The mid-1970s were dark times for the automotive industry, especially for high-performance cars as manufacturers worldwide struggled to comply with new emissions and safety regulations, let alone deliver a satisfying driving experience. Then—out of nowhere—Porsche dropped a bombshell, announcing a turbocharged series production supercar: the 3.0-liter 930 Turbo was an instant sensation. From its inception Porsche's mission has been about competition, engineering excellence and pushing the boundaries of what is possible—leading never following. Porsche's 3.0-liter Turbo was THE car of the 1970s and 80s, establishing Porsche as a top-tier manufacturer.
Parabolica Press's second Porsche book—Turbo 3.0—continues the theme of being carefully researched using the Porsche factory archives, private collections, period documentation and intensive study. Available for pre-order now in two individually numbered editions, the Limited Edition and the Publisher's Edition, both contain significant never before published material.
