out is the
have had on
e recently cleaned out a storage unit that
the club has rented for many years. Most
of what was found were extra copies of
Slipstream, old files and documents to be
shredded, and ancient technology items left there over
There was also treasure found in some old mementos
of our club. Yearly scrapbooks and documentation of
our club over the years were located in the dust among
those items that were way overdue for the dumpster.
The pictures and descriptions in these compilations
tell a story of how a club like ours evolves and adapts
over time. The Maverick Region members have been a
fun bunch throughout the years and I have the pictures
to prove it!
One thing that stands out throughout
these scrapbooks is the impact
that our women members have had
on this club. There has been at least
one woman on our Executive Committee
serving as President, VP,
Secretary, or Treasurer since the
beginning of the Maverick Region in
1963. Women from this club on both
local and national levels have been
creating and implementing brilliant
ideas, competing in driving events, and managing the
Maverick Region from its inception to the organization
we have today. Many of these very long-tenured members
are still active in the club and I see them at many
of our events. After diving into our archives, I have an
entirely new level of respect for the contribution they
have made to our region over the years.
As I look at the pictures and yearly activity outlines
in these collections, I think about where we are today
as an organization. Except for the excessive amounts
of polyester and quite prominent sideburns, not much
has changed with the goals and spirit of this club. We
just have a much bigger challenge today to compete
with the unlimited choices that our members have for
their attention and time, both online and in the physical
world. This challenge only becomes greater with
the next generation of Maverick Region members.
The quality of our event offerings, newsletter and
social media is phenomenal today due to the continuous
innovation and enthusiasm of our event chairs and
volunteers. Member participation and excitement is
as high as it has ever been. Although there have been
questionable fashion trends over the years, the mantra
of our club has not changed since its inception, and I
hope that it never does. Driving Friendships!

MAV OF THE MONTH: Derrick Tate
Our Mav of the Month for March 2018 is Derrick
Tate. Derrick joined PCA last year and became actively
involved in many of our Maverick Region events, most
notably our Coffee Meets. Many of you will also
recognize this young man, as he is always greeting
Maverick members with a warm smile, eager to please,
and be of assistance whether greeting at the Founders
Day Celebration, Mavs & Mochas, or helping get your
car photographed at our December People’s Choice
Car Show in Highland Park Village. Since joining the
region, Derrick has participated in several tours,
monthly socials, and of course Mavs & Mochas. Derrick
also took it upon himself to start showing up to our
monthly board meetings
offering to help in any
capacity he could, and as a
matter of fact, effective
this month, Derrick
becomes Co-Chair of our
Coffee Meets. Derrick is
yet another example of
the enthusiasm that is
catching on, making him
the face of our club’s
on a job well done!

