Taycan. Rhymes with icon.
Park Place presents a classic in the making: the new Taycan. It’s the first all-electric
Porsche ever produced—and a high-performance sports car through and through.
With two permanent-magnet synchronous motors generating up to 750 hp and
acceleration faster than a skydiver in free fall. Plus, an 800-volt battery that can be
partially recharged to add up to 62 miles of range in just over five minutes. And this
iconic Porsche comes equipped with a legendary dealership experience.
That’s what makes Park Place feel like Your Place.

In case you’ve been wondering, it was Region
President Bill Kruder’s idea to divvy up this column
amongst the four elected Board members, so that each
of us has a chance every quarter to communicate with
Maverick Region members. In the past, this space
belonged to the Region President only, so we all agreed
that it was a great idea to allow the four of us to take
turns sharing our general and/or specific viewpoints
with you. So here is my Botschaft (message) to you.
Since Maverick Region is in an area that typically
enjoys warmer weather than much of the rest of the
country, our events and event series start early in the
year, then take a break in the summer, returning again
in the fall. Our very popular Coffee Meets and Monthly
Socials of course take place all year round. The month
that just ended featured the year’s first autocross and
Drivers’ Education events, as well as a Tech Session,
so I hope you were able to check out at least one of
them. If you didn’t, you can sample more in March: not
one but two autocrosses, another Drivers’ Education
weekend, another Tech Session, and the first tour of the
year, to our Alle Mitglieder (All Member) Party. April
has even more in store for us. See our events calendar at
http://mav.pca.org/Calendar/ to see what’s coming up!
Board Botschaft: 2020 Events Have Already Started!
by Carey Spreen, Region Vice President
I would also like to direct your attention to PCA’s annual weeklong
celebration, known as the Porsche Parade, which will be held
this year near Palm Springs, CA from June 21 through 27. If you
have never experienced a Parade, I enthusiastically recommend
attending. It combines several competitive events, tours, social
events, and banquets, all celebrating Porsches and the PCA
members who drive them.
MAV OF THE MONTH:
Tom & Ginger Heuerman
Or for those of you who consider Palm
Springs too hot or too far away, mark
your calendars for next year, when it
will be held in French Lick, Indiana, less
than 900 miles from most locations in the
DFW area. It is an experience not to be
missed. Registration is already open for
this year’s Parade; for more details, visit
We hope you attend a Maverick Region
event soon – you’ll be glad you did!
Tom and Ginger are approaching their 5th anniversary with the PCA, and over
that time they have been very active members. You may have remembered that
Ginger put her talents to work when she hand-stitched the Maverick Region Logo
quilt that was auctioned off during our Founders Day Party back in 2017. That’s
just one of the many activities they have helped with, and it doesn’t stop there. Tom
and Ginger just recently stepped in to run the Rally program as Co-Chairs. They
have participated in so many Rallies - they are super-excited and preparing for the
Easter Rally coming up in April. Tom and Ginger are great examples of how our
club stays Fueled By Volunteers. Please join me in congratulating them as our
Mavericks of the Month!

Spring 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 and coated in time for
the All Member Tour and Party!
Our first tour for the 2020 season
is the All Member Driving Tour and is
scheduled for March 22 at 10 am which
is the first official weekend of spring!
The driving tour this year is 48.4 miles
and lasts about an hour.
We have two classes for driving tours.
Choose Vintage class if you want a more
relaxed scenic tour, or Modern class for
the same tour as we have provided in the
past. Whichever class you choose, it’s
your decision, no matter what Porsche
After you register, we will send you
all the information needed to attend, three days before
the tour. We also hand out packets the day of the tour
with all the information as well. The Drivers’ Briefing

find the country breakfast bar, including eggs, smoked
Applewood Bacon, sausage patties, breakfast potatoes,
seasonal fruit. I almost forgot about the
Southern Biscuit Bar! Warm biscuits,
buttermilk fried chicken, and all the
toppings. This was a big hit last year, so
we ordered double for this year. Should

