Porsche+Audi in the US had taken a lot of orders for the Porsche Turbo but the cars were slow in coming. For that reason they commissioned this book as a product to placate the intending owners and asked me to write it. It was never sold commercially at the time it was released.

As you say, it has been republished my Mercian Manuals and is available from them.
Indeed, Porsche had the same problem with the 959 when it came out. But this time, they didn't write a book for the customers - they gave them some portfolios of photos of the car. You can find these on eBay from time to time - one of the more rare 959 items to collect.
