Porsche 911: The Definitive History 1971 to 1977 (Classic Reprint) (Paperback)
Porsche 911: The Definitive History 1971 to 1977 is the second in a series of books which chronicle in definitive depth the history of the evergreen 911, from earliest design studies to the water-cooled cars of today. This volume takes up the 911 story from the 2.4 litre cars, and covers the 2.7 litre machines and the first of the legendary Turbos.
Born in Coventry, the heart of the British motor industry, Brian Long comes from a family with a proud heritage in the automotive and aviation fields. He trained as a mechanical engineer, and worked for a time at his father's garage. Brian became heavily involved in the classic car scene at 19, and says he turned to writing by accident. He has a long association with several major car manufacturers, is a member of the Society of Automotive Historians, and a member of the Guild of Motoring Writers. He now writes full-time and, since 1990, when his first book was released, he has had more than 80 titles published. Brian currently lives with his family in Chiba, in Japan, where they enjoy life with their Dobermann and Thoroughbred racehorse.