Meet your 2020 Executive Board
by the Executive Board
Bill Kruder, President
Debi and Bill Kruder
How long have you been a member?
We joined in the spring of 1996,
went to a couple things but as we say
life gets in the way and never really
did anything until about four years
ago. After meeting Jim Hirsch, then
Slipstream Editor, he asked me to
serve the club in being the Advertising
Chair. Shortly there after I volunteered
to do a monthly piece that is now
Coffee, Cars and Conversation. Fast
forward and I was asked to run for
President. Long story short, we have
been members now for 24 years.
I’m a 40-year JC Penney Co veteran.
Matter of fact, it’s the only company I
ever worked for and was interviewed
only once in my life in 1973 for a
$2.50 an hour sales associate position
just out of high school starting
college. I’m now retired doing what I
tell friends I do best … nothing.
Debi and I have three children, two
daughters and a son. Our oldest is
Maggie 28, Carson 24 and our son
Conor is 22.
I’m an avid reader of hard cover books,
skiing, and anything Porsche. Fun fact
. . . my books are time capsules. They
contain photos, event tickets, and
anything that might have been going
on in my life while reading!
What do we drive?
We are the proud owners of
four air-cooled cars, each from
a different decade. 1964 356C,
1972 914, 1982 911 SC, and a
Favorite Maverick activity?
Anything involving coffee and
Porsches, we attend just about
every Mavs & Mochas, all
annual socials, as my wife Debi
is the chairperson, an occasional
Happy Hour and many
“impromptus” organized on our
Carey Spreen, Vice President
How long have you been a member?
I have been a PCA member for 41
years, since 1979. I have been a
member of five different PCA regions,
but have belonged to Maverick
Region for 25 years.
I’m a television engineer by trade, but
I currently am an Integration Engineer
at a company that creates software
for TV distributors to provide
addressable television advertising.
I have a daughter Geneva, age 23,
who recently joined the US Navy as
a Cryptology Technician/Interpreter.
She is a Porsche fan too, having
competed in several autocrosses.
She has attended 13 Porsche Parades
and hopes to own her own Porsche
someday soon. I met my girlfriend
Sue in 2013 and she has become a
Porsche enthusiast as well, becoming
an avid autocrosser and Parade-goer!
I enjoy reading, watching movies,
autocrossing, and road trips, not
necessarily in that order!
What do we drive?
I have a 1982 911SC coupe, a 2004
Boxster S 550 Edition, and a 2008
Cayenne base model. The Cayenne is
the daily driver.
Favorite Maverick activity?
Autocross, Drivers’ Education
(although I have not been able to attend
a DE in awhile), Rally events, and
tours top my list of region activities.
Jennifer Parma, Region Secretary
How long have you been a member?
I bought my 2007 Midnight Blue
Boxster about four years ago, but it
wasn’t until I attended my first Mavs
and Mochas event in 2018 that I finally
made it official and joined the PCA.
I was a paralegal for about 15 or so
years, first in personal injury but then
mostly in the medical malpractice
field. It was a challenge every day
to go to work hearing and seeing
horrific stories, especially when it
involved the death of a child. I made
it my mission to get out of this career
and subsequently I was able to retire
a few years ago.
I have two daughters, Lauren is 26 and
lives by White Rock Lake. Natalie is
17 and is attending Richland College
and is about to receive her associates
degree. Both girls have made being a
mom very rewarding!
I will state the obvious and say I love
driving my Porsche, especially with the top down on a
beautiful, sunny day! I also love to hit the gym and cycle
all of the awesome trails that Dallas has to offer. And
kitties....Lucy and Hazel bring me great joy.
What do I drive?
2007 Porsche Boxster, 2016 Jaguar F Type R, 2008
Natalie, Jennifer and Lauren
Favorite Maverick activity?
I try to attend every Mavs & Mochas event but for the
smaller crowd, I love the Sunday impromptu meet ups for
coffee where we can sit around and just talk and chill for
a couple of hours. I love the concours, the tours and the
All Member Party but the Founder’s Day has to be my
favorite day of the year!
Contact me to learn how you can get
the most out of retirement.

