Porsche Classic has reprinted more than 700 original driver’s manuals, providing first-hand documentation for virtually all its early models. From the 1952 model year 356 to the 911 type 996 the documents are now available from Porsche Centres worldwide.
The documents for older classic Porsches in particular include not only the driver's manual itself, but also extensive technical information, settings and practical tips. From the radio unit number to the vehicle data carrier, the type plate or paint data plate through to the engine number – all identification details and their position are illustrated and described in detail.
Understanding that these booklets have often become worn or are lost over time, Porsche Classic began a process of digitising their original documents. Alongside driver’s manuals, this also includes warranty and maintenance booklets as well as the overviews of types, dimensions and tolerances.
Amongst other things, these documents contain detailed information on settings for the engine and chassis, as well as the body dimensions. Each reprint always matches the original version in terms of the printing, look and quality.
Around 700 driver’s manuals are currently available from Porsche Classic, including editions in various languages and in some cases also for different model variants. The portfolio also includes more than 100 warranty and maintenance booklets. There are also vehicle servicing and care booklets/instructions as well as vehicle wallets that are true to the original.
