It doesn’t matter what corner of the automotive scene an enthusiast inhabits, the message is the same: the future is all-electric. Porsche is leading the charge (groan) with the hugely successful Taycan and, more frequently than ever before, derelict air-cooled cars are being given a new lease of life with a conversion to battery power. The gorgeous Carrera RS 2.7 evocation on the cover of this magazine is a fine example of how the designs of yesteryear and the technology of today can combine to create a thoroughly stylish and hugely powerful Porsche. Battery power is the way forward, then? Done deal? The vast majority of us are desensitised to politicians demonising the internal combustion engine and trying to convince us to ditch our perfectly sensible years-old car for a brand-new…

We don’t know about you, but when we hear someone mention Glorious Goodwood, we immediately think about horsepower, rather than horses. For Porsche owners and enthusiasts alike, the return of the Goodwood Festival of Speed a few weeks ago was indeed a glorious occasion and, importantly, a chance to experience something resembling normality. Not that there’s ever anything particularly normal about automotive events at Goodwood – they offer a rare opportunity to savour the sights, sounds and smells of cars which have etched their place in motoring history and, more often than not, in the hearts and minds of the hundreds of thousands of petrolheads in attendance.

PORSCHE GT TEAM SECURES PODIUM AT 24 HOURS OF LE MANS Porsche has secured a podium spot in the fiercely contested GTE-Pro class at the eighty-ninth edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Works drivers, Kévin Estre and Neel Jani, together with Michael Christensen, achieved third place in the No.92 991 RSR-19. The No.91 sister car driven by Gianmaria Bruni, Richard Lietz and Frédéric Makowiecki wrapped up round four of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) in fourth place. The in-house fight between the works 911s for the final podium spot was decided an hour before the flag dropped: after sliding in the last chicane, the rear of the No.91 car had to undergo repairs and replacement of its brakes. “Our team put in a spirited performance,” explains Fritz Enzinger, Vice…

CHRISTOPHER WARD C60 #tide WRISTWATCH Inspired by those who seek to preserve the oceans, the new Christopher Ward C60 #tide is not only a COSC-certified dive watch (and comes with paperwork to prove the fact), but the perfect partner for the company’s new line of #tide straps, developed in partnership with the Swiss University of Applied Sciences and made from upcycled plastics. These straps reflect the mission of #tide, an organisation dedicated to transforming ocean-bound plastics into premium raw material available for the manufacturing of sustainable products, such as watch straps, thereby stopping waste plastic from entering the ecosystem. Pleasingly, £5 from the sale of every #tide strap (super-comfortable canvasstyle fabric, complete with quick-release latches and available to buy as either 20mm or 22mm widths in a range of colours) will be…
