Synopsis

This book pays homage to the early silver' racing cars that formed the racing pedigree for Porsche's racing achievements. Illustrated exclusively with period photographs, sourced mainly from the Porsche archives, this book evocatively describes the life and times of the racing heroes of the 50s and 60s, who raced theSilver Steeds' - the Porsche Spyders and Coupes. Giving an historic account of the development of these early race cars, the book goes on to describe the models, with each car identified by its chassis type and number; details of key races, drivers, and personal accounts are also included, along with a Foreword by Jurgen Barth. Roy Smith, author of several award-winning motoring books, has given us another unique insight into the world of motorsport - this time into the early race cars of Porsche, the cars that set the company on the way to huge success that is still happening today. This book will prove to be an entertaining read for newcomers and hardened enthusiasts alike.
