“The Fabulous Porsche 917” by Peter Hinsdale. 104 pp. 8 1/2in. x 11 in. (Patrick Stephens Ltd., Bar Hill, Cambridge, CB3 8EL. £5.20).
There seems to be a never-ending emission of books about Porsche cars. This soft-cover tome covers the 917 in its many engine and bodywork variants in text, 204 pictures and detailed tables and charts, including race results from 1969 to 1971. There are pictures of the drivers who were prominent in racing Porsche 917s and the book contains much technical detail and illustration. This is a revised second-edition. There is a touch of advertising in the lists of Porsche-Audi dealers in the USA, which form the end papers.—W.B.
