  • Buyer's guides for the different models
  • Foreword by Jurgen Barth
  • A series of interviews with racing drivers such as Sir Stirling Moss, Derek Bell, John Surtees and Gijs van Lennep, and key Carrera figures such as designer Richard Soderberg and Klaus Bischof, head of the Porsche Rolling Museum
  • Over 400 colour photographs, many specially commissioned
