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.

Like many people these days, our vacation plans have

been cancelled or put on hold. But, for those who still

have jobs, vacation time continues to accrue. And in

Frank’s case, he had accumulated nearly two weeks of

vacation time he needed to use or lose by the end of July.

What to do . . . .

Neither of us really wanted to fly anywhere at this

point. But we both have mothers who live out of state:

one in Tennessee and one in Indiana. They both have been

focused on staying in the comfort of their homes as much

as possible, but had dropped hints that they were getting

kind of lonely. So, we decided to take a road trip!

Friday, July 3: Dallas to Collierville, TN. Our typical

route over the Christmas holiday is to drive to Frank’s

parents’ house just outside Memphis, then drive the second

day to my Mom’s house in Fort Wayne, Indiana. On

this trip, we followed that path, but Frank’s mother was

actually out of town for the weekend, visiting her sister, so

we would see her on the way back.

Saturday, July 4: Collierville, TN to Fort Wayne, IN. A

full day on the road, with a stop for lunch at White Castle

in Bowling Green, KY. No inside dining available that day,

so we went through the drive up window and ate in the car

(sorry, VW!). The bridge across the Ohio River at Louisville

looks kind of like the Dallas bridges to nowhere. Arrived at

Mom’s house in time for dinner. Outside temperature: only

79 degrees at 5:02 pm! When’s the last time we saw temps

like that here?

Sunday, July

5: Spent the day

at my brother’s

lake house on

Lake Pleasant,

on the Indiana/

Michigan border.

Very relaxing day

- apparently I fell

asleep outside, on a lawn chair in the shade overlooking the

lake. I was told by one of my nephews that I was snoring

(no photo available).

Monday, July 6: Checked a few things off the list around

Mom’s house, and later had dinner with my mother and

godmother (best friends since high school). We couldn’t

find a restaurant open that evening, so we picked up a pizza

and took it over to Judy’s house - thankfully, she tends to

be well-stocked on wine.

Tuesday, July 7: Looking through some old photos,

found one of me and my grandfather checking out a mid-

60s Corvette; not sure if that was before or after we admired

the Porsche 356 next to it. Then after a pre-birthday sushi

lunch for Frank, we headed south to visit my sister and

Board Botschaft: The “Moms” Tour

by Chris Flaugh, Region Treasurer

her husband at their home in Noblesville, IN. Grilled pork

chops for dinner, and more wine!

Wednesday, July 8: Frank’s birthday - he received the

traditional birthday greeting my sister bestows on her four

boys. Then we departed from Noblesville to Collierville,

TN. Arrived in time for Frank to enjoy a southern birthday

dinner of his mother’s homemade fried chicken, okra, and

mashed potatoes (and some champagne). Back to Dallas at

the end of the week.

Total miles driven: 2,292. Average MPG: 40.2. No

speeding tickets. Sorry, we didn’t take a Porsche on this

road trip, drove the VW Passat TDI. Next road trip will be

in a Porsche. Meanwhile, this was a great opportunity to get

out for a change of scenery and to see some people we had

not seen for a while. Phone calls, Zoom calls, Facebook

group calls, etc. are all great, but sometimes you just need a

bit more personal interaction. Everyone has their own

comfort level, but this worked for us! We travelled at our

own pace, in the safety

of our own car, avoided

crowds, limited

personal interactions

as much as possible,

and wore a mask when

appropriate. Stay safe

out there!

COVID-19 Updates for Maverick Region

Maverick Region COVID Communication Chair, Wendy Shoffit

Well, as you know, there has been good news and

bad news this past month related to COVID-19. First

the bad: apparently, we Texans have been “bad puddy

tats” who haven’t been properly socially distancing,

wearing masks, and keeping healthy. So, positive test

results for this have been spiking since the latter part of

June. I think everyone has been tired of being cooped

up and are desperate to get out, not always making the

best decisions. So now Governor Abbott has mandated

mask wearing and is closing some businesses again. We

will see if more closings will happen or if we can reverse

this trend.

