This substantial book tells the story of the first water-cooled Porsche 911, the 996 series. It describes the concept of the new model and why it had to be so different from the earlier air-cooled models. All of the new technology included in the 996 is described, much of it derived from the water-cooled sports car and Formula 1 engines designed and raced by Porsche before the 996 was produced. It is a comprehensive history of this milestone model, as important in the evolution of Porsche production cars as the first 356 and 911 models in their time.