Chris Flaugh, Treasurer
How long have you been a member?
Although I bought my first Porsche in 1995, I didn’t join
PCA until 20 years later, in 2015. One of the first Maverick
members I met was Jim Hirsch, who encouraged me to
volunteer for the Goodie Store role, which I fulfilled until
being asked to consider becoming Treasurer.
Debi Kruder, Chris Flaugh and Frank Zack
After completing a Finance degree, my first career was
in banking. Later obtaining a MBA, I went to the lottery
industry as part of the startup team for the Indiana Lottery.
I moved to Austin in 1992 to help start the Texas Lottery,
then on to Dallas with GTE/Verizon. I currently divide my
time between real estate and automotive brokerage.
My husband Frank Zack and I live in north Dallas with
two dogs; both are Boxers we adopted through Legacy
Boxer Rescue: Cowboy and Etta. Frank is Director of
Beverage and Operations for Neiman Marcus restaurants,
and has been with the company over 20 years.
Travel. Our latest trip was to Greece. If you’re ever in
Athens, the Hellenic Motor Museum is a must-see. One of
our most exciting trips was to Spain when we ran with the
bulls in Pamplona. We also love road trips, and take an
annual road trip to Aspen in June, in a Porsche. Last year
was in a Boxster, the year before in a 911 . . . not sure yet
what it will be this year.
What do we drive?
We currently have three Porsches in the garage: 1980 928,
1981 928, 2008 Cayenne S. Current non-Porsches include
a Mercedes S600 and Audi A3 TDI. But that lineup is
subject to change at any time!
Favorite Maverick activity?
I really enjoy the Tours - it’s a great opportunity to get out
and drive, often followed by a lunch or other social event.
That’s the wonderful thing about this club . . . there truly
is something for everyone.

R U Manual or Automatic
by Robert Turner
So, let me ask you car enthusiasts a question that’s
been weighing on my mind: Manual or Automatic?
Why do I want to know? If you’ve spent as much time
perusing the web as I have, you already know the lay
of the land on the usual suspects like “Bring-a-Trailer,
“Rennlist,” or “6-Speed”:
Manual transmission – Yes.
Automatic transmission – HELL NO.
It seems the argument is very particular and personal
when it comes to Porsches. How many times has a
Porsche with Tiptronic or PDK come up for sale, and
the purists claim that if there’s no third pedal, the
Porsche in question falls into the “unworthy” category?
Based on my casual calculations, it comes up within the
first four or five postings.
You’ve read them, right? For instance, there’s a great
looking, low mileage 996 Turbo with choice options.
But wait – one glaring Thing gets some of the posters’
tongues (or keyboards) a wagging. The Thing? The car
has a Tip! Suddenly poster XYZ claims that he’d never
buy a Tip. How could anyone ever consider buying a
Porsche with anything but a manual transmission? Of
course, poster XYZ has never bought, let alone bid on
an actual car, manual or automatic transmission.
Are there Tip defenders? Sure. For example, poster
ABC mentions how he appreciates not having to row
gears in city traffic, or how he wants a 996 Turbo just
for cruising. Of course, poster XYZ then responds with
“hey @ABC, why don’t you consider
a Mercedes SL instead, Mr. Wimp.”
Then their posts are instantly kicked off
as being inappropriate. It just wears me
At a recent Porsche event I ran into
a guy with a notepad who was going
from car to car making notations on the
pad. He glanced inside a 993 Cab and
proclaimed “Yep, a real Porsche!” Then
he made a mark on the pad. I strolled
over to him. Glancing at the pad, I saw
he’d added a hash in a “Real Porsche”
column. I just couldn’t help myself.
“What ‘cha doing?”
“Counting Porsches to see which
ones are real and which ones aren’t.”
“Ya don’t say…where are you at?”
“Hmmm” Glancing around the parking lot I
said, “I don’t see anything but real Porsches.
Am I missing something?”
He looked at his pad again and recounted.
He looked up.
Pointing at a nearby GT3, I mentioned that it
only came with PDK. “It’s the best way to get
around the track as fast as possible,” I said.
He nodded. “Uh huh, that’s what I hear.”
I pointed to my own nearby car; it has a PDK.
“I searched the whole country for a car in
that color with PDK. After 40+ years of doing
clutch work, I deserved a break,” I added.
“Yeah, I hear those PDK’s are pretty nice.”
“So I have to ask, if you’re a manual-‘til-youdie
sort, does that mean you only like wind-up
windows, no A/C, AM-FM radio – because a
cassette player is pushing it a bit, don’t you
think? And no Cruise Control? Man, that’s
what your right foot is for,” I added, only
“Point taken.” He turned and strolled towards
the next car, peered into the interior and made
I get it. A manual gives you that direct connection to the drive
train. Then there’s that visceral feeling of moving the gearshift
through the gates. And heel-and-toeing as you rapidly downshift
is amazing. From what I read, Porsche sells the most manual
transmissions in the U.S. market. But count me among the
converts; the PDK is pretty awesome. And as a bonus, my left calf
muscle no longer looks like a nice-sized salad plate.
Will I buy another manual transmission car? What?!
Of course I will, in a second. But it will be a classic like
a 951 or 968. And it sure as hell will have the original
cassette player because when you’re going manual, you
may as well be completely Old School.
And on that exhaust note, see you all next time.

