After his last book Escapes, Stefan Bogner returns to the Alps again with this illustrated book. This time not only did he photograph particular routes, but he looked for the ideal tour through the Alps: 3 countries, 14 passes - the perfect little escape for 4 days. Different from Bogner's photographs in Escapes or Curves, where Bogner just presents dreamlike empty streets, Porsche Drive focuses on the journey in Porsche models such as Porsche 906, Porsche 911, Porsche 918 and more. Stefan Bogner drives his own Porsche 911 1970 ST. Apart from Bogner's photographs, Porsche Drive offers information on each route and height profile. Thus you can follow Bogner's itinerary on a long weekend. Text in English and German.

Seit über 100 Jahren machen Automobile unabhängig. Eines macht seit seiner Geburtsstunde eine Generationen von Autonarren abhängig: der Porsche 911. Kaum ein anderes Fahrzeug strahlt eine ähnliche Faszination aus wie er. Scharen von Automobilbegeisterten drückten sich seit seiner Präsentation auf der IAA 1963 in Frankfurt an seinen Scheiben die Nasen platt, und es gab kaum einen unter ihnen, der nicht vom eigenen 911 träumte. Für Porsche entwickelte er sich zum Dauerbrenner und für die Automobilindustrie zum Trendsetter. Die Erfolgsgeschichte des Elfers dauert nun schon über 40 Jahre an, und ein Ende ist nicht in Sicht. "Faszination 911" zeigt die Entwicklung des Heckmotorsportwagens mit dem einzigartig fauchenden Sechszylinder-Boxermotor von der Entwicklung über die Markteinführung und diversen Evolutionsstufen bis hin zum aktuellen wassergekühlten Jubiläumsmodell >40 Jahre 911

Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

Hagit Borer develops a new model of word formation, arguing that on the one hand the basic building blocks of language are rigid semantic and syntactic functions, while on the other hand they are roots, which in themselves are but packets of phonological information, and are devoid of both meaning and grammatical properties of any kind.

911

Author: Ulf Poschardt
Publisher: Klett-Cotta
ISBN: 9783608105810
Release Date: 2013-07-24
Genre: Social Science

Der Porsche 911 ist ein einzigartiges Symbol für die grenzenlose Sehnsucht nach absoluter Überschreitung. Ulf Poschardt umkreist den 911er als Phänomen der Zeit-, Kultur-, Technik- und Designgeschichte und bekennt seine Liebe zur persönlichen Autonomie auf vier Rädern. Jerry Seinfeld fährt ihn, Boris Johnson bewundert ihn, Volker Schlöndorff hasst ihn und Andreas Baader hat ihn sogar gestohlen. Der Porsche 911 bewegt die Welt. In Deutschland von manchen als Bonzenschale verachtet, gilt er in den USA als Lieblingsauto des -linksliberalen Intellektuellen. Der 911er wurde nicht nur von einer der faszinierendsten und umstrittensten Unternehmerfamilien erfunden, er verfügt auch über eine unvergleichliche technische Genese. Zudem ist er ein glänzendes Beispiel einer Designtradition, die in »form follows function« kein modisches Dogma sieht, sondern Ausdruck schwäbischen Pragmatismus war. Ulf Poschardt legt den Porschefahrer auf die Couch und stellt fest, dass ein bisschen Narzissmus schon okay ist. In diesem Sinne: Nicht alle können und müssen Porsche fahren, aber das »Lebensgefühl 911er« als Geste der Freiheit und des Mutes, alles zu geben, ist für jeden da.

Audi R8 30 Years of Quattro AWD

Author: Alan Crawford
Publisher: Xlibris Corporation
ISBN: 9781493164721
Release Date: 2014-03-05
Genre: Transportation

On a small assembly line in Neckarsulm, Germany, no more than twenty exotic Audi R8 sports cars are built daily. The entire process is overseen by small teams of specialists that oversee every step of production. Every single part is inspected carefully, and nothing goes unchecked. It is a level of hand-built quality one might expect to find in a Ferrari Enzo or the Vector W8A of the 1980s, but almost unheard of from a manufacturer the size of Audi AG. The Turbo Quattro Coupe (or Urquattro) of the early 1980s was largely assembled by hand much in the same way, but Audi has refined the process for the R8 and has introduced one of the most spectacular sports cars ever. I hope this book will provide a better insight into the design, development, and production of this magnificent automobile.
