Taycan. Rhymes with icon.
With life getting back in motion, now is the perfect time to discover a classic in the
making: Taycan. It’s the first all-electric Porsche sports car, 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 at Park Place, this new Porsche icon comes with a total
commitment to sanitation, safety and comfort every time you visit the dealership.
That’s what makes Park Place feel like Your Place.

The Coronavirus has, of course, created new records for
firsts. One notable first is that 2020 is the first time that the
Porsche Parade has been cancelled in its 65-year history. The
organizers held out as long as they could before making that
decision, but the writing was on the wall; it would have been
too dangerous to bring over 1,500 PCA members and guests
together for the numerous banquets, seminars, parties, and
get-togethers that comprise the Parade.
The competitive events, in hindsight, probably could have
been put on in relative safety. The Concours d’Elegance,
typically held on a large golf course, would have made
for practical social distancing measures to be in place for
competitors and spectators alike. The TSD Rally is not a
spectator event, and the driver/navigator pairs in each car
are largely couples, and the exceptions to that rule of thumb
know each other well enough to trust that their partner
would bow out if they suspected that they were infected. The
two-day Autocross does allow spectators, but there is enough
room at the outdoor venue (usually an airport or very large
parking lot) to allow safe distances between the fans, the
workers, and the competitors. The fourth competitive event
is the Technical and Historic Quiz, which is held in a large
conference room or ballroom, again with enough room for
everyone to stay six feet apart.
But it was not to be for 2020. However, we’re already
looking ahead to 2021, when the Porsche Parade will be
held at the French Lick Resort in French Lick, IN, which is
roughly a 12-1/2 hour drive from the D/FW area. If French
Lick sounds familiar, it may be because it was the site of the
2015 Parade as well. It was one of the more scenic Parade
venues, not the least of which was the resort itself, which
has been in operation for over 100 years. The resort actually
consists of two hotels a couple of miles apart: the French Lick
Springs Hotel and the West Baden Springs Hotel. Porsche
Parade attendees occupy both hotels, and the various Parade
events are split between the two locations.
Board Botschaft: Make Plans for Porsche Parade 2021
by Carey Spreen, Region VP
MAV OF THE MONTH:
So if you have never attended a Porsche Parade, or if
you haven’t been to one in a while, make plans to attend
next year. Keep in mind also that the Parade won’t be this
close to D/FW again until 2024! The dates have not been
finalized yet, but it will take place sometime in late June or
early July. It’s a gorgeous venue, and a great way to meet
fellow PCA members from all over North America, as well
as representatives from Porsche AG.
Meanwhile, Texas is finally starting to open back up, so
stay safe and come on out to a Maverick Region event to see
what PCA is all about!
Mike has been with the PCA close to 4 years. Right from the green light he kicked it into high
gear and became very active in many activities and always lending a hand. Mike is a friendly
face always welcoming Mavs at our event and giving a fun greeting to any PCA Jr. that may also
be attending. Mike’s love for Porsche and Auto Racing can be seen either by the smile on his
face when driving his 991 GT3, or his amazing collection of die-cast race cars. Mike has had
some great ideas for our club’s Tech Sessions which is why he teamed up to help Co-Chair those
events. Mike also recently took on a fun task of running our Weekly Online Trivia “Porschephile
Prufung” (Porsche Exam) to give us all something fun to do during the COVID19 sheltering-inplace
time. Mike has come up with some great and interesting questions to stump us. Each
week he would announce a winner for “bragging rights” and post another question. These are
things that bring us together by Driving Friendships and more reasons how our club stays
Fueled By Volunteers. Please join me in Congratulating Mike as our Maverick of the Month.
Our response to COVID-19
Maverick Region COVID Communication chair, Wendy Shoffit
I know… If you’re anything like me, you’re tired of
hearing about COVID-19. You’re tired of talking about
it and certainly tired of hearing how everyone in the
universe is handling this situation. The reality of it is
that this coronavirus will be a part of our lives at least
for the next year or so. I’m tired of cancelling all my
fun events and having this illness affect my business and
my livelihood to the extremes. Yes, I know I shouldn’t
be grousing about this, but the reality is it has made a
significant impact on all of us. I think it’s okay to be
sad about the losses and STILL do the right thing by
following the protocols that other government officials
and experts have deemed to be the safest for us.
