SALZBURG SPE­CIAL

911 Porsche World - - Product Call -

Now for some­thing com­pletely dif­fer­ent. And com­pletely mod­ern. Well, not quite com­pletely mod­ern. This is the tech­no­tas­tic 918 Spy­der with added Weis­sach pack good­ness but painted in pe­riod ‘Salzburg’, as spec­i­fied by a cer­tain M. Web­ber as a sort of glo­ri­fied com­pany car. Nice work if you can get it. Of course, with the world and Porsche go­ing as­bo­lutely EV crack­ers, the 918’s combo of nat­u­rally-as­pi­rated engine with elec­tric mo­tor aug­men­ta­tion looks like a de­cent bet for a fu­ture 911 GT3 ap­pli­ca­tion. Per­haps not the next GT3, but odds on for the one af­ter? While you pon­der that prospect, why not snag this 1:18 scale model of the 918. It’s an­other diecast Minichamps spe­cial. Avail­able for €139.95 or a whisker un­der £125 from se­lec­tionrs.com
