Total Expenditure

$56,265 _______

Net income for the period

$9,112 _______

There has been a good positive cash inflow for the period with membership income strong from new members joining and the balance of 2014 fees. More fees will be received towards the end of the year when members renew for 2016. Advertising income from the Porsche West has reached over $8,800 which is a very good contribution to the costs of printing and distribution. The social events have been well attended and as usual the income covers the cost. We have paid a deposit of $2,500 for the Christmas party which is why there is a net expense at present. The club usually contributes towards the Christmas party so there will be a net cost at the end of the year. 4

president’s report

Well here we are again at the tail end of another fantastic year at the PCWA! At the time of writing this report we only yesterday had our last blast track day and we are all still buzzing about our best club meeting every a few days earlier (both at MC Motorsport). I guess if you throw our cars and a track into the mix you are always going to get some very happy members, yours truly included. While on this subject, some of the highlights of the year have certainly been our club meetings, almost all of them have been excellent well attended good humoured affairs (save for a particular meeting one would rather forget!) I would to thank David Blainey for allowing us to hold club and committee meetings at Wheels world, which is fast becoming our spiritual home. Also thanks to again to Rotorvation, Porsche Centre Perth, Andy Stack, AutoFX Myaree and MC Motorsport for hosting us for meetings during the year. Also a special mention to Porsche Centre Perth who are the most ardent supporters of the PCWA. With sponsorship of our Concours , 3 catered meetings per year, full page ad in this very publication and a yes to almost every request (except loaning the club a turbo S for a track day) they are certainly our greatest supporter! On the social front we have also been very active and I would like to personally thank the following members for hosting an event, The Irvine Family, Rick & Kirsty, Deryck and Grace, Gary & Mo, Barry, Chris and Glynis, Rudy, Andy, Chris and Tony. I would invite any members to consider hosting an event in 2016, please let our social directors know if you wish to do this, its heaps of fun and we are always on the lookout for new exciting events for the members! At this stage we still have our Club Concours and Christmas party Awards night to come however when you guys read this all will be revealed with regards to our sporting winners so I am happy to congratulate the following winners in our 2015 sporting series. Outright Champion went to Daniel Devries with Simon Line 2nd and Tim Wolfe 3rd. Club Champion also went to Daniel with

an unprecedented triple tie for 2nd place going to Tim Wolfe, Danial Bathe and Chris Westall and 3rd being Gary Jacobs! Daniel also won his Class of Open Pre with Simon Line 2nd and David Blainey 3rd. Class Open Post was won by John Paulich with Adrian Mosely 2nd and Allan Guelfi 3rd. In GT Class congrats to Tim Wolfe in 1st place and to Ian Smith and Adrian Buri for 2nd and 3rd place. Class A was a dead heat for 1st with nothing splitting Daniel Bathe and Gary Jacobs, 2nd goes to Luke O’Malley and 3rd going to Stuart Lister. Class B was won by the flying Chris Westall with Gerry Williams just pipped in 2nd place and Brad Bird taking out 3rd. Andy Tudor easily won class C followed by John Fowler and John Dumbill. No surprises for who took out Class D with the evergreen Micheal Broughton trouncing everyone to take out 1st place. Rookie of the year for 2016 is Adrian Buri and winner of the Spirit of the Series was Julie Irvine. The rising star award went to Michael Robbie and finally congratulations to Julie Irvine for also taking out our Inaugrial Ladies Plate. More pics etc on our sporting winners will be in our 1st issue of 2016 I must say that the 2015 Sporting series has been fantastic and I urge all of you to consider getting your wonderful Porsche on the track, it’s just TOO MUCH FUN not to! Thanks to Barry Nash for keeping it together and for Bill Richards for delivering the points tally with accuracy and above all speed! It’s nice to get those points on the website fast, the members like it too! This year will see significant movements on the PCWA committee, and I would like to thank the following long standing (leaving) members for their valued support and service to the club. My motto is “Even if you only do one small thing it’s still bigger than doing nothing at all!” So thanks to Graeme (show me the money) Robson who has been a most excellent treasurer, have fun in the Cayman S Islands Grobbo! Julie Jacobs who is the main reason for the increase in our membership, she is quite frankly the heart and soul of good management in this respect and has always gone way beyond her role for the good of the club. Roger (sausage king) Bernhardt a very experienced committee member. And last but not least Barry (the butterfly) Nash who has taken the PCWA Sports series to a very high level indeed. These guys have been on the committee for around 4 years and longer, they will be a great loss however I am happy to report we already have a nomination for Sporting director in Brett Read and Webmaster in Scott and Sharon Alexander.

president’s report continued Also in the interest of stability I have decided to renominate for another year as has David Blainey and Julie & Natasha Irvine. Thanks also to Rod Irvine for his support of Julie & Tash to be on our committee. While I am on the thankyou trail I would also like to thank Marco from Porsche Centre Perth who is one of the only people I know who actually reads the Presidents Report. Right now he is probably sitting in Paul’s office reading it out loud while Paul has one eye on his PC screen and the other on the forecourt. As 2015 draws to a close and we look to 2016 I would like to thank the members who attend events & meetings, who pay their dues on time and offer words of support instead of complaint. These are

the members (most of them actually) who understand the meaning of the word volunteer. Without the good hearted members of the PCWA this job would not be even close to rewarding as it is. So kudo’s to you guys for making 2015 one of the best years ever at the PCWA! I would like to wish all of you a Happy, Holy and Blessed Christmas 2015 and a Sideways, Tail Happy and Redline 2016! Thanks again and Go Porsche Cheers Edward Roose Club President.

secretary’s report I was one of the lucky PCWA members who did the Europe Tour during September. The tour include a guided tour of the Porsche rear and mid engine cars production line in StuttgartZuffenhausen. Amazing to be able to see and different to most production lines. Porsche’s production line does not produce batches of vehicles but produces vehicles by order. The production line has approximately 20 different 911 models, 5 different Boxster models and 5 different Cayman models all with different options

and specifications being produced on the production line in the order that the customers ordered them. This places additional complexity on the supply chain (which is “just on time”) to get the correct model’s equipment to each workstation on time. Additionally there are 30-40 different motor emission control specifications to suit different countries design rules. If you are in Stuttgart take time out to see the Porsche Museum with it’s new 911 Statue. The Mercedes Benz museum is also worth a look David Blainey

The new Porsche 911 Carrera –

evolution in design, revolution in technology The new Porsche 911 Carrera is extending its position as the best in its class in terms of performance and efficiency. Advanced development of the flat engines into turbocharged units has given the world’s best-selling sports car a boost in power along with significantly improved fuel economy. On its exterior, the 911 Carrera impresses with an evolutionary yet further sharpened design, while inside it features the new Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system for the first time with improved connectivity and real-time traffic information. Drive system Three-litre six-cylinder with bi-turbo charging, 370 hp (272 kW) of power in the 911 Carrera and 420 hp (309 kW) in the 911 Carrera S. In both models, that is 20 hp more than previously. The cars also offer a full measure of torque at 450 and 500 Nm, respectively. It is available from 1,700 rpm, and the engines have a usable speed range of up to 7,500 rpm. These are the characteristic data of exceptionally free-revving sports car engines.