February Mavs & Mochas: RAC Performance
by Pat Carmichael
photos provided by Michael Durovick & Bill Middleton
It was a bright and sunny day at RAC Performance, and
more than 130 Porsche cars showed up bright and early
to take advantage. It all made for a wonderful gathering.
There were donuts and coffee, and several of the attendees
brought bags and bags of food for the M&M PCA food
drive. There were also many cars lined up along the curbs
on Skyline Drive from one end to the other. Several of the
cars sported a run up and down the road offering tones of
power everyone recognizes as Porsches, being Porsche . . . .
RAC performance also had quite a lineup and
display of cars inside the building being offered for sale.
There were dozens and dozens of cars inside their main
warehouse showroom, and there were many of the more
elite P-cars of the high performance varieties, especially
one of the new 911 Speedsters in Carmine Red, all in the
front entry showroom behind the glass.
It’s always fun at the RAC performance Mavs &
Mochas. The friendly people show us a good time and
open their doors for us all. It’s always a good Maverick
crowd, and we were real lucky to have great weather. I
can’t wait until the March event, when we’re off to
Poston Gardens in Waxahachie. Everybody take care
and we’ll see y’all there!

Maverick Marktpreis: 912
by Peter Wen
What do you get when you put a 356 flat-four engine inside
a 911 body? Well, you get a sweetness called 912, a superbhandling
entry level Porsche. Back in 1965, as Porsche closed
out the chapter on the patriarchal 356 with the now iconic
911 and its flat-six engine, Porsche needed a lower priced
four-cylinder model to drive sales. Enter the 912. The sweet
combination of the boxer four engine and 901 (911) body
proved to be a huge hit. Upon introduction in 1965 through
1967, 912 outsold 911 by nearly 2-to-1.
Besides the engine differences, the two models are nearly
identical. Early 912 has a 3-gauge cluster compared to 911’s
5-gauge. It has a 4-speed transmission instead of 911’s 5-speed.
While the 912 generated 40 hp less than the original 911, it more
than made up for it by weighing 200 lbs less. Back in 1965, test
drivers reported the 912 offered neater, less tail-happy handling,
and at times, could be driven faster than the 911!
The original 912 was produced through 1969. It was
superseded by the new 914. Interestingly, Porsche brought the
912 back for a 1-year only production in 1976 (912E), again,
to bridge the gap between the end of 914 production and the
upcoming launch of 924 in 1977. The 912E was based on the
impact-bumper generation 911. Only 2,099 (912E) examples
912 deserves a spot in your stable. As the saying goes, it has
the engine that made Porsche famous, and the body that made
it a legend. Early 912 examples are still fairly attainable
compared to the long hood 911s. Hagerty reported stable
market pricing over the last three years.
1965 $40k-$90k $110k-$225k
1966-68 $20k-$55k $45k-$110k
1969 $25k-$55k $35k-$80k (T)
1976 $17k-$35k (T) $15k-$40k
Source: Excellence magazine’s Porsche Buyer’s Guide
Fun fact: Porsche proudly promoted the new 912
Targa model for police use. The 100,000th
Porsche was a 912 Targa. It was outfitted with
POLIZEI markings and was delivered to the
Baden-Württemberg police department, the home
state of Porsche, on December 21, 1966.

