More About This Textbook

Overview

The long career of the Porsche Turbo started during the first oil crisis--a time when it seemed that fast, powerful cars would have no further place on the motoring scene. Yet the Turbo has remained immune from such criticism ever since its debut at the Paris Motor Show in 1974. The evidence: a quarter of a century of unbroken success. In 1975, when the Turbo went into series production, 260 horsepower were sufficient to put across its power philosophy. The peak of the output curve was reached by the fourth generation of Porsche's top model in 1996, when the special Turbo S edition was rated at 450 horsepower. The most recent, fifth-generation Porsche Turbo endeavors to bring the fast driver that much closer to sports car perfection.

    *not* a 'full history' of Porsche Turbos

    The 'history' was very light. Indeed, the average folks at our local Porsche club know alot more history than you will find in this book. For example, there is no reference data for production or racing turbos, no racing histories of major races, drivers, etc. All the 'history' is brief, in antedotal form, and with gaping omissions. Only if you know nothing of Porsche racing history will this be of any interest to you. This book is really a sales brochure for the 2001 Turbo. The author gives a token history of the Turbo and then waxes on for chapters about features of the latest 996 Turbo. The pictures are mostly of production cars, and mostly of the more recent models. While the picture quality is very nice, the content nothing special. If you know nothing about Porsches, and are interested in the 996 Turbo production car, you may enjoy this book.