The Porsche Club of America has nearly ground
to a halt. Talk about non-essential activities? While I
might feel like my oxygen has been cut off if I can’t
drive fast and autocross or DE, no one in government
finds that essential. Go figure! So, as restaurants, bars,
entertainment venues, and eventually stores start reopening
in Phases, we also have to start to adapt to our
changed environment. We have to do it safely to protect
those most at risk, but still understand that we as
human beings need other human beings for our mental
well being. While we can’t necessarily shake hands and
hug each other, even being the socially distanced 6 feet
apart feels like a breath of fresh air. I welcome it and am
eager to find out exactly what this “new normal” looks
like for Maverick Region.
Drives will have
As we slowly start having
events again, I wanted
to assure you that we are
taking many precautions to
as will rallies. We’re
going to give virtual
tech sessions a try and
cautiously meet up for
coffee. We will respect
social distancing rules
as much as possible
and have things like hand sanitizer and (if they can
be sourced) masks available. Each event type will be
coming up with their own set of protocols to ensure
they are taking care of entrants. PCA National
has outlined much of this for us and we will adapt
additionally, as needed.
National is also concerned about what could turn
into a lawsuit frenzy. You’ve probably heard of the
lawsuit filed against Walmart by a family of an employee
who contracted COVID-19. There are likely to be other
attempts as time progresses. Well, we want our people
to be protected from any sort of lawsuit that could arise
where people think they contracted this virus during
one of our events. So, as a protective measure, they’ve
created a required communicable disease waiver for
everyone to sign at our upcoming activities. It’s a single
page and you only have to sign it one time to be covered
through May 15, 2021. This is a safety precaution
for US as we try to resume PCA life. This waiver will
be sent out to everyone who pre-registers for events.
Printed blanks will also be available at check in for
those who might not be able to print them at home. We
are working on a system to track who and when you’ve
signed the waiver to keep you from having to sign it
multiple times if you don’t want to.
If you don’t want to ever sign the waiver, that’s okay.
You don’t have to come to events. If you are in a high risk
category and don’t feel like this is worth it, we respect
that and will see you when you do feel comfortable. We
won’t love you any less. The rest of us will press on and
try to find whatever OUR “new normal” is.
So, when an event comes up and you want to
attend, be prepared to sign this waiver. Please
don’t give our volunteers a hard time if they
insist you sign it in order to be there. They’re
just doing their jobs. We will, of course, keep
doing everything we can to protect everyone in
attendance, like the world has been doing since
this pandemic started.
Be safe, be well, be happy!

YOU’RE INVITED: 2020 All Member Party
by Debi Kruder
We are excited to announce that our previously-scheduled
March All Member Morning has been rescheduled to Sunday,
August 16 and will not disappoint!
Over 350 Mavericks drove at least 40 miles for last
year’s “Alle Mitglieder,” our annual All Member social, to
get to what proved to be worth the drive for an amazing All
Member Morning, two events for over 3000 members! This
year’s registrations are topping that number, proving to be our
largest Maverick gathering in history!
The morning kicks off with a first driving tour enjoying
45 miles of pure country bliss. Enjoy the cattle ranches and
horse farms among the roar of more than 100 engines while
traveling through the towns of Van Alstyne, Weston, Celina,
Pilot Point, Tioga, and finally arriving at our destination:
Gunter, TX. Tour begins at 9:30 am departing Van Alystne
on the beloved FM 455 and registration is $5 per Porsche.
Registration is filling fast so register today.
And what waits in Gunter? Well the 2020 All Member
Brunch begins at 11 am at One Preston Event Center Carriage
House, Chapel, and Victorian Estate. The property will leave
you speechless. It’s a gorgeous space with vaulted ceilings,
large windows, and barn doors overlooking acres of lush
landscaping with great patios and the largest number of
Porsches you are sure to see in one place!
