Classic Porsche magazine review (Jan/Feb 2016)

Classic Porsche magazine reviewed the Carrera 2.7 book in the January/February, 2016 issue #33:

Over the last 40 years the 1973 Carrera 2.7 RS has been covered in dozens of books and articles, yet its successor, the Carrera 2.7 MFI – a car with the identical engine and similar DNA – remains either largely unknown or misunderstood, even by long-time Porsche enthusiasts. This new work tells the complete story of these remarkable, yet unheralded sports cars.

The Carrera 2.7 book has been meticulously researched using the Porsche factory archives, private collections, period documentation and intensive study. With over 800 photos in its 406 pages, author Ryan Snodgrass's masterwork has covered everything anyone would ever want to know about this intriguing model.

Content includes comprehensive discussion of original options, photos of key details, insights into factory production and competition history. A considerable amount of this material has never before been published. Although primarily focused on the MFI-equipped Carrera 2.7, this book will also prove valuable to enthusiasts of any of the Porsche 911 and 930 Turbo models produced during the mid-1970s.

A Limited Edition of 2500 numbered hardcover copies have been produced in, enclosed within a protective slipcase. Price? £166.25, and worth every penny.
