For 70 years Porsche has captivated the imagination of the design-savvy with its state-of-the-art engineering and inimitable style that ventures down roads seldom taken. A collaboration with the makers of award-winning cars and culture magazine ramp, this new volume compiles the most dynamic car designs that have had pulses racing for decades.
Overseen by Müller, the revered motorsports writer and biographer who has reported for all major German car publications, the book reveals 55 of the brand’s most paradigm-shifting, jaw-dropping cars in 100 lush and dynamic colour and 50 black-and-white photos.
These historic and contemporary photos not only illustrate the beauty of their designs, but illuminate the cultures in which they shot to fame. Highlights include the 356 ‘No. 1’ Roadster, the 550 Spyder, the 917 and the record-breaking 911 GT2 RS from the past year.
Written in English, French and German, this is not only a must-have for the libraries of connoisseurs of car design, but also for those designers who want to understand the importance of cultivating a brand that stands the test of time.
