TTITILLATION

911 Porsche World - - Product Call -

Remember the good old days? You know, when Porsches were Mezger pow­ered and 500hp was a very large num­ber in­deed. What with Porsche now mak­ing a 700hp 911 and even nat­u­rally as­pi­rated mod­els hit­ting the 500hp mark, the sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion 997 Turbo al­most seems quaint. In re­al­ity, it was mighty in its day and it will still ut­terly oblit­er­ate vir­tu­ally every other mov­ing ob­ject on the pub­lic road. So why not pon­der what surely qual­i­fies as time­less per­for­mance cour­tesy of this 1/18th scale model from Norev. Fin­ished in Ma­cadamia metal­lic, it cap­tures all the gen 2 Turbo's sig­na­ture de­tails, in­clud­ing those bad-ass vents, the wing and the mon­ster cen­tre-lock al­loys. The price? A mere ba­gatelle at €64.95 in­clud­ing VAT or within spit­ting dis­tance of £58. Get hold of your copy from se­lec­tionrs.com.