Performance New record sprint times: the 911 Carrera Coupé with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) and the Sport Chrono Package has a zero to 100 km/h sprint time of 4.2 seconds (now 0.2 sec faster), and the S-model 3.9 seconds (0.2 sec faster). This is the first 911 Carrera to break the four-second barrier. Efficiency Fuel consumption per 100 km is just around twelve per cent lower because of Porsche turbocharging technology. The 911 Carrera with PDK transmission now consumes just 7.4 litres of fuel per 100 km (0.8 litre less), while the S-model with PDK consumes 7.7 l/100 km (1.0 litre less). Chassis Ride height has been lowered ten millimetres, the further developed active PASM chassis is standard and rear-axle steering is an option in the Carrera S. The new 911 Carrera significantly extends the spread between sportiness and comfort once again. The new Automatic Post-Collision Braking System is standard.

Aerodynamics The aerodynamics of the 911 improve efficiency and driving dynamics by virtue of new automatic cooling air flaps. Air drag and aerodynamic lift are reduced in interplay with the variable rear spoiler. Infotainment The new Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system with its state-of-the-art touchscreen is as easy to operate as a smartphone and offers new Porsche Car Connect features. They include traffic information in real time, Google Earth and Google Street View. The system can be readily networked with a smartphone, thus providing access to many more apps.

2105 Sports Year that Was Goodbye from Barry the Butterfly!

No hiding in that Barry! Well it has been over three years since I had the call from fellow club member and friend Gary Jacobs suggesting that I might consider being PCWA Sporting Director. I would like to say that Gary’s enthusiasm for motorsport and his sportsmanship & driving skills are second to none. After some consideration I decided to accept the offer of becoming Sporting Director and there began one of life’s great experiences. The Porsche marque has been involved in motor sport since inception, so as a Porsche approved Car Club I fully understood that we needed to have a successful sports series. After some small hiccups in the beginning we finally got moving with the help and support of a new and exciting PCWA committee. Yes, we made some tough, and at times unpopular decisions, but having made these changes, we have not looked back. I am proud to report that on leaving

Sporting Director a Lonely Job 12

PORSCHE

WEST

this role the PCWA Sports Series is the best it’s ever been with a regular turnout of 40 competitors and cars to all events. As I vacate the position at the end of 2015 I feel confident the sport series is in a good position to continue to grow. While nominations are still open, I am sure that Brett Read will equip himself well in the new role, with the support of the committee, and most importantly, the sporting competitors. I will also be available to assist the new management and to perform official duties at the PCWA run events but naturally I will not stand in the way of future growth or changes, because without changes, improvements cannot be made. Personally I would like to thank the entire PCWA committee for their help and support throughout my time as sporting director.

Laying down the law

Special mention must go to Edward Roose, Julie Jacobs and Bill Richards. I would also like to congratulate the PCWA committee on record membership, the successful launch of the magazine, a healthy financial position and a fantastic sporting series. And finally I would also like wholeheartedly thank the competitors of the sports series, you guys drive well, compete well (sometimes complain well) and are a credit to the PCWA! The future looks bright for the PCWA so make sure you get out on the track and hit that redline with the PCWA Sporting Series. Thanks again to all and see you out there! Barry Nash PCWA Sporting director 2012-2015


Clear protective vinyl wrap cleaning If you have installed or about to have clear wrap installed to your car’s paintwork then you probably already know that the clear wrap both gloss and matte will prevent stone chips and washing scratches from effecting the paint. Most of us also assume that the vinyl is self cleaning? Well I can tell you that the natural property of the surface of the vinyl is no different from paint and left un treated from waxes, sealants, and other forms of self cleaning or hydrophobic products on the market. Like waxes, sealants & other surface coatings they need to be applied to paint not only to protect the paint from the harsh elements but makes cleaning sooooo much easier and that is what we all want, less time cleaning and

drying and more time enjoying the car! By applying strong waxes and sealants or permanent glass coatings to both paint and vinyl we could achieve the ultimate goal of a self cleaning surface. The other small benefit is the fact that like all materials in this oxidizing world, things deteriorate due to the oxidation of our atmosphere and more importantly is the deterioration of the sunlight. With the expense of vinyl wrapping and even worse is the cost of removal and reinstallation leaves me think that it is only common sense to prolong the optimal life of the clear vinyl wrap by means of waxes, sealants or glass coatings.

will only add positives by way of aid in your cleaning ease and reduction of cleaning time or efforts required as well as increase the optimal life of your expensive clear wrap. Desmond Wong Auto FX Myaree

Conclusion is by applying waxes, sealants and glass coatings to your vinyl wrapped car

220km/h - 70m Visibility and Still Smiling PCWA Members Visit Spa

Play time in the water. Sabine, a 997 GT3 RS Gen 2, just before the sling through Eau Rouge dip. Twenty years ago as I was lapping Barbagallos and seeing the same corner every 70 seconds I thought this was the only race track “in the world”. Wow the world has opened up a lot in that time! On the recent PCWA European Driving Tour 2015 many of us experienced something truly religious – we got to drive on the famous Circuit de Spa- Francorchamps, located in the Ardennes forests next to the picture perfect little town of Malmedy. Voted by the top Formula 1 drivers as their favourite track, the Spa Circuit is famous not just for the fact that is 7.04km of incredible straits and hill climbs, or that it winds through amazing forest but for a dip named Eau Rouge.

day’s motorsport. Each of the intrepid drivers got between 30 minutes to an hour’s training by a professional race driver before being let loose on the track for 270km of track time. Apart from Eau Rouge, the moment that is still etched into my being is doing 220km/h down Kemmel Straight in torrential rain with only 70 metres of visibility, just seeing the brake lights of the cars in front and only knowing the Les Combes corner was coming because of some count down signs on the side of the road. 150, 100, 50 metres – here we go again….. If you ever want to do this yourself, you can visit RSRNurburg.com and tell them you are from PCWA or contact

Ray Shepherdson on ray@rsrnurburg. com. They will look after you. Enjoy! Thanks to all who attended for a lifetime of memories! Cheers Deryck President’s Note: Thanks very much to Deryck & Grace for hosting this stellar event. Every single PCWA member who attended could only rave about this wonderful trip into the car lovers paradise that is Europe. Thanks also for the excellent presentation at our November club meeting! So on to the next one then!

