Porsche: The Engineering Story Hardcover – February 15, 2008. by. Jeff Daniels (Author). Find all the books, read about the author, and more. It's a bit daunting to think of doing a book that would do justice to the topic of engineering, which after all, is the heart of any Porsche. I would say Daniels succeeds to a great degree by not only dissecting the actual technical aspects, but also discussing the politics and marketing decisions behind each new idea.

Porsche: The Engineering Story, by Jeff Daniels

Porsche: The Engineering Story, by Jeff Daniels. I have two of his prior books (Driving Force, and Modern Car Technology). Both are fantastic, with clear, in-depth explanations and many high quality technical illustrations. All three are published by Haynes Publishing, which gives you a sense of what to expect. com: Porsche: The Engineering Story: Books: Jeff Daniels. Over the years, Porsche has developed a reputation for technical innovation and for using cutting-edge technology in its road cars.

I have the Daniels book and It is OK. Not a whole lot of new info for me but there are a lot of cut-away pictures and many other archive type pictures I had not sen before. Plus I like the 996 GT3 on the cover!

When you say Porsche, you say 911 - don't you? Yet the 911 itself is not a car, but a designation covering a range of cars back to the 1960s - a range which has evolved, and which its customers refused to let die, despite the engineering drawbacks of its layout. Inevitably, this book is partly devoted to the way in which generations of engineers have worked at overcoming those drawbacks. But it is also about a wealth of other engineering programmes, some of which made it to production and others which, for various intriguing reasons, didn't. From the still-born Volkswagen EA266, through the ill-starred 914 and the front engined 924 and 928, to the modern Cayenne, and much else besides - it is all discussed here. Over the years, Porsche has developed a reputation for technical innovation and for using cutting-edge technology in its road cars. This book travels chronologically through Porsche's technical history with each chapter starting with a crucial point in the company's evolution. From Dr. Porsche's preparation of high-powered prototype Beetles for competition purposes, to the technology incorporated in the latest Cayenne and Carrera GT models, as well as the latest 2005-model 911, the reader is taken on a fascinating journey through the Porsche archives, revealing many previously unknown behind-the-scenes details of the company's engineering story.

The late Jeff Daniels brought excellent credentials to this project, as a long time writer for the Autocar and author of many other engineering pieces. It's a bit daunting to think of doing a book that would do justice to the topic of engineering, which after all, is the heart of any Porsche. I would say Daniels succeeds to a great degree by not only dissecting the actual technical aspects, but also discussing the politics and marketing decisions behind each new idea. The chapters are nicely divided to delineate each model series and he covers a lot of ground with text that is clear, with technical explanations easily grasped by the layman. Because of the sheer volume of data, it's not surprising that a few facts get garbled, as in the 911L of 1968. For the most part, these are quibbles only a rabid enthusiast would be concerned about. It's interesting that he devotes only few paragraphs to the 912, when in fact it outsold the 911 during its years of production. One other gripe is that for the amount of information contained in the book, it should have at least three times as many illustrations. Visual aids would have been a boon to digesting much of this data. The book is fairly current, with models through the 997 included. Nicely packaged with a clean layout and good paper, it's a good addition to any Porsche library.

Good reference

I liked the pictures, the text is more organized and has less fluff, as compared to the Leffingwell book. But the depth is missing...

I appreciated the detail this book went into on the mechanical and engineering side of the car. It was nice to see the transparent engine and drivetrain photos. Most of the books are alot of pretty pictures, I've seen enough of those.

Being a Porsche fanatic I could find in this book a lot of details that I couldn't find before in other publications. Details mentioned does not refer only to mechanical details but historical also.