The good news is that we Mavericks have successfully

had a few events and we’ve generally had good luck

with people behaving. People haven’t minded signing

the communicable disease waiver, as we have 128

people who have signed to date. I think it’s a small price

to pay to be able to gather with your PCA friends at

tours and happy hours. The one thing I ask for future

signers: pretty please with sugar on top print your name

LEGIBLY. Your signature can be on par with doctors,

but the printed version needs to be readable. Take your

time. You just need to sign it once. Please and thank you!

The future of events depends largely on the local

governing bodies and their restrictions. If they ban

large events outright, we obviously need to cancel

some. Just know we will do everything we can to meet

government regulations to meet safely and to protect all

our members. We will do our best to keep you informed

about events that can happen and which cannot.

Be healthy and well!

Wendy Shoffit

COVID Communications Chair


Julia Cleath

Julia has been with the PCA a little over 4 years. Julia has been a true

Porsche fan dating back more years than I’m sure she’d like to say. When

going to any of the club events, she’s not content with riding as navigator in

her husband’s 911 SC, no she gets behind the wheel of her 1988 Guards

Red 944 and drafts behind him. Other times you might find her in the

driver’s seat of her Macan. Julia is always helping out at many of our Social

events putting her loving touch on what she does with that friendly smile.

Most recently she has teamed up with JimmyG our Charity Chair and his

wife Phyllis on a great cause. They have worked together to organize a fund

raiser in conjunction with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.

Julia helped design and organize the sales of the New Porsche logo t-shirts

substituting the O in Porsche to the pink ribbon. You may have seen a few

of these great looking shirts at the June Mavs & Mochas where she helped

raise close to $600. If you haven’t purchased yet or made a donation, visit

http://mav.pca.org/go/hope to help the club reach their goal of $2,500. This

amount will allow us to pack 50 “Hope Kits” that each include a personal

note from the packer with all the necessary items to support and care for

someone battling breast cancer. I’m always so happy to see the different

roads we take to help others while Driving Friendships. These are

outstanding examples of how our club stays Fueled By Volunteers. Please

join me in Congratulating Julia as our Maverick of the Month.

Tech session recap: Fifth Gear (via Zoom)

by Micheal Baynton, Tech Sessions Co-chair

photo provided by Fifth Gear and Bill Kruder

It’s too bad that Mazda has trademarked the phrase

“Zoom Zoom”—it would have been the perfect title for

this month’s tech article. So just close your eyes for a sec

and imagine that I usurped it anyway…

Yes, even our tech sessions have been drastically affected

by Covid, so for the safety of our members and vendors,

we went online in July and held our first-ever virtual tech

session on Saturday, July 11 via Zoom. Our host was Fifth

Gear in Lewisville (FYI--they also have a facility in Argyle.),

and it was a resounding success based on feedback from

our members that signed up and watched.

Fifth Gear presented a comprehensive overview of

Porsche maintenance facts and myths, covering everything

from oil change schedules and suggested brands, fluid

replacement intervals, IMS concerns, and a variety of

other topics. The online chat feature was used to great

success to answer members’ questions in real time, and

Fifth Gear even had a garage full of Porsches available

for hands-on show-and-tell. Their experts were able to

climb into and under cars to highlight various aspects of

maintenance requirements and offered a lot of practical

tips and tricks. They answered as many questions as

possible during our allotted time, and even stayed late

in the chat to answer additional questions. To top things

off, they awarded premium gift certificates for the four

best online questions PLUS $100 gift certificates to lucky

members who signed up for the session—a very gracious

gesture! Many thanks to everyone at Fifth Gear that

accepted this challenge and committed to moving this

tech session from shop to screen.

As we look to the rest of the year, we hope to get back to “live”

sessions as soon as it is safe to do so. If we can find additional

informative topics that we can practically and thoroughly present

via Zoom, we will definitely bring those to you as well. We will

update our tech session calendar on our site and will keep you

informed via social media. In the meantime, stay safe and Zoom!

