From the company's earliest days in the 1930s, the book gives a brief history of the glorious Auto-Union Grand Prix cars designed by Prof Porsche before detailing the miseries and triumphs of the company in the aftermath of war. Throughout the late 1940s and early 1950s Porsche struggled to survive, but unshakeable faith in the design of the 356 led to success in both circuit racing and rallying. The majority of rallying successes during the 1950s were largely achieved by privateers, without help from the factory. Ferry Porsche in particular considered it more important to build racing cars for circuit events, while wealthy enthusiasts clearly enjoyed proving the true versatility of these VW-derived cars by using them in international rallying. With the advent of the 911 in 1964, Porsche had produced a car with the potential to win sporting events at all levels, but it took until 1967 for this to be demonstrated. With its superior traction on slippery surfaces the 911 would go on to win the Monte Carlo Rally, and other significant international events, many times, while also taking class honours in the Targa Florio, Le Mans 24 Hours and other great classics. In the 1970s, when it seemed that more sophisticated rivals would bury the 911's rallying career forever, the car made several comebacks, even winning the Paris-Dakar Raid in the 1980s. The 911's sporting record speaks for itself, and demonstrates that the car designed by Butzi Porsche – work began on the project as early as 1959 – is the finest and most versatile of all sports cars. Meredith's book is written with affection, appreciation and authority – and criticism where it is due – and will make an invaluable addition to any rallying or Porsche enthusiast's library.

Forty years after its 1969 debut, racing fans still regard the Porsche 917 with awe as one the greatest sports cars ever built. In PORSCHE 917 X 17: THE CARS AND DRIVERS IN STUDIO, renowned automotive photographer and director Jeff Zwart follows up his award-winning book, 'Porsche Rennsport', with exquisitely rendered images of 17 of the most beautiful and historic 917s. Highlights include the first Porsche to win Le Mans overall, the 917K shared by Richard Attwood and Hans Hermann; the Gulf-Wyer 917K shared by Pedro Rodriguez and Jackie Oliver in 1971; and the notorious "Pink Pig" - a 917/20 that was raced just once by Willi Kauhsen in 1971. Using dramatic angles and controlled lighting, Zwart provides a fresh perspective on these iconic cars. He reveals each 917's distinctive characteristics and patina, and shows artful technical details from inside the cockpit, chassis, and engine compartments. These photographs are accompanied by engaging portraits and vivid recollections from 15 Porsche drivers - including Derek Bell, Vic Elford, Brian Redman, and Hurley Haywood - who look back on the anticipation, fear, and excitement they felt driving the 917. With its heavy matte art paper, spot varnish, metallic silver ink, and cloth-covered slipcase, the book's high-quality production is as lavish as Zwart's photography. Of all the recently published 917 books this one stands alone in offering Porschephiles an all-new take on the cars and drivers.

This book documents in lavish detail the unique styling, engineering, and performance of Porsche’s new mid-engine coupe - the Porsche Cayman. Produced in cooperation with Porsche AG, the book includes behind-the-scenes design blueprints, studio sketches and cutaway drawings, spec information, specially commissioned photography including testing and development, and historical comparisons with the 904 racing car. Beautiful, commissioned photography and an engaging text tells the Cayman story in all its splendor—performance, technical features, handling, lightweight construction, intelligent use of space—at once a true Porsche and a unique model in its own right in the family of legendary sports cars. Leading German automotive photographers and journalists worked with Porsche, and the book is printed using a 7-color process and varnished pages for a luxurious look and feel (most illustrated books use a 4-color process and lesser glossy pages). Porsche Cayman is the ultimate collectible for any owner of the new car, and an essential contribution to any Porsche enthusiast's library.
