There's something for every Porsche enthusiast in Porsche 70 Years, whether rear-engine 911 loyalist, race fan, or follower of contemporary vehicles. Fasten your seatbelt and hit the gas.

Porsche is one of the most important and iconic automotive manufacturers in history. From its first 356 to today's technical tour de force, the 918, Porsche has advanced from strength to strength for nearly seven decades.

In Porsche 70 Years: There is No Substitute, author Randy Leffingwell offers a richly illustrated and detailed book that captures the full story of one of the world's leading automotive companies. Beautiful, contemporary photos and rare historical images accompany in-depth analyses of milestone cars and events.

Created with Porsche's cooperation, the book brings to light the engineering anddesign stories behind Stuttgart's most famous cars--such as the 356, 904, 917, 911, 928, 935, 956 and others--as well as its key players. Comprising the most comprehensive overview of the company's entire history, Porsche 70 Years truly has no substitute.

Review quote

"The informative text for each model recounted is somewhat brief and doesn't get too bogged down in the minutiae, while the cars themselves are pictured in all their splendor with rarely seen archival images and contemporary photography by Michael Furman...[A] worthy purchase for any Porsche enthusiast's bookshelf." - Porsche Club of America
