Porsche Shop - Porsche-Origin of the Species

If Karl Ludvigsen's Excellence Was Expected is not in your library, may we suggest you add a copy to it right away, and while you are shopping with the publisher - Bentley Publishers - you should also pick up a copy of Ludvigsen's Origin of the Species.

The 356 page hardback book looks into the specific influences and circumstances that brought forth the first Porsche-badged sports car. It covers every conceivable aspect from how the company was formed, the influences on the personnel involved with the company at its birth and how the original Porsche, the 356 came to be and how it evolved. Supporting the text is a magnificent set of images of Jerry Seinfeld's 356/2-040.