You might have seen some “pop-ups” posted on social media. These are

not club affiliated events, just enthusiasts that have gotten together with

friends to create a safe place to share stories and get some relief from the

day to day grind. Coffee and cars, but not Cars and Coffee; think much,

much smaller. Some meet every week and others happen more

spontaneously. They all have Porsches in common but they aren’t

exclusive, come as you are and meet some new friends.

Never Say Forever . . .

by Robert Turner

What defines a “keeper,” a forever car? What makes

you want to hold on to a rolling piece of steel, rubber,

plastic, and fabric when the rust sets in, the trim sags, the

motor is telling you it needs some TLC, or it’s just begging

you to take it out on the road and thrash it? What make

you want to keep it? Is it sentimentality or an investment

or has it become part of the family? Porsche AG tells us

that over 70% of Porsches manufactured are still on the

road. So, for many of us, the Porsche sitting in the garage

is our forever car.

Me? Not so much. I’ve never been the sentimental sort

when it comes to cars. Do I miss several of the Porsches I’ve

bought and sold? You bet! That ’76 930 Turbo Carrera?

Yep! Or how about the slate-gray metallic ’93 968. Oh

yeah. Or LMNHED (Lemonhead) 1 – the ’02 Boxster S in

Speed Yellow with factory speedster humps. Definitely. I

want that one back for sure. But every time I have declared

a car a keeper, a forever car – well, its days are numbered.

I’ve owned a lot of cars; seems like there is a new one

in the garage all the time. Funny thing though: a majority

were used (or maybe it’s more politically correct to say

“pre-owned”). What does this list say about us and our

automotive choices? Well except for Porsches, we get tired

of cars pretty fast. We say we’re going to keep them forever,

but don’t, and for the most part have owned a little bit of

everything. But I will say that when I sell a car, it’s usually

in much better shape than when I bought it. Not bragging,

but buying one of my cars is a good idea. Why? It will be

spotlessly clean, the maintenance will be up to date and

(especially with the Porsches) it may have some very tasty

mods installed.

You see, when it comes to Porsches, I have a problem.

I call it the Slippery Slope — I can’t help myself, I just

have to make the car better. My wife commented about my

“hobby” and noted that my automotive excess tended to

be very expensive. “But at least I’m not addicted to golf!”

I proudly pointed out, and then went on to say that at least

she was not a golf widow. No, she countered, she was a

garage widow – which amounts to same thing and based

on the cost of Porsches plus mods, she pointed out that we

would probably come out ahead if I started playing golf

2-3 times a week. Hmmm, she had me there . . . .

So I thought I would compile a list of all the vehicles

we have owned or been assigned (meaning company cars)

since my first 1965 Ford Mustang (listed in chronological

order from first vehicle owned to most recent). This list

includes the cars my wife drove up to and when we met, as

well as the cars that I have purchased for my two sons (but

still held the title). It is quite a long list. There are some

pretty bad vehicles along the way - but some really good

ones too - so enjoy.

1. 1965 Ford Mustang (my first car, light green, 289

V8 with factory 4-speed)

2. 1975 Ford Thunderbird (my wife’s first car)

3. 1972 Chevy Vega (I drove this for six months until

the motor let go)

4. 1980 Puch Moped (really awful college

transportation, but dirt cheap)

5. 1976 Honda CB 400F (upgrade from Puch; rode it

from upstate NY to TX)

6. 1979 Fiat Strada (car parents gave me to get me

away from the cycle)

7. 1972 Porsche 914 (1st Porsche; whole stories about this one)

8. 1985 Suzuki GS550E (after Porsche 914 rusted

away, it was my main ride)

9. 1980 Ford Thunderbird (wife’s second car)

10. 1965 Ford Mustang (different from one listed

above; split time with Suzuki)

11. 1986 Acura Integra (1st new car! Yeah, traded in

the Suzuki on it)

12. 1990 Acura Integra ES (2nd new car)

13. 1986 Nissan Pulsar (ouch, we had one of those –

actually was my wife’s car)

14. 1987 Porsche 944S (2nd Porsche; our first son

rode around in this)

15. 1990 Ford Aerostar Minivan (company car; yuck,

ewww, terrible)

16. 1993 Mazda 626 (leveraged a poopy diaper to get

a deal on this)

17. 1993 Dodge Caravan (company car, meh…)

18. 1990 BMW 525i (our first Beemer)

19. 1996 Dodge Caravan (company car, meh x2)

20. 1999 Ford Explorer (great story about this one.

