Porsche: Excellence Was Expected is a monumental book which chronicles the daily drama, the trials and errors, the brilliant successes of one of the world's most revolutionary and sophisticated sports and racing cars. The story begins at the inception in Gmund, Austria, where Professor Ferdinand Porsche and his staff of engineers and designers had taken refuge in the last months of World War II and where, in 1948, the first Porsche roadster appeared. Page after page then unfolds, jam-packed with information, facts, stories, events that forged the evolution of this world-famous marque. Everything is here - every model, every masterful achievement that was accomplished in three short decades and that has culminated in the newest Porsche, the 928.
This book is precise, detailed, authoritative to a degree that will please and satisfy the most critical reader. Above all this book is the story of Ferdinand Porsche's dream of creating a superior competitive sports car and of the determination of his son, Ferry Porsche, to move that dream into reality. For the first time full insight is given to Ferry's contribution to the world of sports and racing cars. His pursuit of excellence, his refusal to accept anything less than perfection in metal or men, is felt in every page of the book as it is in every model of the car.
