From the early start to his death in 1951, Ferdinand Porsche helped build the fundaments of the company that Porsche now is : one of the most powerfull and most influential automotive companies in history. Wolfram Jutta, one of the most renowned German historians, spend several years researching the complete history of the first years of Porsche. Porsche has helped Wolfram Jutta by allowing him full acces to the historical archives and providing him the information he wanted. Only so, Wolfram Jutta mananged to combine the technical, historical, economical and political facts into a rather easy readible story, that tells you the complete history of the first years of Porsche.
Our conclusion after spending hours reading the book is that this is a great addition to anyone who is interested in the early history of Porsche. However, you must master the German language. So far we don’t know about an English translation of the book, but we definitely hope it will come soon.
