THE PRESIDENT’S COLUMN ROD HERSBERGER Porsche Design is a frequent depositor to my email inbox. Naturally, then, I took interest

in Christophorus 403 (page 39) recounting the 50th anniversary of the founding of Porsche Design by brothers Butzi and Peter. As well as describing the discipline that drives Porsche Design, there are pictures and stories of various Porsche Design objects on the pages following. Skip to page 58 for the story and pictures of a 911 Targa 4 GTS 50 Years Of Porsche Design Edition. It is a black beauty compared with a 1972 Targa. I expect these cars will only go to favored customers. Porsche Heritage (Panorama June 2022, page 58) is also building a limited edition of 1,250 911 Sport Classics as an homage to the 2.7 Carrera RS, complete with duck tail. Power is from the 992 Turbo at 543 hp and only a seven-speed manual. Serious collectors are going to be busy fighting over these two! The club always has great driving events. The July Two-Door Twisties drive organized by Angel Martinez,

however, offered a more spirited, challenging, and technical riff on the group driving experience. Several times on this 250-plus miles of long straights, tight curves, and roller coaster roads I was reminded of Sir Sterling Moss’ maxim: “Slow In, Fast Out.” It was that kind of drive. We hope to feature more of these because there seems to be already an enthusiastic audience for them. Coming up this autumn are a High Sierra tour, a very special visit to the Santa Paula Airport to view vintage planes, the detail clinic and concours, a wine country tour, and the always popular holiday brunch. Be sure to see the Upcoming Events in the magazine and on the club’s website. And, if anyone has an idea for a drive of any kind, contact activities co-chairs Art Shinn (artshinn@gmail. com) or Lionel Neff ( It might be time for another SUV-only excursion. The club’s membership and finances are in great shape. Thank you for your continued support. Stay healthy and drive safely.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK DENNIS POWER “It's all about the light,” photographers like to say.

And it’s all about the life that our SBR photographers bring to this magazine, we should say. The articles in Der Auspuff are well-written and informative, but it is the images that capture where we’ve traveled, who has done what, and in many cases where we’ve gathered around a meal together. The pictures truly bring life to the stories. Earlier this summer, President Rod suggested we acknowledge the photographers in our midst, those we can always count on to document our events. As your editor, it seems appropriate to do so in my column since I benefit greatly in putting the magazine together. All of

Randy Fishwick

Gary Krueger

those with cameras and commitment have a good eye for composition and the subject matter. Many are quite good at post processing the images to make them even better. Steve Geldman’s cover on this issue and Gary Krueger’s double column of Porsches on the cover and two-page Parting Shot spread at the Bixby Creek Bridge in the May/ June 2022 issue are superb. Bill Hallier is great behind the lens and in front of the computer as well. Nick Liakas and Randy Fishwick are always there when you need them, and Robert Watt loves to capture car events elsewhere, as seen on the cover of the November/December 2021 issue. Thank you, guys—we couldn’t do it without you.

Driving trips are the best when we are with Porsche friends and to locations where we learn something new.


DER AUSPUFF September/October 2022


n a sunny and warm June 25, 38 SBR members, traveling in 21 Porsches, caravanned from Santa Barbara to Nipomo, winding our way through the Santa Ynez Valley, wine country, and the agricultural fields of Santa Maria. The goal was the Dana Adobe & Cultural Center. The Adobe—or “Casa de Dana”—is on the National Register of Historic Places and was the home of Boston sea captain William Dana, who in 1837 was granted the nearly 38,000acre Rancho Nipomo. The entire Rancho is listed as a California Historical Landmark. Adjacent to the restored Adobe is the Cultural Center, a modern building completed in 2016 and consisting of exhibit space, a gift shop, a meeting room, and offices for the administration of the Adobe. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by three docents who helped us move picnic tables out of the warm sun to inside the Center. The docents then provided the educational experience and the tours of the adobe structures and surrounding features, such as the pollinator, kitchen, and Chumash gardens. We listened with great interest about the history of the Nipomo Ranch and the Dana generations of owners and stewards of the land.

