English edition.

In this book, across 16 chapters and more than 350 pages, Norbert Singer describes the greatest era of Porsche racing to date from his own unique perspective, that of a visionary race engineer and aerodynamicist, and cunning tactician and interpreter of rules.

From the 917 to the 911 Carrera RSR, to the world championship-winning 935, to the lightest (735 kilograms) and fastest (366 km/h) 911 in history.

Singer also details the background of the three-time Le Mans-winning Porsche 936. Like the Carrera Turbo RSR and the 935, Singer was the project manager for the ground-breaking Porsche 956: the car that wrote Porsche into the motor racing history books.

Singer successfully took the “ground effect” aerodynamic concept used in Formula 1 and applied it to two-seater sportscars. At the time it was pinnacle of Singer’s passionate search for downforce.

Drivers like Jacky Ickx, Stefan Bellof, Derek Bell, Jochen Mass and Hans-Joachim Stuck achieved unthinkable cornering speeds in these 800-horsepower cars, collecting five world championships along the way.

Richly illustrated, with 293 colour and 172 b/w photos, 16 graphics and documents, this book is the first work by the publisher done in cooperation with the Porsche Museum.
