The book on the Porsche 956 001 prototype as a limited edition

The Porsche 956 001 was the first drivable prototype and thus the starting point for the construction of a total of well over 100 examples of the 956/962 series. The magnificent book “Porsche 956 001 – Creating a Legend” is a lavishly designed English-language monograph on this legendary racing car, which describes the history of the vehicle in detail. From the basic considerations for use in Group C and the creation of the Porsche 956 001, through all the test drives and endurance runs as well as the racing entries, to its use as a test vehicle and the owner history, no significant aspect is left unconsidered.

The book on the Porsche 956 001 prototype as a limited edition

Numerous protagonists of the Porsche 956 project have their say, including Peter Falk, Norbert Singer, Valentin Schäffer, and Jürgen Barth. In addition, forewords by Norbert Singer and Derek Bell take the reader back to the era of fascinating sports car races in the 1980s.

The texts are supplemented by the reproduction of numerous protocols from the test and trial runs as well as other original documents, thus conveying an impression of the complexity of the development of the Porsche 956 in an extremely authentic manner.

The volume, which has a modern layout, is opulently illustrated. The photographs, some of which are in large format, not only show the development, test drives and racing history of the 956 001, but also document its technical details and the special features of this one-of-a-kind car through outstanding current photographs of the racing car.
