We all speak one language — Porsche
By Pablo Deferrari
I normally don't engage in posts on Facebook, but I made an exception the other night because it seemed like a provocative one. I went something like this: "What is your attitude toward non-928 owners who think anything other than a 911 is not a true Porsche? I like being different and feel that the 911 yuppies see their rides as status symbols. Your thoughts?" Now, I'm sure you've come across this sort of question before, possibly with different numbers in the equation, comparing one camp to another. I've lost count, but something about this particular question triggered an involuntary reaction to respond. Thing is, I was once one of those guys to whom the post was making reference.

Video: Living the Porsche
Autohaus Hamilton via YouTube
Living The Porsche is a film by Sydney, Australia-based company, SoDUS Films. The guys from SoDUS followed Grant and the team at AutoHaus for more than 8 months to capture stories here at the workshop, away at the track and from some of our clients. The film was premiered in Sydney, we were there along with 250 of our good friends. The night was a huge success but obviously not everyone could get there to see the work. Here is the full-length version of Living The Porsche and we are proud to share it with you. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Many thanks to the guys at SoDUS films for letting us share it exclusively on the Autohaus channel.

Video: Ariel Atom Supercharged vs Porsche Panamera Turbo S
EVO via YouTube
The 550kg Ariel Atom 3.5 Supercharged and 1995kg Porsche Panamera Turbo S are cars that will never battle each other in everyday life, but on the drag strip, a comparison promises much: they may be completely different shapes and sizes, and with different purposes in life, but their straight-line performance numbers suggest a very close fight. Light weight versus big power — which is your money on?

Greatest supercars of all time

They're the cars of which dreams are made, passions are inflamed and imaginations fueled. They are what makes loving cars such an easy thing to do.

Register for the Monterey Parade!
PCA
Parade will be held Sunday, June 15, until Saturday, June 21. Registration is now open. A guide to all events is on the Parade website at parade2014.pca.org, and you should use that to help you plan your week. All registrations will be accepted but be aware some events fill quickly and then go to a “waitlist” status.

The Parade registration system pulls its information from your PCA account, so please ensure you have all your information up-to-date, and that you know your PCA website logon information (user name and password). We especially need a current email, as all Parade information is sent to that email.  

We are fortunate to have blocks at five different hotels this year — you will be in good company no matter which one you choose!  Once you have completed your Parade registration and have received the confirmation email (within a few seconds) with both your entrant number and special hotel authorization codes, you will be ready to reserve your accommodations. Remember that lodging reservations are subject to availability — you will want to book as soon as possible after registering for Parade to ensure your preference.