Look for the new e-book Kindle release)

21. 1999 Dodge Intrepid (company car; it was purple

and we had it six weeks)

22. 1999 BMW 528i (another great story included in

upcoming Kindle release)

23. 1976 Porsche 911 Turbo Carrera 930 (BAD BOY,

what ‘cha gonna do!?)

24. 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo 951 (1st track car)

25. 2001 Ford Excursion (needed to tow track car

above to the track – duh)

26. 1999 Porsche Boxster (Bad Boy=Garage queen,

951=Track Car, Boxster=Fun)

27. 1992 BMW 525i Touring (another great story in

the upcoming Kindle eBook)

14 August

28. 2001 Volvo S60 (another short-timer; it came and

went fast)

29. 1983 Mercedes 230E (Bullet; great stories abound)

30. 2005 Honda CR-V (meh!)

31. 2006 Audi A3 (answer when told to get rid of

930, 951, and Boxster)

32. 2007 Honda CR-V (meh x2!)

33. 2004 VW Touareg V8 (nice SUV if we could keep

it running)

34. 1992 Mazda Miata (1st Miata track car)

35. 1993 Porsche 968 (yeah, I know, should have kept

this one)

36. 2001 Porsche Boxster S (1st yellow one, totaled at

Boxstoberfest no less)

37. 2007 Ford F-150 (older son’s 1st car)

38. 1995 Jeep Wrangler Sahara (younger son’s 1st car)

39. 2007 VW Passat (answer to Touareg, was

supposed to be a keeper)

40. 2006 Porsche Cayman S (properly set up for track events)

41. 2008 VW GTI (older son’s 2nd car)

42. 2004 Porsche Cayenne (new tires for Passat meant

its days were numbered)

43. Porsche 944 Turbo (another 951 track car; fun to

drive, but always broken)

44. 2007 BMW 530i (replaced the Jeep, younger son’s

2nd car)

45. 2002 Porsche Boxster S (the red one; strangely I

never bonded with this one)

46. 2013 Mini Cooper Countryman (traded GTI for


47. 2006 Mini Cooper S JCW GP Kit (#1393 of 2015

built; loved this Mini rocket)

48. 1999 Mazda Miata (The Beast; test platform for

Track Dog Racing)

49. 2013 Ford F-150 Platinum (towed The Beast to

and from track)

50. 2015 Jeep Cherokee (oldest son’s current car)

51. 2002 Porsche Boxster S (LMNHED 1, I want this

one back)

52. Hyundai Elantra GT (youngest son’s current car)

53. 2014 Porsche Cayman S (Lemon Head 2, not

labeled a forever car;-)

54. 2013 Porsche Cayenne Diesel (replaced Mini,

thank goodness)

So, a couple of observations.

My first company car was a Ford

Aerostar minivan, which for some

reason my father-in-law insisted on

calling an Astroloid. Nowadays,

when I see a clapped-out Aerostar/

Astroloid creeping down the street

I wonder how it’s still on the road.

They all have a rusted patina that

just screams “please take me to the

nearest junkyard.” Come to think

of it, back when I drove mine, I

wonder how it stayed on the road.

It was beyond terrible. The shortest

time I “owned” a car? Six weeks. A

colleague ordered a purple Dodge

Intrepid and left the company

shortly after he took delivery. Since

my lease was up, I got stuck with it.

I left the company six weeks later.

My about-to-be ex-boss asked me if

I was leaving because of the purple

car? I said yes – paused – then

laughed. But really, that car was

cursed. The longest we have owned

a car? My wife’s Mini Countryman.

It stayed with us over five years.

But, good news, it was replaced

with the Cayenne Diesel.

Wow, that is quite a list! Over

50+ cars in a lifetime. And I have

no doubt that 60 is easily attainable

(I am sure my wife is cringing as she

reads this). So tell me, what should

our 55th car be? What Porsche will

I be adding to the collection next?

