Volume four in a series that will become the definitive reference to the Porsche 911, the world's favourite Porsche.
This volume continues the story of the 3.2 litre Carrera series, and goes on to cover the 959 production car and the last of the air-cooled 911s. A process of continuous evolution has kept the 911 fresh for nearly 40 years, while impeccable build quality has ensured that most of even the very earliest cars have survived as desirable and usable classics. This is the fourth volume of a set of books which will chronicle in definitive depth the history of the evergreen 911, from the earliest design studies to the water-cooled cars of today.
Review from 750 Bulletin, January 2005

This is volume four in the series that will become the definitive reference to the 911 – the model that is arguably the best constructed of all super cars available in the last fifteen years when Porsche went over to building galvanised bodies with much improved build quality. This volume continues the story of the 3.2-litre Carrera series, going on to cover the 959 production car and the holy grail of 911s, the last of the air-cooled cars, the 993.
A mechanical engineer, born in Coventry, the author has published more than twenty books, Porsche supporting this series of books, supplying almost all of the images from their official archive, over 200 in this volume alone. However, readers really should expect to see at least some right-hand drive cars in a British 911 book, a model that has been imported to the UK for over 40 years now. One photo did catch the eye, that of Ferry Porsche, pictured alongside the one millionth 911, a 993, one of several supplied to the German police force! If you can't beat them, join them... very hard to beat, the 911. Recommended.
