“Carrera 2.7 is one of those Porsche books you just cannot put down. It is a perfect example of how to write a modern super detailed and beautifully designed text on a specific car.” “excels in terms of research, writing style, design and the huge amount of contemporary and studio photography” “a fantastic work and an essential for any serious Porsche book collector”
– GT Porsche magazine
"Before reading Carrera 2.7, I had always considered the model to be a tiny aspect of the Porsche 911 story, a stop gap model that bridged the gap between the iconic 2.7RS and the start of the EFI 3.0 and 3.2 litre cars. While that may be one way to consider the model, Ryan Snodgrass’ comprehensive book shows just how pivotal the ‘Euro Carrera’ 2.7 model was, both in the influence over subsequent models and the effect on the 930."
– Historic Racer
“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.”
– Classic Porsche magazine
“Detailed part photos turn this book into an ultimate restoration guide as well as encyclopedic buyer’s reference”
– Road Scholars magazine
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...
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.
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!
Als Fan des Porsche G-Modells muss man dieses Buch einfach lesen. Ich darf mir ein Urteil erlauben, den ich bin der Designer und Grafiker der mit Herrn Snodgrass zusammenarbeiten durfte. Alleine die Tatsache wie viele Freiheiten der Autor mir in der Gestaltung gelassen hat, ist bemerkenswert. Was ich positiv herausstellen möchte: die Anzahl und Aufmachung an Tabellen und Diagrammen, die technische Zusammenhänge gut erklären. Auch der Umfang der Recherche ist bemerkenswert und auf selbem Level wie bei dem Carrera RS Buch von Gruber/Konradsheim. Was sich wahrscheinlich viele Leser wünschen: eine Auflistung aller Chassisnummern mit der jeweiligen Ausstattung. Die ist leider nur für die 1976er Sondermodelle vorhanden. Heutzutage ist es eben nicht mehr so einfach eine Freigabe dafür zu erhalten. Auch das Motorsport Kapitel ist lesenswert. Porsche betrieb zwar keinen Werksmotorsport mit dem SC, aber die privat eingesetzten 2.7 Liter Carreras hat der Autor detektivartig aufgespürt. Hervorzuheben ist die große Anzahl an bisher unveröffentlichtem Bildmaterial (und die Bilder sind auch schön groß abgebildet). Das Buch kann ich wärmstens empfehlen.
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..
