Porsche Passion - 911 Heaven and Beyond

In a book of Porsche photography and engaging conversation, Lance Cole journeys through a personal passion for Porsche -one that many supercar enthusiasts share.
Herein light falls on sculpted metal and paint - shiny and less shiny.

Throwing off the conventions of Porsche purism, yet at the same time always respecting the origins of Porsche, and the status of the 911, this is a book that celebrates the engineering and the design language of Porsche amid its culture.
From an "oily-rag" 356 to old 911s and new 911s, with a brief alighting upon other cars of the Porsche clan, this is an eclectic collection of enthusiasts "moments" captured across a British Porsche landscape.

911 by Porsche

Voiture de sport par excellence, icône automobile, la 911 est bien plus qu'une simple voiture. Créée il y a plus de 50 ans, en 1963, aucune voiture au monde ne peut s'enorgueillir d'une telle longévité. Sportivité, excellence, design, la 911 accumule les superlatifs et ce n'est pas pour rien qu'elle est la voiture de sport la plus vendue au monde (32 000 modèles vendus en 2018 dans le monde, plus de 820 000 unités produites depuis 1963).
Ferry Porsche, fondateur de la marque Porsche, avait décrit mieux que quiconque les qualités de la 911 : " La 911 est la seule voiture au volant de laquelle on peut rentrer d'un safari en Afrique pour aller au Mans, puis se rendre au théâtre ou évoluer sur l'asphalte new-yorkais. "

Cet ouvrage est une déclaration d'amour des propriétaires de cette voiture mythique. Ils sont architecte, comédien, entrepreneur, producteur de musique, designer, coureur automobile, mécanicien, ou encore écrivaine ou médecin, tous ont un point commun : être propriétaire d'une Porsche 911.

Ce livre ravira aussi bien les fans de la marque, grâce aux anecdotes surprenantes de ces propriétaires venus des quatre coins du monde, que les passionnés d'automobiles qui découvriront la 911 avec un nouvel œil. L'ouvrage présente de façon chronologique les modèles les plus importants (route et compétition), de 1963 au tout dernier modèle avec des documents d'archives rares fournis par la marque Porsche.

Porsche 911: 50 Years

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.
Beyond telling the story of the cars, "Porsche 911: 50 years" also 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.

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.
