Noblesse oblige - this has been true for nearly 80 years now. The cult
brand and the "Made in Germany" cars have stood for the perfect balance
of power and elegance - and rightly so: about 70 percent of all Porsches
ever built are still on the road today, and to this day, all the
generations of those striking cars are still eyecatchers in the streets
of the world. The small corporation has been defending its pole position
with a great sense of quality and passion. They do not build sports
cars in order to win races; rather, they participate in races in order
to improve their sports cars. Porsche has won the world’s toughest race,
the 24 Hours of Le Mans, more often than any other manufacturer.
This book portrays both Porsche’s unique success stories in the motor sports arena and their boldly innovative design and style.
The plentiful highquality illustrations by renowned photographer Rainer
W. Schlegelmilch and the informative texts by Hartmut Lehbrink will
fascinate any fan of cars and motor sports.
