Register now for Escape to Magical Orlando!
PCA
It is time to register for Escape to Magical Orlando 2014, taking place at the beautiful Coronado Springs Resort at Walt Disney World Nov. 6-9. This is a great event for the whole family. The drives this year are truly exceptional and are filling up. Some of the drives, like the Kennedy Space Center lunch with the Astronauts, are a once in a lifetime event. There will probably never be another gathering of space explorers together in one place at one time. The opportunity to visit two of the greatest race courses in the country during one event is also unmatched.

These drives are rapidly filling up so if you plan to attend please go to ClubRegistration.net and get registered. There is a separate event there for the Goody Store. There will be no on-site Goody Store so order ahead and pick up your merchandise at the event. Take a look at Escape2014.pca.org for all of the current information.

A tangerine 914-6 on display at Werks Reunion
Vimeo/Dave Nagel
This tangerine 914-6 was found several years ago in a Southern California warehouse, where it had been off the road since 1988. Beginning in 2012, this numbers-matching 914-6 was treated to a complete nut-and-bolt restoration by AIR MotorSports in Van Nuys, California, where the AIR team painstakingly disassembled and stripped the car to bare metal, and then meticulously refinished and repaired the car back to factory specifications. The car won first place in the full concours class at the LA Region PCA event in July 2014, and was honored to make the trip to Monterey to participate in the inaugural Werks Reunion on August 15.

Virginia Tudor race offers plenty of fun for Porsche fans
By Dave Hogan
Last year's merger of Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series and the American Le Mans Series created the Tudor United SportsCar Championship. Virginia International Raceway was selected for one of the 12 races in the 2014 season, and the only one in the mid-Atlantic. In spite of wet and sometimes threatening weather, PCA members and Porsche owners gathered inside the Porscheplatz tent to watch the action on the track and on TV. While the events at VIR are centered on racing, there is much more to see and do.

A Rauh Welt Porsche for a racing father and son
The Sports Car Guys
Leh Keen is a successful road racer who has driven many great racing machines. Recently, he has been racing Ferraris and before that he drove the legendary Brumos Porsche 911. It should then be no surprise that he would be interested in something like a Rauh Welt Porsche. However, his father, McGrath Keen, was the first one to bring up the idea of owning a 911 Rauh Welt.

2015 Porsche 918 Spyder: 1st review
Kelley Blue Book
The all-new 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder is proof positive that one can have an out-of-body experience in a car. This limited-edition $849,000 supercar is not only a technological tour-de-force, but also the baddest plug-in hybrid on the planet. But what it is best at delivering are once-in-a-lifetime thrills in a car that flatters your driving skills. Someone asked Matt DeLorenzo what was the most awesome car he’s ever driven and he'd have to say the Ferrari F40 supercar. The Porsche 918 Spyder has now replaced that car, delivering even great thrills without the terror.

This 1975 Porsche 914 has a big motor and a $5,500 price tag
Jalopnik
The Porsche 914 was originally intended to supersede both Volkswagen's Karmann Ghia, and Porsche's own 912. Neither accession occurred, but you can still decide if the 914 in this article is worth replacing your hard-earned cash. As you have no doubt noticed, prices for air-cooled Porsches are climbing faster than tensions in the Middle East.

Digital Trends
“This 560-horsepower 911 Turbo S sure is nice, but I just wish it was a bit faster,” said no one ever. Porsche's boosted 911 is lauded by many for its bone-crushing acceleration, hardcore handling, and overwhelming drive experience, but German tuner Techart is taking it one step further.
