Well just when you thought you had seen it all . . . you

get elected President.

Let me give you a little background. I like to call myself

the newest old member in the club. We joined the club in

the spring of 1996; think we went to a couple things, then

as we say, life gets in the way.

So, for the next 20 years we didn’t go to a thing . . . nothing.

Then in Spring 2015 this thing called Porsche DFW Cars

and Coffee began and I was all in. Before I knew it, I

became a monthly scout for the locations, and soon after

that the region decided to make it a club event. Mavs

& Mochas was born, and you guessed it: I was the guy.

Shortly after, Jim Hirsch asked me for a favor and that

led to me adding Advertising Chair to my existing Coffee

Meets Chair responsibilities. It’s been a great three years.

So; moral of the story? It’s never too late to get involved.

That being said, here I am today, President. It might

be one of the most humbling

things I have ever had the

privilege to undertake. Look

back at who has served as

President and you will quickly

see there are huge shoes to fill;

a legacy to maintain. With any

organization you always want

to leave those ahead of you in

great shape.

Let me tell you that our past

presidents have and done it

well. The club has never been

so successful, and I attribute it

to two things. One, what our

past board has accomplished from 1962 to 2019. And

two, our new members. Did you know that we average

25-30 new members a month? Think about that. We gain

over 300 club members every year. That’s more members

Board Botschaft: A New Perspective

By Bill Kruder, Region President

MAV OF THE MONTH:

Bill Orr

than we had in 1982 in total. No wonder PCA National

recognized the Maverick Region for Greatest Growth in

Membership for 2018!

So, join me in welcoming our new members and invite

them out to an event. If you know an old new member

who hasn’t participated in a while, encourage them to

come out too as the club continues to create something

for everybody.

We have lots planned for 2020 and I can’t wait to see

what the new year brings!

Lastly if there is an idea you have, a comment to make,

or an opinion to be shared, do not hesitate to contact us.

We welcome it all.

This month we are celebrating Bill Orr. For those of you who have never met

Bill in person, I assure you that you still know him very well for what he does for

our club. Bill is the “wizard behind the curtain;” he serves as our Marketing, Social

Media, and Calendar Chairs, not to mention the many other roles he takes on. His

efforts in large part earned us the PCA National Award for Best Website in 2019.

Most recently Bill was very involved, along with Debi Kruder, our Social Chair, in

developing and implementing the marketing strategy behind our 2019 Founders Day

and Silent Auction. In addition Bill provides us with weekly and monthly news and

trivia of everything Porsche. If you want to meet Bill in person, just look for the man

in the cap with the bag of Porsche Matchbox cars at our next Mav event! Thank you

Bill for your invaluable contributions to our Region, Zone, and PCA.

Founders Day 2019 Evening Recap

By Debi Kruder, Region Social Chair

photos by Michael Durovick, Chris Low, and Bill Middleton

Three Great Events in One Day came to a close with

the 57th Anniversary Founders Day Celebration that

took place at Porsche Grapevine Saturday evening,

December 7. The newest of the four Porsche dealerships

in DFW boasts a two-story venue with the latest design

and features, including a classic car shop. Not only

did they provide a gorgeous venue, their financial

support for the evening allowed us to pull out all the

stops with incredible food, open bar, and great friends!

Many thanks to Porsche Grapevine General Manager

Jordan Mizrach and his talented and helpful staff for

making the evening such

a success.

Nearly 300 members

began arriving as early as

6:30 pm in anticipation

of the fun! Outside,

many stopped to look at

the beautiful showcase of

eleven Porsche 914s each

unique in its own way,

all beautifully organized

by members Clay and

Betty Perrine (bringing

two of their own).

Inside, the event

started with a greeting from Region President David

Robertson, recognizing the 2018 PCA National Awards

earned: PCA Region of the Year, Membership Growth

Award, Best Website, Best Newsletter in class, and Best

Newsletter Cover.

Then we were encouraged to eat, drink, and enjoy

time with our fellow Mavericks, and that we did! It was

so exciting to meet so many new members who chose

this day to get to know us, and they had such amazing

things to say about the hospitality they received.

