Panorama Editor-in-Chief picks Turbo 3.0 As Best Book

July 30, 2019

Rob Sass , Editor-in-Chief of PCA's Panorama magazine, had this to say (at 0:34:16) when asked during a Cars Yeah interview to pick his favorite automotive book:

"Ryan Snodgrass's book on early Porsche Turbos is probably the greatest single model book that I've ever seen in my life.  I have not been able to put it down since getting it. It is just full of every bit of geeky goodness about those cars. It is phenomenal."

Of course, when asked at 0:28:07 by Mark Greene if manifested into a car, what kind of car would Robb Sass be, his affinity for the Turbo was clear. Sass answered he'd like to be a 1975 or 1976 Turbo Carrera, the first generation Turbo: "I think that they are kind of a little bit edgy. It was the height of the malaise era. A car I really respect as when everything else was slow and crappy, you had this car that would go 0 to 60 in about 5 seconds. Performance on par with a muscle car from ten years before at a time when people were building the Mustang II. If I could aspire to be any car...I'm not a 75-76 Turbo Carrera, but if I could that is probably what it would be as it was so shocking and so surprising and a little bit unpredictable." "Porsche never got the memo that the malaise era was going on."
