First volume in a series that will become the definitive reference to the Porsche 911, the world's favourite Porsche.
Covers design, the 901 prototype, the early 911s (including 912s) and the 2.2 litre cars. First shown as the 901 prototype at the 1963 Frankfurt Show, the 911 quickly built on the Porsche legend established by the 356 models. 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 first of a set of books which will chronicle in great depth the history of the evergreen 911, from the earliest design studies to the water-cooled cars of today.