Can’t disagree . . . we were out driving friendships

in force, whether chatting in line with our mouths

watering over the best barbeque in Texas, admiring the

custom-made Porsche cookies, or having a drink from

the open bar, the night was filled with laughter, conversation, and plans for next year!

Many thanks to Co-Host Catering and Pecan Lodge for serving up a delicious feast of brisket, pulled pork,

fried chicken, mac and cheese, and all the fixings! Add in the peach cobbler, cupcakes, and cookies, and needless

to say, we were all smiling.

The evening came to a close with the announcement of the James Shoffit Award, election results, and a thank

you from our outgoing President. Good-bye hugs were given by many as he stepped down after three years of

leading our Maverick Region into the next decade. It was a memorable evening indeed!

Our annual Silent Auction for The Huffaker-Hughes Hope House, supported by the Maverick Region

Porsche Club of America, was again a huge success! This auction for the second year in a row was

offered online for our 3,000+ Mavericks to have the opportunity to participate! The results were

amazing: nearly $11,700 was raised on a goal of $10,000.

Many thanks must be given to two groups of people. First, our donors. We have some of the most

generous partners, advertisers, and members themselves who donated premium products and services!

Without them, there would be no silent auction. And second, the nearly 100 participants who purchased

the dozens of Porsche products, services, rare whiskeys, area gift certificates, and more!

FUN AUCTION TRIVIA

• Total Bids: 288

• Highest Bid Day: November 5

• Highest Bid Day Amount: $2,845

• Top Three Bidding Items: Attic Butler’s Ladder, Custom Porsche Table

by Peter Wen, and the French Room Dinner and Wine Tasting

• Item with the Highest Bid Amount: Expel Front End Clear Bra at $1800

• Highest Page Views in a Day: 845

The Hope House exists to eliminate domestic violence through intervention, offering shelter, counseling,

support, and education to promote the healing of abusive relationships. The Maverick Region is proud

to be a partner with this cause since 1993.

Founders Day 2019: Mavs & Mochas

by Matt Wilson

photos by Paul Moseley and Kendall Awtry

The December 7th Mavs & Mochas Founders Day

festivities began with the first of three events at the

NorthPark Mall Nordstrom location. This venue is

popular with generous parking availability, its central

Dallas location, and hot coffee available just inside. The

weather was sunny and mild making the event much

more enjoyable for the approx. 200 Porsche enthusiasts

in attendance. Row after row of the Nordstrom lot was

lined with cars participating in the People’s Choice car

show, as well as over a dozen 914s. As seems to be the

case with most Maverick events, it pays to show up early.

By the official start time of our event at 8:30, our reserved

lot was almost completely full!

beautiful white 997 GT2. This is a very rare car with less

than 200 brought to North America in 2008-2009. Since

I’m most familiar with the 997 generation of 911s, I can

appreciate the uniqueness of this car as I chatted with the

owner (Mark) about his car at length. He had owned the

car for only a few months and was enjoying it immensely.

What a find!

One of the other nice things about these events is

meeting people who are attending an event for the first

time, as was the case for Michael. He just bought a beautiful

guards red 996 GT3 and was asking about specifics on oil

changes. I explained the various event types and ways to

connect with other members. Based on his smile and

Some unique things about our Mavs & Mochas events are not only the camaraderie between Porsche

owners, but the variety of models and generations represented in the club. You will see anything from

air-cooled to water-cooled, rear-engine to mid-engine, and from vintage to current models on show.

It seems each time I attend, a new or unique car that

I have never seen before arrives; and this time it was a

enjoyment of sharing with other Porsche lovers - I’d say we

will see him at future Mavs & Mochas events!

Founders Day 2019: People’s Choice Car Show

by Scott Kellogg, Concours Chair

photos by Bill Middleton

Saturday was another fun and exciting

day for a Mavs & Mochas car show! Thank

you to all the participants for taking part and

supporting the club’s charity Hope House.

We had more than 200 cars present and

70 in the show. One of the highlights was the

feature model, the Porsche 914. It was so nice

seeing all these vehicles lined up together.

As the day went on, we had a large number

of people looking at the cars, sharing stories,

and just having a great time. Not to mention

shopping in Nordstroms, and enjoying a

nice espresso.