Our Porsche flags will line the drive and our Maverick
volunteers will greet you to assist in parking. As you walk
around the circle drive you will see the gorgeous fountain and
enter the barn door, immediately smelling a most delicious
country breakfast bar, including eggs, smoked applewood
bacon, sausage patties, breakfast potatoes, and fresh seasonal
fruit. What was last year’s crowd favorite? The Southern
Biscuit Bar, and we’ve made sure to double our order of the
warm biscuits, buttermilk fried chicken, and all the toppings!
Mingle, eat, and enjoy the Bubbly Bar and Bloody Marys
as we welcome our new members too! Nearly a third in
attendance last year were new members, and it’s the perfect
place to meet and get connected with club opportunities. Our
Maverick officers and chair representatives will be on site to
showcase the fall and winter 2020 events we are so excited
about. Rumor has it our new President, Bill Kruder, will also
be introducing a new Maverick award, Crest Club, that’s sure
to make the All Member Morning extra special too!
New members are our special guests with FREE registration
discount codes available, email firstname.lastname@example.org and a
Maverick goodie bag to make them feel welcome too! So, do
you want to spend August 16 with nearly 400 Mavericks on
a casual country morning at one of the most talked about
events of 2020? Register today!

Deafening Silence: 2020 Taycan
by Greg Dranow
photos provided by author
The year 2020 has arrived.
While most (if not all) of us had
plans and expectations for the year,
this diverse petrol Porsche driver
neither planned or expected to be
joining the ranks of electric car
owners or drivers.
Yes, I was the guy
who would activate
the Sport Exhaust
and drop down a
couple of gears to
flex some Stuttgart
muscle to millennial
Prius drivers as
I smiled with a
sense of immature
satisfaction. And if
in a tunnel? Bonus!!
Not sure if it was
the effects of Covid,
or a combination of
all three, but seeing
the new Taycan 4S
at the dealership
got my attention. Having driven
the Taycan Turbo S briefly prior,
I had already felt an odd sense
of familiarity and wanted more.
Negotiations to put this Taycan 4S
in my garage got underway. A few
hours later, we drove off in near
silence, yet still getting to 60 in
well under four seconds.
First ownership impressions,
I must say, were not terribly
impressive. While the dealership
was helpful in assisting with
the basics, being so reliant on
technology to do just about
everything was somewhat
challenging. From charging (a
WHOLE other story) to setting
up Porsche Connect to simply
setting radio stations, it was . . .
interesting. Think giving the latest
and greatest Samsung product to a
long time iPhone user.
But now . . .
a month and
Weighing in at
just under 5000
anything but a
however, it handles
as if it were on
rails. And this
weight and long
wheelbase are very
welcome when it comes to bumpy
surfaces. Even though it’s crazy
fast, ironically, every trip takes
longer than expected. Young to
old and male to female it seems
nearly everyone approaches to ask
questions about the car. It looks like
nothing else before, and everyone
who looks seems to smile.
Coming to terms with the car as
a whole is certainly enjoyable. Is it
a replacement for piston moving
and oil burning? I’m not so sure.
This thing is a riot!!! Stupid fast acceleration making
a whirring sound that sounds like something out of
Star Wars! Without gears, the power is linear. And the
handling is pure Porsche.
What it seems to be is Porsche’s
future and we can all agree that the
future is not the past. Looking
forward, I say Porsche engineers
did a great job and the design team
also impressed. Now, while the
Taycan sits in the garage charging,
it seems a great time to take the
6-speed Boxster out for dinner . . .

Mavs & Mochas: June 13 at Turbo Coffee
by Robert Turner
photos provided by Richard Arce, Landon Stogner & Scott Sheetz
months have been tough
on everyone. It was great
to celebrate togetherness
once again, if for just a few
hours, in a parking lot at a
joint called Turbo Coffee.
Me? I think they
should change the name
to Porsche Turbo Coffee.
It’d be our Mav region
home! See you all at the
Mavs & Mochas at
Montgomery Plaza in
Fort Worth. We are
celebrating the color
yellow. So calling all
yellow Porsches! Yes, that
means you LMNHED.
