Oh! Good a Cheetah!! I can stop bidding ridiculous amounts for a Cox & just wait a couple of years until MRRC brings out that little gem. I hope it is more similar to the Cox version than the Strombecker. Did somebody say Scarab? I do not recall them announcing that previously? Please tell me it's true!!!!!

My pick for the Porsche 935 to be produced would be the LeMans Gp 5 winner of 1976. If they use that red can motor, it will probably drive like the real thing too!



Here's another from Exoto, a 934 from '77. I would like to see these as well.

The prototype of the MRRC Toyota Celica, presented at the Nuremburg Toy Fair in February 2003, was in fact in the Schnitzer Rodenstock livery:-

The preparation of a Toyota racing car by Schnitzer seemed to be at odds with the company's long running association BMW. Harald Ertl drove the current MRRC release, the blue car, while Rolf Stommelen drove the red car.

Kind regards

Schnitzer entered BMW's as well. In 1977 they had two turbo 2002's (sponsored by Rodenstock) and one year later Harald Ertl became champion on a turbo 320 (sponsored by Sachs).

Rich,

Regarding the "flat nose" 935, save for a very few exceptions, they all are !

LS,

there was a 935 with a similar livery in 1977 as well. They finished third overall if I remember well (Claude Ballot Lena being one of the two drivers).

@ Russel - FYI - these pictures are still my courtesy - even if DAvid does not always mention the source of his information

Just verify it here
But without any doubt - if MRRC continues what they began last year they'll get a good part of my slotcar-money from this year

This is the variant I mean. All the pictures I've seen of 935s Racing have a very different back end, apart from one pic in peter morgan's book on the 956, where it has that tail, with the traditional 911 headlight design...

was this a show car, that changed before it hit the racetrack?

compared to following the evolution of the 917 and 956, this is PhD level stuff...

Rich,

The car on the picture is the 935 from the Mugello race (flat nose with round lights and rounded tail).

Since there was some controversy about the nose, Porsche brung a 935 with a traditional nose (and rounded tail) for the race at Vallelunga. The private Egon Evertz team raced a similar car.

When Porsche got the green light for the flat nose, they brung it back and they put a square tail as well. Somtimes the nose would have 4 front lights instead of two. Thta's the number 40 car.

The customer car for 1977 (and 1978) used the same body (flat nose, two front lights and square tail). Some added an additional aerodynamic piece under the door (it's called "marche pied" in french).

Thanks for the link Thomas !
