Courage Books, 1991. FIRST EDITION, first printing (numberline including "1") Oversized format. Excellent condition, original dust jacket in very good condition small closed tear. "Through the highly informed text and numerous superb full-color photographs, this book examines the complex history of Porsche cars. It covers prehistory with the Lohner-Porsche and Porsches designs for Daimler, Steyr, Auto-Union, and Volkswagen; the 365 that first bore the Porsche name; the 911, the 924/928/944 series of water-cooled, front-engine cars; and the seemingly endless stream of "pure racers", so-called even though with Porsche the distinction between road and race often seems irrelevant." As imagined, illustrated with spectacular photographs of all that is Porsche. Great gift or addition to any collection. 127 pages including index.
