| The Area71 Slotcars News; Porsche 901 prototype

News from The Area71 Slotcars;
Porsche 901 prototype
3D-Printed 1;32 scale kit
Limited Edition of 300 units
Here are some shots of their pre-production prototype of their stunning Porsche 901 prototype, designed by famous Turkish designer - and personal friend of Marco - Ege Arguden.
His daunting task was to reinvent the 911's design by revisiting its past.
The aim of Porsche 901 was to go back to the roots and capture the essence of the original 911. The design process started by analyzing the original 911. Both in size and individual design elements, I tried to capture 911 in a new way. Signature design elements of 911 such as round headlights and organic body shape were necessary to achieve my goal, yet I tried to modernize these elements with subtle changes.
Like all The Area71 Slotcars, their 1:32 version is modeled as an exact scale replica of Arguden's design and, thanks to the advanced 3DP technology used, all the curves, undercuts, complex geometries, and flawless surfaces are perfectly reproduced with none of the compromises associated with conventional injected molded plastic production.
The Area71 Slotcars Porsche 901 will be manufactured as a kit version in Slotit IL-SW chassis setup, limited to 300 individually-numbered units.
Following the AMG Vision, this car is the second release in their line of prototypes and show cars. They love the one-offs theme and they are currently working on many further models of prototype cars - they will soon publish a set of Championship Regulations for this unique category.
In the next weeks, they will announce the official release date of this beautiful model. In the meantime, you can pre-order yours via PM
