Where’s the road ahead taking you this year? With Christmas and the New Year well and truly done and dusted, it’s time to start looking forward to the warmer months ahead, for those of us in the northern hemisphere at least. Daylight hours are getting longer, salt is disappearing from our roads, and already there’s a whiff of anticipation in the air as the year’s early car events take place. At last, summer will soon be on its way. The sunny season will of course bring about plenty of opportunities to get out and drive, but for the big-ticket activities – namely track days and road trips with friends – careful planning will have begun in earnest. “We present to you the definitive Porsche bucket list for 2020” It’s for this reason we…

Belgian Legend Edition 992 revealed Special Carrera 4S pays homage to Jacky Ickx Porsche has revealed its first special edition of the 992-generation 911. The Belgian Legend Edition, made by Porsche Exclusive, pays homage to one of the greatest racing drivers of all time, Jacky Ickx, who turned 75 in January. Based on a 992 Carrera 4S, the car is finished in a unique Paint To Sample hue of ‘X Blue’, inspired by Ickx’s trademark blue-and-white helmet.

Porsche sets out road map for 2020 motorsport success Driver changes plus programme commitments announced Weissach has revealed its plans for the 2020 motorsports season, as it looks to build on successes in a series of campaigns last year. Although the factory team has pulled out of top-level competition in the WEC, Porsche has announced the two factory RSRs currently competing in the competition’s GT category will once again be joined by two further RSRs from the Stateside USCC for Le Mans in June, meaning four works 911s will tackle the famous 24-hour marathon at La Sarthe just like in 2019. Porsche has also announced some minor changes to its driver roster for the 2020 season. The most high-profile departure is that of Brendon Hartley, who most notably paired with Mark Webber in a…

During my career, there were several drivers I respected and admired, including the late Pedro Rodriguez. I admired him the most and got on very well with him. He was a marvellous driver in the rain, and many drivers respected him. He was very quick, and bloody difficult to overtake (although I managed it a few times). Above all though, he was absolutely, totally fair. I drove around the outside of him in Buenos Aires in a long 180-degree corner. We were both coming out of it together at about 150mph. He could easily have put me off the road, but he didn’t. Pedro left me just enough room. Not too many people would have done that. I mentioned previously that I didn’t get too close to other drivers, but I got…

The road trip of a lifetime Dear Sir, It was issue 115 when I first got Total 911 magazine in my hand. The most impressive article was ‘3.2 Carrera road trip’, which featured an air-cooled Carrera on tour from Passo Tourismo. From that very moment, I dreamed I would drive that 3.2 Carrera in the European alps some day. Well, I visited Munich on a business trip recently, and the very first thing I did was to contact Passo Tourismo to repeat this awesome feature! Finally, I’ve got a wonderful day trip around Wendelstein! Kentaro Ito This is exactly what Total 911 is all about: inspiring others to make the most of the Porsche 911 and the magnificent culture around it. Your exploits, Kentaro, fit in perfectly with our theme for this issue in…
