Theater. Being a resident of East Dallas, this was my first

trip to this area in few years. The Boxster S decided not to join me

in my westward journey, I had to sneak in a Chevy truck amongst

Porsches in the reserved parking area.

Photo by Matt Platts

...I managed to get our table

in the food line before the

Shoffit’s table...

Between people that RSVP’d and drop-ins, my guess is that

nearly 100 Mavericks showed up to watch ‘Top Speed’. Very

impressive turnout. The show was quite enjoyable, watching

Lucas Luhr driving around Road Atlanta (175 MPH on Turn 12?)

in the GT3RS to Marla Streb taking a mountain bike down the

bobsled course. Double thumbs up from this viewer! You can

check out details at http://www.topspeedfilm.com. It did take me

about 15 minutes after walking out of the OMNI to completely

regain my balance.

Afterwards, many of us headed over to a wonderful meal at

Caravan to Hope!

by Lanean Hughes

On Saturday, September 6, 2003, several

Maverick members and friends headed to

Mineral Wells to deliver items for the

shelter. With 2 suburbans, 1 Explorer, 1 station

wagon, 2 trucks and a van, we not only took up

lots of space on 820 and I-20, but also at the

shelter upon arrival.

Many thanks to Carol Pierce of Boardwalk

Porsche who spearheaded the staff there for

donations, to Larry Irby/BWP for the use of his

suburban, Bill and Sharron Dawson, Kevin

Procaccino and their 3 great children, Brian

Scudder, Clara Lewis and granddaughter

Kristen, Mimi & Geneva Spreen, Wendy

Shoffit, and Cody Sears (for the use of

his truck).

...help those who turn to us

in times of need...

After our visit to the shelter where we

took notes of what is needed and what we

can do to continue our support, we stopped

off at the MineralRing to see the TT folks.

Then we headed to Farmhouse Restaurant

in Cool, Texas for some great home

cooked food!

The staff at Hope sincerely appreciate

our donations, and as they said “It is

through generous donations like yours

that we are able to help those who turn to

us in times of need!”

We will be making another trip to the

shelter soon, watch Slipstream for details!!

British GP & Porsche Super Cup Race

By Steve Patti

Photo by Steve Patti

For 7 days in July, the UK becomes the place to be for

professional golf and motor sports -- The British Open, the

Goodwood Festival of Speed, and The British Grand Prix at

Silverstone. For those of us blessed with the opportunity to travel

frequently to Europe, attending even one of these events would be

a treat. And so it was that a call from one of my clients for a

meeting in Paris meant landing in the UK on the weekend of The

British Grand Prix. I immediately went to work to locate a ticket

for this event, despite its being officially “sold out” for six months

in advance. A call to a UK ticket broker and $400 later I had a

grandstand seat on Turn 1 and a parking pass.

...I got to wear my PCA Club Race

t-shirt and mingle with the locals...

Buried in the 4-race line up was a Porsche Super Cup race

just two hours before the F1 race and it would be my first chance

to see the latest 996GT3 Cup cars in action live on European soil.

Truth be known, I think I wanted to see the Super Cup race more

than the other 3 races that day, including the F1 race. The event

began with the Vodaphone Maserati challenge (GT race) at 9am,

followed by the Porsche Super Cup race at 11am, followed by the

F1 race at 1pm, and a vintage/antique race at 4pm.

The journey to Silverstone from my hotel in London at 6am

on a Sunday morning got the adrenaline pumping, including an

express train to Heathrow airport for the rental car, a 70 mile

Photo by Steve Patti

The Super Cup race was everything I imagined including

door-to-door contact in short carousels, cars off the track,

textbook blocking moves exiting corners, and the roar of

Porsche’s latest water-cooled power plants. There was even one

incidence that us air-cooled guys tend to forget about – a blown

radiator that dumped coolant on the track (luckily the driver

took the car off line). There was one American driver (Long)

who started in the middle of the pack for the UPS sponsored

team and he fought courageously to 4th place with two laps

left but couldn’t quite get himself a podium finish (no American

has a podium finish in the 2003 Cup season). The only

disappointment was that the Super Cup race was only 12 laps

(equivalent to PCA Sprint).

The winner of the race was Frank Stippler, a former champion

and three-time race winner this season. His silver GT3 Cup was

under heavy pursuit during the entire race after he made a

couple of unbelievable passes to take the lead and then he had to

pull out all the stops to defend his position against a very fast lead

pack. As an aside, Frank was the guy who set-up the suspension

on my Carrera RS ClubSport PCA race car (so no more jokes

about all the nasty negative camber!)

There’s a lot to like about the cars, tracks, and motor sport

culture in Europe and for one day I got to wear my PCA Club

Race t-shirt and mingle with the locals. The entire experience

reminded me that while we don’t have a Super Cup series in

the USA, PCA Club Racing does give us amateurs an alternative

for getting our Porsche speed fix without expensive trips across

the pond.

drive at speeds of over 100 mph on the M40 motorway, and a 30

minute “park and ride” excursion on a double-decker bus. Oh, by

the way, I got passed on the M40 by a new 2003 Mercedes E55

doing 120mph and I still managed to snap a digital picture of him

blowing by, only to park two cars away from him at the track park

and ride!

