There is a moment in every automotive enthusiast’s life they will never forget. Sure, from a young age, we are all interested in automobiles, but I’m talking about that one moment where you know it’s a done deal. You would do anything for a moment behind the wheel, again. Pressing the pedal farther and farther, until you’re at seven grand and can’t hear a damn thing. The incredible Porsche 911 you see here was my moment.

Volkswagen Beeltes are different from most cars. They never seem to go away, and yet, we’re sure that years of service have relegated most to the scrap heap—leaving fewer survivors each year. This fully restored 1956 oval window example, owned by Nicola in Bergamo, was recently tracked down by photographer Christian Baumann. What’s so special about it?

The Rally Historico Transpeninsular started in Tijuana and ended in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and I entered it in a 1973 Porsche 914 GT—a car I decided to build for the race. With my co-pilot Jim Burke, we did about 1,100 miles over three days—and what a drive it was.

Mercedes-Benz's return to motor-racing in the late 1980s proved to be very successful, very quickly. Encouraged by its on-track exploits, the engineers at Stuttgart set out to construct a road-legal counterpart to the C11. The result, which was unveiled at the 1991 Frankfurt International Motor Show, was the C112.

So there I was, moving to the countryside away from a village in which I was born and raised. There, we lived close to the railway station, but not anymore. I needed transportation, I like cycling a lot—but not during the winter or through rainstorms. I had some money, and I found myself a nice little green car—a 1967 Trabant 601 S Deluxe. It was to be my first car.

In 1957, Mercedes-Benz decided to use a single platform for its new big saloon and two-door models, due to the large development engineering and development costs. As it turns out, with the W111-series sedans, coupes, and convertibles, it created one of the best-ever model lineups offered by the brand.

Built for the fast, flowing B-Roads that follow Europe’s contours, this Porsche 911 is perhaps not that different than the canyon-carving ones found in California. But with photography by Vincent Perraud, it brings this well-prepared sports car to life. Yes, we’re just a bit envious.

With Le Mans fresh in our minds, it was only fitting that I focus on a brute built for that race in this look at another speed icon. Le Mans is such an iconic event that it, obviously, creates a challenge in picking just one example. And the BASF-sponsored, Sauber-entered BMW M1 is it.

As an architect, Monti has a unique perspective on his beloved family heirloom, a Mercedes-Benz 280 SL. In the family for 30 years, you’d be safe in assuming its crisp lines and form-follows-function details have influenced his take on buildings. But first: did you know its roof was designed to be used as a photographer’s perch?

Unless these machines are used during events like the Mille Miglia, many owners won't take their prized possessions for a proper, bugs-on-the-front road trip: they’ve become, for many, too valuable to be driven. Today, though, it got quite the workout while following a classic car rally.

At first glance the Devonshire Inn may seem like any other motel panning for business along California’s SR14, but when the track at Willow Springs goes cold, the hotel’s once quiet parking lot quickly becomes overrun by the Porsche Owner’s Club. It was here amongst a sea of modern water-cooled Porsches that Mike Carlson’s rendition of an IROC Carrera first caught my attention.
