A digital format, like PDF, opens the content to be more interactive. As you think about having interesting stories, what better than to have them occasionally with video as well. Imagine having resident enthusiasts like Eric, dr. evil, etc share 914 tips like brakes, transmissions etc. I'm with Jeff, you should think about on your subscription account sign-up page the option for paper or just digital.

Excellent ideas. Thanks. Let me also think a little about the idea of giving a print or pdf option.

Hey, the 911 has it's own magazine.s. Even just for vintage ones. I love this idea. I love that it's been given an "insider" name. I've always hated the nickname "teener" and refuse to refer it as such. Sounds like teenager. And also doesn't take the car seriously, which most didn't or respect who didn't have one. "Fourteener" refers to the model number. I like it. I also like the idea of a print magazine. Something that is tangible, we can hold in our hands, go back and look at and even collect. Something that years from now we can go back to and look upon and hold and know that something was dedicated just for this car. Print is something that ages. It becomes history.

Thanks. That sums up my thought process very well. I originally considered doing all air-cooled Porsches. It would certainly increase the potential subscription base substantially. But, it has been done, and it waters the reader loyalty down. Ultimately, my heart lies in the 914 (the mistress of my youth). And right now I can only do so much. So, I decided to stick with the 914 only, and wanted an "insider" name. Karl Ludvigsen's book (Excellence was Expected) provided it in the 914 chapter. I, too, have been less than fond of the "teener" name people use to refer to the car. But, when I read that the factory called it the - Fourteener - it changed my perception completely. I knew instantly that that had to be the name.

This conversation has been very helpful. I sincerely appreciate, and consider, every comment. Maybe I will run a poll to determine a preference between print vs. digital pdf. The suggestion of interactive resources is really an excellent point. One realistic model could call for a free pdf, or paid print magazine. The pdf idea is also attractive because of the ability to share it online. Ultimately, the size of the reader base almost always determines the success of a magazine. This niche is very small. I don't want to do anything to inadvertently make it smaller for the magazine because it can't be shared as easily as a digital copy.

I've been reading the civil war era newspapers that I bought my dad for Christmas, it's amazing to have something like that in your hands. I might have to start a new collection... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blink.gif)

Love the idea of a print format. Old school just like the cars. Besides, swatting the dog with an I-pad just isn't right.
