Teutonic Tuesday: Der letzte luftgekühlte Turbo

Illustration for article titled Teutonic Tuesday: Der letzte luftgekühlte Turbo

Das ist kein schwarz! Es ist Tannengrün! Or rather: that's not black, just a real dark green. And yes: It's the 993 we all love so much, the last 'real' 911 for a lot of Porsche aficionados.

And obviously it's a Turbo with that big fixed wing on it's back.

There's not a lot to tell about this one that you all don't know already so let's just say it's a Minichamps 1/43. And it's a bit beaten, it clearly had to undergo the distress of a lot of rehousing (mirror missing, antenna disappeared, Porsche logo vanished). Speaking of which: I'm getting the keys of my new house this week so my posts could be somewhat limited next couple of weeks with all this home improvement to be done. And yes: the packaging of my diecast I'll be doing myself this time, thank you.

Does anyone know a mechanic who can fix this mirror-issue? I sure hope Minichamps does spare-parts...

Just the plain grey interior bugs me: This one should have tartan seats. Obviously.

Last week's Teutonic Tuesday was epic with a lot of entries, I hope you all won't disappoint me this week.

Can't wait for my next 911 to arrive as I've got one coming over from the US (thank you Philipilihp!).
