Corn Creak Off-Road Drive
On February 16th our members enjoyed the scenic Nevada deserts on our second off-roading excursion. The trail through Corn Creak proved to be a little less forgiving than our last drive through Christmas Tree Pass. Nevertheless we all had a great time and made it home safely.

Special thanks go out to our two wonderful trail bosses, Scott Hatcher and Carlos Ortega.
959 Inspired 911
Earlier this week a company by the name of Marc Phillip Gemballa GmbH released the image you can see to the right.

They claim to be building a 959 inspired 911 base off the 992 chassis. These limited 40 cars will be made with full carbon fiber bodys and have "off-road capability". After-all the 959 was meant to be a rally car.

If the last name Gemballa sounds familiar, that is because Marc is the son of legendary Porsche restyler Uwe Gemballa. There has not been a price set for the 40 examples of the reimagination of the legendary Porsche. Marc has partnered with the likes of Michelin, KW Suspension, and Akropovic.
