Since its introduction in 1998, the water-cooled Porsche 911 has earned a reputation as one of the world's greatest sports cars - equal to, if not better than, the legendary air-cooled 911 it replaced. The 911 is a true driver's car, and it offers its greatest driving rewards when properly maintained, tuned, and modified. One of the principal drawbacks to owning a Porsche is the relatively high cost of maintaining it.

Created with the weekend mechanic in mind, this highly illustrated Motorbooks Workshop title offers 101 step-by-step projects designed to help you maintain, modify, and improve your late-model 911. Focusing on the water-cooled 996 and 997 models, this book presents all the necessary knowledge, associated costs, and pitfalls to avoid when performing an expansive array of projects. And besides the savings, when you personally complete a job on your Porsche, you get the added satisfaction of having done it yourself.

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
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 yearsalso 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.

"Porsche: The Classic Era" offers something for all Stuttgart enthusiasts and those interested in automotive history.
There are few automobiles in the world as iconic as Porsche's air-cooled sports cars. For nearly 50 years Porsche's rear-engine wonders set the benchmark for production sports cars and dominated the world's race courses. From the first Gmund coupe, to the 356 to the timeless 911, this richly illustrated volume tells the full story of Germany's fabled air-cooled sports cars.
Automotive writer and photographer Dennis Adler begins the books with the early career of Ferdiand Porsche, detailing the influences and events that set him on the path of automotive-engineering greatness including key stints with Mercedes-Benz, Auto Union, and Volkswagen. From there he details Porsche's WWII work before moving into the postwar era and the establishment of Porsche as a unique automotive brand.

Описание: This volume is a unique contemporary work that portrays the development of individual Porsche models by means of the technical illustrations produced by Technical Art for the Stuttgart sports car manufacturer. In these elaborate illustrations, the progressive technology and pioneering innovation for which Porsche automobiles are renowned are literally transparent – an extraordinary visual experience. The story of these graphic illustrations also reflects the exciting technical developments in this field. Today electronic data processing has conquered almost all areas of everyday life. But in 1975 technical illustrations were still made by working from photographs, using brushes and paint applied by hand. This work documents the development of the graphic rendering of these elaborate illustrations over the years since 1975, from the traditional approach of brushes and paint to digital conversion using Quantel Paintbox, and then the entrance into the world of 3-D with Silicon Graphics work stations.