And now the moment you have all been

waiting for, the winners! The top ten cars chosen by the

people are:

Kenny Thaher’s 2016 Cayman

Greg Kleath’s 1981 911

Jeff Klaumann’s 1977 911

Michael Harling’s 1958 356

Richard Konkel’s 2018 911

Michael Beveridge’s 2005 911

Jason Burke’s 2019 Cayman

Clay Perrine’s 1974 914

Roberto Anderson’s 1963 356

Steve Wayne’s 1988 911

And of course, the President’s Choice, Jim Mango’s

1972 911S affectionately known as Kermit.

Thank you again to everyone who participated! You

all made it a great time for everyone.

Mavs Spotted at Plano Police Station . . .

by Rob Adams

. . . but only because they wanted to ensure that the

Plano Police Association’s Christmas Cops program is

a success once again this year. The program benefits less

fortunate Plano families during the Christmas Season by

not only helping families, but helping ensure a positive

interaction between the police department and citizens in

the community.

tree. Keeping a long line of the cars together through all

the lights is obviously impossible, but bystanders were no

doubt treated to a distinctive visual and aural experience!

But “the topper on the tree” is seeing the cars entering

the driveway of the Plano Police Department to drop off

the toys. Once there, Plano officers met the drivers with

a smile and helping hand, finally posing with the entire

While the police association places collection boxes at

local businesses around Plano, the Mavs do things a little

differently. A large group of Mavs made their contribution

by loading their Porsches with new, unwrapped toys to be

delivered to the Plano Police Department via a 9.5-mile

route starting near Park Blvd. and the Dallas North Tollway.

The weather was perfect, with sunshine and cool temps.

As with any event involving upwards of 80 Porsches, just

hearing the low rumble of the idling cars at the staging

area is quite a sensation. The Christmas Convoy was led

by “Hagestad,”the 356 owned by Bill and Debi Kruder,

and adorned on this occasion with a fresh Christmas

group for a photo opp.

As in the past, our Maverick members were very

generous to this worthy cause. Our donations totaled

over 600 toys and cases of diapers, with an additional

$1,380 in gift cards.

This was only one of three major events that Mavs

participated in on Founders Day, and without a doubt it

was a popular one.

Footnote: I met two different first-time attendees at the

Nordstrom’s Peoples Choice Car Show earlier that day,

both of whom said it was their first event and certainly not

their last. It’s not just about the cars; it’s about the people.

2020 Maverick Region Executive Board Results

by Carey Spreen, Vice President

photos provided by Bill Middleton

Traditionally, the anniversary

of Maverick Region’s creation in

PCA is celebrated on what we call

Founders’ Day, which recognizes

the charter members who founded

our region back in November of

1962. The year 2019 marks 57

years of the continuing vitality of

Maverick Region.

Two of the traditions that take

place each year at Founders’ Day

are the Executive Board elections

and the announcement of the James

Shoffit Maverick of the Year, which

replaced the Richard F. Selcer

Memorial Award in 2017.

Board Elections

All members of Maverick Region,

either primary or affiliate, are

eligible to vote for our four elected

officers: President, Vice President,

Treasurer, and Secretary. Ballots

are printed in Slipstream and are

also available at the FoundersDay

banquet.

This year’s balloting resulted in

the following officers for 2020:

• President Bill Kruder

• Vice President Carey Spreen

• Treasurer Chris Flaugh

• Secretary Jennifer Parma

Thanks to all who voted! As a

member of the 2020 Board, I invite

you to visit any Maverick Region

events in 2020, whether it is a

competitive event, a tour, or a

strictly social event – we’re a

friendly group, no matter what type

of event you attend.

MAVERICK OF THE YEAR: Craig Janssen

Back in 1976, Maverick Region began presenting the Richard F. Selcer Memorial

Award, with the recipient chosen by the Region President. This award recognized singular

outstanding performance and service to the Region. In 2017, the Selcer Award was retired

and replaced by the James Shoffit Maverick of the Year award, which carries on the

tradition of the Selcer Award.

The 2019 Maverick of the Year award, after much deliberation by outgoing Region

President David Robertson, went to our Drivers’ Education series Chief Driving Instructor,

Craig Janssen. Craig has made huge strides this year to improve and update our DE

coaching program, and we greatly appreciate his continuing efforts to make the Maverick

Region DE program one of the best in PCA. Congratulations Craig – well deserved!

