In tracing 35 years of Porsche history, this stunningly-designed, large format work explores the models, the technology and the company history; investigates the origins of the awesome Carrera RS 2.7; takes a swift peek at the marque’s considerable racing pedigree and assesses the impact competition success had on the 911’s design and development.
The book is designed as a dip-in dip-out book, so you can read just sections or indeed the whole book, from cover to cover. Its 180 pages are crammed with hundreds of rare and unseen images and documents, original road test documents, prototypes and styling exercises. Many of these are from the Porsche Archive as well as material from the USA, Europe, UK, South Africa and even Paraguay!
The 911 Scrapbook also looks at how the Porsche 911 combined technological innovation with design integrity, and examines many key components – from wheels, to duck-tails and even mirrors! Included are competition successes from Sebring to Le Mans and Mexico, how the 911 was marketed and sold, the role of the Porsche family and other key figures in the 911’s history.
