    Great book on the creation of the 997

    I just got "Porsche 911 Enduring Values". The authors are Jutta Deiss, Elmar Brummer and Reiner Schloz. It was printed by Motorbooks International. It is a Porsche authorized book that details the creation of the 997, from clay models to road testing and beyond. If you want to find out more about the 997, this is an excellent source. The list price is $40.00 USD and I think it is available through dealers and some bookstores.

    I think anyone interested in the development of the 997 will enjoy this book. It is a large coffee table type book (9.5" X 12"). It has 168 pages with photos on every page (95% color). If you can't find it anywhere else, I got mine from www.thetunershop.com for $40.

    When I ordered mine in December Amazon.com did not have it yet. You always pay more to be the first on the block to own anything. At least I didn't pay $58.00 that Porsche.com wants for the book.

    Strange, I ordered it in August...

    When I buy books the first place I check is Amazon.com. When I became aware of this book in December I did a search at Amazon and couldn't find it. I entered the title and came up blank. Maybe I did something wrong. Since you ordered it in August, when did you receive it? I noticed today that they have the book as available but show the publication date as March 2005.

    You can buy the book directly from the publisher, Motorbooks (www.motorbooks.com) for only $24.00. Here is the link:

    I just tried the search again as "Porsche 911: Enduring Values" and it didn't find the book. If I enter "Porsche 911 Enduring Values" it finds the book. What a difference a colon makes.

    Oops, so sorry Phil.

    Carrera GT book was what I saw there.

    Re: Great book on the creation of the 997

    amazon.com's site in the US is not correct. they showed the 911 book as shipping in 1-2 days, had a march 2005 publication date, and had an estimated april 2005 ship date. just got confirmation from them that it shipped today (i ordered it today).

    Re: Great book on the creation of the 997

    Thanks Guys, Have my first Porsche on order, a 997S, just ordered the book.... air mail's more than half the cost of the book!!
