Porsche Design has just wheeled out a celebratory coffee table book acknowledging its 50th anniversary, and it’s the perfect last-minute gift for anyone in your life who loves the Ludwigsburg luxury manufacturer.
‘It’s About Time’ has served as the slogan for its ongoing campaign. It now overtakes the cover of a 280-page book, full of notes and photos regarding the manufacturer’s history and legacy. In addition to these unseen images (of which there are over 200), it features memoirs from friends and family and interviews with several journalists. Above all else, it captures the accomplishments and essence of the late, great Ferdinand Alexander Porsche to a tee, serving as a genuine written testament to the genius behind the iconic 911 and Porsche Design as a whole.
Of course, this is different from the typical Porsche-themed coffee table book you’d see at a friend’s house, as it is chock-full of countless other products that don’t necessarily pertain to world-famous rides. For example, Porsche Design’s Chronograph 1 garners significant attention in this new release, as even its legacy is noted on the book’s back cover. All in all, this shows just how much of an impact the design studio has had.
While the book will be fully available in January, those interested can pre-order a copy on Porsche Design’s webshop for $65.
