LIMITED EDITION 2018 “Porsche 911 – Air-Cooled Years 1974 – 1989“

Strictly limited print run of 2018 copies worldwide:
After the great success of his Porsche 911 Turbo book entitled “Aircooled years 1975-1998”, Andreas Gabriel has in recent years exhaustively investigated the Classic 911 G model. This Porsche 911 became a real evergreen and kept its place in the model range for all of sixteen years. A feat not achieved by any subsequent generation of the ‘Eleven. The G model has always been – and still remains – one of the most popular classic Porsches, combining as it does sophisticated and reliable technology with unbeatable driving pleasure. Andreas Gabriel had the opportunity to talk to the developers of this air-cooled classic and even met the man who campaigned to crucial effect for the survival of the ‘Eleven at the end of 1970s, when it w

In addition to detailed purchase advice and price trends in recent years, it deals exhaustively with all six limited editions, some of which are completely unknown even to connoisseurs. For this book project, Porsche once again provided access to its historical archive, which is why the reader can now see, among other things, previously unpublished photographs of Helmuth Bott taken during the testing phase of the G model in Algeria. Internationally recognised Porsche expert Tobias Kindermann has also compiled an exclusive technology and statistical section for all Porsche 911 models from model years 1974 – 1989.

Porsche 912 : 50 years

9783667103062 Porsche 912 50 years

When the Porsche 912 was introduced in the spring of 1965, some members of the staff were not quite happy with the new model, for it still had the four-cylinder engine of the 356 that was no longer in production, while the 911 already had the new six-cylinder, and had become a legend. However, the 911 was so expensive that many Porsche devotees in Germany could not, or did not want to, afford to buy it. For this reason, Porsche quickly needed a new, less expensive model so the 912 came into being, and from 1966 to 1969 about 32,000 vehicles were built.

Apart from the Porsche 912 Coupé (1965 to 1969) this book also presents the Porsche 912 Targa (1966 to 1969). Less well-known, but all the more intriguing, is the story of the Porsche 912E, built in 1976 just for the US market, and of which only 2099 specimens exist.

ISBN 9783928540797One year on from Porsche’s return to top level sports car racing, and in front of more than 200,000 spectators, the brand celebrated its 17th overall win at the Le Mans 24 hours. The close-knit team celebrated as one as the Porsche 919 Hybrid, driven by Nico Hülkenberg, Earl Bamber and Nick Tandy crossed the finish line.

Mark Webber, Brendon Hartley and Timo Bernhard completed the 1-2 for Porsche by finishing second overall. In the GT-Pro class, one of the two works-entered 911s secured fifth place while in the GT-Am category, Hollywood star Patrick Dempsey finished second in class after a performance worthy of a film script. In words and images, this book documents the entire story of the Porsche teams during the 83rdrunning of the Le Mans 24 Hours, from the presentation of the cars to the final result, via the test day, scrutineering, the practice sessions and the drivers’ parade and also, of course, all the action from the great race.ISBN 9783928540797 Bookstore

Porsche Turbo: The Inside Story of Stuttgart’s Turbocharged Road and Race Cars

Schermafbeelding 2015-11-20 om 22.42.51Porsche made history when it brought turbocharging to the racing world in the form of the 917. When strict regulations regarding engine displacement took away the option of bigger engines, manufacturers turned to forced induction. In its wildest trim, the original 12-cylinder turbocharged Porsche racing engine yielded as much as 1,400 horsepower! Porsche’s official philosophy was that racing cars must have a connection to street cars, so it was preordained that Porsche would eventually produce a turbocharged version of its air-cooled flat-six cylinder engine.

The resulting 930 Turbo appeared in the spring of 1975 in Europe. Acceleration from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour took a scant 5.5 seconds, and its top speed was 155 miles per hour. The Turbo’s distinctive rear wing let the world know that this was something very special. It was nothing less than the rebirth of the high-performance automobile. At a time when the big-block engines in America’s so-called “muscle cars” were putting out 180 horsepower and the engines in exotic supercars weren’t much more ambitious, the lightweight Porsche was a genuine rocket.

Porsche sporterfolge

Titled ‘SportErfolge’, this magnificent photo-essay covers a part of the rich racing and rallying history of the Porsches from as early as 1951 when the Austrian-built Gmünd 356 challenged the early post-war racing scene. From there it goes all the way up to 1963 when the rare flat-eights showed great potential at the Targa Florio, Nürburgring and Le Mans. In between are many events, national and international, that slowly but surely put Porsche on pole position among the world’s finest competition cars.

Race meetings are laid out individually and chronologically, starting with the 1951 Coupe du Salon at Montlhéry and ending with the 1963 Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race, via Sestriere, Liège-Rome-Liège, Carrera Panamericana Mexico, Pebble Beach, numerous Swiss hill-climbs and more, much more. There are some truly amazing shots – Hans Herrmann in the 1954 Carrera Mexico class winning 550, full colour Mille Miglia and Bob Donner gunning his RS61 up Pikes Peak are just some examples. Paddock studies feature strongly, and Tony has retained a typical feel for the 1950s culture. Continue reading “Porsche sporterfolge”

Porsche 911 the 50th anniversary edition

9783832797034The introduction of the Porsche 901 in 1963 marked a milestone in automotive history. Although the name later had to be changed because Peugeot had patented having a 0 in the middle of car model numbers, the 911 didn’t let anything stand in the way of its becoming an iconic sports car. This success story spans all the way from the 901 and the Carrera RS 2.7 (which with its characteristic rear spoiler—the so-called “ducktail”— was the fastest production car of its time) right up to the current generation of the 991. For the 50th birthday of the populous 911 family, the famous automotive photographer René Staud, whose The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Book has also been published by teNeues, showcases the most important models—all in his typically radiant and distinctive style.
