Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“A must have for the Porsche lover for the holidays.” - Andre Dufault, Bear Facts

“Photographs are the real standouts in this volume as expected from Mr. Leffingwell, the accompanying text are by no means mere captions but great pleasure can be derived from just looking at the pictures. …buy it for the pictures but don’t miss reading the stories.” - Eric Chau, P4

“If you have a Porsche book collection, or intend to someday, this is the one to ad. From racecars to production cars to future concepts, virtually everything is covered.” – Pat Enright, El Portal

“It is the most complete Porsche coffee-table book available, and it is worth reading from cover to cover after you have looked at the pictures.  If I could keep only one Porsche coffee-table book, this would be it.” - The Heat Exchanger

“Porsche lovers are fortunate indeed to be able to add Mr. Leffingwell’s new book to their library.  Even avid Porschephiles will find something new in this well-researched work. Christmas is around the corner.  Do your spouse a favor and tell him or her that you’d like Randy Leffingwell’s book for Christmas.” – Ed Yuen, Sonne Porsche 

Photographs are the real standouts in this volume, as expected from Mr. Leffingwell.  The accompanying text is by no means mere captions but great pleasure can be derived from just looking at the pictures. …buy it for the pictures but don’t miss reading the stories.” - Eric Chau, The P4

 “In a single sitting with Porsche Sixty Years I read over 82 pages… the writing was that engaging. If you want the definitive history of Porsche, or a great gift for your Porsche nut, I can highly recommend this book as a great addition to your library!.” - David Witteried, Winding Roads

“Randy Leffingwell is MBI’s best selling author and a fantastic photographer. This is his fourth book on Porsches and is his tour de force. It is a celebration of Porsche’s 60th anniversary…”a vault of Porsche history.” The comprehensive work includes 296 photographs and 66 diagrams…a gallery of Leffingwell’s personal portraits and many rare gems from the Porsche archives seen here for the first time. Randy also had an all- access pass that led to fascinating interviews with key Porsche personnel that contributed interesting anecdotes that help tell the complete Porsche story. “PORSCHE: Sixty Years” is a masterpiece. The book rates five of five lug nuts. Spectacular.” – Gregg Leary, SPEEDTV.com

 “This year marked 60 years of Porsche. Motorbooks.com published an incredible book honoring this magnificent feat for Porsche. Author Randy Leffingwell provides a very in depth and detailed history. Along with all the magnificent photos, there is some very informative reading. If you like coffee table books in your home and you want some really interesting Porsche history this book needs to be added to your collection.” – Palmetto Pipes

“Just released, Randy Leffingwell’s chronology of Porsche’s first 60 years is a must have book for every Porsche lover. The book would be worth the cover price for the photos alone but the text is a “vault of Porsche history with interviews of key personnel who made Porsche what it is today.” - PCA Longhorn Region Roundup

  “The access that Leffingwell had to Porsche’s inside story makes all this a work you will want to own more than any other. The pictures run the gamut from racing action to carefully composed car-portraits, complete with hoar-frost and cobblestones. If you have no books on the history of Porsche in your collection, this is where to start. If you already have several such books, the “inside stories,” the variety of pictures, and the reasonable pricing will make this book your next purchase.” - PCA Newsletter Red River Region 

 “With over 300 color photos and diagrams in 348 pages, this journal of Porsche history is lavishly illustrated. Leffingwell is a veteran photographer and author and this experience shows in his interviews with those who made Porsche a marquee of distinction. – Dale Hewitt, Tobacco Roads

 “A richly illustrated book, Porsche Sixty Years, tells the story of this legendary marque which made its name on the streets and racetracks of the world and would make an ideal Christmas gift for any sports car fan.” – David Hooper, Grimsby Telegraph

“But even if you can't tell a carburetor from a camshaft, Randy Leffingwell's Porsche Sixty Years from Motorbooks is worth a purchase (or at least a perusal at your favorite bookstore). The thorough tome features an incredible collection of images by Leffingwell, author of several books on the famed marque, as well as those from the archives (among them, of course, Ferdinand Porsche's Type 356, the first to bear his name). And while a book isn't quite as tempting as a 911, it's a little more recession-friendly.” – Jared Paul Stern, men.style.com

“This is a fantastic book and would make a wonderful Christmas gift for the Porsche lover in the family. The historical pictures and Porsche history is complete and your coffee table would never look better.” – Ted Blacklidge, Uber Alles

 

“As well as a best selling author, he is a spectacular photographer and they bring the book alive to provide the complete book for the complete car.” - Somerset County Gazette

 

“The long, interesting history, categorized by years and models, street cars and racing, is a splendid, thoughtful, and complete bonus for Porsche fans.” - Mark Wigginton, Sports Car Market

“This is a great book” - Pete Kauffman, Der Vorganger

“It features plenty of rare archive photos and is a worthwhile addition to any Porsche fan’s bookcase.” - Auto Express

Photographs are the real standouts in this volume as expected from Mr. Leffingwell, the accompanying text are by no means mere captions but great pleasure can be derived from just looking at the pictures. . . . buy it for the pictures but don't miss reading the stories.

It is the most complete Porsche coffee-table book available, and it is worth reading from cover to cover after you have looked at the pictures. If I could keep only one Porsche coffee-table book, this would be it.
