Five Porsche Prototypes

Post by oldirish33 » Wed Dec 26, 2018 1:05 pm

I know some of you will find this article and video interesting on five Porsche prototypes (fairly modern era). While at least one has been modeled in 1/43, you may wish to consider others for your wish list to manufacturers to produce as models.

This Porsche Carrera Speedster Clubsport was made by High Speed a number of years ago.

I have the same model. Fairly simple but reasonably accurate and I've yet to see another model of that car.

Mine is from Spark and as youd expect, is much better

The Panamericana has also been made by Neo

The Spark does look better but for the EUR 2 I paid for the HS it's unbeatable value.
The Pananamericana would be very welcome here.

You know why Italians speak with their hands? Because they have to work a lot on their engines.

Porsche builds a car that is hideous, declares it a prototype and watches the price jump sky high. :lol:

I wasn't aware that the white speedster was a proto, I thought it was an option for a regular production speedster! Now I got a new concept on my wish list (as I love this shape of the 911s).

The Panamericana was also made as kit by Provence Moulage many years ago (plus at least another attempt in white metal - a promo gift), but obviously the NEO release is the most accurate.

I am quite happy that I did not have a chance to see the Cayenne cabrio until now, my eyes are sore since I watched the video :shock: :lol:

The 984 is sort of a car that might end up as an unexpected new release by AutoCult any day!

I like that a lot. But it can’t be a Porsche as it doesn’t look like a Beetle?

Ah, but had this car made it to production, with a larger engine than the 914/6 (2.9 vs 2.0L), 911S brakes, balanced weight distribution it would have been a serious racer let alone a fantastic GT car!

Sounds like real drivers car. The best thing about being in the drivers seat is you can’t see how ugly it is on the outside :D .
