Porsche Gmnd coupe 356/2-040, the cornerstone of Jerry Seinfeld's collection, serves as the inspiration for Porsche - Origin of the Species, an in-depth exploration by the eminent automotive historian Karl Ludvigsen into the specific influences and circumstances that brought forth the first Porsche-badged sports cars.

How and when did the people of the Porsche firm find themselves in a sawmill in Gmnd? What was the influence on the 356 of the cars and engines built by Porsche before and during the war? How and why was the first 356 shaped as it was? What was the real relationship between the tube-framed Type 356 roadster and the first 356/2 coupes? Questions like these deserve answers because the resulting DNA is so powerful, so robust, that it still influences the shape and style of Porsches well into the twenty-first century. The saga that emerges encompasses mechanical revelations, human drama and the turmoil of world war. Porsche-Origin of the Species will appeal to all car enthusiasts who are eager to know what events really ignited the spark from which all other Porsches evolved.

Hardcover, 10 1/2 in. x 10 1/2 in., 356 pages, 436 photos and illustrations

In 911 x 911, Dieter Landenberger, head of Porsche's archives and the co- director of the Porsche Museum, has assembled an amazing array of photographs, vintage advertisements, and illustrations, along with revealing captions and text rendered in five languages. The result is the ultimate visual tour through Porsche 911 history - from the earliest line drawings and design sketches to the latest images of the world's most enduring sports car. The 911 is shown behind the scenes at the Porsche factory, in competition at races and rallies, and on display in original advertisements and posters from Europe and North America.

With 962 pages and hundreds of photos, this massive book covers seven generations of the 911, starting with the original 901 prototype unveiled in 1963 and concluding with the present-day type 991. Every variation of the 911 built for the road or race track is represented - from the classic Carrera Coupe through the Cabriolets, Targas, Turbos, and GT3 race car editions. The visual tour begins with an introduction explaining the 911's origins and impact, followed by sections devoted to each major stage in the car's evolution. Each page features a single image accompanied by captions in German, English, French, Spanish, Chinese, and Russian. Taken together, the result is a remarkably varied visual trip through the 911's legacy - one that has the look and feel of a deluxe scrapbook assembled to Porsche's exacting standards.

Despite the book's impressive length and multi-language text, 911 x 911's compact format and strong design make it remarkably user-friendly. And visual touches like the German racing silver cover, and end sheets modeled on Porsche's classic checkered upholstery are sure to be appreciated by enthusiasts. Hardcover, 9.75" by 9.75", 962 pages. 117 black-and-white and 749 color photographs.