Shop talk. On the road through wine country. September/October 2022


The Dana family made its presence felt in California for almost 200 years, and not just in the Nipomo area. One example is the connection between the Nipomo branch of the family with those at Dana Point in San Diego County. Part of that presence involved the experience of negotiating ownership rights with the Spanish owners, then the Mexican government, and finally with the California Republic when it seized control of the properties, claiming that the land grants were invalid—at least for a long while. We were happy to be able to visit this site and most grateful for the kindness of the docents and the historical information they provided. Driving trips are the best when we are with Porsche friends and to locations where we learn something new. By 3:00 p.m. the last of our members departed for home. It was a special day and experience for all. Nicolas Liakas is past editor of Der Auspuff. He’s been a member of PCA since 1994 and drives a 2020 992 C4S in Gentian Blue Metallic.

TWO-DOOR TWISTIES Story by Angel Martinez

“Before this drive, I really liked my car. But now . . . I love it!” “The route was sublime. The participants were a great bunch of Porsche hoodlums. Gimme more of these!” “It was all great! Really, couldn’t be better!” “The drive was delivered as advertised! Loved Highway 58!"


o there you have it. Just some of the superlatives expressed by club members who participated in the first Two-Door Twisties drive. I say “first” because the overall response was enthusiastic, to say the least. On a Wednesday morning last July, 28 Porsches gathered at Paddock Motor Club in Goleta, including 912s, long hood 911s, Boxsters, a GT4, Carreras, Caymans, and Turbos: in all, almost every variety of the most desirable of the Porsche sporting breed. A few ground rules were discussed, including the admonition to drive at your own


DER AUSPUFF September/October 2022

pace, and passing only when legal and safe. I could tell that there was a tiny bit of apprehension in some of the group, which was inherent to not really knowing what to expect. The drive was advertised as containing lots of twisty bits of all kinds, lots of ups and downs, and some hairpin turns. Adding to the consternation of some, I suspected that it may have been a while since some of the cars had been properly exercised, plus the fact that bathroom breaks would be few and services and cell phone reception would be limited.

Two Groups, one led by Henry Hinck and the other by Joe Schneider, got underway at 7:15, bound for a quick detour to my home in Ojai and a bathroom break. From there it was on to Highway 33, one of my favorite roads in our part of California. Keep in mind that this drive occurred on a Wednesday so there were very few cars on the road to interfere with our pace lines. After about 40 glorious miles we stopped for a group photo at a spectacular lookout point just before the turn onto Lockwood Valley Road. And that’s where the fun reached a new level. The drive on this road was spirited

and set the pace for the day. People found their own groups of four or five cars each and truly discovered what our cars were designed to do, and do so amazingly well. I found myself “whoop whooping” on many occasions and I wasn’t alone! The thrill ride continued on for about an hour, before the left turn at Mil Portrero Highway, leading up to yet another spectacular terrain change through Pine Mountain Club. Our third break found the group buzzing with energy. Someone said, “It can’t get any better than this!” Just wait, I said to myself.

September/October 2022


As we made our way down from Bitter Creek National Wildlife Refuge, taking in yet new and breathtaking views of the valley below in the Carrizo Plain National Monument, we gathered for another stop for fuel and a break in the town of Taft on Highway 33. Again, the variety of scenery and the many terrain changes are what made this such a special drive. Take this route in the fall and you’ll experience it in a completely different way. And in the winter, with the likelihood of snow in the mountain sections, you’ll discover the capabilities of your Macans and Cayennes. From Highway 33 we connected to the fabled Highway 58. I say "fabled" because, well, you had to be there. The 58 Top: The lineup at the beginning of Highway 58 and Right: Joe Schneider waits patiently. Both photos by Bill Hallier.


DER AUSPUFF September/October 2022

is a true driver’s road. One of the best in California. When we first entered the road we were stopped by construction, requiring a pilot truck to escort us in two groups through the fresh pavement being laid down. Come to find out in chatting with the flagman while we waited our turn that the pavement material being used is new and unique. It has a very high percentage of recycled rubber in the asphalt compound and it is the first time this material is being used in the state. Kern County, in cooperation with San Luis Obispo County, is paving the entire length of Highway 58 in this new compound.

