Three generations of the Porsche family have defined automobile history, in particular the saga of the sports car. This tale spans 110 years from the Lohner electric car, the first hybrid vehicle, to the latest from Porsche, the new Panamera touring car--exciting cars, whose forms and names are known to all. Frank Orel and Elmar Brummer take us on a fast-paced trip back in time, combining a collage of distinctive sports cars, historical events and Porsche history, all together. This playful chronology is distinguished by its boldly original design.
