A Porsche thread

137615 Views 2696 Replies 81 Participants Last post by  chappyman66
I've harboured passion for Porsche's way of doing things down many decades, and continue to marvel at the many Porsche slot cars we can buy, or build, that make our hobby such an enormously interesting pleasure.

This thread, I hope, will result in 'everything' Porsche - your models, photographs, memories and yarns. And anything else, of course.

All contributions will be of great interest, as usual, and I, therefore, thank you in advance.

A few pics below to start the ball rolling.

Trisha, isn't the Vegla one from Scaleauto?
Interesting, the design could pass for a Lambo or a Delorean, but as you say Laurence, never would have thought it to be a Porsche…
I can see where mr Musk got his idea for the cybertruck

That last pic is the coolest 😉
Read on another forum some 7 Hirondelles were built, and most survived. Can't say where they are, though.
They were raced by the builder and Rob Slotemaker amongst others. Mostly in NL.

Yes thanks, I think it looks better than the way it is , so I'm leaning towards the Martini side of things! Plus white seems to be easier to see these days for some reason!🤔😉
Fwiw, if you decide to take the Martini road, look up the 935 as it raced at Mugello 1976. That one's bodywork is more like the one you have.
The picture Trisha posted is from later races.
Mugello is the first race with the slant nose, but still with the RSR type rear wheel arches.
