Chesapeake Region

from our president President’s Message Greetings Everyone! “SO, all of this leaves us to wonder.....is it too early to start planning our Region’s group trip next year out to French Lick, Indiana for the 60th Parade??”

caravan route from Maryland to Indiana was a true Porsche adventure and an exquisite start to the week of Parade. Many thanks to both of them for a very memorable trip!

As I prepared this month’s message, Parade was ending and I’ve had a few moments to reflect on the events and activities in which we have had an opportunity to participate. Thus I ended my message for July of 2014, From the first moments of our arrival in and at the time, little did I realize that it French Lick, the impact of Chesapeake would actually come true.

Chesapeake Region

from our president A noted theme at Parade was “ Porsche Club of America - Fueled by Volunteers!” Such an initiative is as vital at a national level as it is here at home. We are extremely fortunate that Chesapeake has a wealth of talented and motivated individuals who manage our programs and organize our activities. However, there is always more to be done and an ever-growing need for additional participants in these efforts. This is an area where every member could be of great assistance. It’s your Region and it will always benefit from your active participation and leadership. For my own part, I truly appreciate each and every member who contributes to making our Region one of the liveliest and most active in PCA. I look forward to seeing everyone as we continue with our events through the year. And I’m left to wonder....why not start thinking about a caravan to next year’s Parade?

I’m always happy to hear from you at president@pcachs.org and look forward to seeing you on the road soon! Have fun and Drive Safely!

Project 944S: Part III - The Drive H

The Dri Project 944S: The Drive Home Article and Photos by Aaron Miller

W

elcome back to Project 944S. In our previous article we detailed the flurry of activity to restore our 944S, Red Sonja, back to safe driving condition and prepare for the 2500 mile trip from Tooele, UT to our home in Maryland. This time around I’ll detail our roadtrip to bring both car and owner home.

Day 1 What a day of exhilaration and frustration! Almost immediately after leaving the sleepy town of Tooele, UT for points east I got trapped by an accident on I-80. Talking with some locals later, apparently serious accidents there are unfortunately common. The silver lining was a chance to see how Red Sonja held up in crawling traffic. The answer? Not well! The cooling system on 944s are notoriously difficult to bleed completely, this one being no different. Fortunately traffic cleared up quickly and I found a spot off of the highway to let the what I thought was the last of the air out of the system. Back onto the interstate now and south onto Interstate 15. The miles quickly flew by and finally being able to explore our purchase a bit closer I was struck by the opacity of the window tint. It felt like driving inside of a cave! Unfortunately it didn't do much to spare the interior, which is suffering from a multitude of small cracks in every plastic surface. Small trade for a lack of rust I guess. From I-15, I exited to US-6 and a winding mountain drive for over 100 miles before I joined Interstate 70. Every time I stopped I got smiles and thumbs up from my fellow travelers, apparently a bright red Porsche is a crowd pleaser! My only negative interaction was at a fuel stop. As I was checking the oil and coolant levels a woman stopped to tell me her brother had an old Porsche and it constantly broke down. I told her I

ews, Red Sonja was happy to oblige

was confident in the mechanical state of my car and I received a shrug and "Oh, good luck then" in response. Crossing into Colorado from Utah proved uneventful but the coolant temperature continued to worry me. If I stayed at or below 65 mph the temperature maintained a steady state below 100C but accelerating to the posted 75 mph limit caused a slow creep in temperatures. I know more than a few of the looks I received were confusion about why this young guy was going so slow in his Porsche. Phone calls to fellow water coolers settled on the theory the thermostat was likely sticking closed. As I approached the Rocky Mountains my resolve to make it home cracked a bit. I realized I was going to severely tax the engine as we climbed in altitude. I decided to take it easy and only push Red Sonja as far as she was comfortable. It quickly became apparent my little car wasn't going to put up with much as we climbed above 8,000'. Approaching Vail Summit and 11,600', I was reduced to climbing the grades at speeds just above the tractor trailers doing the same thing. Thus far, my first exposure to a 16V 2.5L motor hadn't impressed with power delivery or free-revving like I had read. But the views!! Oh my yes, the scenery impressed beyond what I had imagined and made the decision to take I-70 totally worth it. I've never driven through the Rocky Mountains before but I know I want to go back. Snow-capped peaks overlooked an interstate clear of snow or salt and temperatures in the 70s. While Red Sonja struggled to keep climbing, I was awe-struck. Our slow pace just gave me more time than my fellow highway travelers to enjoy the sights. Finally we crested the mountains and began our descent. We were well into the afternoon and my planned US highway excursion through Breckenridge down to Fort Carson became untenable due to the time constraints and my concerns about putting Red Sonja through another mountain ascent. So we continued on I-70 before detouring around Denver and arriving at Fort Carson, CO for our 1 first stop of the trip. The decline in altitude and 2


Project 944S: Part III - The Drive H

The Dri temperature resulted in much better conditions for Red Sonja and she blissfully carried on at 80mph without complaint. A brief night in Army base lodging had me fueled up for the next leg of our trip.

Day 2

Blue skies and beautiful scenery

Kansas, oh Kansas. Why do people hate driving through you? I departed Fort Carson shortly after sunrise and was greeted with a beautiful sunrise. Unfortunately, that sunrise was pointed squarely in my face and no amount of sun visor or dark sunglasses was making a dent in the intense glare. I opted to take US-40E through the remainder of Colorado and a decent portion of Kansas before joining I70 again for my next evening stop. Over 250 miles and I think I only turned once! The gently undulating curves of the plains was a stark contrast to the previous days' journey through the mountains but it wasn't unwelcome. Red Sonja voiced her pleasure by not warming up above the normal operating temperature and responded with even more power on tap as we edged closer to sea level. Taking US-40E brought us through a number of small towns that helpfully informed us of our current altitude and provided the locals with something they clearly didn't see often. Long stares and double takes were the moves of the day and Red Sonja ate them up. Not bad for a ruddy little 944S! The local high school aged kids in their pickup trucks would fly up on us as we cruised along the highway before slowly passing. More than a few cell phones were snapping pictures too, I'd guess. As the day wore on, we continued our trek east and eventually caught up to I-70. Lunch conversation with one of the locals in western Kansas brought the conversation of, "How's the weather out there?" "Good, it's clear and sunny." "Is it windy?" "It is, got blown around a bit." "Well, that's Kansas for you." Having determined Kansas is typically 22 windy, we continued our journey with little fanfare.

Red Sonja plugged away and continued to demonstrate how efined her powerplant was. As an upgrade over the base 944 n 1987, it's lightyears more advanced in nearly every category. Now that we were at a more appropriate altitude, she had no problems rocketing up to highway speeds from our tops and freely revved up to her redline. The engine sound-

track is distinctly different from her 8V brethren, much more urgent and she sings as she comes on her cams. Porsche used less aggressive cams in the later S2 and 968 and I think it's a shame if for nothing other than the wonderful sound. The biggest surprise turned out to be the fuel economy, we averaged 33mpg over the two days! Compared to our 944 turbo and previous base 944, Red Sonja was proving to be a fuel miser.

Day 3 Crossing the halfway point started early, hopping on the road an hour before sunrise. As the sun slowly crested over the horizon we sped through metropolitan Topeka and continued east toward Kansas City. The remainder of Kansas and the entirety of Missouri were dispatched without fanfare. Unfortunately, the cooling system problem returned and the order of the day was managing engine temperature. The rolling hills of southern Illinois and Kentucky offered little opportunity to coast and by the end of the days' drive temperatures were creeping toward overheating. True to form, Red Sonja soldiered on realizing we were on the verge of ending our drive. Some quick phone calls and brainstorming led me to a local autoparts store and I was now the proud owner of a cooling system pressure tester. This tool is invaluable for the water coolers but it's always one I've borrowed from friends and swore I would buy some day. Once Red Sonja and I reached our stop for the night I let her cool down and checked the cooling system.

