Which Porsche Turbo?
Posted 20 April 2017 - 09:49 AM
I've looked carefully at the Norev 930 Turbo 3.3 but those awful tyres destroy the poise and scale of the model to my eyes when viewed side on.
So what about the Porsche 964 Turbo by Welly? It's not quite the era or shape I was looking for, but the prices are very reasonable.
Does anyone own both the Norev and the Welly air cooled Porsche Turbos? Which model of the two would you prefer - and why?
And how different are they to the benchmark AUTOart 930 Turbos?

I've had Welly 964 Turbo's but they're not the greatest. I sold them on when GTS announced theirs.

The Welly 964 is a decent effort, but the cheap toy like wheels let it down.

I was fortunate to find both sets of wheels on eBay with out sacrificing a model but now the Singer wheels might be very hard to find.
Here's my red Norev 930 with Maisto 911 Speedster wheels.
Here is my silver Norev 930 with GT Spirit Singer wheels.

Here's another with just the standard Maisto tire swap and some lowering(and grinding to the rear wheel well interiors), you only need a crappy speedster in almost any condition as a tire donor
Or you could just get the blackbird and add a badge
And a blue one, although I never liked the foggy paint on it
You can still get a silver norev in the US for under $80 shipped from an unnamed modelwarehouse with a NEXT 10% discount code.... Although I bought a couple from CK earlier last year for $50 something each. One of these days I'm going to strip the spare for some viper green metallic paint.