Sitting at the end of a long descending straight skirted by pavilions, it is like being shot down a Luke Skywalker-like cavern to then be slung out of this amazing positive G-loaded corner that propels you up the hill to one of the fastest straights in the Formula 1 circuit. Are you getting this? When done right, it is the most amazing high – both thrilling and nurturing at the same time. When not done right, it is a negative camber nightmare! The intrepid PCWA team members – Andy Stack, Allan Guelfi, Kirsty Garmonsway, Rick Smith, David Blainey, Michael Broughton, Barry Elmslie and Rodger Greville – chose a wonderfully wet day to race their Renault Sport Meganes along with me in Sabine but still there were incredible smiles all around. The team at RSR were at their best – organized, professional, informative and most importantly genuinely passionate and supportive of the 14

It took some time in coming; but at last the Alicia Run was up and running on Sunday, the 11th of October 2015. Thankfully it was a cooler – and more pleasant – day which made the drive more tolerable; and the first to arrive at the Centerpoint car park was Chris and Lorraine Clarke, followed just minutes later by Tony and I. The others arrived in quick succession; and by 0945, we were ready to roll after the usual navigators’ briefing. A new and longer route was planned which included a very welcomed pit stop at the mid-way point. This new route included a “roller coaster ride” (Lancewood Road) before joining [the twisty] O’Brien Road and relatively straighter Berry Road back on to the Toodyay Road. On arrival at Toodyay, the convoy stopped at a quiet car park just outside the town for our planned 10 minute pit stop – and a chance to stretch one’s legs before embarking on Part 2 and (arguably) the fastest part of the run. Leading the guys out of the car park was Rick Smith/Kirsty Garmonsway and closely followed by Lothar and Belle Losch. This new route took the convoy towards Bolgart on the Bindi-Bindi Road for about 11.6 km before they turned into Dewars Pool Road: a surprisingly fast stretch of nearly 34 km of empty country road – perfect for Porsches! Through the town [of Bindoon] they went and more twisty sections were to follow when they left the Great Norther Hwy, en route to the final destination. And finally, it was from a different direction that they approached Alicia’s: A (slightly) longer run, followed by the usual terrific lunch laid on by those most gracious of hosts, Alicia and Jacob. (Thank you again for your hospitality!) What an enjoyable way to go out for a Sunday lunch!

Time for a chat about THAT road. 18

If you were ever looking for a pub or an inn in the middle of nowhere, literally, then the Greenhills Inn would be it. Once a thriving and vibrant rural community in Western Australia’s wheat belt region, Greenhills is now a quiet little town nestled amongst ancient gum trees, awaiting visitors to come by, tarry a while and perhaps discover a bit of its fascinating place in history. So on a lovely Sunday morning in August 2015, Deryck and Grace took over 60 enthusiastic members of the Porsche Club on a drive in search of that little town that time forgot. Taking picturesque back roads less travelled through Mt Observation and Talbot, 30 Porsches arrived at Greenhills. We congregated in the heart of town – which was the local pub, of course!

The Greenhills Inn and Pub today stands as one of the most prominent buildings in the town. Built in 1910, it is a charming two storey Federation styled building that’s now owned by Apryl and Rodney. We were greeted warmly by the couple who welcomed the Club. Over pre-lunch drinks, they regaled us with a brief history of the town and also ghost tales of characters from a bygone era that once lived in Greenhills yet now still lingers in every fresh retelling of local folklore.

longer had the significance it once did and the population ebbed dramatically over time.

Greenhills was once a robust little farming and agricultural township that stood proud between York and Quairading, complete with its own train station, post office and numerous amenities. However, the York-Quairading bypass subsequently sucked life away from the township. The eventual abandoning of the railway altogether meant Greenhills no

And if you’re a car enthusiast or petrol head, there are also fantastic roads leading into the town that scream out “motorkhana heaven”! Greenhills may once have been a ploughman’s paradise, it could well be a driver’s dream in the near future. Shhh. Don’t tell anyone just yet, but do watch this space!

The Greenhills of today, however, has taken on new life while still honouring memories of the past. It is a beautiful, serene spot where visitors can have a brief sojourn from the crazy bustle of city life, or a rest for a little longer if one wished. The Porsche Club enjoyed country hospitality at its best. It was a lovely day and we even had two new members sign up!

Porsche Parade to Avon Valley It was a lovely spring day as excited members converged on our usual morning meeting place for most runs north of Perth (Ginger’s roadhouse). The group of cars varied from some fine rear engine coupe and cabriolets both air and water cooled and some excellent mid engine finery including one very new pukka white Boxster GTS.

pretty much traffic free with excellent visibility and wonderful scenery especially when on the Tooday/Clackline road and the Spencers Brook road! Apart from a T junction that was not on google maps (when yours truly mapped out this run), the drive from Toodyay more than made up for the earlier “peak hour” traffic we encountered.

One thing we have learned from this event is that Chittering Valley road (and Julimar Rd) is almost becoming no-go zones for any club Sunday drive due to the very high amount of traffic on these roads.

I must say that I was a little disappointed in the lunch. This was organised weeks in advance and a phone call made a few days before informing management of our arrival time (and again when we arrived to the one bar person on duty). But we all waited for some time after we arrived for the food to make an appearance. The good news was that members were not hungry afterwards and the nice surroundings of the Spencers Brook tavern made up for that tardiness and lack of bar staff. While it’s a nice little venue to visit in a small group I would not recommend it for a larger group event.

The first half of our run was a little frustrating with large groups of Motorbikes travelling at below the legal limit and taking up the entire road, which makes for a very difficult proposition when attempting an overtake. The game changed however after we reached Toodyay the rest of the run was

After lunch some members headed to York for coffee etc and I can assure you one of the best driving roads was found after our lunch, being the Spencers Brook/York Rd. This little piece of tarmac is kind of a “back way” into York which shadows the railway line for around 25k’s and it’s just brilliant! Rolling hills on both sides, virtually no traffic in either direction, nuff said I am sure you get the picture! Thanks to all who attended ,and sorry again about the slightly disappointing lunch.Hope to see you all out there again at our next PCWA social drive. May all your sixes be flat! Edward Roose

