I’m not really a big Porsche fan. The 911s are great cars, but they should be, since they basically start at a hundred grand these days. The problem is they’re a dime a dozen around here, and no one bats an eye except for the souped up versions like the Turbo and GT3. But, there’s one that always gets me going GAWD DAMN, and it’s the 996 generation.
Say what you want about those headlights, but I love them dammit. And those 5-spoke “fan” wheels like the ones shown on this model, which is a GT2, but is also used (I believe) on the 4S and Turbo variants as well. Yesssssssss.
Best 911 ever.
This here is a 1/18 model by AUTOart. It’s an older, used model that I picked up for around eighty bucks shipped and comes with a healthy dose of dust and window scratches as well as a rear hatch that doesn’t fully close. (which by the way was not stated by seller. Whatever.) I guess you could say that’s retribution for not nabbing the Maisto 4S that I saw at Costco a couple months ago. So, not really a bargain, but a model I sorely needed in the collection seeing as I didn’t have any 911s previously.
