Porsche - Cars with Soul by Gui Bernardes
In Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen, August 1939, the 60K10 project, under the supervision of one Professor Ferdinand Porsche, builds a car in anticipation of a race, Berlin to Rome, that will never take place. With this model, the idea for a light and aerodynamic car, with a small engine but remarkable performance was born. Nine years later this idea bore fruit and the company released their first automobile, the 356, which would launch the company into automotive history. Porsche - Cars with Soul tells the story of Porsche, from the unique perspective of the cars, to the most significant events and races of the marque's celebrated history.
