Porsche racing cars: a History of Factory Competition (signed by author)

£44.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

192 pp. Contents crisp, clean and tightly bound. Hardback good (approaching very good) with DJ (good/fair). Cover has minor fraying to spine top and base, and edges, plus bumping to corners. Dust jacket scuffed, slightly soiled, minor open tears, (longest being 7mm). Unclipped ($39.95US, £24.99UK). Fully illustrated (b&w and col.) Personal dedication by author on free end paper to John Simons, a leading model car maker. The end papers, narrative, photos (b&w and col.) remain vibrant throughout with no annotations, marks or tears noted.

For half a century, Porsche automobiles have been favourites of race fans and drivers in endurance events, rallies, hill climbs, Trans Am, Can-Am, and GT racing. This photohistory chronicles more than 100 racing Porsches that have been campaigned at circuits the world over, including Le Mans, Daytona, Sebring, Spa, Nurburgring, and Leguna Seca, to name a few. In addition to color photography of the cars today and archival race images depicting the cars and top drivers from the annals of motorsport, the author presents the histories of such legendary Porsches as the 550 Spyder, a customer version of which gained notoriety as the car in which James Dean died; the open-wheel 718/2 with which Porsche unsuccessfully contested Formula 1 in 1959 and 1960; the 904 GTS that dominated European circuits in 1964 and 1965; the 917s which in 1972 and 1973 halted McLaren's Can-Am cakewalk; the 1976 Martini-liveried 935; the pair of Rothman-sponsored 959s that easily swept Paris-Dakar in 1986; and today's successful 911 GT cars.
