"Randy Leffingwell is a Porsche enthusiast - serving as primary reason why this book isn't just another regurgitated account following the history of one of the world's most celebrated marques. Printed as a three-pound soft-cover, the book carries a list price of $30.00 (it is $21.90 right now onAmazon). That's a literary bargain if you're a fan of European sports cars." - AutoBlog.com"Richly illustrated, each important model of the fabled marque is covered, with interviews of key personnel and racers included. All of it is well-researched and written, with quality photography and archive photos to back it up. Even if you have shelves full of Porsche books, this one offers a unique and informative treatment for old and new Porsche enthusiasts alike." - "Vintage Motorsport"



"I'm easily caught up in the quick reading style and insight I haven't come across in other books." - PorschePerfect.com

From the Back Cover

Say the word "Porsche," and the first idea that springs to mind is engineering excellence. Throughout its storied history, Porsche has produced some of the world's most finely engineered automobiles. While some companies pursue form over function, Porsche has taken the opposite approach, making no compromises in its pursuit of function. But in the case of Porsche automobiles, the function is so stunning that the form that follows cannot help but be exquisitely beautiful. In "Porsche: A History of Excellence," author and photographer Randy Leffingwell celebrates the rich history of this fabled marque.
