Description

Strap in for German engineered horsepower in this specialized history of Porsche engines. You’ll get a full account of race cars powered by Porsche engines, but developed by other companies, in this detailed and extravagantly photographed book.

This is the first title to detail the entire history of Porsche engines down to exact specs, non-Porsche chassis, and race details; plus, personal stories from team drivers. This massive volume covers nearly 50 years, and is loaded with over 700 photos, many of which have never been published before.

The rest is history that you’ll be able to see for yourself!
