Schuco 450036400 - Porsche 911 S Targa, yellow 1:18 (Limited Edition of 500)
Shows to be in stock at Ajckids
Scale: 1:18 Scale
The long-awaited successor to the Zuffenhausen car brand’s first production sports car, the Porsche 356, was presented in September 1963 at the IAA in Frankfurt under the name Porsche 901. Since three-digit number designations with a zero in the middle were already copyrighted by Peugeot and, as a result, an objection had been made to the “901” designation, Porsche decided without further ado to release the car onto the market under the name Porsche 911. A model name which very soon started to have a magical effect on the motor world and all sports car enthusiasts.
Schuco is going to produce in a limited edition of 911 pieces a miniature model of this Porsche 911 S Coupé to a scale of 1:18.
Just like the other models of the Schuco Edition 1:18, the Porsche 911 S comes with many lovingly crafted details, such as opening and closing doors, a front opening hood and the opening bonnet.
A fine miniature version can be found in the engine bay of the air-cooled, 2.4-litre, 6-cylinder boxer engine which produced an impressive 190HP in the original and made the Porsche 911 S, with its maximum speed of 230km/h, one of the fastest sports cars of its time. The likewise very finely detailed interior of the miniature Porsche is based on its full-size model and shares many details, like the five circular instruments typical of the 911 and the equally characteristic orange-colored needles.
Charlie's Tip: Oh and did I mention the Fuchs wheels? And the famous myth about the key being on the left side... Not for a Le-Mans start (For once Jay Leno is wrong), but to save money on the 356. After that Porsche kept to the tradition. If you have one of these older water cooled 911's in scale 1:1 that you need to sell... Let me know!
