Hardcover ISBN: 384800366x
The cult brand and the "Made in Germany" cars have stood for the perfect balance of power and elegance--and rightly so: about 70 percent of all Porsches ever built are still on the road today, and to this day, all the generations of those striking cars are still eyecatchers in the streets of the world. The small corporation has been defending its pole position with a great sense of quality and passion. They do not build sports cars in order to win races; rather, they participate in races in order to improve their sports cars. Porsche has won the world's toughest race, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, more often than any other manufacturer. This book portrays both Porsche's unique success stories in the motor sports arena and their boldly innovative design and style. The plentiful highquality illustrations by renowned photographer Rainer W. Schlegelmilch and the informative texts by Hartmut Lehbrink will fascinate any fan of cars and motor sports.

The Car in 2035
Mobility Planning for the Near Future
Paperback ISBN: 8415391269
The Car in 2035: Mobility Planning for the Near Future focuses on the car, the street, and public policy in Southern California. In this collection of essays and images, the car is viewed as both a challenge and benefit to our neighborhoods, cities, and suburbs. Despite rising fuel prices, the automobile will be Southern California's primary form of transportation in 2035 because the region's population will continue to be dispersed widely, and the car offers the best access to the area's tremendous diversity of economic, social, recreational, and cultural opportunities. But the infrastructure will need to accommodate a heterogeneous mix of modes of transportation, including more cars on the road than today.

The Quest to Build the Driverless Car and How It Will Reshape Our World
Hardcover ISBN: 0062661124
A deep dive into the race to develop and perfect the driverless car—an innovation that promises to be the most disruptive change to our way of life since the smartphone—by a veteran insider of the automotive and tech worlds In Autonomy, former GM executive and current advisor to the Google Self-Driving Car project Lawrence Burns offers a sweeping history of the race to make the driverless car a reality. In the past decade, Silicon Valley companies like Google, Tesla and Uber have positioned themselves to revolutionize the way we move around by developing driverless vehicles while traditional auto companies like General Motors, Ford, and Daimler have been fighting back by partnering by with new tech start-ups. It’s not a question of whether the self-driving car will disrupt the automobile industry; it’s a question of when, how, and who will win the race. With the first driverless car likely to hit markets in less than five years, Burns also looks toward the future and explains how this new technology will impact our lives—from removing the hassles of driving, parking, and refueling our cars, to eliminating 90 percent of road fatalities, drastically reducing our carbon footprint, and automating yet another segment of blue collar industries, putting more workers out of their jobs. We are on the brink of a technological revolution that promises to fundamentally change how we interact with our world. A chronicle of the past, diagnosis of the present, and prediction of the future, Autonomy is the ultimate guide to understanding the driverless car and to navigating the revolution it sparks.