Event 10, the final Autocross event for 2019, was

also the Guns and Hoses Charity fund raiser. Maverick

Region PCA donated $1000 to the efforts, and between

onsite donors, the Equipe Rapide Sports Car Club, and

100% donations from all awards payout winners, the

group raised a record $6,000 for this important Police

and Fire Fighters organization. Police and Fire Fighters

from Garland, Mesquite, and Grand Prairie competed

in patrol cars and Tahoes for 2019 bragging rights in

classes mixed into the normal running of the event.

Porsche class winners included Igor Tulandin

defending top SUV time in his Cayenne GTS in class

P0, while Betty Perrine took class P1 in her 400,000+

Maverick Marktpreis: 911 Generation 997.2

by Peter Wen

Can a 10-year old car be considered a classic? Well yes, in

the case of 997.2 gen 911, it’s a modern classic! These 997

mid-cycle refreshed Porsches were produced from ’09-’12.

With the most senior members of this generation barely a

decade old, it’s too early to speculate how Porschephiles

will judge it in the future. However, market data looks

promising so far. Here is why you should pay attention.

Price: Surprise! The 997.2 is near or is already at the

bottom of its depreciation curve. Over the last 3 years,

pricing has definitely stabilized. Very encouraging news for

this young generation.

Performance: A modern Porsche must have its share of

the technological alphabet soup: PASM, PSM, PTV, PTM,

PDK, PCCB, VTG, and PSE. The 997.2 has them covered.

With the Sport Chrono Package and Sports Exhaust, even a

base Carrera can pull 0-60 mph in the mid-4-second range!

Look & Feel: The Goldilocks of Modern Porsches. It’s

neither too big nor too small. Its feedback-rich hydraulic

power steering feels just right. Better yet, it still looks like a

classic 911 - simply beautiful.

Variants: There are 23 different 911 variants! There is a

perfect 997.2 for every driver.

Scarcity: Launched at the height of the financial crisis,

there are significantly fewer 911s produced for this

generation than each of the four prior generations. Want

something even more rare? Try to find a Sport Classic or a

Speedster, only 50 and 356 units of each produced,

respectively.

Coffee, Cars & Conversation

by Bill Kruder

photos provided by author

Well, yet another one that took a

while to put all the pieces together.

It started about 2-3 years ago while

enjoying a Saturday morning at

Mayo’s. This guy walks up to me

with his red Porsche hat, smoking

his pipe, and starts talking about the

club to me. Then we fast forward

to the 70th Anniversary event at

Park Place, where he represented

1970 with his car (we had one year

model, each, from 1967

to 2019) and we manage

to chat a bit more. Now

it’s this fall and Park Place

calls, looking for an “old”

911 that would be a great

compare and contrast at

the launch of the 992 at

the Four Seasons. Well you

guessed it. His 1970 911E

gets the call, he shows up,

and that evening I think

there was more interest in

his car than the new one!

So here is the next in my

series of “conversations” I

would like to share with you . . .

John Halla, Member since 1973,

Owner 1970 911E and 1989 944 Turbo

Bill Kruder: So I know you are not

originally from here; where again?

John Halla: I am originally from

the Chicago area, specifically the

northern suburbs. Born in Chicago,

then we moved to Skokie, about 45

minutes northwest, before settling in

Evanston. That’s about 50 minutes

north along the lakeshore, where

we Iived until I went to college,

downstate.

BK: Where did you go to college?

JH: I went to the University of Illinois. My

first two years were at the Chicago campus,

which at the time, was out on Navy Pier;

this was before they built the big UIC

campus they have today. After my two

years, I transferred to U of I Champaign,

graduating with an engineering degree.

BK: So how did you end up in Dallas?

JH: I was going to get my Masters and I

had been accepted at SMU. I remember

it well; it was January 2 of ‘67. I get

off the plane with all my winter gear

on, to the delight of bright sunny day;

let’s just say the rest is history. Fun

fact: later that month Chicago had

the record setting storm that dropped

nearly two feet of snow. I still think I

made the right choice (smiling)!

