On June 8th, 1948, a new chapter of automobile history began. It was on this day that the first Porsche prototype, with the identification number 356-001, received the official approval for road service. A dream had come true for Ferry Porsche and his inv

This DVD is part of the German based film series "Faszination," that will, I presume, bring out further DVDs in addition to the three or four now available. The viewer has the choice of either English or German versions. The DVD structure weaves various Porsche model histories around and within the brutal Transsyberia rally. Thus the tale goes from the 1948 356 Series up to the recently released genuine four-seater the Panamera. The editing is free from the choppy mode favored by lazy and narcissistic editors looking for an effect. Each model is allowed to show its potencies both internally and vis-a-vis other Porsche models. There is some technical information but purists might want more. While the 911 model, as per usual, gets pride of place, the front and mid-engine Porsches are also allowed a serious cameo appearance--including the 914/6 mid-engine, the 928 (my favorite of the front engines), and the 944--culminating in the mid-engined Boxster S and the Cayman. The envelop is pushed with the track test of the GT 3 verses the 911 Turbo. The test driver ranked the two for racing prowess but I will let the DVD fill in the details.
I have five other Porsche DVDs and I would put this high on the list. I first caught the Porsche bug when I was around 14, due to seeing a red 356 in all of its glory. Currently I own a 2001 911/996 Carrera Four Coupe in lapis blue. My earlier Porsche had two wheel drive, which convinced me never to get less than all-wheel drive from then on. Those of you who participate in Porsche Club DE know that you are never properly a Porsche owner until you have managed intense oversteer on a fast track--I am thinking of a particular hairpin on the Pocono Raceway!

My husband lives eats and breathes Porsche. I simply admire the engineering, history, quality and driving them :) We both really enjoyed the rare footage this DVD had to offer. A very nice treat!

If you are real Porsche fan you will be very disappointed. Honestly, I think Porsche history is too big and too great to try to fit it in one hour. And in this case, the documentary goes trough most of the models too quickly and they just mention them without a good description. They start with the basic history of the 356, then move to the 911 (where they just mention the different models). They make a basic and obvious comparison between the GT3 and the Turbo, There's a chapter of the not very successful models and the new models (cayman, cayenne, etc) I Got really bored.
There is almost no technical information or basic information of what made each model so great.
If you want to learn about Porsche history buy a good book ("Porsche" by Rainer W. Schlegelmilch & Hartmut Lehbrink is a great example) or get the "Victory by Design: Porsche" DVD which is an amazing documentary about Porsche's racing cars.
So, If you don't know a thing about Porsche may be you will like this video. If you are a fan you won't.

This video was a bit disappointing like several other German-produced Porsche documentaries I have seen. The video footage is good but it is assembled in a confusing way and, let's face it, they can't pick decent background music to save their lives.
