Porsche's 356 Carrera 2 clocked in at a price nearly double that of a standard-issue 356, but those who shelled out the extra dough were rewarded with a 130-horsepower, four-cam flat four with dead-solid reliability and 130-mile-per-hour capability. Carrera 2s were dominant in small-bore sports car competition during the early 1960s, and with only around 100 produced in total, they have emerged as one of the most coveted of all early Porsche variants. The 1963 Porsche 356 Carrera 2 in 1:43 scale diecast metal by Maxichamps is certain to be similarly coveted by model Porsche collectors. Balancing excellent detail and affordable pricing, it features charming "steelie" race wheels and finely executed chrome trim.
