The Wilderness Trail Region lost a beloved and active member … PCA has lost a respected multi-year associate … and I’ve lost a friend and confidant.  We mourn the passing of Hugh Tackett.
 
At the recent PCA Board of Directors meeting, Porsche announced an international ‘Sports Car Day’.  Scheduled day is June 09, 2018.  Porsche is announcing this day as a day for you to drive your Porsche, and then post photos of your drive to a soon to be announced site.  This will be done worldwide, so you can expect to see Porsche and Porsche owners’ photos from around the globe.  Stay tuned for more information.
 
Events coming up in March, include the Zone 3 Presidents meeting, hosted this time around by Trissl Sports Cars, in Florence, AL; the East coast Werks Reunion in conjunction with the Amelia Island Concours; and Tennessee Regions’ Winterfest event at the VW plant, in Chattanooga, TN.
 
Porsche teased the world on February 23rd, with some camouflage shots of the 2019 Porsche 911…now to be called the 992.  Watch for future photos at a newsstand close to you!
 
Thinking about going to Rennsport Reunion VI, at Laguna Seca, CA?  Dates are September 27 through 30, 2018.  Much information about this Porsche prepared event, can be found at … http://press.porsche.com/news/release.php?id=1052
 
It's been nine years since Porsche introduced a diesel-powered version of its Cayenne SUV, following that with diesel versions of the Panamera and Macan. And now in 2018, that saga is coming to an end as Porsche terminates production of all its diesel vehicles for the foreseeable future.
 
See you at the next PCA event!