Race From Perth via Uluru to Sydney to Stop Cancer in a 944S

Andy & Edward say goodbye to Chris & Dave before their epic journey

944S Halfway there

PORSCHE

Middle of knowhere! This race is an amalgam of many things, all of them enduring passions. Family, friends, Porsche, motorsport, the great Aussie road trip and a desire to do something to help stop cancer in its tracks, that pretty much sums up the cooking lesson for the Race to Stop Cancer. The rules are simple, a Porsche aims to complete a distance in a set time before a fundraising team, represented by a blue 911 matchbox car, raises the equivalent of $1 per kilometer. Our chosen charity this year is Cure Cancer Australia. This years’ Race to Uluru was twice the distance and time of last years’ Race Across The Nullabor. We were aiming to complete an epic 8570klm in 10 days. This years’ race also had even more personal significance, with another member of my immediate family being diagnosed with the disease a week after David and I purchased our car. David had a close work colleague undergoing treatment for the disease. These events just made us even more determined to complete the race. The fundraising team, had hit the road on September 4th with a $53 donation. By the time we arrived in Perth, they were already holding onto a commanding lead of 1726klm (translating that into race credits, they had raised $1726). This put them 40klm shy of Port Hedland, a head start of more than 2 days. Finally the day had arrived for us to join the race. Andy Stack from Rennsport, our real, and at times virtual mechanic, had meticulously prepared our 1990 944S2 for the race. Proudly displaying our Race to Stop Cancer livery, we fired up the big 3 litre 4 cylinder and headed North in pursuit of the fundraising team. As we pulled onto the freeway, we were excited to finally be underway, until a routine change from 3rd to 4th found the clutch pedal stuck firmly to the floor. No road service van for us, Andy showed up in his white 928S and got us back on the road within an hour. Only 8556klm to go! As we left the Perth metro area, the 944 was beginning to stretch its legs slicing along the straights and carving through the bends of the Indian Ocean Drive. We stopped to check out the Pinnacles and just before dusk managed to find accommodation at Jurien Bay. The evenings are always interesting. Our accommodations ranged from shoebox sized dongas to historic pubs with sprawling rooms and freeway sized verandah with great food and a welcome cold beer. Driving into town in a Porsche with ‘Stop Cancer’ signs splattered all over it tends to be a good ice breaker. Many can’t believe what you are driving and

you can tell that your very presence has just shattered any stereotype they may have about what a Porsche or a Porsche driver is all about. There is always a car enthusiast on hand who has a Porsche story and in many cases, admiration for the brand and the beauty of its styling. Yes that’s right, even 944’s get the nod of approval in the outback! After the mechanical delay on Day 1, we climbed behind the wheel intent on reeling in the fundraisers, who by now had opened up their lead to 2468klm ($2468), thanks to a very generous and race changing donation of $424 from our good friends at Porsche Club W.A. This put the fundraisers at the equivalent of 110klm the other side of Broome. By now, very well acquainted with the cockpit of the 944 and its various idiosyncrasies, we were both impressed with the amount of torque available from very low rpm, something that was consistent with our old ’78 911SC and my previous ’86 3.2 Carrera. We also found plenty of willing and able horses on tap when needed. By dropping a gear and pushing above 4000 rpm, we effortlessly slipped past 4 trailer long ore trucks like they were standing still. Handling was absolutely fantastic, with the 944 and its legendary balance inspiring confidence with every bend. Ride quality was superb, helped by the fabulous WA road quality, something we can only dream of in NSW. Most mornings we made an early start today to try and rein in the fundraisers who had now past the Mueller Ranges at 2945klm. The mornings were also refreshingly cool, something that seemed to be to our 944’s liking. Morning drive shifts are great, little traffic, cooler temperatures, a good coffee and its off for another day in the 944 office, a very comfortable place to spend the day. Driving North, the daytime temperatures started to climb into the mid 30’s to the low 40’s, a real test of our 944 and its rebuilt AC. We also moved away from the coast traversing the Pilbara and the Kimberley. The terrain became far more arid and dramatic. Red earth and blue sky spread out as far as the eye could see. In these areas you feel the scale of the landscape and are very aware of your relative insignificance. The opportunity to be in this landscape, to pass through it, to sprint from one endless horizon to the next, in the lap of a car that is just as much at home cruising along the temperate autobahns of Germany as it is crossing the eye watering expanses and extremes of outback Australia is what this race is about. As we changed drivers, we often adjusted our target end point for the day which occasionally found us in locations with little more than a roadhouse for accommodation.

Blasting through the cool morning air on the way to Broome for a coffee stop, a tidy morning run of 490klm, we headed out to have a look at Cable Beach. By comparison to the deep red soil of the surrounding Kimberley, you are greeted by shimmering white sand and an aqua sea. Explanations and photographs aside, you just have to experience it. By the time we left, the temperature had climbed to 43 degrees driven by a stiff breeze. It felt like bush fire weather. Driving inland we began to see the oldest living beings in Australia, Boab trees. Some of these trees are more than 1500 years old. Out here they are everywhere. Their presence changes the look of the landscape, giving it an almost fertile appearance. During the long hot afternoon drives we passed through some areas of fire, many dry creeks and river crossings, reinforcing just how dry the dry season is. At Fitzroy Crossing we took some time to do a little bush walking along the multicoloured limestone cliffs of Geikie Gorge, part of a 350million year old Devonian reef system. The area holds great significance in indigenous Australian culture and with more than 50 distinct Aboriginal tribal communities represented in the area. We awoke to find the fundraisers had slowed their pace and were only 238klm ahead of us, a distance we knew we’d have done by coffee time. The mornings drive was filled with dramatic red rock ridges, anthills, Boabs and long sweeping bends. The road took us through the Ord River and the Bungle Bungle Ranges region. Today we also had our own little race inside the cabin of our 944. This race required us to consume around 1kg of fruit that we had onboard before reaching the NT border. Good thing we both like grapes and mandarins! The first thing we noticed crossing the Territory line was a deterioration of the Victoria Highway road surface. The stunning Kimberley rock formations however made up for the slight discomfort. The backdrop of the Victoria River is a true highlight of this part of the country. We managed to find The Victoria River Roadhouse, in hindsight, the best value, most picturesque location we stayed in. But don’t expect to make any contact with the outside world. There is absolutely no telco service here. Next day, we headed to Katherine Gorge for our scheduled rest day. I won’t bore you with the details here, other than to say, everything you’ve seen or read is true, it is a must see destination. Issue 3 - 2015

The next thing to work in our favour was the big right turn we made from the Victoria Highway onto the Stuart Highway. This road is best known for its areas with no speed limit, which we used to our advantage. The 944 was now truly in its element. Comfortable cruising speeds ranged from a leisurely 140klm through to 230klm in a few places. We were loving the car, no overheating, icy cold AC and the closest thing to legally driving at autobahn speeds available in this country. Bliss! This was the day we would reach the centre point of the Race, Uluru. It was also the day that we woke to find the fundraising team had made up a lot of ground during the night and had covered a total distance of 4601klm, compared to our 4908klm. The race was still very much alive. We headed straight out to get up close and personal with the biggest rock on the continent. We were treated to an epic display of changing colours against the encroaching night sky that would leave anyone speechless. Later at the dinner table, most of the travelers we spoke to could not believe what we were doing. One young couple from Newcastle made a very generous donation to our charity which kept the fundraising moving forward. When we set out today, neither of us expected it to be over 1300klm. At our first fuel stop at Erldunda we knew we were in good company with the sighting of a beautifully restored Karman Ghia, travelling with an FJ Holden and a VC Valiant. They were getting ready to leave and I struck up a conversation with Squizzy Taylor, the owner of the Karman. Squizzy and his wife were on their way from Port Augusta to Alice Springs. Shortly after crossing into SA, we managed to stop and rescue a Thorny Devil. They are easy to distinguish from any other lizard at speed, as they have a particular, statue like stance. The country for much of this part of the drive is truly desolate. The salt lakes and the sky are often the