Mavs & Mochas: Southlake and Watters Creek in the Cold!
By Jason Oliver, Porsche 996 Owner and Mark Palmer, Porsche 993 Host
anuary: 20 Years of the 996
It was a warm reception for
the Porsche 996 on a chilly
January morning. At least 31 of
the early hydrated 911s were in attendance,
which was roughly one 996 for every temperature
degree that morning. Brisk. Cool.
Frosty. Choose an adjective, it was cold.
Cold start to the morning
(Photo by Landon Stogner)
Celebrating the 20th
anniversary of the 996,
Southlake Town Square
was awash with the full
spectrum of the first
water-cooled 911s, from
early models built in 1998
to those produced up
As an owner of an
early 996, I’m a little biased and madly in love with
the sometimes-maligned generation of the 911. The
Porsche 996 was a new design by Pinky Lai. It was the
first new 911 that was completely redesigned, with little
being carried over from the previous 993 models. All
new body work, interior, and the aforementioned first
water-cooled engine in a 911.
By 9 am, a quick walk around the square allowed us
to eye-spy everything and anything 996, including base
C2s, C4s, Gen 1s, Gen 2s, Turbos, Coupés, Cabriolets,
4Ss, and an X50 (a Turbo with larger turbochargers
and intercoolers providing a 30-hp increase). All were
represented and welcomed, with a cup of joe from Starbucks
and a donut personally handed out by Mav of the
Year Bill Orr himself.
Besides the first-generation H2O stars of the show,
there were also the usual suspects in attendance, with
the exception of a random drive-by, a 1991 964 reimagined
by Singer Vehicle Design. As expected, the Singer
quickly drew a crowd, worthy of any celebrity/paparazzi
swarm fest, and we are all looking forward to seeing
more of it at future events.
Early 996 arrivals (Photo by Andrew Barber)
All told, at last count, over 120 cars braved the 30°
morning in Southlake, which means we are all either
crazy about our cars, or we REALLY like coffee and
ebruary: 25 Years of the 993
The conditions weren’t great
but the spirit of the Mavs & Mochas
members overcame all that
mother nature served up Saturday morning,
February 10, and made for a great event.
We had everything Saturday: 117 great cars,
Frogg coffee, Mr. 993 Rudy Mancinas, raffle
winners for The Pad Keeper, and 25 awesome 993s.
To everyone that came out: thank you! Please plan
on attending the March meeting at Zims Autotechnik
and invite your Porsche friends. I want to give a special
shout out to Rudy Mancinas who came up from
Houston in his beautiful 993 to support his fellow 993
owners and the Mavs.

Another special thank you to David Etter, The Pad
Keeper, for donating four Pad Keepers along with a
nice banner for the event. Frogg Coffee Bar & Creperie
was very accommodating, thank you.

Last, to everyone that helped make it all happen
and braved the early morning weather to put out parking
cones, assist drivers in parking, put out tables and
banners, and anything else that needed to happen….

