Summary

Paul Frere, the highly respected author, sadly died in February 2008 aged 91, so another Porsche expert of similar standing is needed to take over his mantle and carry out the next update on the book. Tony Dron is the ideal candidate and, very pleasingly, he regards the job as an honor and is happy to take it on. Le Mans in 2011 marks the 60th anniversary of Porsche's participation in the Le Mans 24 Hours. This anniversary is an ideal opportunity to provide a detailed study, packed with photos, narrative and data, of Porsche's part in the world's greatest motor race.

Author Biography

The late Paul Frere -- engineer, writer and former top racing drive--drove virtually every Porsche 911 variant, and was regarding by Porsche almost as part of the family.  He carried out the last update of his book at the age of 88, but sadly died in February 2008 at the age of 91.

For the ninth edition, the torch passes to Tony Dron, who echoes Frere's special qualities in so many ways that he is without doubt the best writer to take over the task of updating his esteemed book.
