Porsche 911 (964): Enthusiast’s Companion™ review from 911 & Porsche World, April 2004
“This is an encyclopaedia for 964 owners, compiled with obvious personal enthusiasm by author Streather. If the car itself is a triumph of development over design, then the book is a triumph of editing over information. Streather has brought together everything owners might ever need to know about the year by year changes, buying tips, servicing, enhancements and even specialist events.”
This is a buyer’s guide, a maintenance and repair handbook and a technical reference all wrapped into one. It is full of tech tips, service hints and system descriptions, plus lots of DIY repairs collected from all around the world. You will also find an extensive section on 964 race cars and their drivers.
This is a book for the hands-on enthusiast. It provides the information necessary to maintain your 964 to factory standards, gives you the assurance to speak knowledgeably to your service professional, and can provide you with the hot setup for the track.
To bring you this authoritative volume, author Adrian Streather has scoured the globe in search of enlightened information and technical procedures for the 964. Almost every conceivable question you could ask about this revolutionary 911 can be answered using this book.
