Der Porsche 911 ist ein einzigartiges Symbol für die grenzenlose Sehnsucht nach absoluter Überschreitung. Ulf Poschardt umkreist den 911er als Phänomen der Zeit-, Kultur-, Technik- und Designgeschichte und bekennt seine Liebe zur persönlichen Autonomie auf vier Rädern. Jerry Seinfeld fährt ihn, Boris Johnson bewundert ihn, Volker Schlöndorff hasst ihn und Andreas Baader hat ihn sogar gestohlen. Der Porsche 911 bewegt die Welt. In Deutschland von manchen als Bonzenschale verachtet, gilt er in den USA als Lieblingsauto des -linksliberalen Intellektuellen. Der 911er wurde nicht nur von einer der faszinierendsten und umstrittensten Unternehmerfamilien erfunden, er verfügt auch über eine unvergleichliche technische Genese. Zudem ist er ein glänzendes Beispiel einer Designtradition, die in »form follows function« kein modisches Dogma sieht, sondern Ausdruck schwäbischen Pragmatismus war. Ulf Poschardt legt den Porschefahrer auf die Couch und stellt fest, dass ein bisschen Narzissmus schon okay ist. In diesem Sinne: Nicht alle können und müssen Porsche fahren, aber das »Lebensgefühl 911er« als Geste der Freiheit und des Mutes, alles zu geben, ist für jeden da.

The Porsche 912 is one of the most famous sports cars of all time, outselling the Porsche 911 almost two to one in 1966 This book is a complete history of the development and design of the Porsche 912 When the Porsche 912 was introduced in the spring of 1965, some members of the staff were not quite happy with the new model, for it still had the four-cylinder engine of the 356 that was no longer in production, while the 911 already had the new six-cylinder, and had become a legend. However, the 911 was so expensive that many Porsche devotees in Germany could not, or did not want to, afford to buy it. For this reason, Porsche quickly needed a new, less expensive model so the 912 came into being, and from 1966 to 1969 about 32,000 vehicles were built. Apart from the Porsche 912 Coupe (1965 to 1969) this book also presents the Porsche 912 Targa (1966 to 1969). Less well-known, but all the more intriguing, is the story of the Porsche 912E, built in 1976 just for the US market, and of which only 2099 specimens exist."

-The first comprehensive homage to the Porsche R and RS models -From the first 911 R (1967) through the varying RS models, to the latest 911 R (2016) -Includes interviews with enthusiasts, racing drivers and customers -Presents portraits of unique collectors' items and race histories -Celebrates the 50th Anniversay of the Porsche 911 R in 2017 Porsche's sporting elite - the 911 R - more performance, less weight. As the first comprehensive homage to the R and RS models, this is a must-have for all Porsche 911 lovers. At auctions they rack up premium prices, but the makers of the 911 R never intended to create objects of speculation for maximum profit. Their main concern was developing vehicles that would appeal to customers because of their uncompromising sportiness. The story begins 50 years ago, when the first Porsche 911 R achieved five new long-distance world records in Monza; and goes on to the latest 911 R - a car that is aware of its history, with racing stripes, houndstooth bucket seats, manual gear change, and a free-revving naturally aspirated engine. In between the first and the latest lie 50 years, numerous models, and a legion of fans.