heroes of this landscape. Despite this, Emus are quite a common sight on these plains. We stopped in Wilmington SA for the night, a beautiful little town in the Flinders Ranges. We awoke to clouds, cool weather and some showers, a complete contrast from our previous week of deserts and 40+ temperatures. Following the train line through the Flinders Ranges you begin to understand how important rail infrastructure is as a means of transport in our vast interior. Crossing back into NSW from SA, we were once again disappointed by the quality of the roads. The 944 handled it all in its stride with a sure footed ride. We arrived in Broken Hill and visited the mining memorial site which is placed atop one of the biggest mining spoil piles you are likely to ever see on the edge of a city. Another huge day had seen us clock over the 8000klm mark. The fundraisers were still racing along and had reached 5065klm. Now with the Hunter Valley ahead, it felt like the home stretch would be an easy drive. Glorious hills, rolling green fields and sweeping corners, albeit very bumpy in places, were on the menu for the morning. Finally arriving to a great beach day at Nobbys carpark, where we were greeted by a Newcastle Herald team to interview us about the trip. An extra treat was seeing my wife Karen and my Mum there to greet us. After the interview we wanted to show Dad the car, being that in many ways, he was the original inspiration for us to base these fundraising adventures upon Porsche thanks to his 356B and 5 year membership with PCNSW from 1961. We stopped outside Dad’s house and showed him around the car. We then got back in the car, to make the short drive to the official finish line under Sydney Harbour Bridge. But not today! The car cranked, but

showed no sign of starting. Who would believe it! After our mechanical leaving Perth over 8000klm ago, this magnificent 25 year old car had safely carried us through the great Australian outback, through days of sweltering heat, effortlessly, flawlessly, at speed and in a level of comfort that many modern cars would struggle to match. Who could imagine that she would decide that was enough. The Race Continues As I write, the 2015 Porsche Muster - the Race to Uluru to Stop Cancer, is still not won by either team. The fundraising is still open and the little legend of a white 944S2 is still in the pits at Autowerks on the NSW Central Coast, around 100klm short of the finish line. With that in mind, the Race to Stop Cancer is one that we are all involved in. It is a race that we hope to one day complete for good. Until then, we encourage you to join in the race to stop cancer by joining the fundraising team and make it a win for the Fundraisers and researchers alike, who spend their days in an enduring search for a cure for this disease that affects ever more people each day. We would like to take this opportunity to thank those fundraisers who have participated so far and also to our families and friends, especially our dear friends at PCWA for their belief and support before, during and after the race. We would also ike to thank our sponsors Warren and Brown, Vivanco and Tex Solutions, without whose help the race would not have been possible. We are already planning next years Porsche Muster and hope to see a number of Porsche drivers in the 2016 Race to Stop Cancer.

The Politics of Speeding Fines

One type of fixed camera

People in Perth often complain about speeding fines being too high and accusing the State Government of revenue generation. The State Minister of Speeding Fines says stop complaining and is quite clear that her fines are not about revenue earning but about the noble act of saving lives. Well, I guess we could just take her word for it. Or perhaps we will do a bit of our own investigation and see how that shows up in the statistics. As some of you may know, I drive across Europe every year in Sabine – my beloved Porsche 997 GT3 RS. Each year I tend to do approximately 3,500 km through at least three to five countries. That mileage includes lots of country driving and lots of city visits including London, Paris, Munich, Milan, Amsterdam and others. Here’s the thing: each trip I tend to see on average one to two multinovas (very rare), six to eight fixed cameras (often with ample warnings signs before each camera) and one or two law enforcement officers holding a laser gun. That is eight to 11 speeding devices every 3,500km through at least two cities and countless towns and hamlets. In 20,000km, I have been photographed only once by a fixed camera – but more on that later. Now if I was to circumnavigate Perth via Stirling Highway, Leach Highway and say the freeway on a short trip of 45km, I am likely to come across three multinovas and four fixed speed cameras. That’s just one less than the 3,500km worth of driving across Europe. We have 38 fixed cameras in Perth metropolitan areas alone and much more coming soon. Apparently it is all for our safety. What if this is about revenue-raising instead? So let’s have a look at what we are charged in safety conscious Perth verses the other European countries I have driven through.

Table 2 Death Rates/100,000 vehicles pa 4.3/100,000 France 4.9/100,000 Australia 5.6/100,000

Of the countries compared, we performed worst and looking at most developed countries we are in the upper section. Admittedly, I was once caught for speeding. That’s in all of my 20,000km driving in Europe in a car capable of 323km/h (where I also once touched 311km/h) and would have travelled over 1,000km at more than 200km/h. Leaving Bad Mergentheim, a picturesque little town in Bavaria, I got a little excited seeing a stretch of road winding off through perfect green fields and accelerated too early. “Flash” went the camera and this was the result: Insert Image Yes, my naughty girlfriend Grace was photographed doing 11km/h over the speed limit and was fined a grand total of €25. You’d notice that Grace does not have a steering wheel right! Well Sabine is a right hand drive car in a left hand drive world. So according to this picture that wasn’t me getting fined but my speed-loving partner. We are still negotiating about who should pay this bill! PS: We do not endorse reckless speeding. However, if you would like to do 111km/h or more – go to Europe!

Insert Table 1 * If paid in 14 days or charged on the spot. Please note it is very hard to compare all European countries as each country has its own parameters, driving standards, average vehicle flow and overall transport infrastructure. Detailed data can be found on www. speedingeurope.com and www.transport.wa.gov.au With a few famous exceptions like Switzerland and the Netherlands, Australia has some of the highest speeding fines I could find. What also needs to be considered is just how often these fines are enforced. I think with our 38 fixed cameras and many more coming for our safety, we are likely to win this title too. 32

We normally don’t mention our club meetings in any edition of Porsche West unless they are a little special, and this one was very special. Members arrived at the small workshop of AutoFx Myaree to find the work area clean and fully setup for our meeting. An added bonus was the display of Edward’s brand new Metallic White Boxster GTS which had just been detailed by Des and the boys from AutoFx. The reason for this was not only because it’s an awesome looking car but also to showcase the products and services AutoFX offer including detailing of wrapped cars. As this GTS only has the front section wrapped it gave a good example of how good a vehicle can look if correctly cleaned and

proper products applied (which these guys sell and offer). So if you have a wrapped car you also need to look after it and AutoFX can help with right advice and products to help. Members enjoyed a very nice BBQ dinner and some drinkies (which ran out, note to committee, buy more beer for club meetings!) before we all sat down for an excellent light hearted meeting. In fact apart from one particular meeting this year I am sure you all agree that club meetings are just too much fun most of the time, given that the committee has taken the stance that a short meeting is a good meeting!

