Hello Mike,

that was a good question! I think that I found the solution on page 189. Here we find 182 "Turbo S" USA, and on page 190 you can see that 180 were delivered to America and 2 to Canada. So I think that the "s" is missing above?

What do you think?

I think you right - it also aligns with P192 for the 98's with the same sort of table =-> the similar column says "S".

How do we get a hold of the author to confirm?

Cheers,

Mike

It was confirmed to me by Norbert, who created the statistics part!

Ordered two. Thanks for the tip on Google Chrome to translate. Worked like a charm!

I hope that you will like them!

By the way - Porsche Zentrum Inntal/Germany sold an original 993 Turbo Convertible in 2012, but they did not tell me the price! I think it should be one of the rarest cars Porsche ever built!

Unbelievable! Some books need 5 days from Germany to Canada or the US, few books need 2 weeks! But they are all shipped by DHL/Airmail + insurance is included!

Sorry,
Andreas

That is weird, I live in Vancouver as well, and received the book in 5 working days. However, I think mine was on the toss-em line, the package was torn and bashed up, and the edge of the book took a beating. I phoned the post office, there is a whole procedure to go through, so I decided it was not worth the hassle, bent back the dented edge on the book and put it under the tree. I think the insurance is only good if it gets really damaged or lost.

Is there a tracking number for Basal Skull to check where it book is?

Cheers,

Mike

Received my copy with stubbed corners & marks on the cover.

The graphic design, layout and detail is quite good, though I can't say that I'm all that impressed with the images. Didn't see much that I haven't seen before elsewhere (except for the odd picture of the Ford Capri...??).

Still a nice addition to the library.

Hello Mike,

of course there is one! Work in the publishing house continues on 27th on December, and "Basal Skull" will get it ASAP

I agree, I also had a dented edge, I think the packing needs to be a bit more robust, the mail system is brutal on stuff.

Cheers

I ordered mine December 2nd, and hoped to have it by Christmas. But it didn't arrive. Hopefully I will have it by New Years Eve, this way I can stay home and read it.

Received mine last week only about a week after ordering and it's clean-no marks or worn edges-thanks Andreas for your help in ordering it.

Great coffee table book for us!

My only complaint is that there was no information on the truly last air-cooled 911, the 993 GT2 EVO with the twin-plug 3.8L motor that made 600+HP/720Nm, the car on which hyper-tuned 993TT's are based-including mine.

Hello Mike,

you can get a new copy, just mail me!

We have learned a lot in the last few months,

and use much more robust packages rigth now.

We did not expect this brutal mail system outside Europe.

A happy new year to verybody from Berlin,

Andreas
