I purchased this book based on very positive reviews in the motoring press. While the physical characteristics of the book are excellent, the layout is not. Printing & binding are what you would expect from a book in this price range, but the layout is dreadful. The photographs are of superb quality, but the vast majority are printed as double page spreads, which means they are ruined by being across the gutter. It would have been far better to have printed in landscape format with one picture on each page. Big pictures in portrait format means pictures with a "crease" down the middle. If you like pictures with such a "crease"-fine. If not, look elsewhere for a 911 book. This was a real missed opportunity & very disappointing. I shall move it on to someone else as soon as possible.

the book is bigg heavy and stupidly layouted, all the amazing photos are double page and therefore have a cut in the middle of the picture. Service and handling was great tho. wouldn't recomend this book, big heavy and almost no information and bad layout.

HASH(0x9164530c) out of 5 stars Stunning pictures but lacking text 2 May 2013
By Cameron Habib - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As essentially a "picture book," the title really does well here. Just over 300 pages long, each one a glossy full color page containing a full spread of a picture. The pictures themselves are stunning, both in printing and photographing - great color, saturation, framing, and overall composition. Paper weight is substantial, making the piece more of a coffee table book than something you'd sit in bed with. Somewhat chronologically arranged, starting with the earliest models, and moving through in chapters according to "erras," some of which overlap in years, to the modern day variants. Almost all pictures contain years and model designations, with some showcasing brief model specifications, such as engine, transmission, production, etc. The break in pages on the two-page spreads somewhat detracts from the viewing, but not much you can really do with that.

The text is really the low point of the book for me. What little text there is present is repeated in several languages, throughout most of the book. A short forward, and a small paragraph introducing each chapter is essentially the only information provided. No details on the history of each model, particular artwork / branding of the car, etc. Just a year, model, and a few sentences on what the particular era the chapter is based around. I understand providing a history lesson wasn't the main purpose of this book, but it would still have been nice to have a little background to accompany the stunning photographs.

Overall rather happy with the purchase; worth the price in my opinion. Definitely a book that will actually get picked up and flipped through for some time to come, and not just collect dust on some shelf. Great to show someone the progression of the brand, or as a conversation piece with company.

HASH(0x91645738) out of 5 stars Lot's of Pictures 20 Jun. 2013
By Ronald J. Tom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The pictures are fantastic but I was hoping for a complete history on the 911. If you are looking for an in depth look into how the 911 came about, you are looking at the wrong book. The book will give you a brief history of each model change but there is isn't enough meat to describe the conception, development and refinement of this fine vehicle.

HASH(0x91645960) out of 5 stars Major Disappointment 5 Aug. 2013
By Andy-X - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm a Porsche enthusiast and own a 911 Turbo. I bought this book expecting to read "the" illustrated history of this amazing car. However, for my surprise, it is basically a bunch of nice photographs bundled together in chronological order. There is almost no text or information. Well, if you like photography, as I do, then this may be a book for you. But if you want to learn about the Porsche 911 and its history, then look for something else. Too expensive for what it is. Well, I returned the book to Amazon.

Beautiful pictures, no question - but pretty much no text at all. I was hoping to also read about the history of the 911...