Later in the evening Edward & Gary (boys will be boys) decided to offer the members come extreme Exhaust note fun by revving their PSE equipped cars inside the workshop. So on an evening in October a Cayman GT4 and a Boxster GTS revved their sports exhausts wantonly. It was loud and a huge giggle! We at the PCWA like to think that we are all 12 year olds and like to act that way. Adults need to apply haha! Thanks to all who attended and to AutoFX for offering their venue, we will be back in 2016! PCWA Committee.

Well just when you thought we had our best meeting ever the PCWA committee out did itself again with easily the best club meeting ever held by any organisation at any time in living history! How can we not have enjoyed a balmy evening at the track with our cars! Jurgen from MC Motorsport kindly offered his venue for our November meeting and threw open the full track and skid pan for us to enjoy

Adrian & his hot Cayman R

For once members actually payed attention to the info listed on the website and started to arrive at the earlier time of 4.30 for some much needed redline therapy PCWA style. By 5pm everyone was enjoying their Porsche cars as the sun was setting and boy oh boy did we have some fun.. Let’s face it, we are all 12 years old and love to play with our toys, so watch this space for MORE club meeting where our cars feature in some manner. Some notable memories of this stellar evening were a certain white 997.2 PDK equipped Turbo making lots of smoke on the skid pan while trying in vain to do some donuts, then understeering (under power) off and into the grass! Also Brett Williams caning his Cayman S and making more smoke on the skidpan as he drifted around with a massive grin showing his pearly white teeth! The first drive on a track of Gary & Julie’s stunning new GT4 and the wanton use of Launch Control by yours truly in my new Boxster GTS. Did I tell you that I love Launch Control…just sayin!

All smiles from Ian after a fang!

Later in the evening one lucky member won some hot laps in the MC V8 Supercar, with new member Joe’s mother winning! Honestly I was a little worried ae as I know Jurgen likes to get it sideways but Judy was excited to get in and even more excited when she got out! Thanks goes to Julie, Rod & Natasha for organising our dinner later and to David for organising the drinks! Also a massive thanks to Jurgen & the MC Cayenne GTS guys for allowing us to act shoe size all night on the track, and also later in the meeting which was more like a comedy routine than a club meeting. Later Deryck Graham regaled us all with a great presentation of the recent trip (which he and Grace hosted) to Europe involving a nice band of PCWA members, more on that story soon! So thanks for all who attended, certainly the best club meeting of the year!

A tale of two Museums

Tim Wolfe GT3

Stuttgart has two great car museums and a group of PCWA members visited them in September of this year. The Mercedes and Porsche museums are, in my opinion, “must see” attractions should you find yourself anywhere near southern Germany. The earliest history of the combustion engine is your first encounter at the Mercedes Museum (Picture 1). The museum is arranged in chronological order whereby you are transported back in time as you start your spiral trek through the museum from top to bottom. Actually the ramps down the Mercedes Museum are a double helix: a design intention to imitate the structure of DNA.

which are on display just a few kilometres away at the Porsche Museum (Picture 4). Perhaps it is no coincidence that ‘’sharklike” ventilation grills, “whale tails”, “gull wings” and such like design cues from the natural world inevitably find themselves in museums: our own DNA is in part shaped by paying close attention to fast and sleek objects moving around near us! As they say: respect your environment. An early exhibit at the Porsche Museum is an in-wheel design for an electric motor designed by Ferdinand at the turn of last century (Picture 5).

From just 0.75 horsepower in 1886 to 35 in 1900, Mercedes had produced a 100 horsepower vehicle by 1914. The two hundred horsepower milestone was in a production car by 1930 (Picture 2) with a supercharged 7.1 litre 6 cylinder engine in the Mercedes Super Sport. The evolution of the combustion engine is remarkable and the role it has played in shaping the world we live in today is tremendous.

Whilst Ferdinand Porsche was involved in the production of the very first hybrid-powered automobile in 1901 the company that bears his name today is revisiting this ‘DNA’ with hybrid technology on both the racetrack (1st & 2nd at Le Mans 2015 in the Porsche 919 Hybrid) and for the road in the 918 Spyder – able to lap the Nurburgring Nordschleife in 6m57sec – the actual vehicle responsible being on display at the Museum this September (Picture 6).

Alongside engine development as you walk the ramp down the Mercedes Museum you can also see the vehicles becoming more streamlined. The principle of form following function is best seen at one of the sweeping displays that maximise the space of the Mercedes Museum (Picture 3).

Visiting the Mercedes & Porches Museums in Stuttgart shines a spotlight on what we humans have achieved in terms of automotive technology in just 130 years. As we go forward in time the evolution of new automotive technology seems destined for similarly remarkable rates of evolution with an influence on our lives and the environment that seems incalculable right now. Therefore please reserve some spare time for reading the follow-up article to this one scheduled for the PCWA magazine of December 2145!

Ferdinand Porsche was involved in the development of the 1930 Mercedes Super Sport and on the experimental vehicle in the foreground picture showing streamlining. Streamlining principles are also apparent in the Type 356 designed by Ferdinand’s son Ferry Porsche: many variations on 40

Cooler conditions greeted the competitors for SSR6 and again a massive thanks to the 40 cars that turned out to battle it out, the track not really warming up which made for some excellent slippery action.

Gary Jacobs who set a blistering time to come in 3rd in his Cayman S and Daniel Bathe who again showed how it’s done in his PDK Boxster. Simon Line also performed very well in his lovely sky blue 911RS.

The competition was again a very high quality and high speed affair with some really fast times, excellent smooth driving and ultra close results.

Other notable performances came from 2 guys who have been around the PCWA Sports series since Govt Whitlam days in Allan Guelfi and Deryck Graham, both of whom were bedding in new cars, Allan in his new toy a mighty 997.1 GT3 and Deryck in his suped up Cayman S with a twist. Deryck is still to name this eye popping Cayman

Congrats goes to Tim Wolfe in his flying 996 GT3 recording the fastest time of the day just pipping the ever reliable Daniel Devres in his 74RS Replica. Kudos also goes to

we hope it’s going to be something tough to match its crazy looks & performance! Another fantastic day of fun in a flat six ended with everyone having a total blast and thanks again to all who attended and also thanks again to Jurgen and MC Motorsport for always putting on a well organised show.

The day started in fine sunshine with another excellent turnout of 30 entries, which was sensational considering 6 PCWA Sports Series Stalwarts were away in Europe and SSR7 was contested on a Wednesday! After sign in and scrutineering we got underway. After two laps Colin Strickland developed an engine/oil issue, and his trusty yellow 911 decided to deposit its cargo of oil on the main straight. This did cause some delay however unforseen events like this is testimony to how strong the PCWA sporting series is at the moment. A brief meeting & discussions with the competitors and everyone got involved in the clean up. All up we only lost 50 minutes due to the oil dump. Colin assures me the car will be sorted for next year, I must tip my hat at Colin, he has become one of PCWA most supportive members and his help in running events and unwavering support and participation in the PCWA sporting series is invaluable!

