Porsche 911 : 50 Years
by Randy Leffingwell




Overview -
Best-selling author Randy Leffingwell celebrates a half-century of one of the world's premiere sports cars, focusing on the major themes that have defined Porsche's rear-engined wonder.

Porsche 911: 50 Years tells the whole story--design and development, racing and competition, engineering and technology, style and culture. All the iconic 911 models are included:
  • The original 901 prototype that set the standard
  • The legendary RS models that made the little Porsche a dominant force on the world's racetracks
  • The infamous Turbo, the car that kept the performance flame alight during the dark, dismal decade of the 1970s
  • The fabled 959, the model that redefined the term "sports car"
  • The 993, last of the original air-cooled models
  • The 996, 997, and 991, the liquid-cooled cars that brought the 911 into a new millennium
Beyond telling the story of the cars, Porsche 911: 50 yearsalso spotlights the people behind them Ferdinand "Butzi" Porsche, the son of legendary Porsche founder Ferdinand "Ferry" Porsche, who co-designed the instantly recognizable 911 shape; Peter W. Schutz, the Porsche CEO who saved the 911 from extinction; and Dr. Helmuth Bott, the engineering genius behind many of the groundbreaking technologies that have defined the 911, including fuel injection, turbocharging, and all-wheel-drive.

Leffingwell also tells the story of the 911 community--the clubs and culture that surround the car.

Together, all of these facets make Porsche 911: 50 Years the most essential book in any Porsche owner or fan's library.
