The Porsche is the quintessential sports car‚ sleek, sexy, and very fast. Its striking looks are matched by superb engineering and performance, making it one of the world's great automobiles. This book tells the story of Porsche, from its creation by Dr. Ferdinand Porsche and his son in 1948, through to the models of today. It also examines events that influenced the development of the company, such as the imprisonment of Dr. Ferdinand Porsche during World War II, the rise of the Volkswagen and the changing rules of national and international racing associations.
