Description

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.

The author

Born in Coventry, the heart of the British motor industry, Brian Long comes from a family with a proud heritage in the automotive and aviation fields. He trained as a mechanical engineer, and worked for a time at his father's garage. Brian became heavily involved in the classic car scene at 19, and says he turned to writing by accident. He has a long association with several major car manufacturers, is a member of the Society of Automotive Historians, and a member of the Guild of Motoring Writers. He now writes full-time and, since 1990, when his first book was released, he has had more than 80 titles published. Brian currently lives with his family in Chiba, in Japan, where they enjoy life with their Dobermann and Thoroughbred racehorse.
