993 Companion Aug 3, 2008
The bible for 993 owners. The detail and organization of all the information is incredible. Worth every penny. You can't go wrong buying this book. I cannot imagine the years of research required to pull this book together. Thanks
Almost a shop manual Jun 9, 2008
This book was a pleasant suprize. The black and white photos are pretty good. I would recommend this book for any 993 owner.
Great Book Apr 21, 2008
A very thorough and well versed volume on the last of the air-cooled engines. If one ever wanted to find out any kind of information on this classic car, then look no further. A fairly balanced book, this read should prove it's value to those new to the marque, or are looking for a more detailed answer to any questions they might have.
993 reference Sep 8, 2007
This is the 993 bible; if you have any interest in the 993 you must own this book.
needed addition to 993 repair literature Jun 26, 2007
Overall, a good addition to the literature. Not so detailed that it stands ALONE as a repair resource, but with Pelican, Excellence, Panorama and the various web sites offering 993 information, adds more complete information for the do-it yourself mechanic. Of my reference books, this is perhaps the most comprehensive, specifically for the 993 (other than the factory manuals). An easy read, usually clearly written, yet at times too abbreviated. (Cabrio top repair, for example) First 100 pages deal with "styles" of 993 offered. Contains torque specs. Some info is nothing more than "owners manual" info. Nontheless, I am happy to have added this volume to my library!
