Title: Porsche 918 Spyder

This trilogy on the Porsche 918 Spyder is like the car itself - passionate, focused, spectacular. The total of three motors in this super sports car - which is still the only production vehicle to have driven the Nürburgring Nordschleife in less than seven minutes - represent a whole new dimension of driving. Similarly, the three corresponding books on this high-tech vehicle deliver a whole new reading experience. There is the 'picture book' filled with opulent images from all the development phases of the 918 Spyder; the 'story book' that tells the thrilling tale of this car, which marks one of the decisive turning points in Porsche history; and, finally, there is the 'fact book' with all the relevant facts and figures on the 918 Spyder.

Title: Porsche: A History of Excellence


No other sports car has had a run like Porsche’s, on the street or on the world’s racetracks. This richly illustrated volume tells the story of that fabled marque.

His pictures, in-depth analyses of each car and its context, and interviews with key personnel comprise a complete, compelling, and often revealing history of the world’s premier name in sports cars.

Title: Porsche 911: 50 Years

In Porsche 911: 50 Years, bestselling 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. Randy tells the whole story--design and development, racing and competition, engineering and technology, style and culture. 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; and the 996, 997, and 991, the liquid-cooled cars that brought the 911 into a new millennium. 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. Together, all of these facets make Porsche 911: 50 Years the most essential book in any Porsche owner or fan's library.
