Heres a quick way of getting those Revell Kits on the track and it really works well
All you need is a motor ,a guide,an old proslot inline mount and a ninco rear axle .
First cut a hole in the pan to clear the gear fit the Revell wheels on the ninco axle ,they are an exact fit build up the reare end of the kit ,take the proslot mount and cut off the axle carrier ,clip the motor in and glue to the pan , drill a hole for the guide and cut a semi circle out to clear the wires fit the revell front wheels .I added magnets front and rear as I was using the Revell tyres ,which seem to work quite well ,I also drilled the rear of the pan to take body screws but kept the push fit at the front.I was unable to use the interior as it fouled the motor so I used one of my own vac forms , but a piece of tissue with a driver stuck on will work as well . Total time to build including writing this article and track testing about 2 hrs. Welcome to the world of scratch building give it a go its a blast.

Started the side winder option on the Audi already Rob I think it will let you fit the original interior but a vac form would be better for performance

Wayne all the parts came out of my bits box total cost £7.99 ,dont see any scx cars at that price ,but I see what you mean , for any one who doesnt have a large collection of spare parts it is cheaper not to build but its more satisfying to do so.
Have fun with the Porsche .

Rob heres how Ive done the side winder ,just cut the rear axle posts out and make a slot for the gear then stick some bearings on the uprights to stop the axle falling out I just used a bit of thick plasticard with a 3/32 hole in,I used an old proslot spur gear and just glued the motor to the chassis pan ,I had to cut a bit of the strengthening webs away to clear the pinion and the end bell ,The motors a bit of a hybrid made up from an old oz race motor and a slotit v12,tyres and wheels are from the kit .As yet I haven't finalised magnet positions but I will probably stick one as near to the rear axle as I can and one just behind the guide.