Tim Wolfe GT3

I was expecting records to tumble however it was windy, quite warm and the track surface was not perfect so this did not occur however every member performed well and enjoyed themselves. The save of the day has to go to Gerry Willems who saved the Boxster in sensational fashion entering the main straight. Gerry really is pound for pound one of the best drivers at the PCWA! I joined the club with Gerry back in November 2006 and get great enjoyment watching him peddle his famous yellow Boxster S. His car is now well over 10 years old but turns up well presented and very competitive at every event he has won the club championship more than once which is a testament to the quality of his driving & another gong for mid engine mastery! So contestants take note, you don’t need a GT3 to win although it would be nice to have one in the garage anyway lol.

Jacobs and Luke O’Malley is still alive and well , as sporting director you get to meet all and sundry, with some being well organised track day kings and some are not. However the common thread is the love of their cars and track days. As usual Daniel Devries set the fastest lap with a 1:03.2203, with the next 3 cars all being GT3’s in order it was 2nd Tim Wolfe then John Morrow and Grant Wellwood! I would like to thank Chris Clarke, Colin Strickland, Natasha Irvine, Brett Read and Richard from RJP for their help running this successful day. See you at the track & thanks for attending SSR7! Barry the Butterfly Nash.

It was good to see the competition between the mid engine boys Daniel Bathe, Gary

(Motorkhana)


There was another excellent turnout for our penultimate Sporting series with 25 competitors trying their utmost to master the one and only Motorkhana course for the entire 2015 sports series. While this format was voted on by the members at an earlier club meeting there was a little bit of grizzling from some in the field about the format, however most liked the idea. Taking this on board I will be discussing this with the 2016 Sporting director with a view to possibly having our entire 2016 series full track only events, notwithstanding the usually hill climb at Jacks Hill. This decision will be made with full consultation with all sports competitors in the 2016 series.

From the spectators point of view the day was fantastic as similarly placed competitors started at the same time going around 2 of the same course for a garage finish. It was a real treat to see as this actually simulated real race like conditions!

Boxster S before his green light, only to see him do a very nice 180, burn some rubber and end up facing the wrong way. It is a real pity as this was the only launch I did not record, it certainly would have been a great video to post to the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s facebook page!

Some excellent times were recorded too with the first 5 placings taken up by the 911â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s of Daniel Devries and Tim Wolf, closely followed by the mid engine boys Daniel Bathe, the flying rookie Adrian Buri and the ever reliably fast Gary Jacobs.

Thanks to all who attended and again to MC Motorsport for hosting an excellent and well managed event.

The highlight of the day was seeing our VP Roger Bernhardt turn off the PSM on this

See you all at the track! Edward Roose Club President.

PCWA SSR9 BARBAGALLO RACEWAY 15 OCTOBER 2015 It was a sunny afternoon when 13 club members joined 19 members of the HSV Club for the last event of the PCWA sporting series. All cars had to be scrutineered after signing on with race control. This was very efficiently and thoroughly done by two members of the HSV Club plus helpers. The driver’s briefing was the usual, be careful out there as motor racing is dangerous so don’t do anything stupid like try and pass another car on a corner and no hand held GoPros. Members who had not driven on the track were asked to grid up and they would be taken around the track by an experienced driver to show them the track and the racing line. Two of our members took advantage of this in the fading light. We started with the HSV Club’s preferred two timed runs with up to six cars on the track each time. As the night progressed this was increased to 3 timed laps which suited all drivers as it provided more time to warm the tyres and correct errors from the previous lap! We were split into 5 groups with the PCWA in groups 2 and 4. So the Porsches went

out together having sorted ourselves into a pecking order from the most obvious fastest to not so speedy. We had a good range of air cooled and water cooled, mid-engine and rear engine cars. From the decal display of Tim Wolfe in the red GT3, 3 Boxsters the Cayman S of Adrain Buri plus cabriolets of Gerrit Oplaat and Brad Bird. Not to forget David Blainey and Daniel DeVries in their race prepared classics. As the day gave way to evening we set off in our groups with lights ablaze. It was soon clear that Tim’s red GT3 was going to be hard to beat with a best time of 1:044657. But a late arrival soon changed that. Along came Daniel deVries in the all conquering blue 911 RS. “I need to go out and warm up my slicks he said”. After only 7 laps he reeled off a 1:034947 to be the fastest car on the night. The duel of the day was between the Cayman S of Adrian Buri and the turbo Boxster of Ian Smith. Adrian was the fastest with a 1: 070493 and Ian with a 1: 084230. Adrian was also 6th fastest of the 32 cars on the day. It is worth noting that last year Ian’s best time was 1: 122603 (what a difference track tyres can make).

We all managed to stay on the black stuff but there were a few corrections to be made on some of the corners. We put that down to cold track or tyre pressures but not driver error! Some of the HSV members had trouble stopping their chariots at turn 1 and managed to bury one red HSV. Brad Bird complained that his night vision was not good and said it was difficult to find his braking markers. We suggested he let son George go out as a seeing-eyeson, but that did not go down too well. The evening finished around 10 pm with the three Boxsters the last to leave having completed over 24 laps each. Porsches filled 5 of the top 10 places with Daniel and Tim first and second on the night. The evening was another “Goldilocks night” of racing. Not too hot and not too cold, just right. We thanked the HSV Club for a very well organized night of racing and sausage sizzle. After speaking to one of the committee members thanking them for their hospitality, he said they are looking forward to us joining them again next year. Graeme Robson

The Ultimate Turbo 911 Ex-Steve McQueen 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo

McQueen died in 1980 at age 50, and his cool, laconic style on the screen is the antithesis of the well-meaning but smarmy things that are written about him today. The one thing that can safely be said about Steve McQueen is he liked machines — things that clattered, rattled and zoomed. He owned airplanes, motorcycles and especially cars. Like this 1976 Porsche Turbo Carrera. The Porsche Thing McQueen’s first-ever new car was a black 1958 Porsche 356A 1600 S Speedster that is still owned by the McQueen family. When the actor took his new car to the Santa Barbara road races in May 1959, he received a lukewarm reception until he won the novice event. Soon he bought the 1956 Jaguar XKSS that had been owned by James E. Peterson, the architect of Riverside International Raceway. And he went on to race a variety of cars while filming movies, including a Mini Cooper S, an Austin-Healey Sprite and a Cooper T56 Formula Junior. He quickly became known as a car enthusiast, and Sports Illustrated even collared him for one of those celebrity automotive stories (some things never change) in the edition of August 8, 1966, in which he drove eight cars at Riverside, including his first-ever Porsche 911. Of this newly introduced Porsche, McQueen said, “The old Porsches had that violent oversteer tendency, and they would get out of whack with no warning. Now the problem has been 52

corrected. The 911 was a very neutral-handling car, very docile, very pleasant to drive, and the five-speed gearbox sure was easy to use.” Finding the McQueen Ferrari But Mike Regalia found Steve McQueen because of a Ferrari, not a Porsche. A longtime specialist in custom cars and now the owner of Regalia Concours Restorations in Sun Valley, California, Regalia had just sold his own Ferrari Testarossa in 1997. Prices in the classic car market had ebbed after the recession of the early 1990s and he thought it might be his last chance to personally own a collectible Ferrari. Regalia went looking for a Ferrari 250 GTL “Lusso” Berlinetta, perhaps the most beautiful of the early Ferrari GT cars. Then a friend called him with news about a Lusso locked away in an industrial space in San Francisco. Regalia went to see the car and met Tom Sherwood, who had owned the Lusso since 1972. Regalia recalls, “The seller claimed Steve McQueen was the original owner, but he had nothing to confirm it. He was asking $135,000 when Lussos were selling for $85,000. I made a fair offer and kept in touch. It took two years to do the deal.”