Oh, and I have the contact info of

the couple that bought LMNHED

1 - just saying.

And on that exhaust note . . . .


Porsche Service: Water Drain Service

by Steven Taylor, Porsche Dallas

photo provided by Mike O’Hare

At Park Place Porsche in Dallas, we recognize your

vehicle requires factory-certified service expertise.

That’s what you’ll find at Park Place. With specialized

technicians using state-of-the-art equipment in advanced

service bays to keep your car running like new.

To keep your Porsche running at a high-performance

level, it is important to understand your vehicle’s needs-

such as a drain clean service. This includes clearing and

testing all of the water drains in the vehicle.

Steven Taylor, Shop Foreman Park Place Porsche,

breaks down how significant a drain clean service is for

your Porsche.

“This service is important to get done because over

time leaves, pollen and general debris will clog the

drains. Once the drains are clogged, water will begin to

back up. When this occurs, there is a high potential that

the water will begin to enter the interior of the vehicle

because of the inability to runoff. This generally will

lead to costly repairs of not only drying the interior, but

replacing electrical control units.”

A drain clean service is recommend as an annual

or semi-annual service depending on how susceptible

your vehicle is to debris. Neighborhoods with heavy

foliage are more susceptible to creating this issue for

Porsche owners.

We always encourage our clients to stay informed as

to prevent any unnecessary maintenance. Call us today

for more information on how to protect your Porsche

and schedule your service appointment!

This course was made up of a tight and technical first

Maverick Marktpreis: 911 SC

by Peter Wen

In the September 2018 issue of Slipstream, we reviewed the then, red-hot 911 SC. The second generation 911

Super Carrera had an incredible 10-year run, more than doubling in value from 2008 to 2018. Since then, the market

has stabilized. According to Hagerty, the average SC value is now $33,000, down from $33,500 two years ago.

The Super Carrera, or SC, was produced from ’78 to ’83, in the middle of the impact-bumper generation 911

production. With its superb 3.0L engine, a total of 57,890 SCs were produced.


SC Coupe 1978 - 1983 $22k-$50k

SC Targa 1978 - 1983 $20k-$45k

SC Cabriolet 1983 $19k-$44k

Source: Excellence magazine’s Porsche Buyer’s Guide

Porsche introduced 911 SC Cabriolet in 1983. It

was Porsche's first convertible since the 356 of the

mid-1960s. Cabriolet versions of the 911 have been

offered ever since.

Coffee, Cars & Conversation

by Bill Kruder

photos provided by Robert Kendrick

Sometimes friendships take a

while to form. This person and

I first met at Cars & Coffee back

in 2009. Both of us would show

up early, chat for a bit, and walk

the cars; then, when it was over we

would go our separate ways. Next

month we’d do the same, until one

month he wasn’t there. Several

months passed, and then like out

of nowhere, one month he’s back.

Heck, I thought he moved away

(laughing), but no, he had hip

surgery, not just once but

twice. Needless to say, we

picked up where we left off.

Fast forward to spring

of 2014: I had brought a

cigar to the event and as we

were leaving he said, “Hey,

I enjoy cigars - maybe we

should do that some time.”

Well, guys being guys, we

don’t exchange numbers –

heck, you have to be careful,

he could be crazy (laughing).

It’s not until the next couple

of C&C’s that we actually

do exchange numbers,

and as they say, the rest is

friendship history. As I often

kid, most people aren’t this

cautious dating.

So here is the next in my

series of “conversations” I would

like to share with you . . .

Robert Kendrick, member since 2015

Owner, 2005 996 Turbo S and

2016 Macan Turbo

Bill Kruder: So I usually start with

where are you from, but frankly

everyone wants to know: how the

heck do you fit (mind you he is 6’

9”) in your 996?

Robert Kendrick: Ha, yes that is

always the first thing people ask me

when they see me climb out of my

car! The secret is manual seats. My

red 996 had power seats, and I had

to have Stuarts move the rails back to

get me the extra three inches I needed.