What??!! Can you say “GRIP”? I must admit to getting teary-eyed. How could this road possibly get better? Well, we will all just have to wait to find out until the next version of the Two-Door Twisties. Needless to say, there is now demand among club members for this type of driving event. While there was no wine and cheese available, there was plenty of excellent German beer, sausages, and schnitzel at our destination: Beda’s Biergarten in San Luis Opispo. There was also that great feeling of having arrived, perhaps a little glassy eyed, at the end of a wonderful day of a driving adventure and of having experienced it all with a group of Porsche lovers, out for a mid-week jaunt, discovering maybe for the first time what these wonderful cars can do for their souls. Angel Martinez has been a member of PCA since 1999. He owns, restores, and drives a variety of air-cooled Porsches.

Cars & Coffee at Lavaggio By Dustin Troyan Photos by Steve Geldman


t was another beautiful Saturday morning at Lavaggio–The Art of Auto Detailing in Agoura Hills. Cars and Coffee was in full swing. The event was organized by Dustin Troyan, who is known to many of us in SBR and is a faithful advertiser in Der Auspuff. With space for about 45 cars, it was packed with enthusiasts. Coffee, donuts, and bagels were provided, as well as the Lavaggio team’s usual hospitality. It was a spectacular day for everyone. The event brought people together

who share their passion for automobiles. A wide variety of cars was on display, from hot rods and exotics to some of SBR members' Porsches. Many of the attendees have known each other for years. It was truly a wonderful way to spend a Saturday morning: cars, coffee, and friends—life is good!

DAS PORSCHE MUSEUM Story and photos by Matt Stone

Those who have the good fortune to turn their dream into a business owe it to the world to be the custodians of such dreams.

—Ferdinand Porsche


orsche’s fabulous museum sits in the heart of the company’s sprawling factory grounds. You won’t have to look hard to figure out that Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen is a major company town; the fact that the museum’s address is PorschePlatz 1 (Porsche Place 1) ought to tell you something. This breathtaking architectural wonder officially opened to the public in January 2009. The design credited Viennese architect Delugan Meissl and written descriptions barely do it justice. Photos help, but you


DER AUSPUFF September/October 2022

have to see it in person to grasp the sheer power of the design concept. The museum comprises acres of exhibit space, an immaculate workshop, vehicle storage, a truly world class steakhouse restaurant, the company archives, a comprehensive gift shop, and offices. There’s a full service Porsche dealer just across the driveway. A variety of Porsche factory office and assembly buildings surround the museum site. To stand at the museum’s forecourt, you’re truly in the heart of Porscheville.

Inside, the gallery spaces are airy, open, and dramatic. High-tech lighting is ideal for photos, and some spaces include windows to bring in outdoor light. As you might expect of an institution dedicated to the history of a company and family dating back some eight decades, the museum begins with introductions of the founders and major players in Porsche history, starting with the good doctor himself, Ing. h.c. Ferdinand Porsche (senior) who, as if knowing there would be a museum of such significant global importance, famously said “Those who have the good fortune to turn their dream into a business owe it to the world to be the custodians of such dreams.” You’ll see early design work from Herr Porsche’s original studios and early vehicles, including the Volkswagenbased Type 64, which introduced the world to rear-engined Porsche platform shapes and proportions that beget the original 356 and can still be seen in the most modern production 911 and Carrera models. The history of the first Porsche works in Gmünd Austria is also well and clearly told, as is the company’s move to set up shop in Stuttgart at the dawn of the 1950s. One black Porsche 356 coupe stands out and seems to draw more attention than nearly any other early car on display—it being the first Porsche produced at the new factories in Stuttgart. It’s a study in elegant simplicity, and is beautifully restored to resemble the day it was completed. Nicknamed “Ferdinand,” it was built in 1950. From then on, visitors follow a remarkable voyage that takes into account the company’s model lineup evolution, to include tractors (affectionately called Schleppers), military vehicles, and the genesis of the company’s efforts in motorsports, including everything from hillclimbs and rallies to Le Mans, IndyCar racing, and Formula 1. You’ll see the earliest 911s, 959 prototypes, Porsche-engined McLaren F1 machines, and a mouthwatering bevy of 917/956/962 endurance racers.