John Halla and his 1970 911E

BK: Tell me a little about your career?

JH: Well, after graduating from SMU,

I was hired by Texas Instruments and

worked there for 13 years, 1969-

1982. After TI, I was out of a job for

about six months before a company

hired me to sell back into TI. I did

that until 1991. Later, I went on to

work for Unitron LP, in Technical

Sales, and retired in 2016.

BK: So what was your first car?

JH: That would have been a 1953

Buick convertible. Thing was, my dad

was a car salesman - he had his own

store in Evanston - and about every

six months he took my car to sell, and

gave me a different one to drive.

BK: Tell me about you dad’s car business?

JH: Well, dad sold Packards and

Buicks before WWII. After the war,

it was very difficult to buy a new car,

so he started selling used cars, as this

was where the business was.

BK: So tell me how you got interested

in Porsches?

JH: That would be 1971. I was living

in Austin and there was this home

stereo shop that some audiophiles

liked to go hang out at on Saturday

mornings. The owner had this pretty

Alfa Romeo. I was driving a Cadillac

Sedan Deville and then he bought

a 911T. We became friends and he

decided to take a trip to Chicago in

the 911, and we shared

driving duties. You can say

that was all it took to figure

out I didn’t need that big

Caddy (laughing).

BK: So when did you get

your first?

JH: That was 1973. I had

moved back to Dallas, and

Economy VW on Lemmon

Ave. had this blue Targa

for sale. I went to take a

look at it and it was ok,

but the salesman said you

really need to come back and take a

look at this other car that is coming

up for sale. So I did, and there sat

this 1970 911E. As luck would have

it, the owner wanted to sell it, as he

was being transferred to Anchorage,

Alaska. This owner was a cargo

pilot; he bought the car in Germany,

personally loaded and strapped the

car in his plane, and flew it home to

Texas. Another fun fact about the

car is that only three people had ever

driven it: the original owner, his wife,

and the mechanic. So it was a oneowner

911, with 12,400 miles on it.

BK: How did you become a member

of the club?

JH: After I bought the car I realized I

didn’t know another soul who owned one.

Then one day I was washing the car in the

driveway and this 911 Targa pulls up and

the guy says “. . . you going to this weekend’s

Autocross?” That guy was Maverick

member Steve Fallon. Again, as we say, the

rest is history; that was fall of 1973.

20 January


BK: And join the club you did! Tell me

about some of it?

JH: Well, when I first joined in 1973,

Barry Gibbs was our Region President;

Barry, his wife Joan, and I became

good friends. In 1977 I became

Region President (with 172 members

at the time), and the following year

I received the Selcer Award (today

this is the James Shoffit Award).

Then in 1979, I was the Tours Chair.

I contributed to Slipstream with a

monthly column, “Notes from the

Garage Wall,” from 1993-95. Lastly

in 2002, I was the Region Tech Chair.

Back in those days the club was all

about driving events, so I attended as

many as I could. I think I have driven

on about a dozen tracks here in Texas

and some out of state during Parades.

BK: Tell me about some of the Parades

you have attended?

JH: The first was in 1977 out in San

Diego. I have attended 16 Parades,

the last being in 2011.

BK: You not only went but you

participated, and did some winning?

JH: I did, back in 1978. I took 4th in class

in the Aspen Parade Autocross, which

that year was run on a racetrack. At the

DFW Parade in 1987, I got 6th Place in

class in the Tech Quiz, and the next year

at Pike’s Peak, took 5th Place in class,

again in the Tech Quiz. Then in 1997

the 911E took 1st Place in the Concours,

5th Place in the Autocross, and I won

1st Place in the Tech Quiz. In 1998, the

944 Turbo took 1st Place in class in the

Concours, along with a 1st Place in the

Men’s Turbocharged Modified class in

the Michelin Slalom Challenge.

BK: And I hear you have taken a few

factory trips?

JH: That I have. My first was in 1976; it

was part of the Treffen program and was

also the launch of the 924. Went back

in 1993 when they were doing testing

on the Tiptronic, in the 993. I got to

ride a few laps with a factory engineer/

driver. Then in 2011 went back to see

the Porsche Museum in Zuffenhausen.

