LIMITED EDITION 964 „Porsche 964 – 30 YEARS 1988 – 2018“ (to be released on 12/01/2018)

To celebrate the Porsche 964’s thirtieth anniversary BMB Berlin Motor Books is publishing PORSCHE 964 “30 YEARS” 1988–2018 in a limited edition of 964 copies.

Following his book about the G model, ‘Porsche 911 – Aircooled Years 1974-1989,’ published in 2017, the author Andreas Gabriel now deals in depth with the Porsche 964. This model line became one of the most important in the car’s history because the 911 with its air-cooled boxer engine threatened in the mid-1980s to drift into the long grass in terms of technology. The heating problem seemed about to be the downfall of the automobile that to this day has been the most important car Porsche has ever made. But its makers were not going to let that happen. Even without official instructions, and with the threat of impending dismissal, they continued their development work with a view to eliminating the 911’s few weak points. The result was impressive. In 1988 the 964 series with its state-of-the-art technology catapulted the 911 concept into modernity. The 911 Carrera 4, the first-ever production model all wheel drive sports car, was indeed way ahead of its time, and to this day the 964 remains one of the most popular Porsches ever, combining mature and reliable technology with safe handling characteristics and a fascinating engine sound.

The author Andreas Gabriel was again able to interview the man who from 1979 on played a leading role in championing the 911’s survival and made his mark on the 964 range. The book ‘Porsche 964 “30 YEARS” 1988–2018’ presents each and every model in the series. In addition to detailed buying advice and price trends in recent years, the book takes an in-depth look at all of the specials, some details of which are unknown even to experts. For this book project Porsche once more opened its historic archives, thereby enabling inter alia previously unseen photos from the 964’s development phase to be published. The internationally recognized Porsche expert Tobias Kindermann has also compiled for the book an exclusive technology and statistics section about all Porsche 964s made between 1989 and 1994. 370 pages

LIMITED EDITION 2018 “Porsche 911 – Air-Cooled Years 1974 – 1989“

Strictly limited print run of 2018 copies worldwide

After the great success of his Porsche 911 Turbo book entitled “Aircooled years 1975-1998”, Andreas Gabriel has in recent years exhaustively investigated the Classic 911 G model. This Porsche 911 became a real evergreen and kept its place in the model range for all of sixteen years. A feat not achieved by any subsequent generation of the ‘Eleven. The G model has always been – and still remains – one of the most popular classic Porsches, combining as it does sophisticated and reliable technology with unbeatable driving pleasure. Andreas Gabriel had the opportunity to talk to the developers of this air-cooled classic and even met the man who campaigned to crucial effect for the survival of the ‘Eleven at the end of 1970s, when it was due to be replaced by the Porsche 928. The book “Porsche 911 Aircooled Years 1974 – 1989” presents every single model from this series. In addition to detailed purchase advice and price trends in recent years, it deals exhaustively with all six limited editions, some of which are completely unknown even to connoisseurs. For this book project, Porsche once again provided access to its historical archive, which is why the reader can now see, among other things, previously unpublished photographs of Helmuth Bott taken during the testing phase of the G model in Algeria. Internationally recognised Porsche expert Tobias Kindermann has also compiled an exclusive technology and statistical section for all Porsche 911 models from model years 1974 – 1989.

EDITORS EDITION “Porsche Speedster – Legends live forever 1989-2011”

Strictly limited print run of 997 copies worldwide

On the occasion of the 30th birthday of the Porsche 911 Speedster, Andreas Gabriel embarked on a journey to fathom the last secrets surrounding this legendary vehicle.Why was the 911 Speedster presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1987 with a slimline body when it could only be ordered in the Turbo look? Why was the successor model, the 964 Speedster, then only available in the slimline version after customers had already become accustomed to the Turbo look? Why was an official Speedster version of the last air-cooled Porsche 911, the 993, never built? On his quest for answers to these questions, he visited Porsche veteran Herbert Linge and talked to all the project managers for the previous 911 Speedster series.
For this book project, Porsche opened its historical archive. Which is why the book shows previously unpublished documents alongside unknown photographs of Speedster design models and prototypes.Internationally recognised Porsche expert Tobias Kindermann also compiled an exclusive technology and statistical section for all Speedster series.

In the spring of 1975, the first Porsche 911 Turbo took pride of place in the showrooms of the Porsche dealerships.
