What came first - the Porsche or the Beetle? Which Porsche racing car set every world record in the very year it was first presented in racing at Monza? And who is "Sascha"? Immerse yourself in the unique and visionary world of Porsche: in tales of secret prototypes, fascinating photos from the Porsche archives, magic words such as "Carrera" and inside stories that have never yet been told in this way.
Sure, you can pick up a couple nuggets of Porsche history by watching Jay Leno and Jerry Seinfeld talk cars as guests on each other's shows, but if you want all the Porsche news and trivia, 111 Porsche Stories That You Should Know is your one-stop source. The...300-page hardcover book includes 150 color photos of all the classic Porsches, drivers, engineers and executives that made the company the icon it is today. It will look great on a coffee table near you. Maxim 111 Stories is good fun for any Porsche or automotive history fan. Pick it up and read two or three stories, or ten or twenty. Learn a little about Peter Falk or Brian Redman, and then skim forward to a section on a 959 custom-ordered with gold tailpipes before bouncing over to the tale of the 928 GT with four doors. You'll learn something new, and be a smash at your local Porschephile cocktail parties. -- Doug Lloyd Panorama
