A more technically detailed view of the cars than the Original 924/944/968 Peter Morgan book, and as such makes an excellent companion to it. A very easy to read and comprehensive summary of the model range as well as their history both on the road and track. The data sections are particularly useful when looking at choosing and buying. A bit unglamorous in terms of the quality of the book itself and the photography, however at the price it is still a truly excellent purchase for the enthusiast.

No, this is NOT another coffee table book!!! All pictures are in black and white and the A5 size format means they are not particular big either...BUT it is possibly the most in detail account of the development and history of the Porsche Transaxle 4 cylinder cars!
Originally published in 1990 Michael Cotton thouroughly revised and updated the book in 2000 to include the crown of creation: The 968!
He describes in great detail the ultra-rare 924 Carrera GT/GTS/GTR cars which with up to 345HP were the most powerfull 4 cylinders ever made!!! There are even pictures of the Carrera GT engine that I have never seen anyehere else and disregarding the size, the photos are quite sharp and clear.
This book is such a source of information about the "Best handling, most balanced sports cars ever made" that it is an absolute must for every Porsche enthusiast... Yes every one, including you 911 fans out there! After all Michael Cotton rightly points out that for the first 15 years Porsche only built 4 cylinder cars and you wouldn't call the 356 "Not a real Porsche" just because it had VW Beetle engine, would you?
If you are a REAL Porsche enthusiast, this book is for you!

Bought this book for my husband as he's a keen Porsche owner (he owned 924 in the past and now a 944) He doesn't read very much, but has had his 'nose stuck in this book' for the last few days. Thank you

Good model history and reference guide. All pictures are black and white. A few colour pictures would have been nice, and some more driving impressions.
