Porsche 911 50 Years


Randy Leffingwell


In Porsche 911: 50 Years, best-selling author Randy Leffingwell celebrates a half-century of one of the world’s premier sports cars. Through beautiful photography sourced from Porsche’s own historic archive and lucid storytelling, he relates the entire history of the rear-engined wonder: design and development, racing and competition, engineering and technology, style and culture. Covering every iconic 911 model through the ages—including the original 901 prototype, the famous Turbo, and the fabled 959—Leffingwell also highlights the men behind the legend, from “Butzi” and “Ferry” Porsche to Peter W. Schutz and Dr. Helmuth Bott. Finally, the book taps into the 911 community, comprising the devoted clubs and enduring culture that will continue to surround the car long into the future.
