With nearly three hundred pages of glossy, full-bleed photos, teNeues' latest book on Porsche is the ultimate homage to the luxury car brand's history of style, design and performance. Bound in a hot-pink foil cover and at a whopping 11.5" x 14.5", the larger-than-life look at the legendary sports car makes a standout addition to a coffee table or the perfect gift for any Porsche enthusiast.

Twenty-four chapters, divided into categories such as "Red," "Origins," "Inside Out," and "Birds-Eye View," explore every angle of every model. Each page—filled with bold statements and splashed with nostalgic spreads—bears the mark of powerhouse publisher teNeues.

Edited by esteemed commercial photographer Frank M. Orel (much of whose own work graces the pages of the book), his forward sets a "turbocharged" tone for the collection of "images that attest to raw power, creativity and aesthetics."