Turbo Coffee? You’ve got to be
kidding me. Turbo and Coffee colliding
together at an actual venue? Yep,
pretty much. So, I am thinking this is
a place that Porsches should hang out.
Not sure if it’s coincidence or irony,
but it was also Porsche Turbo day too.
Prophetic? Nah. Just good timing.
After a long hiatus, Mavs &
Mochas is back, and with a vengeance.
Over 140 cars showed up and it was a
smorgasbord of Porsches too. Yes, pun
actually intended, as there was a version
of the infamous Pink Pig, except in 930
clothing. This was a celebration of the
Porsche Turbo. And over 25 showed
up. There were 930s, 993s, 996s, 997s,
Not bad for my 1st event. Great time seeing
incredible cars and meeting amazing people.
Look forward to meeting more of you on the
next one. - Richard Arce
991s, and there may have been a few
other “9’s” involved, but I think we
covered them all.
Several months of social
distancing and shut-ins did not
detour our Maverick Region
faithful. Oh hell no. We turned
out in droves. The weather helped:
typical Texas sunny and warm. We
were greeted with bright orange
cones as Matt Wilson (Mavs &
Mochas Co-Chair par excellent)
and his team set up spacing so our
cars would not be stacked too close
together, also meaning that the
drivers of said cars would not be
stacked too close together. We did
pretty well, and appropriate spacing
was, for the most part, followed by
everyone (I did see one actual hug –
calling you out Jan!) But cars kept
showing up and showing up, more
and more Porsches piling into the
Turbo Coffee parking lot, spilling
(cars, not coffee) into the back
reaches of the lot.
Bill Kruder, our Region President,
was beaming; he was happy to see
so many Mavs coming out. And he
should be happy. As a region we are
socially active, and these past few

Driving Down Padre Island National Seashore - In a Porsche
by Carey Spreen
You may not be aware that the Texas General Land Office
(GLO) passed the Texas Open Beaches Act in 1959, which states
“The public . . . shall have the free and unrestricted right of ingress
and egress to and from the state-owned beaches.” In many cases,
this includes vehicular access, which the GLO considers a primary
means of access to many Texas beaches.
One outstanding example of this right to drive on the beach
is the Padre Island National Seashore (which I will hereafter
refer to as PINS), the entrance to which is located about 30 miles
southeast of downtown Corpus Christi. PINS extends south from
this point about 60 miles, where it ends at the southernmost tip of
Padre Island (not to be confused with South Padre Island, which
is only about 500 feet to the south across the Mansfield Channel,
but not accessible from PINS). All 60 miles are drivable beach,
and a great way to spend a day (or more) on the Texas Gulf Coast.
Of course, since this is the Porsche Club, Sue and I decided to
drive our 2008 Cayenne (the base model with the 3.6-liter VR6)
to this unusual destination, although any four-door all-wheeldrive
Porsche is easily capable of the journey.
Being enthusiasts of so-called “blue” highways (secondary
roads that used to be identified on paper maps with blue lines),
we avoided I-35 and I-37 once we passed Waco, following smaller
state and US highways down to Palacios, TX, then picking up
State Highway 35 (not I-35) south and following it through Port
Lavaca and Aransas Pass to Corpus Christi. There we stayed in a
hotel not far from the Intracoastal Waterway, the body of water
that separates Padre Island from the mainland.
Upon leaving the paved park road and entering the beach,
I stopped, put the Cayenne in neutral, and flipped the lever to
low range. That’s one unique feature of the first-generation
Cayennes (2003 to 2010) – they only have a 6-speed Tiptronic S
(not counting the 1.8% of base models and GTSs that were sold
with 6-speed manuals), but they have dual range, a locking center
differential, and an optional locking rear differential. By the way,
redline in sixth gear in low range is about 60 mph, so don’t try it
on the highway!