Coffee, Cars & Conversation
by Bill Kruder
photos provided by author
So, another chance meeting
about a year ago on a cold January
morning at the monthly Motoring
Mavs at Mayo. As I recall, we were
all huddled near the coffee when
this young man walked by that
I’d never seen before. We started
talking, of course, about our cars
and he mentioned he had a 914.
Well, one of ours is a 914 too, so
we struck up a conversation, and
when he started asking questions
about a couple of things, I quickly
connected him with Ed Mayo.
Shortly thereafter I went to check
the cars out and I spotted this
great-looking Sunflower Yellow
914 and put two and two together.
I caught back up with the owner to
find out that he also had a 944 and
had been attending several Mav
events before finally joining PCA.
Well as they say, the rest is history,
as this couple is now participating
in Tours, Rallies, and Coffee Meets
as their busy schedule allows.
So here is the next in my series
of “conversations” I would like to
share with you . . .
Scott and Katie Scheetz,
members since 2019
Owners 1973 914, 1979
930, and 1985 944
Bill Kruder: So where are you two
Scott Scheetz: I’m from Aiken, South
Carolina, which is about 2.5 hours
east of Atlanta. I was born and
raised there and didn’t move until
I left for college in Bloomington,
home of Indiana University.
Katie Scheetz: I’m from Bolingbrook,
Illinois, a southwest suburb of
Chicago, about 30 miles away. I
was born and raised there until I
left for school in Wisconsin. I did
that for a year then I also landed at
IU in Bloomington.
BK: So why Wisconsin, then IU?
KS: Well I took the year off after
high school and taught violin, then
decided to attend a small school up
there and studied String Pedagogy
(the teaching of strings). After a
year there I decided to go to the
music school at IU and pursue a
degree in Pipe Organ Performance.
BK: Scott isn’t that what you did?
SS: As a matter of fact, my degree
from IU was also Pipe Organ
Performance. We both happened to
start the same year.
Katie and Scott Scheetz
BK: So how did you end up in
Dallas? I understand you did not
come down here together.
SS: Well, after graduating from IU
in 2015, I had applied at SMU for
Seminary school. I graduated from
the Perkins School in 2017.
KS: After I graduated from IU, I
took a year off to do a Fulbright
in France and then I applied
to graduate school at SMU,
unbeknownst to Scott. That’s
another story (laughing).
BK: Wait, so you weren’t engaged or
SS: No, we were just friends. I mean
we texted or emailed now and then
but that was it.
BK: So how did you meet?
KS: It was at IU. We both applied
to the music school and had to
audition there the year before we
started. The professor had a party
for the new students. I remember
the day. We had a huge snowstorm
and Scott was there.
SS: We talked and became good
friends during our undergraduate
studies. I tried asking her on a
date our junior year, but she shut
me down. We had our music in
common so I guess I was ok with
just being friends (smiling).
KS: It’s funny, we would go to things
and I would introduce Scott as my
“colleague” (smiling). I didn’t want
anyone to get the wrong idea, I guess.
BK: So, what happened to change
your mind, Katie?
KS: Well, once I came down here to
SMU, we had classes together and
we were friends . . .
SS: One day we had lunch with a
mentor and the whole lunch he
focused the conversation on Katie.
He was trying to figure out why two
people with so much in common
were not together.
KS: It’s true. It was after that lunch
I realized what I needed to do:
date him (laughing). And I guess it
worked out ok. We were married in
July of 2018.
BK: Refresh my memory, what is it
that you both do again?
KS: I’m the Associate Organist at
Highland Park Methodist.
SS: I’m the Music Minister and
organist for Crown of Life Lutheran
Church in Colleyville.
BK: So let’s talk cars now, what was
your first car?
KS: Well, the first car that I bought
was my ‘99 10th Anniversary
Edition Miata. When Scott took me
to buy it, he had to drive it home as
I couldn’t drive a stick. He taught
me in my apartment parking lot.
SS: Mine? It was a ‘99 Ford Ranger.
BK: First Porsche?
SS: That would be our 944; we
found it on FB Marketplace. We
took it for a drive and decided we
weren’t going to buy it. As we drove
away, we started talking about it
more and sure enough, I made a
U-turn and we went back to buy it.
That was September 2017.
KS: Of course, once we had it
home, like all older cars it needed
repairs and we would be out in the
apartment parking lot at all hours
doing repairs. Then one day Scott’s
dad appeared with a trailer and took
it home with him. Once he had it,
he would send us pictures of our car
with another 944, then another. As
it turned out, his dad bought three
other 944s just for the parts!
BK: So you come from a car background?
SS: I do. My mom and dad both
are car people and used to be club
racers and paid instructors. My
mom had a 1979 Porsche 930
and my dad a 1983 Lamborghini
Countach, which he still has.
BK: The 930 is the one you now have?
SS: Yes it is! My mom gave it to me
as a graduation present. It’s black on
white, and has some factory upgrades,
making it very similar to a 934.
BK: When we first met you had your
914 out. Tell me about it.
KS: It started after a tour of Auto Atlanta.
There was an orange one they were
restoring there and I fell in love with it.
SS: Well, my dad had the 944 so
we were without a Porsche and we
decided to start looking for a 914.
We made several attempts to buy
one, but each time we found one,
it would sell out from under us. So
in November 2018, we found one
on Craigslist. It’s a ‘73 Sunflower
Yellow 1.7 liter.
KS: Well it was a 1.7 until we recently
did an engine swap to a 2.0 liter.
SS: And she does mean WE! Katie
is right there with me working on it
and we’re both covered in motor oil.
And there you have it . . . Driving

