In Porsche 911: 50 Years, bestselling author Randy Leffingwell celebrates a half-century of one of the world's premiere sports cars, focusing on the major themes that have defined Porsche's rear-engined wonder. Randy tells the whole story--design and development, racing and competition, engineering and technology, style and culture. All the iconic 911 models are included: the original 901 prototype that set the standard; the legendary RS models that made the little Porsche a dominant force on the world's racetracks; the infamous Turbo, the car that kept the performance flame alight during the dark, dismal decade of the 1970s; the fabled 959, the model that redefined the term "sports car"; the 993, last of the original air-cooled models; and the 996, 997, and 991, the liquid-cooled cars that brought the 911 into a new millennium. Beyond telling the story of the cars, Porsche 911: 50 years also spotlights the people behind them: Ferdinand "Butzi" Porsche, the son of legendary Porsche founder Ferdinand "Ferry" Porsche, who co-designed the instantly recognizable 911 shape; Peter W. Schutz, the Porsche CEO who saved the 911 from extinction; and Dr. Helmuth Bott, the engineering genius behind many of the groundbreaking technologies that have defined the 911, including fuel injection, turbocharging, and all-wheel-drive. Leffingwell also tells the story of the 911 community--the clubs and culture that surround the car. Together, all of these facets make Porsche 911: 50 Years the most essential book in any Porsche owner or fan's library.


"Porsche 911: 50 Years is above all a celebration of a peculiarly individual car which in a rational world would never have existed and yet survived and prospered through a half century, evolving and adapting but never losing its highly distinct character. No other brand has ever managed this and Leffingwell’s achievement is the focus he brings to this compelling story. Some of the face-to-face discussions the author was able to hold with current Porsche movers and shakers would have been impossible only a few years ago and this greater openness has extended to the company’s image collection: the book is illustrated by a superb selection of previously unseen Archive photography. Leffingwell has created a splendid monument to the Porsche 911, which more than just the definitive sports car, has defied conformist pressures to become a symbol of endeavour and excellence." - Total911.com

5つ星のうち HASH(0x91d4cba0) Review from Porsche Club Newsletter 2014/1/14
投稿者 PilotJimL - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
A newly released book is taking a prominent position on my Porsche Book Shelf. I have plenty of coffee table books that are good for lots of pretty pictures, but this one is between them and my hard core references such as Karl Ludvigsen’s. There are two areas where it excels, the use of quotes from Porsche people at and below the department heads, and the other is why each generation of the 911 was changed, especially the 991 generation.
The author, Randy Leffingwell, has written dozens of books on transportation, including photographic duties. Porsche 911: 50 Years is 256 pages with 300 photos, including many photos and drawings from Porsche’s archives. It is well worth it.
It starts with the 356 era, and Erwin Komenda’s shop’s design for variations and replacements. Randy had access to interviews, new and old, with the less familiar names such as Eugen Kolb, Gerhard Schröder, and Heinrich Klie. You get a much better feeling of how executives such as Ferry and Komenda got along. You also discovered how these lesser known names should be credited with some well-known designs or ideas.
This kind of depth continues through each generation of the 911. You get a better understanding of how Porsche kept getting smarter with their designs. From a 901 design with no thoughts of a convertible, and very little thought of racing it, to designing the 991 for 22 models and racing versions before it hit the auto shows. I was surprised to learn they wanted to water cool the 993, but there was too much to do in little time.
The 911 street generations are followed by a racing chapter. It starts with the 911 hill-climbers, and proceeds through 935s, 959s, and GT series.
The book ends with a statement from Peter Schutz. We praise him for entering Helmuth Bott’s office and using an indelible marker, started from the 911’s expiration date to extend the line around the room to the opposite wall. Schutz said in a 2004 interview “Porsche is in the business of selling memberships in a dream.” Porschephiles should read this one.

5つ星のうち HASH(0x91d4c624) Nice non technical read on the history of the 911 2013/11/13
投稿者 Blaine - (Amazon.com)

This is a nice volume telling the story of the development and evolution of the Porsche 911. This is a light read with quality photos. It is not a model year by model year 911 book and is light on the technical details. Even though there are many books on the subject, this one has new interviews and technical drawings that I have not seen in other books.

5つ星のうち HASH(0x91d4f1d4) Great 911 overview 2014/1/18

Most Porschephiles (like me), as well as fans of other marques, are familiar with the literary works of noted author & photographer Randy Leffingwell. In this new book he has now done for the Porsche 911 what he did for the Corvette a few years ago; namely chronicle the history of one of the icons of sports car history in an overview with words and his wonderful photographic skills. I have added this new work to my collection of noteworthy Porsche books and if you love and admire the 911 and it's heritage (and who doesn't), this special offering from Motorbooks is a MUST HAVE!

5つ星のうち HASH(0x91d4ccf0) Gift to boyfriend, he likes it! 2014/12/30

I was searching for a Porsche mug for my boyfriend and ended up buying this book for about the same price as the mug! I chose this book because it had a good balance of literature and photos. I'm not a car fanatic but my boyfriend is, and he knows a lot about the 901/911. He was pleased because there is enough information in the book to refresh his interest. And surprisingly, he has the same fifty year edition for the Corvette. Both are a good start to his small collection of sports car coffee table books. While the book doesn't go into meticulous details about the engine development and specs for every year, it is enough detail to surprise even some long-time enthusiasts.

5つ星のうち HASH(0x91d0cfa8) Entertaining but not the definitive account 2013/11/28
投稿者 NattyBoston - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
Decent history of the 911 but the book is not very well written. A lot of filler, not a lot of technical information and very little about each model (Carerra 3.2 v 964 v 993 etc.), the improvements it made over the last, problems associated with each etc. It's a fairly enjoyable read, but it's not the definitive Porsche 911 overview
