The only one that I have ever come across is the Ferrari 512 BB Boxer.

There is an old 1/32 scale model kit made by Entex that can be made into a slot car if your not afraid of a bit of work.




Here are some pics of one that I built a few years back




There are tons of other Exotic Road Cars available, unfortunately not the ones tht you are looking for.

If you broden your want list, I could probably help you out.

Here are some of the Exotic Street Cars in my collection;





You can see more pics of the cars that I have built and collected over the years here;
Gordo's Gallery

If you look through the pictures you will see some photos that show more detail of how I built the 512 Boxer.

As far as the Entex kit goes, they were made back in the 1970's or early 80s I believe.
You can find one or two of them a year on Ebay.

If your interested in discussing any of these cars in more detail feel free to PM me.

Oops! I didn't see the Testarossa on your list.

Revell made a 1/32 scale static kit of it back in the 1980's.

Here is a slot car conversion that I did.



It's not a very good representation of the real car, but at least it exists.




Also I see that you don't want an SCX 288 GTO, but until someone else makes one better, it's all that we have.




Good luck on your quest!

P.S. Check your mailbox, I sent you a PM!

A few others on your list are also available in 1/32:-

Ferrari 308 - Scalextric released a version a couple of years back

Porsche 935DP - There's a gent on ebay who does resin Porsches, one of his cars is the 935 similar to the Dage Sport version with the Flatnose and 930 Turbo body.

Renault 5 Turbo - I believe A2M resin did this car, worth checking ebay France and Spain.

Not aware of a Maserati Bora, but Airfix did an Maserati Indy in 1/32.

Entex also did a fairly crude Maserati Bora, the sort of kit intended for a wind up motor. I have one and seem to think it was Entex while I am sitting at work in any case.

I would like to find their Pantera model but will just wait for the one being made commercially this year by Scaleauto (?).

Cheers,

Dave