Kruder’s Cars & Conversations
By Bill Kruder, Region Advertising Chair
his month’s “conversation”
started with an
email back in October
from a member asking
if it would be OK to join us at our
Mavs & Mochas, even though she
would be in her daily driver. She
briefly mentioned how she had a
Porsche that had not been driven
for some time, and how she was
once active in PCA and was looking
to reconnect. Well, after assuring
her that we would love to have her
attend, a few emails later I learned
she had an 80s SC, so I told her to
look me up that morning and we
would chat. With that, our connection
was in motion.
So here is the next individual in
my series of “conversations” I would
like to share with you . . .
Olga Carolyn Stain Taylor,
Porsche Enthusiast since 1978,
Owner today of a
1980 911 SC Targa
Bill Kruder: So are you originally
Olga Taylor: No, I was born in
D.C. I was a baby when we moved to
Houston, but I grew up in the San
Joaquin Valley, specifically Fresno.
BK: So how did you end up living
OT: Well after graduating college
let’s just say I moved a lot
(laughing). I got a job at Kraft
Foods in Buena Park as a food
chemist and had a few promotions
when an opportunity came up with
Frito Lay at Exchange Park in Dallas.
I was here for several months
before they moved me back to L.A.
as a QA Manager. It wasn’t till 1988
that I moved here permanently,
first as a Field Industrial Engineer,
then as Area Manager.
“Sleeping Beauty” from 1996 to
BK: I understand that after all the
different positions that you had as a
chemist and production manager, you
have a whole different career?
OT: Yes, in 1993 I started “New
Paradigms,” a consulting company
that specializes in organization development.
I make sure people play
well together (laughing). Today, I
mainly work on executive coaching,
training, and I teach at SMU.
BK: So how did you get your passion
OT: I’d have to blame my dad.
When were kids he had a manual
Ford Falcon that he would drive
briskly down the streets, surprisingly
with us kids in the car. Talk
about something you would never
do today! But those were different
times. As a kid, I was not sure about
fast driving, but my dad was always
interested in fast cars and I guess
that just stuck.
BK: So what was your first experience
OT: My dad’s friend saw me
walking home from middle school
and offered me a ride in his 911 -- it
was such a thrill. Later, I bought my
brother’s friend’s black 1974 914/4
after he took it out on the track
for a test drive. This was in 1978. I
drove the 914 for some time after
that till my boss thought I should
have another car.
BK: And did that work out?
OT: Well this was about 1984.
We went to Redondo Porsche, I
told them how much I would pay,
and about two weeks later, for my
30th birthday, I was now the owner
of two Porsches. They had located
my “baby,” the 1980 SC Targa in
BK: And I understand your cars are
not garage queens?
OT: Oh no! When I own cars I
drive them -- from 1984 thru 1996
I put on over 100k miles on “Baby.”
She took on the Pacific coast, wine
country, and mountains, as well as
PCA events: Tours, Rallies, Track,
Touring at Mount Hood National Forest
BK: So after 1996?
OT: Well let’s just say that owning
and driving a Porsche just
makes one happy; how can it not,
right? You have to just smile each
and every time you head out. But
then life gets complicated, and I
went through a very heartbreaking
time. So, I just parked it and never
looked at it again. As I said, a lot
was going on, and in 2007 I lost my
husband, so again that just was not
BK: And what made you want to
bring the car out after 21 years?
OT: Well, last September I had
a friend over to the house, and he
saw this car covered in the garage
and asked what it was. I uncovered
it and he said, “Olga why don’t you
BK: OK so I know the story gets good
OT: It really does. I had read
about this PCA group who gather
for coffee every month and I
thought maybe I should just go see
what goes on and meet them. I had
been very active in the PCA
club in Oregon back in 1985
till moving here in 1988.
BK: Yes I remember you sending
me an email asking if you
could drive over to meet us.
OT: And I did, I drove over
to Bedford, the Texas Harley
Dealership, in my Honda
Pilot, and upon arriving was
directed to the “non-Porsche” lot
(laughing). But hey, I get it! So, I
parked and started walking the lot
among more Porsches that I had
ever seen in one place for some
time. I casually just started to talk to
some of the owners, when I ran into
Frank Briggs and told him I had a
car that had not been driven in 20
years. Well Frank said we better do
something about that! So before I
knew it he was at my house, checking
the oil, and bringing fresh gas
and a battery. With a crank or two it
started! It had not run since 1996.
With that, Frank shut it down and
recommended that I get the car
in for service. He recommended
Nate, Rick, and Ricky at Fifth Gear.
So we flat bedded it off to them.
Frank went over there and supervised
the whole process for me.
BK: And when was the car ready to
OT: “Baby” became road worthy
the day before Thanksgiving.
I wasn’t even sure I knew how to
drive a stick after 20 years. Then,
the best part was being able to attend
Founders Day Mavs & Mochas
with some 200 other cars. Let’s
just say all the happiness I had
enjoyed, and yet missed, was
And there you have it: yet
another example of “driving
friendships,” and what it means
to not only own a Porsche but
how that simple pleasure
changes lives forever.
Motoring Mavs at Mayo: Saturday Morning With Porsches
By Bill Kruder, Region Coffee Meets Co-Chair
Photo by Jim Hirsch
ith the success of Mavs & Mochas (M & M)
-- sponsored by our friends at Park Place
Porsche – we are now averaging nearly 120
cars a month, and are excited to announce
another new monthly event for you to attend.
Starting in March we will kick off our newest
event: Motoring Mavs at Mayo, sponsored by Mayo
Performance. This event will be held every third
Saturday of the month, and starting time will be 9:11
am at Mayo Performance in Euless.
Now you might wonder what the difference is
between M & M and Motoring Mavs at Mayo. Well, M &
M is held the second Saturday of the month and varies
and West in
at Mayo will
be the third
Saturday of the
month, and will
always be at the
garage. As Ed says, “we see this event focused around
shop talk.” More information can be found at http://
mav.pca.org/go/mmm. In addition, an online store
has been created specifically to allow you to purchase
merchandise with the MMaM logo. You can browse and
order those items at www.zazzle.com/motoring_mavs.
So there you have it. If you have been disappointed
in not being able to attend Mavs & Mochas, you now
have another option to get your coffee fix and enjoy
even more great Porsches. We look forward to seeing
you there, and thank Mayo Performance for their
partnership in this new monthly event!

