So happy with this choice.
The "definitive" book, in my opinion, on the history of the 911 is the "911 Story" by Paul Frere and Tony Dron. This book, whilst not containing quite the level of detailed information as the 911 Story, is an easier read and is a very worthy addition to any collection of books on the 911 or Porsche in general.
"Taking advantage of DFi enhancements to the 3.6 litre Mezger block, but essentially doing nothing with either the turbos or intercoolers while increasing boost from 1.0 to 1.2 bar took horsepower up to 530 throughout the range from 6250 to 6750 rpm." (Page 178)
These incorrect details stood out because I know my car. So what about the details on other cars? It kind of throws in some doubt on the other facts within the book - which I now take with a pinch of salt.
It is a shame because the history and evolution discussions are interesting and very different to Paul Frere's 911 bible.
This book could be great with a bit more work. Pictures are excellent and it compliments the Paul Frere book without simply duplicating everything. Mistakes though let it down.