In the accompanying photos, you may notice that the Cayenne
sports high-profile off-road tires. Before we struck out on this
journey, we weren’t sure how deep the sand was going to be, so
we opted to drive down on our off-road tires on 17-inch wheels,
instead of 40-series street tires on 20-inch wheels (what, doesn’t
everybody have two sets of wheels for their Porsches?). But as
it turns out, the street tires would have worked just fine. The
majority of vehicles on the beach were Jeeps and fourwheel-drive
pickup trucks, but we also saw Ford Focuses
and Buick Regals happily cruising up and down the wet
packed sand on their all-season tires.
Anyway, the first few miles of beach had lots of
traffic (most of which was traveling above the posted
15-mph speed limit), but past the 5-mile marker, the
crowds thinned out, and by mile marker 16, there were
no beachgoers for as far as the eye could see in either
direction. We pulled in toward the dunes out of traffic,
put up the shelter, and enjoyed the day.
Later that afternoon, we were ready to head back to
the hotel, so after packing up, we faced north and drove
back up the beach. At mile 15 there was a turnoff that led
to an overnight camping area, so we detoured to see what
it looked like. There was about 200 feet of loose, dry sand between
the beach and a gravel road on the other side of the dunes. This
made the Cayenne’s AWD system work a little bit, but we never felt
like we were going to get stuck; to make sure, though, we kept up
our momentum until we were back on solid ground.
We passed a large overlanding group on the way out;
there were probably ten or twelve vehicles and lots of tents in
an enclave. It looked like they had spent the night and were
going to spend
before they left.
That got me
thinking that a
group of fourdoor
the Gulf Coast.
On Monday we took a different route back to D/FW, still
on blue roads, with the exception of State Highway 130, the
toll road from Seguin to Georgetown that boasts an 85-mph
speed limit in its southern half (it drops to 80 near Circuit of
the Americas). We couldn’t pass that up!
The point of this story is that your four-door Porsche is capable
of going places that you might not have considered. The next time
you have the opportunity, take your Cayenne, Macan, or even your
Panamera 4 off the beaten path. You might be surprised at how
well it’ll do! Just remember that the sand gets everywhere . . . .
Autocross Series: Event 4, Lone Star Park, May 24
by Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair
directives have started
to relax enough to start
getting back to the real
driving fun again. We had
a total of 92 entries and
552 timed runs, averaging
122 runs per hour. Equipe
Rapide, our Autocross
partner, adjusted to
such as required masks
to enter the building and
when closer to others,
social distancing, preregistering
limited to 100
drivers, inside-car self
tech, no loaner helmets
provided, bringing your
own water, no spectators
invited, no in-car
instruction or ride-alongs,
equipment wipe-downs between users, only two workers
in the timing trailer, the announcer stationed in another
vehicle, and no post-event trophy presentations. For the
most part, everyone on site was courteous and respectful,
followed the special rules appropriately, and adapted to
make it work for all of us.
The course was a very fast sweeper layout with two
slalom sections. The forecast warned of heavy rain and
thunderstorms that held off until after the last cars
finished. Entrants were split into three run/work groups
with the Porsche Classes driving in group one. We had
13 Porsches that fit into four of our classes. Igor Tulandin
continues to scare everyone with how quick he is driving
his Cayenne GTS in class P0, splitting the other Porsche

the Ed Mayo 1972 911S and the Schnoerrs’ 914 2.0 going
after it again with two drivers in each car. This time it
was Mark and Sigrid, ahead of Ed and Julia. The first
three cars were covered by 1.54 seconds. In class P2,
Russ Rosenberg finished first in his 996 Cab with the
hardtop in place, ahead of Doug Edney and Robby Dunn,
in a 996 Coupe and Turbo, respectively. The Big Dogs
were running in class P3, where the first three cars were
covered by just 0.518 seconds. Owen Coulman took first
in his 996 GT3, Steve Krysil of PCNA, brought a new
992 coupe and took second, with Wendy Shoffit in her
Caymen GT4 in third. Scott and Dawn Marie Gray are
getting training under fire learning to drive their well-setup
Cayman S with these guys.
