From the company's earliest days in the 1930s, the book gives a brief history of the glorious Auto-Union Grand Prix cars designed by Prof Porsche before detailing the miseries and triumphs of the company in the aftermath of war. Throughout the late 1940s and early 1950s Porsche struggled to survive, but unshakeable faith in the design of the 356 led to success in both circuit racing and rallying. The majority of rallying successes during the 1950s were largely achieved by privateers, without help from the factory. Ferry Porsche in particular considered it more important to build racing cars for circuit events, while wealthy enthusiasts clearly enjoyed proving the true versatility of these VW-derived cars by using them in international rallying. With the advent of the 911 in 1964, Porsche had produced a car with the potential to win sporting events at all levels, but it took until 1967 for this to be demonstrated. With its superior traction on slippery surfaces the 911 would go on to win the Monte Carlo Rally, and other significant international events, many times, while also taking class honours in the Targa Florio, Le Mans 24 Hours and other great classics. In the 1970s, when it seemed that more sophisticated rivals would bury the 911's rallying career forever, the car made several comebacks, even winning the Paris-Dakar Raid in the 1980s. The 911's sporting record speaks for itself, and demonstrates that the car designed by Butzi Porsche – work began on the project as early as 1959 – is the finest and most versatile of all sports cars. Meredith's book is written with affection, appreciation and authority – and criticism where it is due – and will make an invaluable addition to any rallying or Porsche enthusiast's library.

Before yesterday's dream car became today's SUV, the reputation of Porsche as a manufacturer of fine sports cars was established. It started with the ideas of Dr. Ferdinand Porsche, and a world best seller that spawned a revered line of sports cars. The Porsche 356 and 911 dominated their classes in international racing, leading to more specialized designs that brought glory to the marque, most famously at Le Mans. Porsche's success was based on excellent engineering. The firm's design consultancy has brought automotive innovation. Such excellence has been centered upon Weissach, the go-to place for companies needing a high tech helping hand. Commercial achievement is based on image too. Here, Porsche has carefully chosen its models, and the way they have been sold and promoted. The result, is a unique position in public perception and media coverage. Even during the golden air-cooled era, Porsche wasn't afraid to experiment. The Square Porsche and front-engined coupés, all courted controversy. However, Zuffenhausen believed a Porsche was a Porsche, and soon others did too. The company's tremendous influence in design and engineering has even inspired artistic creation. Like the cars, they represent an inseparable combination of style and substance. Cranswick on Porsche is a personal study of the designs and people behind the Porsche marque during its golden air-cooled era.
