Product description

In this work the author does not want to reconstruct the complex and fascinating stories of the Ferrari 166 MM Barchetta and the Porsche 356 N1 Roadster, (on this subject there is already an extensive and detailed literature), but he wants to analyze and understand the genesis of their design, the matrices, the objective and subjective factors underlying their shape in a comparison between two cars that were born with the same objectives and therefore of the same nature: the sporty one and of the same type: the two-seater spider.

When facing the 356 roadster, it was materially and philologically unpossible not to involve the coupé version, the 356 model, in the path; the icon, together with the subsequent 911, of Porsche production and “style”.

Even more interesting was to observe the parallel development of the other car at the center of the analysis: the Ferrari 166 MM. In fact, it is above all in the context of the berlinettas, that the “Italian Style” was particularly articulated and consolidated in that exemplary journey that has been and still is represented by the timeless Italian “Gran Turismo” car.
