I have combined my profession, graphic designer, with my interest or rather my obsession for classic automobiles.
Ten years ago I published my first book on the Alfa Romeo 'Alfa 75': 'Alfa 75 & Milano: driven to be different'. It turned out to be a comprehensive book on this sporty Italian saloon and it was very well received.
After trading in my Alfa 75 3.0 V6 for my childhood dream car, a Porsche 911, I felt the urge to write a book on this Porsche 964, as it was known internally. I began to work on this project three years ago. With information provided by the lead exterior designer of the 964, Benjamin Dimson, and with the cooperation of Jens Torner of the Porsche Museum Archive in Zuffenhausen, I have tried to create the most dedicated book on this unique sports car. I hope you all will enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it!"