2020 Easter Hop: Gimmick Rally Preview
by Ginger and Tom Heuerman
Please join us for our fifth annual Easter gimmick rally!
The Easter Hop Porsche Gimmick Rally 2020 is set for
Saturday, April 11. Sign-in starts at 10 am in the Turbo
Coffee parking lot at 5800 Windhaven Pkwy, The Colony,
TX 75056. Note that we are lucky enough to have a
Gimmick rally that we can enjoy hanging out and having
coffee with our Mavs & Mochas friends first. They are
meeting at the same place starting at 8:30. So let’s come
early, have fun, and sign up, then have the drivers’ meeting
at 10:30. Sign-up will officially begin at 10:00. We will end
at the Shumardii’s Bar and Grill in Bonham for libation and
lunch, a re-cap 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.
As new rallymeisters we are determined to maintain the
excitement and competition. 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 The Colony to Bonham traveling over 79 miles and
staying on paved back roads, out of the main stream of
traffic as much as possible. This is a tiny bit longer than
our normal, with a few tolls, but we know the fun with
our Mavs & Mochas friends, as well as the route, is well
worth the extra few miles and tolls.
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 Easter Hop Porsche
Gimmick Rally 2020!!!
• Registration starts: 10:00 am
• Drivers Meeting: 10:30 am
• First Car Out At: 10:45 am
Costumes are encouraged but not mandatory! Maybe
even an award will be given. You never know . . . .

