This volume starts with the introduction of the SC series and the 3.3 litre Turbo, before going on to cover the 3.2 litre Carreras and the early 959. A process of continuous evolution has kept the 911 fresh for nearly 40 years, while impeccable build quality has ensured that most of even the very earliest cars have survived as desirable and usable classics. This is the third volume in a set of books which will chronicle in definitive depth the history of the evergreen 911, from the earliest design studies to the water-cooled cars of today.
