Porsche 911 / 964 Turbo 1/24 Diecast Metal Model by Welly

$ 22.99

This model of the 911/964 is about 6.75 inches long, 3 inches wide and 2.25 inches high. It is highly detailed, with beautiful body paint and accurate markings. Welly does very high quality models and this one is not the exception. headlights, taillights and turn signals are made of separate plastic pieces which makes the whole model look very realistic. Moreover, side mirrors and windshield wipers are also made of separate pieces. 

 

Doors can open to reveal a very detailed and accurate interior with some touches of color on parts such as seats, seat belt buckles and even on the instrument panel. Models are usually made with the windows "rolled down" so that one can open the doors, but in this model the windows are up. It turns out that the model includes a little stick/handle with a little scoop/hook that would loop into the door handle and open it. The engine compartment (at the rear) can be opened and the engine is nicely represented. To add more details, engine hood is grilled, one can see the engine inside from the proper angle. Lastly, if one is observant, one can see that the disk breaks and shoes are visible through the wheels.

 

The models we have are the ones that come in a display tray box of 4 models per box (The type of box that would be on a counter in a store). These are not the models that come in individual window box. They will be expertly (for real, I am the one who does it) packed for shipping (they will be better protected than an in an individual window box).

 

The Porsche 964 is the company's internal name for the Porsche 911 manufactured and sold between 1989 and 1994. Designed by Benjamin Dimson in 1986, it featured significant styling revisions over previous 911 models, most prominently the more integrated bumpers (fenders). It was the first generation 911 to be offered with Porsche's optional Tiptronic automatic transmission and all wheel drive as options.

The 964 was considered to be 85% new as compared to its predecessor, the Carrera 3.2. The first 964s available in 1989 were all wheel drive equipped "Carrera 4" models; Porsche added the rear wheel drive Carrera 2 variant to the range in 1990. Both variants were available as a coupeTarga or Cabriolet. The 964 Carrera was the last generation sold with the traditional removable Targa roof until the 2011 991 (993996, and 997 versions used instead a complex glass-roof "greenhouse" system). A new naturally aspirated engine called the M64 was used for 964 models, with a flat-6 displacement of 3.6 litres. Porsche substantially revised the suspension, replacing torsion bars with coil springs and shock absorbers.[2] Power steering and ABS brakes were added to the 911 for the first time; both were standard. The exterior bumpers and fog lamps became flush with the car for better aerodynamics. A new electric rear spoiler raised at speeds above 50 mph (80 km/h) and lowered down flush with the rear engine lid at lower speeds or at rest. A revised interior featured standard dual airbags beginning in 1990 for all North American production cars. A new automatic climate control system provided improved heating and cooling. Revised instrumentation housed a large set of warning lights that were tied into the car's central warning system, alerting the driver to a possible problem or malfunction.
