In 1974, to rave reviews, Porsche produced the 930/911 Turbo to the public and set off on a new road. At the same time, the governing body of motorsport introduced a new 'silhouette' formula to sports car racing. Thus the immortal 934 and 935 were born. This book tells the story of the 911 Turbo and its racing cousins, from the 1974 2.1-liter RSR Turbo Carrera to the tube-framed 750 horsepower final variants of the 935. These are the cars which still bring a gleam of pleasure to any of the drivers lucky enough to have sampled their enormous power and, sometimes, their wayward handling!

Review:

To compete a tome of this magnitude is a real labour of love, and the author has shown much patience, love and expertise in putting this book together. It shows in its level of attention to detail, and the clarity of the information given that non-technical people will be able to understand the nuances of what made these cars 'special.' In short, a book I can heartily recommend as a source of knowledge form a magical time in sports car development, for purists and casual readers alike. --Chequered Flag Services

Starkey recounts a fascinating story: his descriptive passages are interspersed with interviews of drivers and owners and much of the historical value of this book lies in the recollections of people such as Nick Faure and John Fitzpatrick and Americans Dick Barbour, Alwin Springer or Al Halberts. Porsche 390 to 935 is a compelling read and a fine record of a period in motorsport which makes today's ultra technical and impossibly expensive hybrid racing and formula E look distinctly pallid: the author hopes his work may help to bring more of these simple, but scintillating Porsches into the historical racing scene and no reader of this inspiring work could possibly disagree. --Kieron Fennelly

Through. That'd be Porsche 930 to 935, the turbo Porsches in a word. Not only does it turn back the history books right the way to the first turbochargers (1905 to be precise), the forced induction ships and World War II planes, but it recounts every single outing of every chassis. That includes the numerous privately prepared and developed cars, and doubles the book's length ... This is a detailed document that celebrates a few Porsche icons. --Motor Sport