Every month as I write these

interviews I think the same thing:

what if? What if I had not run into

this guy at Mayo’s; what if I had

not had the chance to invite him to

show his car at Park Place for the

992 launch?

So if and when you meet someone

new, don’t miss out on “Driving

Friendships!”

Twenty Years of Maverick Club Racing

by Wendy Shoffit

provided by Wendy Shoffit and David Hodges

Maverick Region held its very first Club Race ever

back in 1999 at the Hallett Motor Racing Circuit in

Hallett, OK. At the time it was one of the only tracks

close enough to our region to have an event. Boy, have

the past twenty years changed things! We now have

two full tracks in the north Texas area and several more

within the five-hour driving time to Hallett.

While we normally have a Club Race

and Drivers’ Education event together,

this year had to be a bit different. The

Club Race was at MotorSport Ranch

in Cresson, TX, while, on the same

weekend, the DE was at the newly

repaved and renovated Eagles Canyon

Raceway in Slidell, TX. Now, I could

go into all the details of WHY it was

that way, but I won’t bore you with all that. Suffice it to

say it was the best decision the CR and DE event chairs

could make for future planning. Did the smaller crowd

deter us from having a great time? Of course it didn’t!

One nice thing about it is that the schedule was much

more relaxed with later start times (hooray for sleep) and

earlier finishing times to allow folks to drive back home

on Sunday. Smaller crowds meant more elbow room at

mealtimes and more donuts for pastry enthusiasts.

The 42 racers who came had a great time. Our race

included the “Republic of Texas 944 Shootout” with one

run group entirely dedicated to the SP1 (Spec 944) racers,

which they rarely get. Talk about a bunch of enthusiasts!

Those guys have serious spirit and enjoyed not only the

racing but fabulous trophies and loads of door prizes

thanks to awesome sponsors and hardworking event

organizers led by Steve Coomes. No one went home

empty handed!

Racing and excitement weren’t just limited to the

944 guys. We had a great group of Spec Boxsters in

heated competition. Add to them a couple of other 996s,

Caymans, 911s, a 914, and a Cup Car. Everyone enjoyed

great track conditions and fun competition.

Everyone also enjoyed a delicious barbeque dinner on

Saturday night at the awards ceremony. Ample brisket

and sides were provided by a local favorite, BBQ on the

Brazos. I can tell you no one left there hungry! Many

thanks also go to the sponsors

for providing terrific door prizes

for racers. Their generosity year

after year is staggering.

While locations and racers

have certainly changed over

the last 20 years, one thing has

remained constant. Volunteerism

in Maverick Region has always

been amazingly strong. This year,

McBee flanked by outgoing co-chairs Pat Heptig and Joel Nannis. Rafael

Serralta’s purple 964

long-time volunteer Joel Nannis, as well as Pat Heptig,

decided to pass their co-chair positions on to a new set of

chairs. David McBee and David Hodges were thankful to

have had the opportunity to learn how much work these

guys have put in year after year. They honored Pat for his

recent years of service and Joel for his who-knows-howmany-years

of service in the Club Race arena. Best of luck

to the Davids next year as we head to Eagles Canyon! We

hope to see many more racers in 2020, even though it will

mean less sleep for us volunteers.

We could not do this without the dedicated volunteers

year after year, both locally and nationally. Don’t let the

lack of sleep deter you from volunteering. I’ve done it for

20 years now and enjoy myself every year. It’s amazing

seeing the excited, smiling faces knowing you’ve helped

them get there.

Happy 20th Anniversary to the Maverick Region Club Race!

APEX Tech Session Recap

by Michael Baynton, Region Tech Session Chair

The morning of November 16 turned out to be

rainy, windy, and more than a little chilly. All in all,

not a good day to be outside. But ironically it provided

a relevant backdrop for the tech session at Apex

Automotive in Addison.

services, graciously provided by Daniel and his staff at

APEX. All in all, the weather deterred only a few folks

from coming out, and those that attended had a great

time and walked away with a wealth of knowledge

(and some cool stuff).

Primary topics that morning centered on PPF

(paint protection film), ceramic coatings, proper

wash techniques, and other means of keeping Porsche

exteriors and interiors safe from the environment.

