Excellence Magazine also published a series of ongoing articles entitled “Porsche Market Report”. This series reflects on the market value of various Porsche models.
Additionally, Anderson was part of the Advisory Board of N.A.D.A. Exotic, Collectible and Special Interest Cars. Many articles that Anderson had written dealt not only with Porsche technical information, but on all aspects of interest to Porsche enthusiasts including coverage of events such as the annual Porsche Parade, Speedsterfest, La Carrera Panamericana, Daytona and Le Mans races.
