I just ran into an ad for one, but have never seen it mentioned here before.
A friend of mine started a mobile detail business with one and went on to become a successful business person. I am sure he will be thrilled to get one.

Just saw some photos of the DE Schuco Porsche 356 Speedster in white.  :bawling:
Overall it looks well built/done (well I guess it ought to be for the high pricetag). However being a car already released by Kyosho and then AUTOart, it will require quite a substantial amount of attraction to justify getting another model and at high end level. Right now it's not doing that for me, maybe the upcoming hobby version coupe in black and cabriolet in silver will be more enticing.

The upside of course is this looks like a proper speedster model. (the AUTOart is pretty much a convertible D and the Kyosho being a very old release is quite poor in quality yet not so cheap to get too)
Another thing is the two lumps on the door, I'm not sure what they are but sure hope they're not just poor paint finish. http://www.diecastxc...tyle_emoticons/default/yikes.gifhttps://www.diecastxchange.com/forum1/public/style_emoticons/default/dizzy.gif

I'll get it asap - not from Porsche.
I don't think, the Schuco 356 is 190 EUR worth; but this is the DE price.
The normal shop price will be more comparable with AUTOart's price.  :bawling:

Ah, I've been wondering when this one would be released. Those lumps on the door are odd though. Don't know what to make of them.

Otherwise it's a pretty little model. Maybe not $250 pretty, but the white body with red interior is perfect for the Speedster.

Mmmmmmmmmm.. I saw it on ebay.... surely a great model,  but this time I'll not buy this DE..... I don't want onother 356 speedster, at this high price!!

I think at this point it is better to wait for more news great Museum Edition, don't you think so, too??

It's a pitty that the top isn't deatachable and there will be 2 versions top up/no top. I still don't like the soft-top mould...
Edit: forgot to say that for that price (120 euros on modelissimo) those rims look too chromed. Ricko and Signature's wheels look better in my opinion...
