When the Porsche 912 was introduced in the spring of 1965, some members of the staff were not quite happy with the new model, for it still had the four-cylinder engine of the 356 that was no longer in production, while the 911 already had the new six-cylinder, and had become a legend. However, the 911 was so expensive that many Porsche devotees in Germany could not, or did not want to, afford to buy it. For this reason, Porsche quickly needed a new, less expensive model so the 912 came into being, and from 1966 to 1969 about 32,000 vehicles were built. Apart from the Porsche 912 Coupe (1965 to 1969) this book also presents the Porsche 912 Targa (1966 to 1969). Less well-known, but all the more intriguing, is the story of the Porsche 912E, built in 1976 just for the US market, and of which only 2099 specimens exist."

Der Porsche 911 ist ein einzigartiges Symbol für die grenzenlose Sehnsucht nach absoluter Überschreitung. Ulf Poschardt umkreist den 911er als Phänomen der Zeit-, Kultur-, Technik- und Designgeschichte und bekennt seine Liebe zur persönlichen Autonomie auf vier Rädern. Jerry Seinfeld fährt ihn, Boris Johnson bewundert ihn, Volker Schlöndorff hasst ihn und Andreas Baader hat ihn sogar gestohlen. Der Porsche 911 bewegt die Welt. In Deutschland von manchen als Bonzenschale verachtet, gilt er in den USA als Lieblingsauto des -linksliberalen Intellektuellen. Der 911er wurde nicht nur von einer der faszinierendsten und umstrittensten Unternehmerfamilien erfunden, er verfügt auch über eine unvergleichliche technische Genese. Zudem ist er ein glänzendes Beispiel einer Designtradition, die in »form follows function« kein modisches Dogma sieht, sondern Ausdruck schwäbischen Pragmatismus war. Ulf Poschardt legt den Porschefahrer auf die Couch und stellt fest, dass ein bisschen Narzissmus schon okay ist. In diesem Sinne: Nicht alle können und müssen Porsche fahren, aber das »Lebensgefühl 911er« als Geste der Freiheit und des Mutes, alles zu geben, ist für jeden da.

The Porsche 959 is regarded as one of the most exceptional vehicles in automotive historyIt won the murderous Paris-Dakar rally, prevailed in Le Mans as the first all-wheel drive racer against racers with more PS and delighted its customers with road performances never seen beforeA fascinating boxed set with three volumes on different topics: technical data, history, and a large-format illustrated book that shows the 959 genesis including all derivatives and new photos of the most beautiful specimenTo the present day, the Porsche 959 is regarded as one of the most exceptional vehicles in automotive history: a technical marvel with its all-wheel drive, a refined biturbo engine, 450 PS and a top speed of 315 km/h - still breathtaking 30 years after its first roll-out. The idea behind this tour de force was to build a Porsche that fitted the new Group B regulations just established in 1983: the Group B Porsche. The regulations demanded just 200 vehicles for the homologation, that is why Porsche was able to turn the technological knowledge of that time into a super Porsche equally suitable for the race track and for rallies - which was the intention of the new racing car series. Apart from the races, the homologation vehicles were also meant to go to private owners for the use in road traffic. The Porsche 959 excelled in all of the tasks. It won the murderous Paris-Dakar rally, prevailed in Le Mans as the first all-wheel drive racer against racers with more PS and delighted its customers with road performances never seen before. The surprising end of the Group B regulations, enforced by the motorsports authorities after deadly accidents at the World Rally Championship, ended the motorsports career of the 959 before it had really begun. But the about 300 vehicles that were built, still tell the story of a fascinating car that became a celebrated and precious icon over the last years. Jürgen Lewandowski witnessed the development of the Porsche 959 more than 30 years ago and describes the difficult birth of the super car including the three Paris-Dakar rallies and the Le Mans race. A fascinating boxed set with three volumes on different topics: technical data, history, and a large-format illustrated book that shows the 959 genesis including all derivatives and new photos of the most beautiful specimen. After 30 years, this comprehensive work presents even the minutest details, it comments on events in the past, and contemporary witnesses have their say - all in all it is a literary monument to the Porsche 959.

Die zweite Generation des wassergekühlten Porsche 911 wurde im Sommer 2004 der Öffentlichkeit präsentiert. Und keine 911-Generation zuvor war jemals auf so ungeteilte Begeisterung gestoßen: Den Designern war es gelungen, den 997 der Urform des 911 extrem anzunähern, wobei der Betrachter ihn aber gleichzeitig in seiner Gesamtwirkung als hochmodernen Sportwagen wahrnahm. Mit der Baureihe 997 hatte Porsche endgültig wieder zurück zu der klassischen 911-Linie gefunden - und das wirkte sich auch auf die Verkaufszahlen aus. Im Laufe seines Lebenszyklus stellte der bis Ende 2012 gebaute 997 aber nicht nur Verkaufsrekorde auf: Zeitweise wurden parallel nicht weniger als 24 verschiedene Modelle angeboten - von 325 bis zu 620 PS. Porsche-Enthusiast Grant Neal präsentiert in dieser akribisch recherchierten Typenmonografie alles Wissenswerte rund um einen der zukünftigen Klassiker aus Zuffenhausen. Eine abschließende ausführliche Kaufberatung unterstützt all jene, die sich mit der Anschaffung eines 997 beschäftigen, das für sie richtige Modell zu finden.
