About Us

Around the world, Porter Press International is renowned for publishing top-quality motoring books. Founded in 2005 by acclaimed automotive author and Jaguar expert Philip Porter, it is now firmly established as a leading motoring publisher. The flagship ‘Great Cars’ series has won numerous awards, with subjects including the prototype lightweight Jaguar E-type and Ross Brawn’s Ferrari 250 GT short wheelbase, and its new sister series ‘Exceptional Cars’ is already garnering widespread praise. ‘Profiles’ will be launched later in 2017 with the first Porter Press book to feature an Aston Martin.

‘Great Cars’ Series Editor Mark Hughes is widely respected, being a former editor of Autosport and Classic & Sports Car, and works closely with top designer Andy Garman, who has led the series’ design from its inception. Authors include Doug Nye, Ian Wagstaff, Keith Bluemel, Mick Walsh, Chas Parker, James Page, Rinsey Mills, J. Mac Hulbert, Richard Heseltine, Chris Rooke, Mike Gould and Philip Porter, several of whom have won the Guild of Motoring Writers’ Montagu of Beaulieu Trophy.

Porter Press is proud to have worked with motoring stars Murray Walker, Martin Brundle and Stirling Moss, the latter being the subject of Philip Porter’s hugely popular Stirling Moss – the Definitive Biography Volume 1, published in 2016.

Future Porter Press publications include ‘Great Cars’ editions on a double Le Mans-winning GT40 and three Bugattis, together with books published in collaboration with five-time Le Mans winner Derek Bell and legendary designer Gordon Murray. Each new volume confirms Porter Press International as the publisher of choice for discerning motoring enthusiasts.
