I have a large Porsche book collection and this one is hands down the best Porsche book I have ever owned or seen. The attention to detail regarding the 2.7 Carrera is amazing. I restore Porsche's for a living and this is a valuable resource for me. In addition to that the quality of the paper, the binding, the color and photos is outstanding, again the best I have seen. Congratulations to Ryan Snodgrass for this amazing book and for adding to the knowledge data base regarding the Carrera 2.7 and Porsche cars in general. I'm telling all my friends in the Porsche World to get their copy now!
Dieses Buch gehört in die Kategorie "Buch von einem Fan für Fans". Der Autor hat keine Mühen gescheut alles nur Erdenkliche für diesen nicht so bekannten Porsche Carrera zusammenzutragen. Während um den "Pre-G" Carrera mit Entenbürzel ein wahrer Hype ausgebrochen ist und die Preise jenseits von Gut und Böse angekommen sind, ist es nicht so bekannt, dass derselbe 2,7 Liter Motor im sogenannten "G"-Modell mit Faltenbalgstoßstangen noch gut ein Jahr angeboten wurde, bevor er von den späteren 3 Liter-Varianten abgelöst wurde.
Dieses Buch beleuchtet die Geschichte des Carreras generell und zeigt alle Facetten des 2,7er G's. Dazu gehören alle technischen Änderungen, alle Farben, Ausstattungen, Prospekte, Testberichte uns eine schier unglaubliche Anzahl von Fotos - so sind zum Beispiel alle möglichen Farbvarianten als Bild vorhanden. Dazu gibt es viele zeitgenössische Fotos aus der damaligen Produktion.
Das Buch ist sehr aufwändig gemacht, erstklassig verarbeitet und wird im Schuber geliefert. Ein absolutes Muss, wenn man das nötige Kleingeld hat. Es ist die logische Ergänzung des Standardwerkes über den Porsche Carrera RS von Gruber/Konradsheim, die im letzten Jahr eine Neuauflage herausgebracht haben. Beide Bücher haben auch dieselbe Buchrückenhöhe - und passen also perfekt nebeneinander ins Regal.
Ich habe mir beide gegönnt - es lohnt sich! Wobei das Buch von Ryan Snodgrass spürbar günstiger ist als das andere..…
The title says it all; what a phenomenal job, well researched, well photo-documented, well written and very well published. I have read it twice, cover to cover and am still learning more. Typos and factual issues are few and far between (and I am sure Ryan has found all!) and, wouldn't you know it, I may have a pre-production Carrera that doesn't follow "all the rules. In short, this book is bound to be a companion to Ludvigen's "Excellence was Expected" and Kondrasheim/Gruber's "Carrera RS". I am only sorry that regular purchasers did not benefit from the Special Book Supplement that accompanied the red, limited edition..
I recently received my copy of Carrera 2.7 and did not put it down until I had devoured all 406 pages! I am life long Porsche fanatic who has a penchant for details and everything being "correct". Mr. Snodgrass must share this affliction as his attention to detail throughout this book borders on the compulsive. For many years the Impact Bumper 2.7 MFI cars have been overlooked and as such there was no definitive guide to the history, authenticity and the overall greatness of these cars. This book will answer all of your questions as well as provide you never before seen factory photographs to substantiate the many previously unknown details.
If I have any complaint with the book is that it is simply too much a piece of "art" to be a useful field tool. From its outer box, binding and beautiful pages it's simply a treat to turn the pages. I found myself being careful while reading so as to not damage what will be long held as one of the treasures of the Porsche written word. It is apparent the care that went into the design, copy and production of this book. It will go on my shelf next to copies of Ludvigsen's "Excellence Was Expected" and Kondradsheim's "Carrera RS". I can't wait to see what the Author comes up with next!
Now if the author could make a paperback "field tool" that I could use when evaluating or judging the authenticity a particular 2.7 MFI...
This is a very well produced book that documents the history of the Carrera 2.7. Incredibly well researched, complete with never before seen photographs, charts and information. Information is included on both production and prototype versions, as well as many "specials" and racing versions. This is a serious work for the serious Porsche collector or historian, but it is also very user friendly for the more casual reader. A must have addition to your Porsche automotive library.
I now have a copy of this book and it is superb! Certainly the definitive reference for Carrera 2.7 MFI cars. This book is thick with photography, tables, archive pictures, charts, period documents and production numbers. It is meticulously researched.
Everyone is asking you “What do you want for Christmas?”. Well, here is your answer. Get this book ordered.
I knew it was going to be good but I’m staggered at the quality of the photography, the printing, the binding, the design & layout. It is wonderful. And - of course - the content is remarkably complete and thorough. Ryan has invested much of his life into this reference piece and a substantial chunk of money no doubt too. There’s no scrimping on quality and no depth of detail missed. I wholeheartedly recommend it.
When you read the book you understand that the author has put his heart and soul into researching and writing the book, which is probably the reason he decided his work was worthy enough to dedicate it to his late father. Any father would be proud of his son writing such a masterpiece! A must read for any enthusiast or car lover...
