Porsche 911: The Practically Free Supercar

While this title one isn't as well-known as the books that follow the lives of glamorous F1 drivers and infamous rivalries, it's a great read for anyone interested in owning a Porsche 911 - a car that author Robert McGowan aims to prove isn't as expensive as one might think.

If you dream of owning a Porsche, this book should help you to narrow it down to which models would suit you best, what to look out for and what to expect. A genuinely interesting read for Porsche enthusiasts, but not as polished as most others in this list.
