Open your mind: Travel back to 1978 and meet the first 928
By Jim Doerr
The 35th anniversary of the Porsche 928 may seem less significant when stacked up next to the 911s 50th anniversary. I mean, really, how could the 928 ever compete with it?  And we all know as history has played out, the fate of these two Stuttgart wunderkinds chose different paths.  But an anniversary is just a date — a point or place in time.  What matters is how it makes us feel when we take look back and remember.  And what really matters is how that point in time can influence our future.

Escape 2013: Escape to L.A. Tour Highlight — Joshua Tree Tour
PCA







Tour highlight: Joshua Tree tour will let you experience the famous roads of the San Gabriel Mountains with a drive up to Big Bear and from there a drive to the Joshua National Park. The park straddles both the Mojave Desert in the north and the Colorado Desert in the south. Joshua Tree has long been an inspiration for rock 'n' roll bands such as the Eagles and the Irish band U2 who named their 1987 album Joshua Tree.

After touring Joshua Tree members of the tour will head to the Palm Springs Aerial Tram for a ride to the top of Mount San Jacinto where one can see the Coachella Valley laid out before you.

Dinner will be in Palm Springs, famous as the winter playground for Hollywood and the Rat Pack.

A simple drive back to the hotel will complete the tour.

Video: Lime Rock Video Track Map with Sam Posey
Lime Rock Park via YouTube
Lime Rock offers drivers challenges they don't face at other tracks. Often referred to as "The Bull Ring," it is arduous, difficult and above all rewards those who take risks. Many corners are so fast that they can be taken almost flat, but not quite, leaving drivers to gamble with their right foot as much as they dare. Listen in as Sam Posey takes us around the track, explaining some of the gentle nuances to achieving a fast lap.

Porsche Photo of the Week
PCA

My pride and joy, a 1985 928 S. The car is completely stock except for the 17" speed lines and some exhaust work. The car was completely stripped and re-painted last year in original Meteor Grey Metallic. I took this photo last year on a cruise around Georgian Bay, Canada.
