New 917 Book, Porsche 917 x 17: The Cars and Drivers in Studio


A new book about my favorite race car of all time.

Written by renowned automotive photographer Jeff Zwart, it consists of 190 color and black and white photographs – “Using dramatic angles and controlled lighting, Zwart provides a fresh perspective on these iconic cars. He reveals each 917’s distinctive characteristics and patina, and shows artful technical details from inside the cockpit, chassis, and engine compartments. These photographs are accompanied by engaging portraits and vivid recollections from 15 Porsche drivers—including Derek Bell, Vic Elford, Brian Redman, and Hurley Haywood—who look back on the anticipation, fear, and excitement they felt driving the 917″.

 Looks like a must have for those of us who love this car! To get your copy as I am visit: David Bull Publishing
