Porter Press International was formed by leading automotive author Philip Porter in 2005. Since then, PPI has become established as a publisher of top class books for discerning enthusiasts. In 2013, the vastly experienced and very highly regarded Mark Hughes (former Editor of Autosport and Classic & Sports Car, and Editorial Director of Haynes) joined the PPI team. Andy Garman has designed all the PPI books and is another
extremely valued member of the team. PPI is proud to have worked on books with Sir Stirling Moss, Murray Walker and Martin Brundle. The unrivalled team of PPI authors includes Doug Nye, Ian Wagstaff, Keith Bluemel, Mick Walsh, Chas Parker, Chris Rooke, Mike Gould and Philip Porter.
The PPI offices are situated in a restored, thatched barn in Worcestershire, in Central England, with a small base in Chelsea. The in-house team includes Louise Gibbs and Abigail Humphries who have been with the company for many years and play invaluable roles.
PPI has recently launched several new book series, Great Cars & Exceptional Cars and a new classic car research division. Exciting times!
