Rennsport Reunion 6 to Minnesota

This is a story about my travels to Rennsport Reunion Six in Monterey, California and the drive back to Minnesota in my 2007 Porsche Cayman S. On this 3,000 mile journey, I encountered many things, some truly blissful, others agonizing. When you are caught thinking about a long road trip from your cubicle, you think, “wow, I could use one of those right now.” Just you, your Porsche, and the open road. But no cross-country road trip comes without some perils. The trick is, how do you overcome the obstacles and come home safely having chased every adventure to the fullest? This is the story of my trip. Some of you may not know me yet, but my name is Josh Hway. I am a freelance photographer and car-nut. I bought my Porsche from a local gentleman in Eden Prairie with only 35K miles on the clock just three years ago. Since that happy day, I have basically daily-driven the car with the exception of winters, but I have always dreamed of hitting the highway with my little Cayman in search of new roads and grand adventures. Finally, in late 2017 the PCA announced plans for the sixth Rennsport Reunion […]

Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio – Amelia Island

My experience going on the press drive with FCA Alfa Romeo North America in the all new Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio at Amelia Island 2017 did not disappoint. During the Amelia Island Concours D’Elegance there are many events happening at once. Thankfully I was attending as Media this year and got to sign up for the Alfa Romeo press drives which included a short time to photograph the car! During our 25 mile tour we put the car through every typical task: 0-60, 0-100, braking, etc. Overall, my thoughts on the Alfa are extremely positive! The driving experience, despite the option of a manual transmission, is very entertaining. Who knew a 2.9 liter V6 could sound as good as this! During up and downshifts the farts and burbles coming out of the quad exhaust tips are intoxicating! Beyond the sublime driving experience, fit and finish of the interior actually shame some of the Giulia’s German rivals. So is Alfa back? Does this lineup offer the same level of ‘Alfa magic’ the longtime fans have come to know? Well I know one thing, I’d buy it. Thank you to Alfa Romeo North America for this drive and Burj for being my […]

2008 Porsche Cayman GTR WIDEBODY

During my visit to the 2017 Amelia Island Concours D’Elegance there was also the Porsche Werks Reunion just one fairway away!

1967 Ferrari 330 P4

What can I say about the 330 P4 Ferrari? What can I say that gives the P4 justice? Its a car built by craftsmen and speed-freaks with one purpose, to “win”. Enzo Ferrari’s instructions where very clear after watching Ford dominate LeMans in 1965 and 1966, win! And in 1967, thats what they did, win. The Ferrari 330 P4 became a race winner and a winner of hearts with it’s unmistakable shape. Everywhere you look there are convex shapes, concave shapes, and louvres all riveted together in perfect harmony. I was lucky enough to see the one that took second in that famous LeMans comeback at this year’s Finali Mondiali in Daytona Beach, Florida. Petrolicious did a wonderful video on this exact car a couple of years ago.

2016 SP275RW Competizione – Finali Mondiali 2016

2016 Ferrari SP275RW Competizione   A complete surprise to everyone, this car was reportedly at the factory less than a week before the Finali Mondiali event in Daytona Beach this past weekend. Not being a production model, just about everyone that walked past it gave it a double take and wondered what it was. From what I gathered, this was a one-off Italian Stallion for one of Ferrari’s very special customers. Based on an F12 TDF underneath, the entire exterior and much of the interior appears to be completely bespoke. The exterior design drew its inspiration from the 1967 275 GTB/4 as seen in the pictures below with the signature four gills on each side behind the front wheels. The headlights, though redesigned, look close to the F60 America Ferrari but with blue carbon fiber housings. The trim of the 275RW is also finished in blue carbon fiber on the rear diffuser, front grill slats, and front splitter. The interior features beautiful dark blue leather with yellow stitching and piping to match the exterior color which is a bright yellow/orange metallic. The wheels are also bespoke. The SP275RW is stunningly beautiful and will probably become one of the more valuable […]

Aston Martin DB11 – Private Reveal

I was invited to the private, invite only, DB11 sneak peek reveal at a top secret location here in MN today. This new DB11 is one of four making the rounds to different private showings around the world. DB11 production doesn’t start until June. It was a great pleasure to get to see this pre-production model in the metal this far before it goes into production. Shout out to Morries Luxury Auto and Scott for the invite. Thank you!

2016 Chicago Auto Show – Chicago Illinois

At this year’s Chicago Auto Show there were many cars and MANY people. No, I was not there on press day. However, the brand that totally brought their A-game was BMW. They had a flurry of new technology on display as well has a couple long awaited M models including the BMW M2 and M4 GTS. No matter what, its always exciting to get out and see some new cars during the cold winters here in the upper midwest. Dynamic Photowerk – Josh Hway
