To bring sports cars into the world entails dangers and difficulties, unless they happen to be the scions of the big series. That can be entirely different as is most impressively illustrated by the history of the Porsche make. Not only has the Zuffenhausen company managed to fend off the embrace of mighty concerns or kept away even failure in the past but has also set out to massively engage in swaying the lot of a far bigger enterprise recently. The two main columns which the Porsche myth rests upon have undoubtedly been the 356 and 911 model ranges.
That this is so is an excellent reference for the product and the men behind it and, apart from that, is a triumph of persistent evolution—also in aesthetic terms. To report on and to pay homage to this and the Porsche cosmos in general is the main concern of this book.