2018 Maverick Region All Member Party
By Jim Hirsch, Slipstream Editor with observations by Josh Gutjahr
Photos by Andrew Barber
he longtime Maverick Region motto of
“Driving Friendships” was definitely in evidence
to the members who attended the All
Member Party (AMP) held on January 27.
Our Maverick Region made Hackberry Country
Club the place to be as over 120 Porsche vehicles made
the drive along with over 250 PCA friends in attendance
for the afternoon.
Fortunately the weather cooperated for our event
once again and allowed members to spend lots of
time outside enjoying the parking lot full of members’
Porsches of all years and models.
As members made their way inside, they were greeted
and directed to the area filled with tables of event
information as well as a winderful selection of appetizers
Our Region President, David Robertson, did a masterful
job sharing information about our club and what
members can expect in the way of numerous activities
and information sources.
Beyond great food and libations, the conversations
heard throughout the afternoon were those of new and
old friends sharing good times together.
Our Region Social Chair, Tracy Robertson, did a
wonderful job of putting this event together for our
new and current members to enjoy. This is the final
event coordination for Tracy as she turns over the Social
reins to Debi Gibson and gets a well deserved
break. Thank you Tracy for your years of service as the
Region’s Social Chair!
A new Maverick Region member, Josh Gutjahr,
attended with Parker Ackerman and shared these
Parker and I were a little nervous about coming
to this event because we were unsure as to how the
reception would be. This marks my second Maverick
Region event, with the first one being an Autocross.
For Parker this would be her first car event EVER.
We arrived a little late, but wasted no time diving
into the great food and drink that was there. I met a
couple of familiar faces, and mingled with new ones
Everyone was so friendly and outgoing, and that
made the world of difference for us. We got so wrapped
up in conversation, that I didn’t have time to show
Parker all the cars! I barely was able to scratch the
surface on the flat-6 configuration. I also forgot to
get the pictures that I promised both our parents. Oh
well, there’ll be other times. I enjoyed learning about
all the upcoming car events, such as the Mavs & Mochas
and the tours. Overall we had a great time and
will be coming out to more events as they arise. Being
from Tyler it’s hard sometimes to get to the Maverick
Region events, but I’m going to try at least one event
a month. Parker had a great time as well, and the
Mavericks definitely made a great impression on her.

We’re looking forward to kicking off
2018 with a “Shine & Show” event, where a “clean car”
is all you need. Concours d’Elegance this is not. Bring
your clean Porsche and let our judges rate your cleaning
Accessing the vast “think tank” of car show experience
from the club, veteran car show participants Ed
Mayo and Alan Bambina will assist the judges and help
set the expectations of participants.
All members will receive a club “enews” email regarding
registration, volunteers needed for judges, and
training for judges and participants. We will also post
that information on our web site at http://mav.pca.

lease join us for our third annual Easter
gimmick rally: the Bunny Hop Road Rally
(BHRR) on Saturday, April 7. Sign-in is at
9 am in the Costco parking lot at 11220
Dallas Parkway in Frisco, with first car out shortly after
the drivers’ meeting at 9:30. We will end at the Hard
Eight BBQ in The Colony for libation and lunch, a recap
of the fun-filled route, and our prestigious award
ceremony! The competition for the DLBF (Dead Last
But Finished) Award is always fierce!
If you joined us in the past for either our Halloween
or Easter gimmick rallies, you know how much fun we
have – your rallymeisters continue to hone their bag
of gimmicks to maintain the excitement and competition,
and this rally will assuredly introduce some new
“hops” down that path. If you are new to gimmick rallying,
we assure you that it will be an enjoyable morning.
Our goal is to keep everyone on the route, so the drive
instructions are not (too) cryptic, as long as you follow
a few basic rules. We have planned the rally to go
from Frisco to The Colony, traveling over 60 miles and
staying on paved back roads, out of the main stream of
traffic as much as possible.
Kurt Scaggs, our event ads designer,
has created yet another unique logo
for this first Porsche Promenade.
All participants will receive a
commemorative decal on the day of the
car show. In addition, an online store
has been created specifically to allow
you to purchase other merchandise with
the same commemorative logo. You can
browse and order those items at
We’re looking forward to a great turnout for this
first Concours event of 2018.

Maverick Rally Series: Bunny Hop Road Rally Preview
By George Luxbacher and Don Sebert, Region Rally Co-Chairs
Two people at a minimum should be in each car:
a driver and a navigator. Pre-registration is strongly
encouraged; we will have over thirty cars participating,
leaving at one- to two-minute intervals from our starting
point, and pre-registration helps in our planning.
We will send out General Instructions prior to the rally
as well – it helps to
understand the basic
rules and guidance
before rally day.
We look forward
to seeing you at the
BHRR!! Contact us
with any questions.

Maverick Monthly Social: Silver Fox in Grapevine
By Dan Amado
hey’re baaaack!! Yes, we are very happy that after a very busy holiday season, the popular Monthly
Socials are back for our members’ enjoyment and included in the Maverick Events Calendar.
There was a great turnout of members at the fabulous Grapevine Silver Fox restaurant on Thursday,
February 8. It was exciting to get together with so many familiar faces and extend our welcome to the
new attendees. As usual, everyone was very chatty, catching up with each other, sharing their stories, and welcoming
the new attendees.
The Silver Fox setting is perfect since they dedicate an entire private area by the bar, with assigned servers to
take good care of us. Almost everybody stayed to enjoy the terrific food and friendly service, after breaking the ice
with some of our favorite beverages.
We are already working hard to fill the rest of the calendar which promises to continue in the tradition of these
fun and friendly events.
We look forward to seeing you at the next Monthly Social event which will be held at the The Lion & Crown Pub
located in the Watters Creek shopping area in Allen. Check for more details in the ad on page 17.

Maverick Tour Series: Mitas Hill Vineyards Preview
By Mark Pitarresi, Region Tours Chair
pring is right around the corner, and it’s
time to get your Porsche in order for a great
tour season. We have to get those Porsches
waxed or coated in time for bug season!
Our first Tour, “Wine M Up, Blow M Out!” is scheduled
for Sunday, March 25, which is the first official
weekend of spring. We have a great drive lined up, and
it’s a new route! The roads on this tour are the most
underpopulated that I have experienced on a Maverick
Tour, well at least since I have been attending them.
You will experience a great country drive in the lesspopulated
areas northeast of Dallas. At the time this
article was written, there was no construction on this
route. The Tour starts at Tom Thumb, 3070 N Goliad
Street, in Rockwall, Tx 75087. We will start the First
Timers’ Drivers’ Briefing at 9:45 am. We recommend
first time tour attendees to arrive no later than 9:30 so
they have time to get signed in and listen to the First
Timers’ Drivers’ Briefing.
Most of our tour attendees arrive early to socialize
and check out all the different types of Porsches that
attend these tours. Arriving early also helps our volunteers
in signing everyone in on time. Our normal Drivers’
Briefing will begin at 10:00, and then we will head
for our destination shortly afterward. The drive is 71.5
miles and will last approximately an hour and forty-five
minutes. Our Tour ends at Mitas Hill Vineyard, 2300
Vineyard Hill Lane, in McKinney, TX 75071.
Registration for this tour will be different than past
tours. You will need to register on our web site at mav.
pca.org/Events/Tours.asp. Registration will open up
one month before the tour. If you don’t already have
an account with Clubregistration.net you will need to
follow the instructions on Clubregistration.net to set
up an account. Once registered we will send out an
email on the third day before the tour with all the information
that you need to attend.
A second change
that we have implemented
in the tour
program is the Vintage
Class. This new
class will offer a more
relaxed driving experience
group. It will be your
choice to drive in the
Vintage Class or the Modern Class regardless of what
type of Porsche you drive. You will be able to make this
selection when signing up for the Tour.
We will be accepting donations to Patriot Paws Charity
at the sign-in table. The mission of Patriot Paws is to
train and provide service dogs of the highest quality at
no cost to disabled American veterans and others with
mobile disabilities. You can learn more about our clubs
preferred charity at http://mav.pca.org/about/charity/.
We look forward to seeing everyone on this Tour!

