In Porsche 911: 50 Years, best-selling author Randy Leffingwell celebrates a half-century of one of the world's premier sports cars. Through beautiful photography sourced from Porsche's own historic archive and lucid storytelling, he relates the entire history of the rear-engined wonder: design and development, racing and competition, engineering and technology, style and culture. Covering every iconic 911 model through the ages - including the original 901 prototype, the famous Turbo, and the fabled 959 - Leffingwell also highlights the men behind the legend, from Butzi and Ferry Porsche to Peter W. Schutz and Dr. Helmuth Bott. Finally, this book taps into the 911 community, comprising the devoted clubs and enduring culture that will continue to surround the car long into the future. The stories and images alone make Porsche 911: 50 Years the essential book in any Porsche enthusiast's library. This limited-edition version has been carefully crafted with the dedicated Porsche 911 fan in mind. A specially designed presentation box ensures the pristine condition of the book for years to come. We have also included a hand-picked gallery of gorgeous 911 art prints, exclusive to the owner of this edition and perfect for framing and displaying. Lastly, by limiting the release to only 600 copies, we guarantee that the only thing rarer than your special edition of Porsche 911: 50 Years is that elusive all-wheel-drive 959.