While the facilities at Silverstone are very basic (not nearly as

high tech as the Nurburgring), you get a sense of the history of

this old airfield. A careful review of the track map, with its

deceiving elevation changes and decreasing radius turns, and you

know that it’s a PCA Club Racer’s dream.

Time Trial #4 at Mineral Wells

by Mike Bridges

Ever missed a couple of events, then when you came back you just

couldn't believe how much fun they were? Well, due to family

commitments I missed the last two time trials, and couldn't believe

what an absolute blast I had when I returned! Turnout was pretty light,

only 30 cars (come on, people, WHERE ARE YOU??). As a result, we got

to run 6 laps in the morning and 4 in the afternoon, yippee!

My run group was working first, and then running, so I got to work

the start/finish line, which is usually not dull, and especially this time! For

those of you who haven't run at a time trial, if you go off course, that's a

DNF (did not finish). If you DNF twice in the same spot (which I've

done), you get the black flag at start/finish to come off course, then you

go back out with an instructor to show you what you're doing wrong. Of

course, if you DNF AT the start/finish line, that puts you in close proximity

to the course workers (got to have the flags reasonably close to be

in the driver's field of view). When you DNF there multiple times, we're

likely to start throwing the black flag at you, literally! Word to the drivers,

WATCH THE FLAGS! Also to the course workers, if a Red flag is called,

don't just stand at the station and hold the red flag up, the driver is likely

to miss it. WAVE it like crazy and get into the driver's field of view (not

dangerously, of course). OK, off my soapbox.

NEVER gotten right! Decreasing radius, off-camber, just an absolute ball

to drive! My best time of the morning was 70.3xx seconds, so my goal for

the afternoon was to break into the sixties. Alas,‘twas not to be, as I managed

to get down to a 70.30x, but no better. On the other hand, I had two

...and blast off again to turn 4 which

I’ve NEVER gotten right...

consolations: first, I was one of the few to improve their times in the afternoon

(which means I was getting better on the course more than the

increased temps were slowing me down), and I took top time in my class!

Of course, I was also mid-pack and caboose as well (the only one in OA).

I can't wait for the next one!

Mike Bridges “sharing” the track with Tom Snodgrass.

Course #1 is my favorite, especially in the ‘Vette. It's the fastest, especially

going into turn 3, the hairpin. I got it right twice, actually touching

on the rev limiter in 3rd gear, about 108-110 mph (not paying real close

attention to the speedometer!). Then it's HARD on the brakes, down to

2nd gear, around the hairpin, and blast off again to turn 4, which I've

Tech Session at Boardwalk Porsche

by Michael Wingfield

On Saturday morning, September 13, about 30 Maverick Region

members descended on Boardwalk Porsche for the Boardwalk

Tech Session. Besides being greeted by the friendly staff at

Boardwalk Porsche, Maverick members found an ample supply of

donuts, kolaches, orange juice, hot cocoa, and coffee to help wake up to

the business of learning about cars.

The format of this event was slightly different than some tech

sessions. This event was operated under a walk, look, and ask (Q&A)

format rather than a formal presentation of a topic. To help spawn

questions, Boardwalk Porsche had several cars on display in the service

area, along with some automotive-related product and service vendors.

Up on the lifts within the service area, sat a Silver Cayenne S, a

black GT3, and a black 996 without an engine. The Cayenne served as

the subject vehicle for John Gladwill’s Q&A on the new all-wheel drive

...sent the airbag and

mounting bracket soaring...

suspension of the Cayenne. The GT3 served as the subject for Q&A for

the composite brake components on this car. A new caliper, composite

rotor and brake pads were displayed beside the GT3. Having replaced

several rotors on my 951, I was amazed at the light weight of the

composite rotor and the six-piston caliper. Finally, for anyone who

wondered what a 996 would look like without an engine, one simply

had to look up under the rear of the car. Also on display in the service

area was a black Cayenne Turbo and a silver GT2.

Not only did Boardwalk host show-and-tell on the cars in the

service bay, but also they had several product vendors and representatives

to answer questions about their individual wares. Pirelli Tires, Mobil-1

Oil, and Xtreme Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) each had product and

service information, as well as lots of free goodies available to give to the

inquisitive individual.

The gentlemen from Xtreme PDR held a drawing for a free PDR

repair as a demonstration of their service. If you ever had a dent on

your Porsche, now was the time to show it off as the technicians

reviewed each dent in each car presented for service and drew an

owner’s name from the hat. Dennis Chamberlain was the lucky winner

of the free demonstration

PDR and pulled

his maroon Boxster

into the service bay for

all to see. Within a few

short minutes, the

guys from Xtreme

PDR had removed the

left air intake (with

some assistance from

John Gladwill, Porsche

Master Technician),

and smoothed out the

dent in the left rear

fender of Dennis’

Boxster as good as

new. The Xtreme

PDR guys are at

Boardwalk Porsche

every Wednesday, so if General Manager, Bobby Rodriguez

you have a PDR need,

call a service advisor and schedule an appointment.