Five-Speed Chatter: Weihnachtsporsche Schätze
By Ash Seidl-Staley
he holidays are a special
time. Lots of good
food and plenty of great
times spent with family
and friends. I have also found that
it is easy to question the lengths of
November, December, and the first
half of January. Sometimes vacations,
trips, and family get togethers
are not so relaxing. This past
holiday season I was thankful I got
to relax—albeit only a little—but I
was even happier that I got to spend
a bunch of time with my family.
I was also quite pleased with the
Christmas Porsche treasures Christian
and I received from Santa. I
wish to share with you what we acquired,
not just to reveal our cool
Porsche collectables, but for you to
see the wide range of toy companies
currently working with Porsche.
Who knows, this discussion might
give you some ideas for the handful
of birthdays, anniversaries, and bar
mitzvas coming up this year.
A few years back I believe I relayed
my utter fascination at the
fact that Porsche and LEGO have
collaborated and developed toys
based on some of the
latest 911s. I mean,
back when I was a
kid in the mid 90s,
I would have sold
all my little sister’s
teeth to the tooth
fairy in one night for
a LEGO GT1! And,
now, kids these days
have at least three
different Flying Lizard
to choose from. On
top of that, Playmobile,
and even Barbie
have come out with
As you can see
from the photo of
The most recent additions to the collection
our Christmas haul, Porsche has
developed toys and models with
even more companies than the
ones listed thus far. Right off the
bat, Hot Wheels, Revell, and Maisto
make sense; making toy cars is kind
of their thing. But if you ask anyone
that has tried to search for good
quality die-cast models these days,
he or she would tell you how difficult
it is to find the big ones, as well
as how long it could take to find
the specific model you desired. Hot
Wheels definitely makes things easy
on the consumer. They have made
truckloads of iconic, and often
flashy, 911s, Carrera GTs, and 959s
since the mid 70s, but again, unless
you shop online, you won’t be able
to find a specific model at any physical
store locations. It is very much
the luck of the draw when it comes
to toy shopping.
The same can easily be said for
Revell’s plastic and die cast models.
I had searched for a 914 model for at
least 10 years. Physical stores never
carried them (the clerk often said
“nine four-what?”), I always come
up short on eBay, and I never committed
to buying the pricey ones
I did find. As luck would have it I
found the two-in-one 914 pictured
at a Hobby Lobby in Rockwall. I
actually found two there—the only
two—so naturally I bought one for
myself, and the other as my Uncle’s
Don’t fret -- if toys and models
are not your thing, there are many
other Porsche collectibles and
memorabilia available with just a
quick search online. Banners, flags,
decals, clothes, posters, and books
galore flood retail websites. Sites
and apps like Pinterest and Instagram
even reveal how artsy and
creative people make their own
types of Porsche-inspired goods.
My Uncle seems to have a knack
for finding the perfect Porsche
gift. This year he got me the large,
framed 944 Turbo Specification
poster pictured. Not only does the
poster depict sketches of the car at
different profiles, but it also lists
the car’s class, body type, engine,
and top speed. My uncle knows me
No matter who you are or what
your style is, there is
a Porsche collectible
out there for you.
Many Mavericks already
display their memorabilia
can help in your
search as well. Speaking
of hanging, I
have to go find a
spot to hang my 944
Turbo poster . . . .

