Default Anyone catch the article in Hemmings Sports & Exotic Car?

The Transaxle Porsches, including the Porsches which defied tradition (like the 928)

I was at the local Barnes and Noble, and didn't see it... None? Went on sale 8/23

yes; very good article. Hemmings is one of the few that understand these front engine water cooled Porsches.

nothing new, but well presented nevertheless. A keeper for the literature collection for sure.

It's another sad day for magazines. Got a letter with my subscription stating this is the last addition of this great magazine. I was introduced to several exotics and learned more about others. What other magazine will cover my personal favorites, an early 80's Supra and a 928. This magazine was like a box full of chocolate.

Yes, and converted our remaining subscription to "Hemmings (American) Classic Cars". How nice... [/sarcasm]

But at least they were kind enough to include a phone# to cancel and get a refund, which I immediately did...

My friend was to have his Opel GT featured in the next issue. The photos had been taken and everything. He is very sad.

I've flipped through this mag before but never had a subscription. Keith Martin's Sports Car Market is one of my favorite reads for classic and vintage sports cars. Definitely worth looking into if you never have before.
