Cars & Curves: A Tribute To 70 Years Of Porsche

Aug 15, 2018

Category: Entertainment

A special edition watch, a 70-car parade, a museum exhibition – Porsche has found plenty of ways to commemorate its 70th birthday. Their latest is more of a gift to us – a rich and vivid coffee table book, showcasing seven decades of mastery from the German car brand.

Though facts and figures can attest to Porsche’s dominance – like that Porsche prototyped a hybrid electric vehicle in 1899, or that Porsche has won the 24 Hours Of Le Mans 19 times – but through images. A 911 hugging a curve, Stefan Bellof’s 956 setting a record at the 1983 Nürburgring race – phots of the majestic cars and the moments that elevated them to legend are vital to illustrating the prowess of the Porsche name. That’s just what you get in the Cars & Curves book: a photographic and textual compendium of the best models and historical moments that made Porsche the ultimate name in car engineering.
