The memoirs of the legendary racing engineer: “Norbert Singer – Porsche Rennsport 1970 – 2004”.
In this wonderful book, Norbert Singer describes the greatest era of Porsche racing from his point of view in 16 chapters on more than 350 pages. In other words, from the perspective of the visionary racing engineer and aerodynamicist, the shrewd rule interpreter and tactician. From the 917 to the 911 Carrera RSR to the world champion Porsche 935-a radical interpretation of the 911 theme that produced, among other things, the lightest (735 kg) and fastest (366 km/h) 911 in history. Singer also tells of the hair-pulling campaign that led to the three-time Le Mans-winning Porsche 936.
40 Years of Porsche Racing, narrated by Norbert Singer and written up by Wilfried Müller, who is known to motorsport enthusiasts for his biographies of Peter Falk and Walter Röhrl, among others.

The book about Norbert Singer – Porsche Rennsport 1970-2004
“The transmission of the 917 should survive the 24 Hours of Le Mans at a healthy temperature. The cooling system must not create any additional drag. So: go for it.” That was, mutatis mutandis, the first task of freshly minted aerospace and automotive engineer Norbert Singer when he started working in Porsche’s race development department in the spring of 1970.
