Today, one cannot escape the fact that the words Porsche and racing go hand in hand. This book follows Porsche's year-by-year progress in top flight racing and rallying, and looks in detail at the pure competition cars that brought the German marque such immense success on the tracks and worldwide acclaim. This particular volume starts with story of the pure racers of 1976 vintage, and takes the reader through a series of racing models, including the glorious 956 and 962, up to 2005 via contemporary photography and words from an acknowledged Porsche authority. An earlier volume covers the years up to 1975 inclusive. The book includes detailed year by year coverage of Porsche's top class racing and rallying exploits in words and over 600 excellent photos. This book is a must-have for all fans of the Porsche marque and motor sport.
