Lavish Coffee-Table Book Celebrates the Porsche 911

By Paul Joseph

German luxury sports carmakers have created a lavish coffee table book that celebrates its iconic model, the Porsche 911.

From the earliest design studies, to the last of the air-cooled line, every model and iteration of this iconic car is covered, revealing the continuous process of evolution and the build quality that has kept the 911 fresh for over 50 years.

Limited edition cars, rare prototypes, and one-off specials are included, and all models are illustrated with over a thousand contemporary photos and illustrations, plus reproductions of advertising materials and brochures.

With the full co-operation of Porsche, the author assembled and presented an extensive history of the model that includes full year-by-year coverage of production models, listings of colour and trim options, descriptions of limited edition cars, Porsche’s racing efforts in the arena of motor sports, plus three highly-detailed appendices.

The birth, rise, and eventual replacement of the 911 is catalogued in unprecedented detail, revealing how the company fought through sometimes difficult times, political turmoil and changing fashions to keep the 911 current and at the top of its game through every decade. The book also comes presented in a luxurious slip case

Founded by Ferdinand Porsche in Stuttgart, Germany in 1931, Porsche has grown to become one of the world’s most renowned luxury sports car manufacturers.
