Taking an in-depth look at Porsche's 997-series, this book builds on
Veloce's previous five volumes of Definitive History, to build a set
that records the entire history of the legendary 911 - one of the
world's most recognisable cars.
As with earlier titles, Brian Long examines in detail the road cars that
sold in all the world's major markets, as well as the numerous
competition cars that have represented the Stuttgart marque in racing
and rallying over the years.
Using contemporary photography and archive material to richly illustrate
each page, the background, concept, and birth of the 997 is revealed.
With detailed appendices giving year-by-year range details, engine
specifications and chassis numbers, and worldwide production figures,
this really is the definitive history of the 911.
Born in Coventry, once the heart of the British motor industry, Brian
Long is a professional writer with a passion for vintage and sporting
machinery. A trained mechanical engineer and Porsche 911 owner, he has
had strong links with the Porsche company for over a decade. Married to
Miho and with two children (Louis and Sophie-Mercedes), Brian now lives
just outside Tokyo. He has over 50 books published, including many works
on the Porsche marque.