In Raw times as well as

Maverick Marktpreis: Auctions
by Peter Wen
Two years ago this feature article with a funny German title,
Marktpreis, or Market Price, was born. The objective was to
inform our members about Porsche pricing trends. Multiple
resources were referenced each month including Excellence
magazine’s annual Porsche Buyer’s Guide and Hagerty’s Vehicle
Valuation Tool. While these tools are very handy and easy to use,
they are not complete without actual sales data. For that, we turn
to the auction sites, bringatrailer.com (BAT) and pcarmarket.com.
BAT is a very popular digital 24/7 auction platform to buy
and sell classic, collector, and enthusiast vehicles. At any given
time, more than 40 Porsches are up for auction. Lively real time
comments from the seller, potential buyers and the peanut gallery
make every auction a spectator event. Go check it out at https://
bringatrailer.com/porsche/. The past auction results are listed at

Another online auction site is https://www.pcarmarket.com/.
This is a Porsche ONLY auction site. Similar to BAT, all cars go
through a vetting process and have to be accepted for auction.
Live comments are permitted. One unique feature is the Deal
Tank. This is where you can make offers to buy cars that did not
meet Reserve for up to 30 days. Last checked on pcarmarket.com
on 5/30, there were 18 live auctions and 98 Porsches in the Deal
Tank. View auction results here:
These two websites are great tools to add to your toolbox. The

Coffee, Cars & Conversation
by Bill Kruder
photos provided by author
So I don’t even know where to
begin this month. Normally I tell
you how I met someone at an event
and the rest is history. Well it’s safe
to say I knew Wendy and James
long before they knew who this old
man was. Matter of fact, I watched
their daughter Jasmine grow up via
Slipstream. Speaking of Jasmine,
she is now wrapping up her degree
in Interactive Game Design from
the Savannah College of Art and
Design. What’s even better? PCA
has recognized her and she recently
joined the club with all her years
of membership having endured her
parent’s club journey.
Ok, back to the story. I joined
PCA in 1996 and think I first
started reading about these two
right away from all the events they
attended. In 2000 it all began with
them taking on the Newsletter
Editor position. Then for the next
15-16 years, while I am missing
in action, I’m watching these two
take on one leadership role after
the other. Matter of fact they both
not only volunteer or run for office
once, they have a history of serving
in most positions four times!
How about this for a Maverick
first family? In 2001 they were
awarded PCA Family of the Year.
Then in 2005, Wendy was awarded
Mav of the Year along with PCA
Enthusiast of the Year.
James (not too shabby himself)
was awarded Mav of the Year in
2010 and in 2017 Past President
David Robertson created the James
Shoffit Mav of the Year award in
Unlike my normal short opening
where I would say “so, here is the
next in my series of conversations
I would like to share with you….”
frankly this couple earned a grand
entrance and is just too big a deal
not to list everything they have
done for our club.
2000 Editor: Wendy and James Shoffit
2001 & 2002 President: James Shoffit
2001, 2002, 2005 & 2006 Editor:
2007 & 2008 President: James Shoffit
2009 thru 2012 Zone Rep: James Shoffit
2011 thru 2015 PCA National
Newsletter Chair: Wendy Shoffit
2015 thru 2017 Secretary:
So, let me recap for you: between
them they have been President
FOUR times, Editor FOUR times,
Zone Rep FOUR times, and
Secretary THREE times (and it’s not
FOUR yet as they aren’t finished!)
Oh wait - they have attended
19 Parades too. Matter of fact,
in 2004, when it was held in Fort
Worth, James added the technology
to scoring that is still used today.
So NOW here is the next in my
series of “conversations” I would
like to share with you:
James and Wendy Shoffit,
members since 1997
Owner 1978 911SC, 2016 Cayman
GT4, and 2017 Macan Turbo
Bill Kruder: So where are you from?
Wendy Shoffit: I was born in
southern California in Escondido;
it’s about 30 miles northeast of San
Diego. My dad was in the Navy
out there. We then moved back to
Fort Worth where I went to school.
I went to Dunbar Magnet High
School for Science and Engineering.
James Shoffit: Not many know this
but I was born in Cairo; no, not the
one down by Beaumont, but THE
Cairo in Egypt. My dad was in the
oil service business and we moved a
lot; how about 22 countries in my
first two years (smiling big). When
we returned stateside, we lived in
Utah and Wyoming and then we
settled in Sherman, TX when I was
about 11 years old.