My 996 turbo comes with sports

seats, which are manual, and they

have plenty of room to move back.

BK: Well ok then! Now that we

have that out of the way, where are

you from?

RK: I was born in Paris - yes that

one in France. I lived there until I

was four years old. We then moved

to North Carolina, where my dad’s

Robert Kendrick standing with some of his sports collection.

family was. From there we moved

to Pensacola, Florida then finally

settling in Jacksonville, Florida

when I was six years old.

BK: Paris, France huh?

RK: Yes, my dad was in the Air

Force, then called the Army Air

Corps. He was actually stationed at

Pearl Harbor when it was attacked.

He then was deployed to the Pacific

and eventually sent to Paris as part

of the reconstruction of France, and

that’s when he met my mom.

BK: So your dad spoke French?

RK: Oh no, not a word! Matter of fact, I

didn’t speak English and my mom didn’t

either (laughing). When we moved to

the states it was pretty strange as my

dad brought us home to his family, and

for the life of me I don’t recall how we

communicated (laughing).

BK: But Jacksonville is what you

call home?

RK: It is! Like I said I was six years

old when we moved there so I went

to Catholic grammar school and

high school there. I didn’t

stray far for college either,

attending University of

Florida in Gainesville, which

is only about 90 minutes

southwest of Jacksonville.

BK: We have something in

common about our college

years and our job in college

I hear?

RK: Yes we do! I worked at

the local JC Penney Store in

the catalog department. Had

I stayed I could have been

you (laughing).

BK: Yes, I worked at a JC

Penney store in Chicago during

college and retired from the

company 40 years later.

BK: What did you study in college


RK: I received my degree in

Advertising with a minor in Business.

BK: I know you enjoy drawing - is

that why you chose Advertising?

RK: I think that had something to

do with it. I have always enjoyed

sketching. I had an uncle who

taught art at Piedmont College

in North Carolina, and I think I

picked up that gene from him. As it

turns out I really do enjoy drawing

or sketching, and still do to this

day, using color pencil and acrylic

or charcoal.

20 August

BK: So that’s what you went into after graduating?

RK: No, I never did. I wasn’t really sure what I would do,

so my first job out of college was as an insurance adjuster in

Rome – no, not that one (laughing) – Rome, Georgia.

BK: How did you end up in DFW?

RK: Well it sure was a winding road, but after living in Rome,

I found myself taking a job in Jacksonville. Then it was off

to New York City, Orlando, Dallas (the first time in 1994),

Greensboro, and then back to

Dallas in 2001.

BK: Why did you leave and

come back?

RK: Well I was here for three

years, but then my dad became

ill so I took a job in Greensboro

to be closer to my parents. It

went from a 14-hour drive to

about six hours.

BK: So when and how did you

and your wife Laurie meet?

RK: We were kind of introduced by a mutual friend who

set us up on a blind date. This was in 1996 during my

first stay here. Then in 1997 I moved to Greensboro

and we did the long distance thing for a bit; then stuff

happened and we stopped. As it turned out, my dad

passed away in 2000 and Laurie came out to see me.

what I had earlier, but this one was modified. We would

refer to it as the “space shuttle” as it had some real

quirky things done to increase its performance.

BK: Ok, so most people don’t know about your hobby?

Time to tell.

RK: It would be my sports memorabilia collection;

specifically it’s a collection of full size football helmets.

Some years back Laurie gifted me a NY Giants helmet

signed by Pat Summerall, who

played for them as the kicker

from 1958-61, and which

happened to be his greatest

years (1959). From there it has

just kind of grown to 45-50 of

them, all signed by the players I

admired growing up or watching

in college or the NFL.

BK: So I have to ask, what is

your most prized helmet?

RK: Easy! It’s signed by Emmitt

Smith. Not only was he the

NFL’s all-time leading rusher,

but most importantly he’s a GATOR.

And there you have it . . . Driving Friendships!

BK: When did you get married then?

RK: We dated for about four years total; then in 2002 we

got married about a year after I had moved back to Dallas.

BK: Ok let’s switch gears and talk cars. What was your

first car?

