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.

Porsche 912

Author: Jürgen Lewandowski
Publisher:
ISBN: 3667103069
Release Date: 2015-11
Genre:

When the Porsche 912 was introduced in the spring of 1965, some members of the staff were not quite happy with the new model, for it still had the four-cylinder engine of the 356 that was no longer in production, while the 911 already had the new six-cylinder, and had become a legend. However, the 911 was so expensive that many Porsche devotees in Germany could not, or did not want to, afford to buy it. For this reason, Porsche quickly needed a new, less expensive model so the 912 came into being, and from 1966 to 1969 about 32,000 vehicles were built. Apart from the Porsche 912 Coupe (1965 to 1969) this book also presents the Porsche 912 Targa (1966 to 1969). Less well-known, but all the more intriguing, is the story of the Porsche 912E, built in 1976 just for the US market, and of which only 2099 specimens exist."

Release Date: 2014-06-16
Genre: Transportation

Based loosely upon the VW Beetle, which Dr Porsche also designed, the 356 was the first Porsche model and, as such, represented the birth of a legend. The curvaceous little coupés and spyders were a huge success throughout the world, and continued to be so throughout the model's life because of a policy of continuous development. Here is the full and fascinating story of the Porsche 356, and the racing and rallying cars which sprang from it. Here, too, is the story of the very beginnings of what, today, is one of the greatest sports car marques and an icon of automotive excellence. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Arial}

This book goes behind the scenes to document every detail and emotion - The photographer and author spent three years following the Porsche team - Special edition, limited to 99 copies, signed and numbered Endurance races are the supreme discipline in motorsports. Several times per year, the best race drivers worldwide are on the tracks for 24 hours. The 24-hour races at the Nürburgring and in Daytona are the toughest tests for man and material.

Star photographer Frank Kayser and his team observed the delicate and deeply exhausting work of the Porsche team for three years.

His photos show the stress, the top performance, the eternal night, and the success of perfection. With photography by Keyser, detailing a world previously unseen by outsiders, and a passionate text by journalist Heike Hientzsch sketching the participants' emotions, this book illustrates the true nature of endurance races - the tension, exhaustion, and the dedication.
