After knocking on the door for decades, Germany's Porsche finally stepped into the big time of international auto racing with its Type 917 in 1969. Its phenomenal air-cooled flat-12 engine powered the 917 to 15 wins in world sports-car championship races from 1969 to 1971, after which it was outlawed by a rules change. Included were two wins at Le Mans in 1970 and '71. First built in a series of 25 coupes that Volkswagen chief Ferdinand Piech called the biggest risk he's ever taken in business, the 917 was raced in both short- and long-tailed forms, pumping out 630 bhp by 1971. It went on to even greater glory in turbocharged roadster form in Can-Am racing as the 917/10, series champion in 1972. In '73 the incredible 1,000-horsepower 917/30 Porsche dominated the Can-Am series in the hands of Mark Donohue, who called it "the perfect racing car". The 917 stands proud in Porsche's history as the costly and daring machine that decisively ended the company's underdog status in international motor sport.

Very basic history. Too many versions were omitted. I wish there were color pictures other than on the cover. Even for the price I find it hard to recommend.

This is a nicely produced, 125 page book, which would be a nice addition to any 917 library. It is not long on written detail, but there is enough to tell the story of the car's history from the original 917 to the 917-30. It is all black and white except for the excellent picture on the cover. Most of the pictures are new to me. Good pictures of the flat 12 engine and other parts. The story, mostly in picture captions, covers the 917 from its original form, through the 917-K and 917-L to the spyders and eventually the Can-Am 917-10 and 917-30. A highly recommended book.

Karl Ludvigsen's latest work isn't terribly impressive. After a mere three pages of text, are a hundred-twenty odd pages of photographs of 917s, some new, many familiar. And not one of them, save the cover is in color. Any reader interested in the Porsche 917 would be better advised to try Peter Morgan's book instead. It is full of color, specifications, text, race results, and driver impressions; in short, all that is lacking in Mr. Ludvigsen's.
