Porsche is a world-renowned brand that is known best for producing highly sought-after sports cars, exotic cars and more recently for high-performance sport utility vehicles (SUVs) and high-tech luxury electric cars. Additionally, Porsche is a world-dominating sports car racing brand with factory-built-andbacked motorsport activities dating to the early 1950s, having won the 24 Hours of Le Mans outright more than any other carmaker, dominating sports car racing, endurance racing, and championship-level rallying around the world.

Enthusiasts at all levels generally recognize and can identify on sight Porsche’s most iconic and mainstay models, such as the original 356 models of the 1950s and early 1960s, the seminal 911 first shown in 1963 and still in production nearly seven decades later, and perhaps the mid-engine 914. Each of these model platforms contain many subsets of special-edition versions built to higher levels of style, performance, luxury, or rarity. These include a variety of anniversary editions, commemorating certain landmarks in the marque’s history.

Lumping all Porsches into the “if you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all” category is to miss the design, details, and performance of many great cars. These cars range from relatively straightforward color and trim combinations to limited-edition, high-performance machines, including several generations of modern 911-based Speedsters, Turbos, slant-nose Flachbaus, select RS and ClubSport models, special 356s, factory and independent concepts, and design studies. The unique work of low-volume production houses, such as Germany’s RUF, and high-end restoration and custom build shops, such as Singer Vehicle Design, Guntherwerks, and others, are also found here. This book contains a veritable Smorgasbord of interesting, rare, and unique special Porsches from around the world.

• While there have been plenty of books published about Porsche over the years, none have focused on the special editions.

• This book is filled with wonderful photography from the Porsche archives.

• Written by Porsche expert and enthusiast Matt Stone.

Get ready to embark on an exhilarating journey through the history of Camaro

When the first Corvette was introduced to the public through the traveling caravan known as Motorama, everyone knew there was something special about it. Each subsequent model continued to strengthen that position. But how do you upgrade America’s favorite sports car? Make it a special edition!

Special edition Corvettes are the tip of the spear when it comes to the American auto manufacturers’ special models. Luminous cars such as the 1967 L88 convertible, 1969 aluminum block ZL1, and 2015 Z06 #001 have all commanded a million dollars or more. Modern dealer-tuned cars from Lingenfelter, Callaway, and Hennessey have carried the tradition of making a great Corvette even better. Extremely low mileage on 1978 Pace Cars indicates that people have thought of these cars as investments for nearly 40 years.

Keith Cornett compiles a murderer’s row of special-edition Corvettes in this first-ever compilation on the subject. This book is an encyclopedia of information, as you will learn about some of the rarest Corvettes on the planet. It will serve as a guide if you’re looking to add one of these special machines to your collection. Everything you’ve ever wanted to learn about collectible Corvettes is in Corvette Special Editions.

• Corvettes are America’s Sports Car and have been produced for over 60 years

• More than 2 million Corvettes have been built, most of which are still on the road today

• Corvette special editions are considered the most special of an already special car. Never before have all been featured in a single illustrated volume
