Porsche #2# Cars with Soul

by Gui Bernardes

In Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen, August 1939, the 60K 10 project, under the supervision of one Professor Ferdinand Porsche, builds a car in anticipation of a race, Berlin to Rome, that will never take place. With this model, the idea for a light and aerodynamic car with a small engine but remarkable performance was born.

Nine years later this idea bore fruit and the company released their first automobile, the 356, created by Ferdinond's son, Ferry Porsche, which would launch the company into automotive history.

This book tells the story of Porsche, from the unique perspective of the cars themselves, through the most significant events and races of the marque's celebrated history.

An avid Porsche enthusiast, Gui Bernardes, takes you into the middle of the action, providing a front-row seat to the most exhilarating motoring races throughout history and across the globe.

The book is a beautifully illustrated tribute to the commitment of Porsche to reach the highest level in motorsport, to the extraordinary effort of the drivers, engineers and mechanics who helped to to achieve this, and of the remarkable link between Porsche and its passionate enthusiasts. It is also intended to applaud the commitment of the Porsche family to be present at races and other important events, since the beginning, making the Porsche fans feel part of a big and extraordinary family.
