We have a double feature today, to make up for the later-than-usual post. Not only that, I have a bunch of castings left to show and we’re almost at the halfway point of the month. My goal is to cover most, if not all, of them, because they all deserve to be featured. Today, we have a rather excellent pair of models here. Two Porsches of the same era, different styles. Which one will you choose?
As someone who only has very fleeting knowledge of these Porsches, I almost thought they were the same thing, with both of them having very similar profiles. Then, I looked closer and saw that they’re completely different altogether. On the one hand, we have the more shapely 928 S. It’s the luxury sports car designed to be a GT. On the other hand, we have its edgier brother (both literally and figuratively), the 944 Turbo. These are two underappreciated cars that you don’t usually see, read, or hear about. I certainly appreciate them now.
Both of these are done up in Matchbox World Class style. To put it simply, they are just fantastic. None of the quality issues that mar some of the other World Class releases are present here. Only crisp lines, sharp castings, smooth paint, and perfectly printed details to be found with these two. In fact, they’re so good that they make an amateur photographer like me look like a professional. Amongst all of the World Class and Premiere models that I have in my collection now, these two are among the best when it comes to their all-around quality, detail, and execution.
From what I know, the 944 Turbo has also appeared in the Premiere line, in white. It’s a rare release that often commands high prices on the secondary market. Keep your eyes out.
