Porsche Carrera follows the development and design of the Carrrera car dynasty, from the origins of the Carrera line in the 550 and 356 models through the highly tuned race cars of the 1960s to the largely hand-crafted, air-cooled cars of the 1970s and the 1980s. The book features detailed profiles of all Carrera models, including roadgoing and race models, prototypes, special builds and rare cars; in-depth explorations of the engineering and tuning of the cars and buyer's guides for the different models. Also included are a series of interviews with racing drivers such as Sir Stirling Moss, Derek Bell, John Surtees and Gijs van Lennep, and key Carrera figures such as designer Richard Soderberg and Klaus Bischof, head of the Porsche Rolling Museum. Foreword by Jurgen Barth, and over 400 colour photographs, many specially commissioned.

Ross Bentley. Race teams have discovered great benefits can be derived from "tuning" their driver to perform at his/her full potential. Thus, this book is for everyone who works with a driver: engineers, crew chiefs, team owners, mechanics, and the driver's parents. This unique book instructs the driver's support team how to prepare and communicate with the driver so the driver delivers the best performance in races, practice sessions, and off-track team functions. Written by veteran racer and driving coach Ross Bentley, this book helps the driver's support team devise effective approaches to "tuning" their driver. It will help them identify techniques that do and don't work with their specific driver. The result should be better communication and a driver who is "tuned" for success.
