While we tried very hard to ensure there are no mistakes in our books, it is impossible to avoid in any publication especially as new information and additional research surfaces after printing. As a responsible publisher, we actively collect and acknowledge corrections for every Parabolica Press title to ensure book owners always have the most up-to-date and correct knowledge.
The following are corrections and clarifications for the Turbo 3.0 book by Ryan Snodgrass. If you have discovered a mistake, please send the details to email@example.com including the page number and a description of what you found.

|53||In March 1977, the Turbo 3.0 price in the Netherlands rose to ƒ97,750, coinciding with Porsche AG raising its prices in Germany.|
|171||As an aside, the only Turbo 3.0 930 chassis ordered without a whale tale and fitted with a standard rear engine lid was 930 570 0162. To compensate for this change in aerodynamics, the rubber front spoiler was also not fitted. Though, the first few 930s left the assembly line without whale tails and were temporarily fitted with standard engine lids. See page 265 of Turbo 3.0 book for 930 570 0016 without tail parked outside the Porsche factory awaiting its final whale tail.|
|267||Style Porsche had wanted to introduce a high-end patina/fade effect as a production option to show off the curves of the Turbo. The first test car was 1975 Turbo 3.0 930 570 0022 with a standard black paint base followed by several coats of paint and clear to produce a gold-bronze patina effect.|
|275||The 1975 Corina Piéch Turbo 930 570 0204 was the second test of the gold-bronze patina effect, with some changes to the formulas and process. Unfortunately it proved way too expensive of a process to ever offer customers, as the body must be painted the base color, then hand painted with bronze metallic/glitter while wet, then with metallic flakes in a first layer of clear coat, and then clear coated again.|
|284||The first Vasek Polak 1975 Turbo VIN should be listed in the body text as 930 570 0047, not 930 570 0057. The photo captions correctly list 0047.|
|475||1976 Turbo 930 680 0522 has now been identified as paint-to-sample VW Ancona Blue (395-9-3) with an all blue interior.|
|492||For 1977 USA Turbo Carreras 930 780 0423–0428 the date of productions should have been listed as 2/77 instead of 2/76.|
