  • The true story of the link between the 356 and the 911, the legendary 901, which was officially never sold

The transition from the 356 to the 901 has never before been documented as precisely as this - it is the purpose of this book to shed more light on this exceptional period, to describe the genesis of the 901. It goes to the very heart of the Porsche brand - to the creation of the 901, which rapidly transformed into the 911.

The 901 model was introduced at Frankfurt motor show in 1963. 82 cars were built before the serial number was changed to 911, although none were sold to the public at the time.

About the Author:

Over the last 20 years, author Jürgen Lewandowski - whose personal library now amounts to more than 4,500 books - has initiated, written, and edited around 60 books on the history of the automobile and the development of new models.


This very nice book fills an important gap in the Porsche story, and not just as a prequel to the 911. Among the many useful points it makes is, as Wolfgang Porsche describes here in the Foreword, as he has done on many other occasions, that what we nowadays with the benefit of hindsight consider the 911’s 'inevitability' was anything but. (Jürgen Lewandowski SpeedReaders)

Give this 911 Love book to a Porsche enthusiast as a gift—and they will love you! You pretty much have to be, or want to be in the Porsche fold to really 'get' this book and revel in the spirit of the 911 lifestyle it celebrates. (Edwin Baaske SpeedReaders)
