Brilliantly informative for the novice owner and enthusiast!!!

I really enjoyed the plethora of information that laid out the differences in the models. I have always loved the brand but the enthusiasm of the author for these cars was contagious, as it appears it was his first love. I had my reservations on the title, but I am now completely convinced that it is extremely appropriate and accurate. This book will also appeal to any Porsche owner as the author in no way expresses any elitist attitude and only relays his love for P-cars in general. One point of contention I expected was to have difficulty in understanding the narrator but it was perfect even for a rural American like myself. I highly recommend this book to anyone that has an interest in purchasing and owning one of these fine German driving machines. Two thumbs up👍🏼
