The Hans Mezger book: Motorsport history at Porsche

911, 917, 908, 936 – for some, these are just three-digit numbers, but for motorsport connoisseurs, these numbers are milestones in motorsport history. And these Porsche model numbers have one thing in common: the chief engineer of the Porsche Motorsport department, Hans Mezger, was behind each of them. For almost 40 years, the passionate, talented and incredibly hard-working engineer not only helped write the history of the sports car manufacturer from Zuffenhausen, but also shaped it.

The most important Porsche engines of this era are his creations: The six-cylinder boxer of the 911, which has long since become an icon, the twelve-cylinder of the 17 Series, which finally brought Porsche the coveted Le Mans overall victory in 1971, the turbocharger suitable for racing and later for everyday use, which made Porsche a pioneer of this technology, and last but not least the TAG turbo engine, which won several world championship titles in Formula 1.

The memories of Hans Mezger

In his autobiography, Hans Mezger tells of his eventful life between the development office and the workshop, between the drawing board and the race track, of unusual special developments – in short: of his tireless commitment to the success of the racing cars from Zuffenhausen. The reader learns from Mezger how the legendary designs were created, gets to know the protagonists of an exciting era and accompanies the boy from the small village of Ottmarsheim, not far from Stuttgart, from his school days to university to Porsche and from there to those places that have a special ring to them in the world of motor racing: Le Mans, Indianapolis, Monaco, Nürburgring.
