Back in March of 1985, the very first issue of duPont REGISTRY went on sale. With this month’s April issue, we celebrate 37 years of continuous publishing. The fact a print magazine is still in business after all that time is worthy of champagne and cake, but we haven’t just survived – we’re thriving!
The April 2022 issue (No. 443) features a Classic Supercar Theme, with The Porsche Carrera GT as our cover car this month. This mid-engine, V10-powered Porsche roadster was produced between 2003 and 2007, and like all the vehicles I’m talking about, it redefined what being “super” meant for a car.
The Carrera GT was an instant classic, made even more so by its production run being cut short. About 1,270 of the originally intended 1,500 units were produced and sold, and the one for sale on our cover may be the lowest mileage one around (at least that we know of).
Classic supercars, whether newer examples like the Carrera GT or progenitors of the genre like the Countach, are our specialty. We’ve stuffed this month’s SELL section with vintage exotics for sale to celebrate the classics. We have to admit, after 37 years and 442 issues, we feel like a classic too.
