Porsche has released the Porsche book 'Into the Frame'. In the Porsche book you will find the largest collection of classic Porsches and their owners that you will probably find in a book.
Last year, Porsche organized trips for classic cars from the brand. In this case, classical was understood to mean: models that have been out of production for at least ten years. Each of the eight Dutch Porsche Centers had a route in its own region. Along the way the participants were photographed by car photographer David de Jong. All those photos are now included in the book Into the Frame, which is published in a limited edition. Auto Motor Klassiek also rode along, you could read about it in the magazine last spring. The 356 with which we participated can also be seen in the book.
Gijs van Lennep
Of course the cars of owners who did not want that are not included in the Porsche book, but for the owners who did want that something special is now available at the Porsche dealer: a Porsche book with your own car in it. With a special touch: the dust jacket is personalized, so that each participant can find his own Porsche on the cover. At Porsche Center Leusden, the participants were signed and handed over by Gijs van Lennep. Not for nothing, because Van Lennep also tells something about the 911 RSR in the Porsche book.
Porsche drivers who want to follow the route again can do so via the Porsche24 app. That is a special app for Porsche drivers, who are rewarded through the app for what they love doing best: driving. Porsche drivers save points with miles driven via the app, but also by participating in events such as driving training sessions, rallies and trackdays. With these points you earn privileges, ranging from a VIP preview of a new model to a starting ticket for the Tulpenrallye.
More Porsche books in anniversary year
Apart from this Porsche book that is published by Porsche importer Pon, there is no shortage of Porsche books this year. After all, it is 70 years ago that the brand started building sports cars. Two fine examples were published by the German publisher Delius Klasing. One of them has the obvious title of 70 Years of Porsche Sports Cars and has been published in collaboration with the Porsche Museum. Porsche Luftgekühlt by Dennis Adler has also just appeared. Yet it is still (much) too early to say that these are our favorite Porsche books from 2018: the year is still long and we still expect quite a few books in this anniversary year.
