Porsche's 911 is a success story nearly unrivaled among its sports car peers. First offered for public consumption in 1965, it has been in non-stop production ever since. This alone speaks volumes about the 911's success and popularity. To its credit, however, Porsche has never allowed the 911 to rest on it laurels; the car simply gets better every year.
More power, better handling, quicker stopping, and greater comfort. Great as it is, the 911 still remains the perfect performance-tuner's companion. Regardless of vintage, any 911 can be made to perform better than its factory-stock brothers. Noted 911 expert Bruce Anderson has drawn on his 30-plus years of Porsche experience to create the ultimate 911 hop-up guide. The exhaustive text, accompanied by more than 650 illustrations covers:
