Beautiful for the geek, difficult for the others,
This review is from: Porsche 911 Story: The Entire Development History (Hardcover)
If you are not really looking for a "911 story", but for a "911 development story", as the subtitle properly says, this book is probably what you are looking for.
The book is very complete from the technical point of view. I doubt that there might be on the market another book able to rival its level of technical depth.
Just do not buy it thinking that this is simply a "911 story" in the conventional meaning of the word, because it is not. Too technical and fragmented, it looks at times more like a collection of specialised monographies than an organic "history" of the car.
It is as if one would read several books, written in succession (which is, in a sense, the case).
The numerous and ponderous appendices also show that the theme is not dealt with in an organic way, and information is often scattered here and there.
These little remarks notwithstanding, the book will certainly satisfy those in need of a book with a high level of technical information about the 911.
