Porsche: Excellence Was Expected Volume 1 Volume 2 Volume 3 Porsche: Excellence Was Expected includes augmented and edited versions of the 32 chapters from the 1977 book, as well as an additional 29 chapters that cover Porsche's history through 2002. This three-volume, 1,500-page set contains all the photos and artwork from the original version, enhanced by over 700 new black and white photos and 50 new color drawings of Porsche production and racing cars which were commissioned specifically for this updated edition. Author Ludvigsen has outdone himself in presenting the inner workings, masterpieces and failures of an independent automaker that has exerted a disproportionately powerful influence on the automotive industry. If the first edition of Excellence Was Expected was "the definitive archetypal marque history," (Michael Scarlett, Autocar) this revision and update is much more so. Ludvigsen's readers are sure to agree that the author's masterworklike Porscheis fighting fit for the Twenty-first Century.