Opposite: The front of the Porsche Museum. This page: An array of the various exhibits of historic and iconic race cars.

Above: A typical, beautifully presented display. Left: The tastefully decorated fine dining eperience, Christophorus.

Besides the depth, breadth, and beauty of nearly everything you see, you’ll be impressed with how few of the cars are surrounded by ropes and stanchions. Naturally, no touching is allowed, but in many cases you’ll enjoy clean and unfettered looks at each exhibit and equally clear photo ops. The signage is informative without being over the top, and there’s a variety of hands-on learning experiences for the youngsters. Personally guided and virtually presented headset tours are also offered. You won’t starve here either, nor be short of shopping opportunities. The museum store has it all, from die-cast models and T-shirts to watches and books. The Coffeebar will help whet your appetite (and satisfy the need for one of those perfectly soft, fresh German pretzels). Boxenstopp means “pit stop” in German, a nice place to sit down for lunch, dining indoors or outside on the terrace at the front of

the property. Should you have an evening to invest in truly fine dining, get a table at Christophorus, where the specialty of the house is specially imported US prime beef: fabulous and truly a treat. With some time and planning, you can further round out your visit with a test drive in a new Porsche, and as you’d expect the property is immaculate and fully set up with sensitivity to any COVID concerns and accessible for those who may be mobility challenged.

SBR Donates to the Health Care Foundation for Ventura County In keeping with its practice to be a good member of the communities in which we live, this year the Santa Barbara Region of PCA selected the Health Care Foundation for Ventura County to receive a donation. Early in July, a check for $5,000 was delivered to the foundation. Established in 2014, the foundation is dedicated to strengthening the capacity of Ventura County Health Care Agency (HCA) to provide quality health care for all, especially at its hospitals, Ventura County Medical Center, and Santa Paula Hospital. The contribution was gratefully received.

HIGH SIERRA GRAND TOUR September 12-14, 2022

SBR has scheduled three days and two nights on one of California’s most scenic highways—U.S. Route 395. We’ll explore mountain passes on the eastern side of the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains. Highlights include Tioga, Monitor, Ebbetts, and Sonora passes, plus a visit to the Ironstone Winery in Murphys. The drive takes us through desert and alpine biomes, with Owens Valley and Mono Lake to the east and the steep slopes of the Sierras to the west. Lodging both nights is in the town of Bridgeport. We are limited to 20 vehicles, so don’t wait to sign up. Day 1. We meet in Castaic in time for an 8:00 a.m. departure. The route takes us on I-5, then east on highways 138 and 14 to U.S. 395 at the base of the Sierra Nevada range. After lunch in Bishop, we drive up Tioga Pass for the vistas before heading back down the mountain for dinner and lodging in Bridgeport. Day 2. Leaving Bridgeport, we head north to Monitor Pass and Ebbetts Pass, for tight curves, alpine lakes, and mountain vistas. We’ll arrive in the town of Murphys in the heart of gold country for lunch and a tour of Ironstone Vineyards. After the winery, it’s on to the panoramic drive over Sonora Pass before heading back to Bridgeport for the evening.

Day 3. Leaving Bridgeport on our last day, we head south a few miles to take a 16-mile loop around June Lake. It’s then back north to CA 120, east to U.S. 6, and down to Bishop and 395 to the town of Big Pine for lunch. From here it is back home. Cost. The activity fee for the High Sierra Grand Tour is $15 per person. Lodging and meals are to be paid for individually. You will also be responsible for booking your own room at the motel for which we’ve negotiated a rate of about $190 per night (king bed, double occupancy).
