Car Craft 2: Porsche 911 (Paperback)
The aim of this innovative series is to provide modelmakers and car enthusiasts with a new standard of primarily visual reference of both full-size cars and their scale models. Each book contains detailed technical information imparted through drawings and photographs while the meticulously researched full-colour profiles provides a complete reference for paint schemes and markings. In addition, every volume of the CarCraft series features summaries of design histories and operational careers, and reviews of available kits.
Recognised as one of the most important sports cars in the history of the automobile, Porsche's 911 represents a vital story in the annals of the design and driving of the motor car. This new book delivers an innovative format to the car enthusiast by covering the engineering, design, and modelling of Porsche's 911 series.
A true icon, 911 is the designer legend – and a driving tool par excellence: the 911 stemmed from the Porsche 356 yet created a new era and a new international definition of style amid a global motor sport record of success across race and rally events
Here in CarCraft title Number Two, experienced automotive writer, industrial designer and Porsche enthusiast Lance Cole pays tribute to the car in a detailed yet engaging commentary. New photography, the design story, and full coverage of the modelling options in synthetic materials and die cast metals, create a narrative of vital interest.
An inherently fascinating and impressively informative tour-de-force with respect to the legendary car, "Porch 911" by Lance Cole is a truly extraordinary and unreservedly recommended addition to personal, professional, and community library Automotive Studies collections in general, and the personal reading lists of all dedicated Porch 911 fans in particular.Midwest Book Review