Great photo opportunity on Fort Riley, KS

Filed away to be taken care of immediately after reach home, I noticed a small spot of oil under the engine, front and center. A quick check revealed the crankshaft seal had apparently failed. Luckily, the oil pan gasket re-seal had held, so no need to pull the engine again. Otherwise, the day went by without note, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois and 23 Kentucky blurring together into one stream of farm-

After three days of intense auto repair and four days of marathon driving, we were finally home!! In the dark of early evening Minta came outside to finally survey our new purchase and Red Sonja met with an approving smile. Minta was giddy to look at her and we both marveled that both husband and car made it home without a scratch. If I had to do it all over again, would I? If you had asked me the day after our marathon drive, I would definitely have said no. But with a bit of time for reflection, the work we put in and the test of driving exposed a number of small issues needing attention. As the sun rose the next morning, I was filled with a feeling of accomplishment happy we had made it home and excited about the next chapter in Red Sonja’s life. land interrupted by the occasional city or town. The reactions from passers-by were positive, with multiple thumbsup and waves throughout.

Day 4

Tune in next month for the next installment of Project 944S, where we tackle some of the issues that popped up on our long drive and start to reverse the aging process. ***

Our final day on the road started out with an epiphany of how to cure the leaking hose and a test of the cooling system as we skirted around Nashville. We hit rush hour traffic and I watched the temps climb near 100C and stay there. I broke one of the main rules of road trips by scheduling the short days on the front side and I paid the price on our last leg home. I signed us up for what would be 14 hours of driving. The drive along Interstate 40 and onto Interstate 81 was beautiful as always, but I enjoyed it quite a bit more than Red Sonja. She continued to maintain a higher than normal temp and as the day wore on, heat soak started in earnest. We detoured onto Interstate 64 and on to the rolling

Porsche 911 G ROAD & TRACK

June 5, 2015

Porsche will build a stick-shift 911 GT

working on a new and powerful 911 derivative that will be fitted with a manual transmission—unlike the current GT3 and GT3 RS, which lost the stick shift, to widespread dismay.

Autocar speculates that the new model, which could be called 911 GT, will sport what is (somewhat comically) referred to as the "narrow body" of the base models. The speculation fits with our own intel and tidbits from interviews: Porsche r&d chief Wolfgang Hatz said in Detroit re the sports car gods in StuttgartZuffenhausen listening to our prayers? that the manual is a possibility for the GT3 RS; and Andreas Preuninger, who is responsible for the GT For years, Porsche has attempted to coax us into giving up manual shifters cars, has affirmed the company's commitment to the manual gearbox, an especially delicious component and accepting the advent of the automatic.

GT3 RS Review

GT and GT3 RS CARBUZZ

April 4, 2015

GT3 RS Review Chris Harris tests this outrageous beauty on road, track and Autobahn.

A

lot has already been said about the phenomenal Porsche 911 GT3 RS. From its 500 horsepower, 384 lb-ft of torque 4.0-liter naturally aspirated flatsix to the absolutely stunning looks of its wide body, massive wing and incredible scoops, the car is not only a performance monster but is also one of the finest looking 911s ever to be made. Of course, we would expect nothing less than an ability to gobble up highway and devour every tight corner on the track. But just to make sure, Chris Harris took the "delicious" GT3 RS out for a spin.

RACE/TRACK 993 $48,000 Many on Rennlist and in PCA know my 993 to be a very well developed and prepared car that is fast and forgiving. It is that rarest of racecars in that it has taken me to the podium quite a few times and, yet, it has never been wrecked. This car spent the first four years four or five years as a street car and then became a car that I drove 99% on the track. It is technically street legal since it's tagged and titled. I've actually been stopped/been given warnings by two police officers, and neither of them cited me for the loud exhaust, roll cage, etc. Lucky, I suppose. I have a lifetime emissions waiver from the state of Maryland, so it never needs to be smogged again. Contact: Mark Samuel at 410-375-6114 33 mark.samuel.lee@gmail.com
