Editor-In-Chief: Paula (aka "Pepper Girl")
Introduced to the world of Porsche via my husband, my love affair with the marque we all love so much started later than most. However, once I fell, I fell hard - as evidenced by this site. When not working on the site you'll find me trying out a new recipe or packing the dogs into the Cayenne for a short ride to one of our many favorite walking trails.