BK: Let’s talk college?
WS: I attended A&M for a year,
then James happened (laughing).
JS: I went to UNT and earned a BS in
Computer Science with a minor in Math.
BK: Hmm, sounds like there is story
there. How did you two meet then,
being so far apart?
WS: Well first of all let’s be clear:
he is older (laughing). We are both
into computer stuff, and there was
this on-line chat called RELAY
where we met and talked all night
as I remember. So we dated for
three months before he popped the
question, and then married nine
months later in 1991. Hence, I only
attended A&M one year as James
was too good to pass up (smiling).
BK: And he concurs, I might add.
BK: So have you always lived here then?
WS: No, in 1992-94 we lived in Pennsylvania. James
took a job with ICI Explosives and I took a job with a
law office as an administrative assistant based on the
computer skills I had.
JS: It’s while with ICI that I learned SAP which would
later be what I built my own business on.
WS: Then in 1994 we moved back, settling in Irving,
where we still live in our first and only house.
BK: Ok, let’s talk cars. What was your first car?
JS: Mine was a 1966 VW bug. It was the same car that
my parents drove to the hospital when I born in Cairo.
I drove it all through high school.
WS: My first two were kind of interesting; the first was
my grandparents’ 1976 Caprice Classic, followed by a
custom Dodge van. Yes, a VAN.
BK: How about your first Porsche?
JS: That was our 1990 (964) C4 Cab, white with a
black top over camel, Wendy insisted on it (grinning).
WS: Well it’s true. He was driving a Mitsubishi 3000GT
and we had just had Jasmine. This was 1997 and we
couldn’t fit a car seat in the back. Just so happened
Porsche made a car seat and the rest is history (laughing).
BK: So why the Cab?
JS: My dream car was a slant nose turbo cab; we found
this one in the paper. And if you can’t have your dream
car, a 964 C4 kind of works: 0-60 in about 5 seconds,
8.5 seconds later it is at 102, and tops out at 157 mph.
Those that know me know the one thing I like is speed.
BK: How about the
JS: We bought the
1978 in 2000 to
solely track it; we
still have it and store
it in our garage at
BK: So where did this love for Porsche and speed come from?
WS: Well, my family was more into, I guess you would
say, American muscle, so I blame James for the Porsche.
JS: As a kid I would go into a dealer and read all the
magazines about them. My dad loved them but couldn’t
afford one, hence his VW.
BK: So how did you two get so interested in autocross
and the track?
WS: When we lived in PA a friend of ours autocrossed,
and once I saw it I thought “I like that!”
JS: I have always liked to drive fast and there is no
better place to do that than in a controlled environment.
Matter of fact, I was so hooked on it I Club Raced for
BK: Share with me again the GT4 story. I know it’s been
told, but the Readers
Digest version will do.
WS: We had just taken
ownership of our GT4
from David Loder at
Porsche Plano. We had
put like 50 miles on the
car before heading out
to Rennsport Reunion
V. So we head out,
obeying the required 2000-mile break in period. We
arrive and we parked on “Cayman Island.” As luck
would have it, Porsche wanted to film a commercial
in a GT4, but didn’t want to use their own. So they
used our car as the sample car, which they took out on
the track, driven by Mark Weber, Earl Bamber, Jochen
Mass, and Derek Bell. When they were all finished up
we had them all sign the underside of the hood, along
with Jeff Zwart, Patrick Long, and Andreas Preuninger.
And there you have it . . . 23 years and still continuing
to Drive Friendships! Thank you, James and Wendy
Shoffit, for a great Maverick legacy!
UPCOMING MAVERICK REGION EVENTS

Toy Tuesday: What else to do when you aren’t driving
forward by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor
It seems like only yesterday that we were cooped
up at home (garage) with nothing to do but play with
our toys both large and small. Like any good collectors,
many of us just can’t stop and find ourselves with
“reminders” of our passion sprinkled through house
and home. Club President Bill Kruder likes to keep us
engaged and alert with social media challenges. These
were some of the member submissions of a recent
“Toy Tuesday”. I’d say we have a problem, but I don’t
think it’s really a problem just yet.

