This is one of the best books about classic Porsche 911s available. It provides detailed information and pictures of the specs (incl. interior & exterior trim, engine, available colors, option-lists and many more) of all 911 series. You want to know, which model exactly you are looking at, next time you see a classic 911? Read this book and you'll know.

Format: Hardcover
I really enjoy this book and come back to it for an enjoyable evening read. The book is organized by engine size (and separate chapter for Turbos of all years). The color photos are great. Published in England (printed in Hong Kong) with many photos of rh drive as well as lh drive cars. Does not include as many cosmetic details/differences as Mark Haab's book, but the well-written text covers the major functional changes and then a summary at the end of each chapters lists options, colors, chassis number ids, and the production data for each year and model.

Format: Hardcover
This book presents a good overview (facts, models,
pictures) of the Porsche 911 since its creation
until mid 90's. It does include some vehicle
numbers and performance data. But it is not a
technical manual. I think its a good start
from potential 911 restorers, to get acquainted
with the 911.

Format: Hardcover
The book offers nice information year by year, chassis numbers, colors, gearbox numbers, ratios, engine numbers and overall good technical info, but is generally basic. It will offer nice entry into 911 world, but don't expect to learn everything. Choose what You want instead, search and learn about model you prefer somewhre else, and this book will make it easier to say: "this model is for me, and this is what I can expect from it". So, it's usable and nice thing to have on your bookshelf.

It doesn't say too much details. For example, it says that 911's from 65' have wooden steering wheel's, but it doesn't say what kind of wood it was made of (sorry if I haven't find that:). But at least You know which car should have wood inside.

When you see what you want, search deeper somewhere else. 911's half of century is too much to describe in any book. Search else too, but it's nice to start with Peter Morgan's guide and I can say this: Great book for 911 starters like me.