Dear Tire Guy
Yes! DE season is back upon us
once again and we’re ready for
an exciting 2020.
So for new PCA members, new DE drivers or even
experienced track turners here’s a couple of tips.
1) Tire pressure is one of the most important aspects of
tuning your car for the track. Finding this ideal pressure
for a track typically involves some trial and error: setting
the cold tire pressure based on past experience and then
making small adjustments based on driver feedback.
If you’re just starting out you’ll be just fine maintaining the
OE cold pressure specified by the vehicle manufacturer.
As you move through the next few DE's then it may be
time to start playing with those pressures, altering them
by 1 or 2 psi as you learn the lines.
2) You need the right tires. Race conditions put tires
under FAR more duress than normal road driving, so you
want to make sure you have something with aggressive
grip to keep you firmly planted on the track. If your DE
car is also a commuter you will want something that’s also
road legal and comfortable, something like the Michelin
Pilot Sport 4S. If you want a dedicated aggressive race
set you could look at something like the Michelin Cup 2,
Toyo 888R, or the Nitto NT-01.
We’re looking forward to seeing all the familiar PCA
faces, and getting to meet the new members as well.
If you need tires, you know who to call! (Our number is
right at the bottom, hint hint) Until next month Drive On!
one. That’s who.
Until next month, drive on! –The Tire Guy

by Chris Flaugh, Region Treasurer
In the continued interest of complete transparency to our
membership, here is the year-end 2019 financial report.
This 2019 Statement of Activity, prepared by our previous
interim Treasurer, James L. Falgout, CPA, shows a net
excess of $29,714 for the year, an improvement over the
2018 figure of $22,020. Our track-related events (Driver

strong participation and revenue. This revenue, combined
with the generous support we receive from PCA, our local
Porsche dealerships, and other businesses, has allowed
us to expand and enhance the many events our members
enjoy. Our Slipstream advertisers are a critical piece of
this as well, and we appreciate their ongoing support.
This strong performance across the board also allowed
us to increase our 2019 charitable contributions to
$23,651, up from $21,600 the previous year. As noted
in last month’s Slipstream, the Huffaker-Hughes Hope
House has continued to be the Maverick Region’s primary
Thank you all for making 2019 another strong financial
year for our club. These results make it possible to offer a
wide variety of events tailored to a multitude of interests,
and also to give back to our community. We look forward

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor
by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor
Last month I revealed a little about my love for cars
that underwent some questionable transformations in the
80’s, and that brought up some conversations about what
constitutes a “real Porsche”. We’re an opinionated lot I’ve
found. This month Robert Turner shares a conversation he
had with another enthusiast at one of our fine events and
that opens the door on my article this month.
So what is a real Porsche? Does it need to have a flat six
to qualify? Should only cars with the engine in the back be let
into the club? Should they even have automatic transmissions,
cup holders and backup cameras? We’ve heard things said in
fun like: Oh, the 914 doesn’t count, it was developed with
VW. Your 944 is nice, but it isn’t a real Porsche. And why
oh why do we need an SUV from our favorite manufacturer?
I’ve driven on of those SUV’s, a Turbo Macan, and I can
confirm that not only does it have the crest on the hood, it
has the soul inside. And while I’m still holding out judgement
on the Taycan, I think we can trust the folks in Stuttgart
to keep real Porsches rolling out the door that we’ll enjoy
driving. They are real, and they are fabulous!
A lot has been said throughout the years of controversial
Porsches and all of the terrible mistakes the company has
made. I read an article a few years ago that aimed to find
the car that represented Porsche’s biggest failure. You
know what they decided? It was the Carrera GT. I’m not
even going to begin to parse how wrong-headed that is,
but I do think it points out something very interesting. If
that beautiful and very potent car is considered the biggest
failure the company has made, they are doing pretty well.
I can’t think of another mainstream manufacturer that can
come close to that.
My day job is branding and design and Porsche is such
an interesting study, on many levels. Their core product is
eight generations old, and made its debut in 1963 and
launched in 1964. Some perspective: the Ford Mustang
also debuted in 1964. It has had six generations, but one of
those was the Mustang II. It was based on the Pinto, so
there’s that. Ford is making a Mustang based electric crossover,
the Mach E. I can’t count the wrong. We call it brand
dilution. It might be a great car but imagine if Porsche had
named the Cayenne the 911 Xtra. Shudder. The Corvette
has had seven generations, beginning in 1953. Not only
does the new one have the engine in the back (okay,
middle), it just doesn’t look like a Corvette to me at all. But
a Porsche still looks like a Porsche. Still drives like a
Porsche. So, keep the faith and enjoy the drive.
