Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whoever coined the phrase “Getting there is half the fun,” must have owned a sports car or three. The dude who said, “It’s the journey, not the destination,” was probably driving a Porsche or a Ferrari at the time. Sports cars are about pure driving pleasure, and 365 Sports Cars You Must Drive  is a celebration of that pleasure. From hyper-performance German supercars to classic British roadsters, from famed marques such as Ferrari, Porsche, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Honda, and Chevrolet to all-but-forgotten models like the Cheetah, Bricklin SV-1, and the Crosley Hotshot, authors John Lamm, Larry Edsall, and Steve Sutcliffe put you in the driver’s seat of 365 unique sports cars, each with a road to travel, each with a story to tell. How many have you driven?

Synopsis:

This book provides capsule overviews and fun facts about the greatest, oddest, most beautiful, and most ill-considered sports cars of all time. How many have you driven, dreamed about, or shuddered at the thought of?

Synopsis:

Imagine if you could drive a different sports car—any sports car—every single day for a full year. Which ones would you choose?
 
The 365 sports cars profiled in this book range from the awesome to the awful, from the brilliant to the boneheaded, from automotive perfection to vehicular incompetence. Authors John Lamm, Larry Edsall, and Steve Sutcliffe tell the story of each one with humor and reverence, giving you the history, the specs, and the experience of driving some of the greatest and lamest sports cars of all time. How many have you driven?

Synopsis:

Sports cars make up one of the most beloved automotive genres for car fans. From towering icons like Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, and Corvette to everyman sportsters from Triumph, MG, Sunbeam, and Miata to oddballs like Crosley, Sabra, and DB, sports cars inspire passion and strong opinions as few other vehicles on the road could. This book, 365 Sports Cars You Must Drive, provides capsule overviews and fun facts about the greatest, oddest, most beautiful, and most ill-considered sports cars of all time. How many have you driven, dreamed about, or shuddered at the thought of?
