Back in print after a long absence! This is the third volume of a set of books that chronicle in definitive depth the history of the evergreen 911, from the earliest design studies to the water-cooled cars of today. This volume starts with the introduction of the SC series and the 3.3 litre Turbo, before going on to cover the 3.2 litre Carreras and the early 959. A process of continuous evolution has kept the 911 fresh for nearly 40 years, while impeccable build quality has ensured that most of even the very earliest cars have survived as desirable and usable classics. Features: The third book in THE definitive 911 (and 912) reference library. Full year-by-year, model-by-model coverage, including all limited editions. International markets covered in great detail. Over 200 pictures, mostly in colour, including contemporary advertising and sales brochure material.

Born in Coventry, the heart of Britains motor industry, Brian 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 fathers garage. Brian became heavily involved in the classic car scene at 19, and says he turned to writing by accident. He now writes full-time and, since 1990, when his first book was released, he has had over 80 titles published. Brian and his wife, Miho, have two children, Louis and Sophie-Mercedes. They currently live in Chiba, close to Tokyo, where they can enjoy life with their Dobermann and a Thoroughbred racehorse, now retired from the tracks.