Daniel Coyle, owner of APEX, gave a very in-depth

yet easy-to-wrap-one’s-head-around presentation that

clearly explained the differences between the various

products and the protections they provide (or don’t

provide). Also discussed was paint correction and how

that service relates to the other products. It served to

highlight the complexity of modern paints and the

various products and services designed to protect our

vehicles from the environment.

After a comprehensive Q&A session, the group

moved into another section of the APEX facility to

learn about the custom fabrication and performance

street or track, engine enhancements, and exhaust

Here are the questions with answers for the November

2019 Trivia. The winner this month is Gary Wielgoszinski,

getting 4 of the 5 questions correct. We had a few others

also only getting 4 correct. It seems that questions #1 &

#2 gave a lot of folks a hard time. Question 1 was pretty

straightforward, but 2 was a bit trickier. In 1963 you could

buy a Production 904 Carrera

GTS IF you had the money; and

it was the same in 1966 with a

906 Carrera 6, according to my

1967 sales brochure.

I just can’t help it (well maybe I can, I just don’t want

to) – I’m fascinated with model cars. My mother always

said “Michael – you’re just a big kid,” which are the

same words echoed today by my wife and children!

My collection includes a concentration of Indy and

Formula 1 race cars, and of course Porsches! Most of

the models have a memorable connection of a sort,

whether it be a favorite driver, race team I follow(ed),

perhaps a race I attended, a car I owned or aspired to

own, or just because . . . because I think the car looks

incredibly cool!

Here is a small glimpse at some of my favorite Porsche

machines across different racing series:

Best thing about Porsche ownership

I had 2 Porsches back in the early 1970’s. Then came a 2003 Boxster S. Since then I have had two

911’s. The many people in Maverick Region who, like me, appreciate them for what they are.

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor

by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor

Quite a bit of 914 content to start off the new year. Last

year marked the 50th anniversary of the introduction of a

mid-engine Porsche in collaboration with Volkswagon. The

914 was created to bring younger buyers into the Porsche

brand. It was successful with a little more than 118,000 sold

from 1969 to 1975. Most of these were imported to the US

and in 1970 the 914 won “Import Car of the Year” here.

The base car used a VW designed 1.7 liter four-cylinder

which propelled the car to 60 in about 13 seconds. Porsche

also sold a version of the 914 named the 914/6 that used

the 2.0 liter boxer engine from the 911T, that reduced that

time to just under 9 seconds. But speed isn’t everything, the

mid-engine car has great balance and driving characteristics

which are prized to this day. However boys being boys, the

factory shoved the 8 cylinder 3 liter boxer engine from the

908 race car into two very special 914S models. The first of

which was given to Ferdinand Piëch, head of development

at that time. The second was presented to none other than

Ferry Porsche to celebrate his 60th birthday. Not a bad gift

for the man that has everything.

The 914 achieved many racing wins during its production

run, the most notable might have been it’s 1, 2, 3 finish in

the 1970 Marathon de la Route held at the Nürburgring.

Another big achievement was the 914/6 GT from Team

Sonauto winning the GT class at 1970 Le Mans. Something

you might not know even if you have a keen appreciation

for the car, eleven 914’s were prepared with six-cylinder

engines from what were then the most powerful 911 models,

the 911 S and Carrera 911 RS. Sadly the 916, as they were

called, never made it to production.

History lesson over. There will not be a quiz. I think of

the 914 as an early cousin to the Boxster/Cayman. I know

I’m not the only one to draw that comparison, in fact a

2018 article by Rob Sass noted: The 986 Boxster is

today’s 914. We have not-so-scientific proof: According

to the Mart section of the September 1997 issue of

Porsche Panorama, the price of a great then 20-year-old

914 was about $4,000 to $5,000. Adjusted for inflation,

that figure becomes about $8,000 in 2018 money.

Coincidentally, eight grand or so is about what a nice

early Boxster will set you back today. Today we can only

laugh about a nice $8,000 Porsche, but the 914 has only

increased in value since then. On average it has also

outpaced the 986 in the current world of Porsche

inflation. There is good news though, the increase has

slowed lately. So...buy a 914 and Enjoy the Drive.