RK: Oh geez - it was my neighbor’s 1968 Plymouth

Satellite; it had a 273 CI V8 and was metallic mint green.

BK: So why Porsche?

RK: Easy! What kid doesn’t dream of having one, and

heck, Brumos was in Jacksonville!

BK: First Porsche?

RK: That was in 1990. It was an ‘86 944 Turbo and it was a

Brumos dealer car. I actually had seen an ad for a 928; they

were sitting next to each other. My friend who was with me

said, “You know how expensive those water pumps are?”

Well I bought the 944; I had it for three years.

BK: Then what?

RK: Well I had several other non-Porsche cars, including

a Jeep. My next Porsche was the 1999 996, with a

supercharger of all things. From there I sold it and

bought a 2004 Signal Yellow C4S. During the same

time as the ‘04 I bought an ‘86 944 Turbo, much like

Porsche Fans Celebrate Sportscar Together Day \

photos provided by Tony Valadez

What a difference

two years makes. But

even in the eventstarved


era, people long

to get together to

celebrate the people

and things they have

in common.

Two years ago,

Park Place Porsche

Dallas teamed up

with the Porsche

Club of America –

Maverick Region

to help clients

celebrate the 70th

anniversary of the

1948 Porsche 356

“No. 1” Roadster

with a “Sportscar

Together Day” at

the Lemmon Avenue


This year, the

celebration looked

very different,

but Porschephiles

turned out in force

on June 8 to catch

up and celebrate the

72nd anniversary at

Keller’s Drive-In on

Northwest Highway

in Dallas.

“Porsche drivers

are passionate

about their cars,”

explained Patrick

Huston, Park Place

Porsche Dallas

General Manager.

“We couldn’t let this

important occasion

pass us by. So, we

invited the Porsche

Club – Maverick group to join us for a great burger

and fellowship. Everyone had a great time.”

There were a wide range of Porsches on hand,

representing classic models from the 1960s to the new

2020 Porsche Taycan 4S, Porsche’s first hybrid sportscar.

The new four-door sports sedan will go from 0-to-60

mph in 2.8 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph and a

driving range of up to 200 miles, all with the

incomparable handling, dependable quality and worldclass

styling of the iconic Porsche brand.

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor

by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor

If you’ve ever seen Bring-a-Trailer (bringatrailer.com)

you know. If you haven’t, you probably shouldn’t. Its

founder describes it as a place where “every car you see on

the site is one we wish we could have”. Dangerous words

in some households. Just the other day while checking

my email I saw a car listed on BaT that resembled one

I owned earlier in life and was drawn in to peruse the

site I promise to quit over and over. It should be easy to

unsubscribe from the emails, but it isn’t. It’s kind of like

having junk food in the house. It did raise an interesting

question though: why do we buy the cars we buy? Why

do we want to even want to buy cars in the first place?

To many buying a car is terrifying. But I’d wager we

aren’t those people. It might get a little tense during

negotiation, and we might second guess the leather

wrapped climate controls, but by and large it’s an

exhilarating experience eclipsed only by delivery and the

drive home. But why do we buy what we buy, and why oh

why do we need more than one? We’ve all heard the

psychology of a collector: 40-60 years old buying what

they longed for in high school. But that really doesn’t

begin to explain why. For some collectors it is investment

and for others it’s the thrill of the chase, the thrill of the

deal. There are lots of other solid investments around,

although paintings don’t make good noises. I’ve spoken

to quite a few of you about why you chose Porsche. The

reasons vary but are repeated: heritage, engineering,

driving dynamics...but I think it comes down to one thing.

The looks drew you in

and the rest made you

comfortable. Lust makes

us do funny things. I

swear I once bought a

Volvo solely for the space

ball shifter. We don’t

shine up our new cars

because it makes them

more comfortable or

worry about the patina

on our old cars because it

makes them faster. It’s

because we just like what

they look like. And that’s okay. No matter what got you

into your Porsche, we’re glad you’re here. So go out there

and live out your best Sixteen Candles or Steve McQueen

Le Mans fantasy, we won’t judge. Just enjoy the drive.
