Porsche 911 Identification Guide - All Models since 1964

When is a Porsche 911 not a 911? When it's a Carrera, a GT2, GT3 or a Speedster. Or maybe when it's a 964, 993, 996 or 997? It can be highly confusing, especially when most mainstream 911s since 1984 have been badged "Carrera" and not actually "911".

The Porsche 911 Identification Guide is designed to clarify the situation. It documents clearly and simply the different models of Porsche 911 produced since 1964 with detailed descriptions, notes on specification changes and clear pointers on how to recognise each variant.
The author also highlights landmark models that represented a leap forward.

Illustrated with some 250 colour and black and white photos drawn from Porsche's own archives and other sources, this book, written by a well-know Porsche journalist, is a must-have for potential 911 buyers, for enthusiasts of this legendary sports car and for owners seeking to place their car in the 911's evolutionary line.