Good Samaritan Canned Food Drop-Off
by Jimmy Gallegos, Region Charity Chair
photo provided by author
It was one of the first sunny weekends of
the Covid-19 quarantine, and several events
were planned for the Memorial Day weekend,
which included Mavs canned food drop off
and cash donations for Good Samaritans in
Garland. Several Mavs dropped off canned
food totaling 523 pounds and a generous
$600.00 in cash donations. With the club
matching donation of $500.00 we were able
to donate $1100.00 to a very worthy cause.
One of our members drove all the way from
Weatherford just to donate canned food!
Good Samaritans volunteers were busy
sorting canned goods, but Director Pam
Swendig made sure we had help collecting
canned food from our members. Special
thanks go to Good Sam volunteer Johnny,
who is a regular volunteer at the agency and
was great help to our members.
Good Samaritans of Garland, “Good
Sam,” was formed in 1983 from an alliance
of several Garland faith communities with the
intent to provide centrally-located services for
neighbors in need of assistance and providing
food with kindness and compassion to
hungry and food-insecure neighbors living in
Garland, Rowlett, and Sachse. In May 2020
Good Sam served 3,715 people and assisted
“Many of Good Sam’s housed families
are caregivers for elderly parents, raising
grandchildren, disabled, or facing a family
emergency or other unexpected life challenge.
In many circumstances, assistance is
temporary and extremely valuable in helping
families move forward through a difficult
time. Often, food assistance reduces anxiety
and helps families from falling further into
overwhelming need and hopelessness.”
The event turned out very well for Good
Samaritans and will enable them to serve
many people who are in need especially
during this 2020 pandemic. Pam and her
team work very hard every day to help the
communities and make all donations count
for the communities.
The drop off canned food and cash
donations events will continue as people are
in more need than ever before. Thank you
for your generosity and let’s continue to give
back to our communities!

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor
by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor
I did it. I put an electric Porsche on the cover. It used to
be that we only needed to decide between two camps and
now there seem to be three. Are you air-cooled, watercooled
or electric? Such strange days.
It’s subtle I know. You might not even notice it, but it’s
there whether we like it or not. Electric cars are coming
faster and faster now, both literally and figuratively. I have
so many questions. How will they change motorsport,
and collecting, and heck even commuting. But more
importantly how will they change the road trip?
I know to many of us a road trip brings back memories
of the back of a van or station wagon, roadside stands of
peaches or pecans or Indian jewelry, and of course the
all of the new and unknown restaurants along the way.
The only thing our parents planned were the hotels at
the end of the day. The rest was an adventure. But unless
those peach stands have a charge port, I think those days
could be numbered. Life with batteries is going to have
to be a whole lot more structured for a while. It’s kind of
bleak; there are only so many times I can stop at Collin
Street Bakery on the way to Houston to charge my Tesla.
(Editors note: the mention of a Tesla if for illustrative
purposes only. I don’t have one, don’t really want one
and don’t know where else you can charge on the way
to Houston.) It’s not all doom and gloom though; with
autonomous driving getting better and better, we can
now play the alphabet game and “would you rather”
with the family without worrying about our attention
wandering from our driving. Such joy. I guess as long
as my new automated pilot takes the corners quickly I’ll
learn to adapt.
I want to get serious for a moment. As I mentioned
earlier, these are strange days. Just as we have different
opinions about which are the best Porsches and whether
or not we’re ready for an all electric road trip, we have
different opinions about issues that we are facing today
both collectively and individually. Life has changed.
People have feelings and opinions that might not marry
up with our own. But without people, we have cars in a
garage. We need to take care of each other now more than
ever. My hope is that we’ll be able see past the cars and
the opinions and see each other a little more clearly.
Anyway, I hope that you and yours are well, and that
you’ve had time to take care of those “someday” projects.
I’m going to make sure my tank is topped up and ready to
go and Enjoy the drive.
