500E in GT-Purely Porsche British Magazine...

July 2002 issue has an article on the 500E and Audi RS2.

I saw the article, too. Unfortunately, not particularly flattering. They speak quite highly about the RS2, but complain about the purported lack of Porsche influence on our 500E/E500s. The best comment in the article concerned the preference of the Formula teams to travel in the 500E between venues back in the early '90s.

-fad, the magazine is still available over at Borders on Powell St., although they are going to throw out the July issue as soon as the August issue arrives. (At $10, I don't think the article is worth it.)

Regards,
Bob

P.S. Looking forward to meeting -fad and Tom in San Rafael at our Marin get together!

Fad & @...

Unfortunately, when I posted, I hadn't read the article...I bought/buy the magazine based on my other passion, not for the 500E article. That was just a bonus that I thought I'd pass on.
