Bruce Anderson, PCA and Porsche icon, passes

The Porsche Club of America has lost one of its most cherished member and pioneering technical resource. Bruce Anderson passed away this past Saturday. Perhaps appropriately, we received the news during the PCA Winter Board Meeting, a meeting Bruce attended regularly from 1981 through 2001 as the Chairman of the PCA Technical Committee. Those new to PCA may not realize that Bruce was key in establishing a Technical Committee in PCA. He realized early on the importance of delivering technical information to our members. His legacy lives as the PCA Tech Committee prepares for a new online launch and continues its successful Tech Academy and Tech Tactics events. Bruce was well known for generously sharing his vast knowledge of Porsche cars. He not only provided questions and answers for PCA's Porsche Panorama magazine, but for other publications including Excellence Magazine as well. Enthusiasts with an air-cooled 911 more than likely have his 911 Performance Handbook close by in the garage. In fact, I'm convinced that God probably had a misfire on his 911 and needed Bruce's expertise to fix it.

He and his wife, Stephanie, were fixtures at Porsche Parades and PCA events for many decades. Those who spent time with Bruce knew they were lucky to have known such a great man. With his trademark suspenders and that big smile, he made you feel as though you were the only person in the room.

We at the Porsche Club of America offer our most sincere condolences to Stephanie and the Anderson family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
