911 Porsche World


- Dan Furr Editor @Danfurr

Is your third attempt at 2020 getting off to a good start?! I sincerely hope so. The past couple of years have proved challengin­g for everyone, and although we are by no means out of trouble, it’s good to see the shoots of something resembling normality entering our lives. As far as 911 & Porsche World is concerned, I’d like to pay tribute to the hard work of the magazine’s contributo­rs during the past year, ensuring we’ve continued production without interrupti­on, even when COVID has thrown best-laid plans into disarray. I’m not expecting 2022 to be particular­ly easy, but with the last twelve months seeing a significan­tly increased readership driving boosts in pagination and demand for bumper issues (including this one), I’m certainly excited to bring you much of what we’ve got planned for the year ahead.

Looking forward is all well and good, but it’s great to indulge in our favourite manufactur­er’s illustriou­s past. In this issue of the world’s best-selling monthly Porsche magazine, we comb our mullets, check our filofaxes, slip into our shell suits and celebrate icons from the era of excess. Chief among our 1980s icons are the 928 and 944, but air-cooled cars also had an important role to play during the decade of Reaganomic­s, not least the Carrera 3.2 (arguably the period’s most popular pin-up Porsche) and the ground-breaking 956 endurance racing prototype, which announced its arrival in dramatic fashion at the 1982 24 Hours of Le Mans. Across the following pages, we examine the events leading up to this historical­ly significan­t moment in Porsche’s motorsport timeline. Strap yourself in, kick back and enjoy the ride.
