on the tail of the dragon in a gt3 touring

IF YOU BUY INTO A CERTAIN vision of the future, it’s easy to get depressed about what car nerds have to look forward to. Then you spend a Saturday chasing a 918 and a Carrera GT up and down the Tail of the Dragon in a 911 GT3 Touring and all you can think about is how to get all the “just need to get from point A to point B” people on public transit so that cars like the GT3 Touring can exist undisturbed forever.You’ve probably read about the GT3T: the manual-only, no-wing version of the GT3. It’s all—or at least a lot of—Porsche’s technical genius applied not to a set of performance targets, but an experience, a series of sensations. If I were on the starting grid at…

about the cover

As Autoweek contributor Peter Hughes points out, by 1969, Mario Andretti had already won two USAC championships, the Daytona 500 and the 12 Hours of Sebring sports-car race. For Andretti, however, the defining moment of his career came on May 30, 1969. That day, Andretti drove an STP-sponsored Brawner Hawk—actually, it was his backup car after he lost his primary car in a crash in practice—to his only Indianapolis 500 win. Now, 50 years later, Hughes talks with Andretti about that 1969 season, how the stars aligned at Indianapolis and, yes, even the Andretti Curse. See the story starting on page 22.…

french cut

The national enthusiasm over Peugeot’s planned return to the United States has been muted so far, and no wonder: Few Americans have ever seen, much less owned, a French car.Even fewer have been upside down in one, which gives me a nearly unique perspective here.I was never upside down in a Peugeot, except financially. A 504 I owned briefly was almost comically unreliable, but it was a Renault Dauphine that spit me out as it cartwheeled across a suburban lawn.In a period of transportational desperation, I bought the car from a guy who claimed to have driven it from Michigan to California “without any trouble. Used a little oil is all.” He asked $200. We settled on $180. He threw in a quart of 30-weight to sweeten the deal.Next morning,…

back to life

FOR MUCH OF ALFA ROMEO’S presence in the U.S., the long-lived Spider was the face of the marque here. But the automaker was also lucky to have a sporty coupe in its lineup, which largely relied on enthusiast offerings up until the Italian company’s withdrawal from the U.S. in 1995. The Tipo 116 Alfetta debuted in the U.S. in 1975 in coupe and sedan form, but it’s the coupe you’ll have a much easier time finding today. In fact, you don’t have to travel far to find one just about anywhere in the U.S., with the exceptions of, say, Alaska or Montana—Alfa Romeo sold a generous number of these Giugiaro-penned coupes for over a decade.We traveled to the heart of classic Italian car country—southern New England—to go for a spin…

better, safer, faster

NOW THAT THE LAST slush pile has melted and the bugs are back, it’s time to ride your motorcycle again. Whether you’re a knee-scraping road hero or a total beginner, you can always get better—and safer—with a riding school. With a little of what the pros call “skill,” you’ll find you enjoy riding more, and you’ll reduce the number of times per mile that you scare yourself half to death.Bare-bones beginning riders should start with a Motorcycle Safety Foundation course called Starting The Ride. Check out msf-usa.org to find an MSF class near you.If you want to go faster but still be safe, you will want to do a track school. I took Fastrack’s Rider Development School (fastrackriders.info), an all-day experience on the roval—half-oval, half-road—at Southern California’s famed Auto Club…
