The Porsche 911 is probably the most famous sports car in the world. It is certainly one of the toughest and most durable - a veteran of more than twenty-six years of production, in which over quarter of a million examples have been produced in a number of different versions. Never before has a car consistently looked so good, sounded so good and been able to go so hard for so long. The Porsche 911 has become a legend in its own lifetime.
In this comprehensive new study of the 911, master road-tester David Vivian brings all his expertise to bear in assessing why the car has become one of the all-time greats.
From the conceptual thinking of Ferdinand Porsche to the definitive statement of the Carrera 2, the book tells the story of the 911 in a straightforward, readable style. Thorough technical analyses, individual model profiles, road test details and driving impressions are all included in abundance, together with invaluable information on buying and maintaining a second-hand 911.
The book is profusely illustrated with specially-commissioned colour and black and white photography, and there are numerous technical drawings, charts, tables and feature panels, containing much previously unpublished material.
This is the complete story of the Porsche 911, a book which truly defines the unique character of this motoring legend, from a professional who has known and respected the car - in all its forms - for many years.
