Description - Porsche by Gui Bernardes

In Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen, August 1939, the 60K10 project, under the supervision of one Professor Ferdinand Porsche, builds a car in anticipation of a race, Berlin to Rome, that will never take place. With this model, the idea for a light and aerodynamic car, with a small engine but remarkable performance was born. Nine years later this idea bore fruit and the company released their first automobile, the 356, created by Ferdinand's son, Ferry Porsche, which would launch the company into automotive history. Porsche - Cars with Soul tells the story of Porsche, from the unique perspective of the cars themselves, through the most significant events and races of the marque's celebrated history. It covers exhilarating accounts of races in which Porsche cars competed, from 1951 to 2015 and it tracks the development of Porsche models from the first model 356, to the defining model 911, and beyond. Beautifully illustrtated with rarely seen full-colour and vintage photographs from the Porsche archives. AUTHOR: Gui Bernardes is a mechanical engineer who has been passionate about cars since childhood. This soon developed into a keen interest in Porsche and Porsche cars, in particular their participation in motor racing at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. His dream of owning and driving a Porsche was finally realised when he was 55 years old. Since then his passion has only increased, and he has become more and more involved in Porsche events, through the Porsche Club Portugal and Porsche Club 924/9449968 France. Porsche - Cars with Soul is his first book for Crowood. 80 b/w photographs, 120 colour
