Born in the Bohemian town of Maffersdorf on September 3, 1875, Ferdinand Porsche displayed unparalleled automotive engineering genius from his earliest years, designing some of the world’s most iconic cars, like the Mercedes-Benz Kompressor and Typ S models. In 1938 Porsche began development of the Typ 64, the forefather of all Porsche race cars. Porsche captures the Porsche story through entries on the most iconic Porsche cars ever built, from the first 356 to the latest 911, to the mid-engine Boxster and Cayman, and all the front-engine cars including the 928, 944, 968 and Cayenne. No other sports car has achieved the success of those built by Porsche, on the street or on the world's racetracks. Part of Motorbooks' First Gear series, Porsche celebrates the German marque's history through lavishly illustrated profiles of the company's ground-breaking sports cars, each one supplemented with spec boxes and "did you know?" factoids.

From the Inside Flap:

About the Author Peter Morgan has written some 25 books on Porsche and these have been translated into at least seven languages. He has a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering and is trained in the automotive industry. He has written for publication since his teenage years and writes for motoring magazines worldwide. He has an expansive technical and historical knowledge of Porsche and runs an independent Porsche buyer’s consultancy. He is a member of the Guild of Motoring Writers (GB) and an honorary member of the Porsche Club Great Britain.  About the Photographer John Colley started his photographic career at Rolls Royce Aero Engines, moving into general advertising work before going freelance in the early 1970s. A keen motorist, competing in club-level speed and race events in cars ranging from the Mini Cooper S to Formula Atlantic, he started photographing motorsport events and contributed to Autosport Magazine. Shooting the front cover for issue one of Classic and Sportscar in 1982 heralded a move to more motoring magazine and book feature work. In recent years, studio work has dominated John’s schedule, although he is retained by Goodwood to cover the annual Festival of Speed and Revival events

From the Back Cover:
