The 24th edition is in no way inferior to its predecessors, as this year every enthusiastic fan of this successful title again benefits from the years of experience of countless world-renowned motorsport photographers, the captivating texts of renowned, international journalists and the accuracy with which detailed Porsche statistics have been kept for every race. For some, "Porsche Sport 2016" is just an indispensable continuation of their collection, for others it is what the German sports car legend really stands for: "Pure Motorsport".
This year's stroke of genius once again comes up with 288 uniquely designed pages. The approximately 900 colour photos, some of them in large format on a double-page spread, captivate with their brilliant quality and document the racing action from the start to the finish. All Porsche one-make cups, Carrera Cups, the GT3 Cup Challenges, the Mobil 1 Supercup, the WEC, as well as all endurance races, such as the 24 Hours of Dubai, Daytona, Spa or at the Nürburgring, find space in the inner part of the book. Of course, with a special focus on the biggest success of 2016, when the Porsche 919 Hybrid overtook the Toyota shortly before the finish line of Le Mans, thus clinching the 18th overall victory for the German sports car forge. Finally, a detailed statistic of the individual series tempts everyone to let the results of the successful sports car melt on the tongue once again.