January Tech Session: Oils and Lubrication
By Mike O’Hare
o, how do you get a 15 year-old teenage boy
out of bed early on a Saturday morning?
Offer up the opportunity to learn more
about the cars he loves (dad too) and to
see some of these fine driving machines that our Mav
owners love so much.
Yep - my son Ian and I ran that play and headed
downtown for a wonderful experience at the Mav’s Tech
session hosted by Park Place Porsche, ExxonMobil, and
our own Mike-n-Michael’s (Mahoney and Baynton) pit
lane commentary. Upon arriving in the parking lot,
Ian was quick to call out all the members’ cool cars
– specifically the Kruder 356, along with the Barber
Carmine Red GT4, which was parked discretely in its
own little area of the dealership.
After half a dozen cups, hats and shirts were awarded,
and the 90-minute journey commenced with a fantastic
engagement of learning everything from refinery
processing to oil grades, viscosity levels, synthetic vs.
conventional, additives, and frequency of oil changes!
A special “thanks” is due to Mike Mahoney and his 30+
years of petroleum experience for helping to simplify
what is a very complex industry topic!

Maverick members toured the showroom and the shop area
to learn what services Park Place offers
Park Place Porsche GM Patrick Huston and Maverick Tech
Session Chair Michael Baynton welcome a sold-out session of
Maverick members interested in proper lubrication
Upon entering the showroom, the Park Place crew
and GM Patrick Huston greeted us with open arms.
We were all escorted upstairs into a classroom-setting
conference room that included an abundance of
fresh coffee, donuts and other fine edibles. Ian and I
took our seats towards the front of the class -- from his
perspective (and high school experience) the best seat
to be in, and less inclined to be called upon to answer
a tough question by the “teacher.”
The room was filled to capacity, and extra chairs
had to be brought in to accommodate the overflow of
excited Mav owners passionately waiting to learn about
proper lubrication and maintenance. The group was
greeted by Tech Session Chair Michael Baynton, who
introduced us to Porsche ExxonMobil rep Leanna
Almarines (“the teacher”), who would take us through
a very informative PowerPoint presentation that began
with asking the group some “simple” questions. I
learned that nothing gets hands in the air or responsive
shout-outs quicker than the offering of various Mobil 1
and Porsche trinkets for correct answers.
After the session, Patrick Huston offered everyone a
personally guided tour of the magnificent dealership,
including the sales floor, and--best of all--their expansive
service facility. I could see Ian’s (and almost everyone
else’s) eyes light up with excitement in hopes of
catching a glimpse of a 918, GT3, or GT4 in for service
or sitting on the sales floor waiting to be taken home
by some very fortunate owner. It was definitely our
lucky day, as all eyes feasted on not one but two 918s, a
few GT3s and GT4s, and a plethora of other beautiful
Porsches, including the new Panamera Sport Turismo.
As Ian and I headed out from a great morning he
was quick to tell me about his dream to someday have
his own Porsche dealership and personal collection
of the finest Porsche automobiles in existence. My
response: “Chase that dream and don’t ever forget to
change your oil frequently!”

ny Porsche is a true enthusiast’s car. A
classic Porsche may be considered more of a
driver’s car due to the analog nature of the
experience, while a modern Porsche may
be considered more of a performance car due to the
more advanced tech in the nature of the experience.
What all Maverick members can take away from
this is the fact that owning and driving any Porsche is
first and foremost an exceptional experience. So, what
might you consider as a next step to enjoy your Porsche
experience even more? I’m glad you asked!
The Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles is
providing Porsche enthusiasts an opportunity to better
understand the answer to the question,“What makes
a Porsche a Porsche?” The Porsche Effect exhibit
now at the museum explores the brand’s history and
enduring success, which have been made possible by
the distinctive design, engineering, advertising, and
racing triumphs of its products.
The exhibit encompasses five thematic
sections, each of which contains a combination
of automobiles, artifacts, archival material, film
footage, and visual reproductions.
Elements of Style addresses “what makes a Porsche
a Porsche” by tracing how the cars’ ideal proportions
have developed into an aesthetic archetype that
illustrates “the Porsche Effect.”
The Zuffenhausen and Beyond section explores
