Love the Blue Coral car. I have a Ninco...this might make me get a Revo.

Function, form and great beauty, the yellow Porsche above is pretty close to the perfect modern sports-racing car in my eyes.

I painted a 1/24 BRM white kit in the Blue Coral colours - so I am definitely getting that one in the Revoslot - I will also be getting the Pennzoil and another 1/24 kit to do the Pennzoil in 1/24 as well. There is just something about this car that appeals to me. Can't quite put my finger on what it is but I like it

I assumed 'Mericans were pushing the yellow car.🤔

Ooh, but that blue car, though. 🤗

Just looking at the differences, is there a difference between the REvoslot Porsche GT1 and a GT1 Evo ?

Revo

279186


Now take a look at the GT1 Evo from slot.it and also real car. longer and sleeker

279187


279188



Actually a quick google answered my question


911 GT1


The GT1 had very little in common with the 911 (993), only sharing the front and tail light assemblies of the production 911 along with front chassis design

In spite of its 911 moniker, the car actually had very little in common with the 911 of the time, only sharing the front and rear headlamps with the production sports car. However, its frontal chassis was shared with the then (993) 911, while the rear of the chassis was derived from the 962







911 GT1 Evo


The 1997 variant of the GT1, called the 911 GT1 Evo also previewed the 996 generation of the 911 while having improved aerodynamics

Towards the end of the 1996 season, Porsche made revisions to the 911 GT1 in preparation for the 1997 season. The front end of the car was revised including new bodywork which featured headlamps that previewed the all-new generation of the (996) Porsche 911 which would be unveiled in 1997. The revised car was known as the 911 GT1 Evo (or Evolution). As far as performance goes, the car had the same engine as the previous version, but new aerodynamic elements allowed the 1997 version to be considerably faster than the 1996 version - acceleration was better, although the top speed was still around 330 km/h (205 mph) on the La Sarthe Circuit (in the race, the GT1-Evo attained a top speed of 326 km/h). At Le Mans the works cars led the race but did not last the full distance; a privately entered 1996 specification GT1 managed 5th overall and third in its class.

Surely the longer, sleeker car is the GT1/98 as modelled by Slot-it and, originally, Fly. Not the Evo, which was mainly a front end redesign of the original GT1.
