The 10 greatest Porsches ever made

The 959?

What about the 911 2.0 Coupé?

Or the 356 B 1600 GS Carrera GTL Abarth, right?

To the uninitiated, one Porsche model looks a lot like another - a curved descendent of the VW Beetle with little variation in bumps. But to the obsessive, the German car manufacturer has created some of the greatest works of engineering ever to grace the road.

But how to rank them? How to pick out the classics amongst it's legendary line up? It's the tall order we asked of Dieter Landenberger, Director of the Historical Archives of Porsche AG, author of the superb new Porsche Sounds photography book.

From classic racers to one-off specials, these are the greatest Porsches ever made.
