Turbo 3.0 – The Book

Parabolica Press’s second book—Turbo 3.0—dives deep into the development, production and mystique behind the three years of Porsche’s groundbreaking 3.0-liter Turbo models produced from 1975 to 1977. A result of careful research and intensive study at the Porsche factory archives, private collections and inspecting period documentation, this exhaustive compendium attempts to cover everything an owner, restorer, historian or enthusiast would want to know about the dawn of Porsche’s turbocharged supercar. With a foreword by Jürgen Barth, the Turbo 3.0 book explores the history of turbocharging and then dives into Porsche’s development of its turbocharged road and racing cars through interviews with factory engineers, development drivers and racing pilots. The next several chapters delve into a comprehensive exploration of original options and materials, close-up photos of key details, scenes from factory production, coverage of special one-off models, and period motorsports including the production-based Carrera RSR Turbo 2.14 and 934/934.5 turbocharged race cars.

Featuring exceptionally high production quality, the Turbo 3.0 book is printed on 170 gsm silk paper with special wide-gamut CMYK inks, three different spot varnishes, and high-resolution hybrid FM screens for the greatest photo clarity possible.

This is the definitive book about the immortal Turbo 3.0 and is essential reading for anyone who has ever owned, driven or simply lusted after Porsche’s first supercar.

The English-language Turbo 3.0 book is available in two individually numbered editions.
