I might have 1 or 2 or 40 that I can show. Let’s get the party started with the Wangan Midnight Blackbird 930 Turbo from AUTOart. A fine model, and one that’s still available at a decent price. If you have the means to get one, do so. Let’s make the theme of this post “Turbo”, and move on to another 930, this time from Norev. I want to swap wheels from a Maisto Speedster to get rid of the off-road look, but maybe it’ll be easier to throw some lights on the hood and make a safari 911, since that seems to be a thing now.

Next up is Welly’s 964 Turbo. A fine budget level model, but unfortunately it’s a little hard to find and is priced beyond what I think it’s worth.

Following the 964 is the 993, this time by UT Models. These models are over 20 years old now, but they still present well, and with patience and a little luck, it’s still possible to score one for not too crazy of a price.

Up next is everybody’s favorite 911 generation, the 996. Excuse me for cheating a bit as I apparently don’t have pics of my 996 Turbo, but the GT2 is basically just a RWD Turbo anyway, right? The models (GT2 and Turbo) come courtesy of AUTOart.

As with the 996, my 997 Turbo has somehow evaded the camera. Which doesn’t make sense as I had it out for this 997 family group shot. It’s the grey one in the middle and comes from Norev.

And with that we wrap up our Turbos with the 991 from Minichamps. Minichamps has been phoning it in with a lot of their recent releases, but this one is generally worthy of the price premium Minichamps models usually command.
