Porsche 959 - 1:18 Scale Diecast Model Car


$ 150.00

It is impossible to overstate the significance of the 959 in Porsche's corporate history. Quite simply, after the creation of the 959, nothing would ever be the same. Conceived as a means to keep the underlying 911 platform relevant for years to come, Porsche packed the 959 with every conceivable technological advancement for the 1980s, including a sophisticated all-wheel-drive system, sequential twin turbochargers, and aluminum-and-kevlar monocoque construction. The resulting product would become the fastest production car in the world for a time, with a top speed of 197 miles per hour, but more importantly, it would point the way for most production-based Porsches for the next thirty years, from the Carrera 4 to the 993 Turbo to today's 918 Spyder. Justifiably recognized as one of the most significant cars ever created, the Porsche 959 has been recreated in a 1:18-scale diecast masterpiece by AUTOart. The complex curvature of the 959's zero-lift body has been captured to perfection in AUTOart's model, as have its monstrous 2.85-liter engine and tech-packed interior.

SPECIFICATIONS: 1:18 scale (approximately ten inches in length). Diecast metal body, features opening trunk lid, doors and hood. Poseable steering.

PERFECT FOR: Porschephiles. '80s fanatics. Game-changers.
