Porsche 901: The Roots of a Legend



The transition from the 356 to the 901 has never before been documented as precisely as this – it is the purpose of this book to shed more light on this exceptional period, to describe the genesis of the 901. It goes to the very heart of the Porsche brand – to the creation of the 901, which rapidly transformed into the 911.

The 901 model was introduced at Frankfurt motor show in 1963. 82 cars were built before the serial number was changed to 911, although none were sold to the public at the time.

Over the last 20 years, author Jürgen Lewandowski – whose personal library now amounts to more than 4,500 books – has initiated, written, and edited around 60 books on the history of the automobile and the development of new models.witnessed the development of the Porsche 959 more than 30 years ago and describes the difficult birth of the super car including the three Paris-Dakar rallies and the Le Mans race. A fascinating boxed set with three volumes on different topics: technical data, history, and a large-format illustrated book that shows the 959 genesis including all derivatives and new photos of the most beautiful specimen. After 30 years, this comprehensive work presents even the minutest details, it comments on events in the past, and contemporary witnesses have their say – all in all it is a literary monument to the Porsche 959.
