About the Author:

Born in Coventry, once the heart of the British motor industry, Brian Long has a passion for vintage and sporting machinery. A trained mechanical engineer and a long-term owner of both the MX-5 and rotary Mazdas, he has had a strong connection with Mazda products for well over a decade. Brian now lives just outside Tokyo, and spends much of his free time with Thoroughbred horses. He has had more than 70 books published, including many works on Japanese marques.

Review:

With the one millionth Porsche 911 rolling of the production as we write, Veloce have chosen a good time to re-release this history of the 911's 996 series by Brian Long. The 966 represents very good value as a second-hand buy at the moment, so much so, having also now read this book, I'm sorely tempted.- Retro Speed. This book centres on the 996, the first of the water-cooled models. The author first gives a potted history of the marque, and then takes the reader on a detailed and interesting tour of all things 996: how it was developed, the many variations and options over its nine year life, competition models and racing successes, and how the car was promoted in its key markets. While the look of the 996 remained much the same, many changes were introduced over its lifetime; some as major as four wheel drive and other minor ones like the colour of the badging. Illustrated throughout with factory photos, plus a neat selection of ads from the US, Europe, and Japan, this 224 page book should be enjoyed by the many fans of this evergreen Porsche model. - New Zealand Classic Car.
