Good luck John and I will watch out eagerly for the first issue.

I know we talked about digital magazines and traffic flow and specific content etc. when I saw your at SVP so your head is focused and ready to go, so Gentleman start your keyboards.



Dennis Joseph March 31, 2012 at 5:21 pm

Good luck! I really enjoyed the first 3 editions and I really hope you can build on that and produce something really great for us Porsche nuts around the world.


Jeremy Evans March 31, 2012 at 5:45 pm

Well done John. I think Ferdinand is in the best hands for what it is and can grow to be. Put me down for issue 4 !


Tony March 31, 2012 at 10:21 pm

Good Luck with this John,
Brave move deserves to succeed – still miss DR!
But please can we have a downloadable version for non ipad users!



John March 31, 2012 at 10:27 pm

I’ll see what I can do, Tony ;)


Paul Lowe April 1, 2012 at 6:10 pm

Well done John,

I really enjoy your articles.

Please spend 30 seconds and and follow me on Twitter
#porschesauce Looking at sourcing interesting Porsche globally.

Best regards


John April 2, 2012 at 10:59 am

Thanks Paul, I appreciate the support.


Matt April 1, 2012 at 8:08 pm

Pleased you’ve taken this on, John. I enjoyed the concept and execution of Ferdinand and, like you, certainly see room in the market for it. I read a number of motoring titles monthly, and mix it up between print and digital. Good luck. I will certainly subscribe.


John April 2, 2012 at 11:00 am

Thanks Matt, hopefully we can bring it to a new level over time. The whole genre is so brand new: mega exciting for readers and advertisers alike.


nick bailey April 2, 2012 at 10:16 am


best of luck – great story and you have the passion!


John April 2, 2012 at 10:58 am

Thanks mate! See you soon ;)


Roger Harradine April 2, 2012 at 11:10 am

Well done John and we wish you everything of the best.
With your deep regard for the marque and your incredible enthusiasm we know your venture will be a huge success

John April 2, 2012 at 11:12 am

Thanks Roger! Hope all is well with your crowd.


PabloAU April 2, 2012 at 11:39 am

Lurking in the shadows at Impact bumpers and reading your articles – I now have re-entered the 911 world with an 85 RUF RSR Replica – your fault mate.

Look forward to bigger & brighter with the NEW Ferdinand & really life gets better with all this good stuff – Good luck & you have our support



John April 2, 2012 at 11:39 am

Haha! Cool!!!


Robert April 6, 2012 at 2:53 pm

Good luck with the new venture. Certainly the first three were very good. Don’t price the new issue too high and I’m sure you will have a winner on your hands. And if you cover more of the older stuff rather than the newer cars, that gets my vote as well
Robert Young – proud 964 owner


John April 6, 2012 at 2:57 pm

Thanks Robert! No the price will not be too high. The Ferdinand model is evolving but certainly classics will be at the forefront of our content; they are my big interest, as you know. Follow us on Facebook if you are on there and please keep in touch with your feedback as we go along. JG


Adam April 8, 2012 at 10:27 am

Well done John,

Am presuming if this effort is anything like the other pieces you’ve done, its a must have subscription. Good luck with it, and keep the 2.7 / 3.0 Carrera articles flowing! Anything old and quirky with a Porsche badge always makes a fantastic read.

John April 8, 2012 at 10:28 am

Thanks Adam, we aim to please! The content ideas are huge – big job at the minute is just getting the platforms worked out properly and then we will go for it. Carrera forever!


Adam April 10, 2012 at 12:00 pm

Yeah … Carrera forever!!

By the way, you must do something on Otto Mathe, in his mad hand made 4 cam ‘Fetzenflieger’ car from the fifties / sixties. Did see an article on the little racer he built, and could only drive with one arm (as the other one stopped working). Saw more of this detail in the photos out of Von Hanstein’s ‘The Racing Baron’ book. Not sure who owns the Mathe car now, but its a ripper of a story, and all Porsche!




John April 10, 2012 at 2:55 pm

Would you believe I was JUST reading about him again yesterday. Yes, on my list of holiday detective assignments.


Chris kimberley April 28, 2012 at 4:36 pm

Good Luck John, i know our baby is in safe hands and I am dying to see what you do with it. I am sure you will do us proud.




Robert July 1, 2012 at 12:46 pm

When are we likely to see the new ‘e’ magazine – been a lot of Facebook postings most days, good as they are, but no news of the new electronic magazine, over the last three months, since the original one closed



John July 2, 2012 at 3:37 pm

It’s not as simple as just deciding to do it Robert. The pieces for scalable growth after launch have to be in place and there is an audience to build. Nothing happens with the magazine until the new website is finished and there is zero rush on it at this end. We are working on other apps as a priority. Thanks for asking!


Alex Willis August 17, 2012 at 7:49 pm

Did I miss issue 3? Do you keep the back issues somewhere online?


John August 18, 2012 at 10:32 am

Hi Alex. There was an issue 3 but the previous owners folded soon after it came out & the previous app hosts pulled the mags offline. We are reworking the original issues and will re-release them all in time so no worries ;)


Twinny September 5, 2012 at 11:42 pm

Never been an early adopter. Good luck with this John. Exciting times.


John September 6, 2012 at 11:40 am

Cheers my darling!!


John Joseph September 10, 2012 at 3:34 pm

John I remember when I first read your running reports on the white 911 years ago and have had a fantastic time on your IB forum over the years.
Having started with an air cooled 911 I am now also discovering the front engined cars and can’t wait to get into this e-magazine (hope you do some stuff on the 924 turbo project). Where do I sign.
John Joseph


John September 11, 2012 at 2:27 pm

John! Thanks for the support! We will certainly run stories on my 924T: keep me in the loop on your projects ;)


Alpole September 12, 2012 at 8:41 pm

Good luck John will follow with interest. Still lurking on the IB website and still after replacing the clubby.


John September 13, 2012 at 3:45 pm

Thanks Al! Keep in touch, this should be right up your street.


ahmet October 18, 2012 at 9:15 pm

this is simply magic!!!!
pls keep us updated with all past & present documentaries & news ?
good luck & bes wishes,


Bruce October 24, 2012 at 9:54 pm

Good luck with this venture ,remember it is the classic that got the Porsche name where it is now,some how i can not see the Panamera being a classic ….ever


John October 25, 2012 at 12:24 am

Cheers Bruce. Can’t disagree with you amigo: not many Renault 25s being stashed away and Panzer is from the same gene pool. New Porsche could build a little car and have an instant smash, but that famous badge will only ever be positioned at the top of the VW marketing tree now. What we’ve got in classic is a precious thing.


John Chesworth December 3, 2012 at 2:53 pm

Very, very best of luck with Ferdinand. Seems unbelievable that its more than two years since we met on the way back from CLM in 2010!

Am busy putting my 70/70 celebration together………70 yrs young and 70+degrees North…..why don’t you come along in June 2013? OK, I know you don’t qualify on age but …………..

keep in touch and “Good Luck”


John December 5, 2012 at 9:42 am

Johnny! What a great trip that was – a real delight to end on such a high. Will track your progress on 70/70 ;)