Cliff Blackshear, the Shop Foreman, then lead everyone outside for

a demonstration of an airbag deployment. Cliff gave us some

background on how airbags work, and then asked us to stand clear of

the bag. John Gladwill next set off the airbag, which came from the

passenger side of a 996. The sound of the explosion was deafening!

Likewise, the force of the charge sent the airbag and mounting bracket

soaring over ten feet straight up in the air, where it then floated down to

the ground like a hot air balloon. Boardwalk Porsche President Bobby

Rodriguez encouraged further discussion by relating a personal story of

having been on a car when the airbags deployed. Other stories then

began to circulate among those persons who had actually experienced

similar airbag deployments in accident situations. I found it

remarkable that those relating the stories said they never heard the

explosion of the airbag as the din of metal crashing and glass breaking

drowned out sound of

the airbag charge. After

hearing several such

stories, I count myself

blessed to have never

experienced such a

situation.

Finally, it was time

to distribute the many

door prizes provided by

Boardwalk Porsche,

Mobil-1, and Pirelli.

Among the door prizes of

shirts, caps, jackets, and

Frisbees, were some very

elegant gifts including a

miniature model car collection

set, a talking

Boxster (which speaks in

three languages), Pirelli

calendars, and designer

racing watches.

Thanks again to Boardwalk Porsche (Bobby Rodriguez, Larry Irby,

John Gladwill, Rick Jordan, Cliff Backshear, Hans Hoffmann, Carol

Pierce, and Tracy Rathburn), and others that took time away from their

Saturday to play host to some inquisitive Mavericks. Likewise, thanks to

Xtreme PDR, Mobil-1, and Pirelli for participating in the tech session.

Porsche Announces 911 Turbo Cabriolet

by Porsche Cars North America

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, July 22, 2003 --- Porsche has

announced it will produce the first 911 Turbo Cabriolet since

1989. Arriving at Porsche dealerships in the fall of this year, the

2004 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet is based on the existing

Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe, incorporating the Coupe's engine,

body structure, four-wheel drive system, chassis, and suspension

and brake systems

Power for the new 911 Turbo Cabriolet, transferred through

either the manual six-speed or optional five-speed Tiptronic

automatic transmission, comes from a twin-turbocharged 3.6-

liter six-cylinder engine producing 415 (SAE) horsepower. It

propels the car from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 4.3 seconds

and to a top track speed of 189 mph (305 km/h).

Taking styling features from the 911 Turbo Coupe, the

Cabriolet incorporates the Coupe's three large front air intake

cooling scoops, intercooler air intakes in the rear side panels, and

a rear spoiler that deploys at 75 mph (120 km/h) and retracts

at 55 mph (80 km/h). As found on all current Porsche 911

Cabriolets, the Turbo Cabriolet is equipped with a power

convertible top that raises or lowers in just 20 seconds. To

maintain body stiffness, the 911 Turbo Cabriolet's structure is

enhanced with reinforced side-sills featuring body panels and

elements doubled in thickness, additional junction plates, and

shaft reinforcements behind the B pillar.

Like the Turbo Coupe and all Porsche Carrera® 4 models, the

Turbo Cabriolet's four-wheel drive system delivers from five to 40

percent of the engine power to the front wheels depending on

driving conditions. The new Turbo Cabriolet is also fitted with

the Porsche Stability Management (PSM) system as standard

equipment.

To ensure supreme stopping power at all times without the

slightest fading, the new Turbo Cabriolet comes with four-piston

fixed-caliper brakes plus inner-vented, cross-drilled brake discs

front and rear measuring 13.0 in. (330 millimeters) in diameter.

Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) are available as an

option, setting new standards in terms of brake response, fadefree

performance, low weight and a long service life. Eighteeninch

light alloy wheels with tires measuring 225/40 on the front

axle and 295/30 on the rear axle transfer the braking power to

the road.

The 911 Turbo Cabriolet comes with an extensive range of

standard equipment. This includes metallic paint, full leather

interior, a hardtop and wind deflector, Bose audio system and

Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system comprising

a double tuner, CD player, navigation system and trip computer.

It will be available beginning in October of this year starting at a

Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price of $128,200 U.S. and

$187,800 Canadian.

Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA), based in Atlanta,

Ga., and its subsidiary, Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd., are the

exclusive importers of Porsche vehicles for the United States and

Canada. A wholly owned, indirect subsidiary of Dr. Ing. h.c.F.

Porsche AG, PCNA employs approximately 200 people who

provide Porsche vehicles, parts, marketing and training for its 204

U.S. and Canadian dealers. They, in turn, provide Porsche owners

with best-in-class service.

Past performance does not guarantee future results. Value

Trust's inception date is 4/16/82. The investment return and principal

value of the fund will fluctuate so that an investor's shares,

when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost.

Calculations assume reinvestment of dividends and capital gains

distributions. Performance would have been lower if fees had not

been waived in various periods. The S&P 500 index is based on

common stock prices, including reinvestment of dividends and

capital gains distributions, and is generally considered representative

of the U.S. stock market. Source: Lipper Inc.
