The legend lives!The international bestseller – a must-have for sports cars enthusiasts – was already sold more than 30,000 times and is now available in a revised and updated version. In his books, René Staud grants sex appeal to lifeless objects. The introduction of the Porsche 901 at the IAA 1963 marks a milestone in the history of automotive industry. Hence, Peugeot held the patent on the 0 in the middle of type descriptions the name had to be changed at short notice. But even that didn’t stop the triumph of the 911 on his way to become a sports car icon. The success story extends from the archetype via the Carrera 2.7 RS – the fastest serial car of its time with the characteristic rear spoiler, the so called “Entenbürzel” – to the current Generation 911. Available in five languages (GER | EN | FR | RUS | CN). “If two multiplied with two makes four then driving pleasure multiplied with design makes exactly 911. There is no other car that transports the evolution of driving in his most beautiful existence, in a more consequent way than the first 911 in the 70ties up to the present day 911. And many of them accompanied me in a very close way – in professional-, but also in private life. 50 years later, when I started building the present monument for the 911, I really thought that – from a photographical point of view – it would be done with 25 icons, starting in 1967. Eventually, I ended up with more than 100 cars just because I didn’t want to miss a single important one. If I would have had the possibility to show every car that would have deserved the honor, I would have ended up with more than a Million 911s. All of them would have been worth to be presented since every single built 911 is an icon itself. Today, tomorrow and forever.” René Staud on the occasion of the book launch.
