Turbo 3.0 Book Heads to the Printer

In mid-October, a huge milestone was accomplished for the Turbo 3.0 book: all 536 pages of the book were submitted to the printer so that pre-press work could begin, including carefully proofing every single page to ensure it is press ready. With the ball rolling forward, it is an approximate three month timeline to complete proofing, printing, binding and transport before an initial allotment of books are delivered back to Parabolica Press. Once we receive the initial copies of the Turbo 3.0 book here in the United States, we will begin direct shipping the first copies to those who were early supporters of our work that pre-ordered and paid for the book before November 15, 2017. Thanks for the patience as we had to delay the original ship data from late Fall 2017 to Winter. All book orders placed or paid for after November 15th will not ship until at least two weeks after the earlier paid pre-orders. If you want to be among the first to receive the Turbo 3.0 book buy it now!

As a thank you for the patience of those who pre-ordered the Turbo 3.0 book directly from Parabolica Press, we are pleased to share a digital online preview of the entire first chapter. This chapter explores the history of turbocharged engine development from the early 1900s, historical attempts of turbocharging production cars, and ends with Porsche's development of the turbocharger for the 917 and Turbo Carrera RSR. This special preview is only available to Parabolica Press customers who sign-in to the account that they used to pre-order the Turbo 3.0 book.

For customers who have already purchased the Turbo 3.0 book as a holiday gift for another person, please contact us.
