There's a preproduction pic of the upcoming 911, do I see correctly that there's a pinion peeking BEHIND the spur gear? A true rear-engined 911? It looks to be sitting a bit "high" in the chassis so this might be just a reflection of the flash...

Second the opinion that 2005 will be expensive.

Not that i'm complaining, an absolutely superb choice of cars.

1 of each please.

Relieved to see the 911 doesn't have the squashed appearance of the Daytona/GT40. The Porsche 911 looks great to my eyes, superb wheels, pretty shape and the unique motor arrangement should be fun.

A BASF M1 hoorah!

QUOTE I think the gt40 and daytona may have been fly's low point ... models released since then appear to me to be better proportioned again

Very good point, the new Alfa Romeo Giulia GTV looks rather nice and by all accounts these new models, even at this early stage appear to be looking pretty good.

Don't get me wrong the GT40 although IMHO squashed, I do think it is a very nice model and rather ironically, despite this flaw I actually prefer the model over the Scalextric version. The Fly version to my mind still looks the more realistic model.

Is it me but with the Daytona (unlike the GT40) people aren't quite so forgiving of the low roof line? The Daytona isn't exactly flying off the shelves?

Furthermore, somebody somewhere on this board mentioned the Fly BMW CSL is not a good reproduction; not sure whether I would agree. If the shape is out, certainly appears not as noticeable.
