Noblesse oblige this has been true for nearly 80 years now. The cult brand and the Made in Germany cars have stood for the perfect balance of power and elegance and rightly so: about 70 percent of all Porsches ever built are still on the road today, and to this day, all the generations of those striking cars are still eyecatchers in the streets of the world. The small corporation has been defending its pole position with a great sense of quality and passion. This book portrays both Porsche s unique success stories in the motor sports arena and their boldly innovative design and style from the 356 Alu of 1948 to the new Porsche 911 and Boxster. The plentiful highquality illustrations by renowned photographer Rainer W. Schlegelmilch will fascinate any fan of cars and motor sports.