Later the Lusso’s original sales document was uncovered and it transpired that the 1963 Ferrari 250 GTL Berlinetta had been purchased for McQueen’s 34th birthday by his wife, Neile. Specially painted Morrane, a metallic dark brown, the car was a favorite of McQueen’s until the engine started smoking under acceleration in 1967 and he sold it. Regalia was slowly restoring the Lusso when the organizers of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance asked him to complete the car in time for their 2005 event, which would honor Pininfarina, the design house that did the Lusso’s bodywork. And after some 4,000 hours of restoration, the McQueen Lusso finally appeared in public. In August 2007, the McQueen Ferrari Lusso became the centerpiece of Christie’s lastever car auction, selling for a stunning $2.31 million. But letting the Lusso go left a hole in Mike Regalia’s life. What could ever replace such a precious possession?

Eventually the car was sold for cash (plus a custom handgun previously owned by McQueen that Regalia had acquired).

Steve McQueen’s Ferrari 250 GT Lusso


The Widowmaker Steve McQueen’s connection with Porsche during the production process of Le Mans (1971) had been quite well documented by 2008. During preparation for the film, he drove a Slate Gray 1969 Porsche 911S. In the months before filming began in 1970, he owned and raced a Porsche 908 racing car. For his personal use during filming in France, he purchased a Slate Gray 1970 Porsche 911S in Europe. The ’69 911S is still owned by the McQueen family, while the ’70 911S is in private hands and is driven weekly. 1971, Le Mans, France– Steve McQueen on the set of the film Le mans

Barbara Minty, the actor’s third wife, remembers the Porsche as a handful when she rode with McQueen. Steve McQueen with Derek Bell at Le Mans 1970. During filming for the movie Steve got around on this bicycle. on the car to break it in. Finally Smith and his wife Becky arrived in the Porsche 930 for a dinner with McQueen and Ali McGraw, McQueen’s second wife. Seeing the car in the metal sealed the deal and McQueen finally took delivery of his third 911. McQueen’s 1969 911 S is owned by son Chad

McQueen’s 1970 911 S sold for $1.37 million US

The Turbo didn’t stay stock for long. The first change was a switch on the dash to knock out the taillights and brake lights in case of hot pursuit by law enforcement personnel. Later the standard 15-by-7-inch front and 15-by-8-inch rear Fuchs wheels were replaced by 15-by-8inch front and 15-by-9-inch rear Fuchs wheels. By 1978, McQueen’s divorce from McGraw was in the cards. Barbara Minty, the model who became the actor’s third wife, still remembers the Porsche Turbo as quite a handful when she rode at McQueen’s side. In the midst of his domestic mayhem, McQueen happened to be talking to Pete Smith about the 3.3-liter version of the Turbo that had just been announced, and he offered to sell his Slate Gray Turbo back to Smith, For this Porsche 930, the McQueen years were over. Discovering the Gray Ghost

Steve McQueen’s Porsche 1970 911 S at the Le Mans film set 1971 Yet McQueen apparently wasn’t yet done with Porsche after Le Mans. The introduction of the 1976 Porsche Turbo Carrera in the U.S. caused quite a stir, as it represented Porsche’s first real supercar, a monster 911 with the then-impressive output of 234 horsepower at 5,500 rpm in U.S. trim, with torque rated at 246 pound-feet at 4,000 rpm. The actor immediately ordered one ($25,880) from Pete Smith at Bob Smith Porsche in Hollywood. He asked for three special options: a sunroof ($675), a limited-slip differential ($345) and Slate Gray paint ($250). When the Turbo Carrera arrived some months later, McQueen was in no great rush to pay for it and pick it up. Pete Smith put 100 miles

After McQueen, the Porsche’s ownership can be traced to car dealer Pete Smith, film director Floyd Mutrux, and then to Dean Paul Martin, the son of singer Dean Martin and an actor in his own right who was killed in 1987 in a jet fighter while serving in the Air National Guard. Enthusiast Craig Barrett next owned the McQueen Porsche. In 2008, a year after the sale of the Lusso at Christie’s, the McQueen Porsche Turbo found itself in a Gooding & Company auction at Monterey. It was one of the last cars added to the catalog and not much was being made of the McQueen connection. Still mourning the sale of his McQueen Lusso, Mike Regalia went along to see the Porsche. Since a pair of McQueen’s sunglasses had recently sold for $70,000, Regalia didn’t expect his budget would stretch far enough to purchase the car, which the auction house estimated to be worth between $125,000 and $175,000. But as the bidding began to stall

just past the $100,000 mark, Regalia’s hand went up. He bought the car for $137,500. The Ghost Drives Again Since picking up the McQueen Turbo in 2008, Regalia has done nothing but drive it, although he’s installed 16-inch Fuchs wheels with low-profile Michelin tires. It shows evidence of a restoration completed in 1995 and has 152,000 miles on the odometer. The auction spiel at the time of sale said this car was in perfect mechanical condition, but the clutch cable is unhappy, the shift lever is looser than you’d like and there’s a curious sound from the left front. A box of air-conditioning parts is also awaiting installation. But today we get to photograph the car at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, so it feels just fine to us. As we leave the track, we narrowly escape a speeding ticket from a ranger patrolling the state park that surrounds the motorsports facility. “Steve would have loved that,” notes Regalia. “A speeding ticket at Laguna Seca!” Once you put your foot down, this turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-6 spools up delightfully, though it’s not as almighty as we’re expecting. The 1976 Porsche Turbo didn’t feature a boost gauge and probably the single turbocharger’s 11.5-psi output wouldn’t impress us anyway, since we’re only talking about 234 hp here. The 930 was really only a monster because it made 77 hp more than a standard 911 of the time. As we rumble back to the parking lot at the end of our drive, Chad McQueen — Steve’s son — is on hand to say hello. “When I was 15, I got caught borrowing this car for a ride around the neighborhood,” recalls Chad. “I got my ass kicked for that one, but it was worth it!” Mike Regalia might say the same thing. Though he made some money from his sale of the McQueen Ferrari, he remains simply a McQueen fan at heart. He has the freedom to drive the hell out of the Porsche and apologize to no one, and that’s about as close as you can come to the real Steve McQueen .
