Speaking of 993’s, I’d love to see a 1/18 993 Turbo in the color White. They currently only make a 1/18 Carrera RS in white, and although it looks somewhat similar, I’ll really like to see it on the Turbo. I’m tempted to look for a Turbo model for a good deal so I could possibly paint it white....

Ford Sierra/Mercury Merkur XR4(Ti). Also could be done as a group A circuit racer.

I suspect OttO Mobile will make one at some point
Since you guys brought the Merkur up, I thought why not do the IMSA version as well considering it was successful in it's class.
Yes please! Daytona winner would be nice
I blame you guys for me ending up watching the entire 30-minute You Tube video of the 1988 ETCC Silverstone Tourist Trophy to watch an army of RS500/Merkurs in action! All I wanted to do was find whether AJG's or Jon's pics were of the Daytona GTO winner (they are) and in my search of racingsportscars.com got thoroughly confused because I didn't know the exact model name of the Sierra that the Mercury Merkur XR4Ti was rebadged from. Once I found RS500, then I saw that the race info wasn't linked to race lists for the IMSA Merkur but found enough interesting race results that I had to watch the race: excellent video, commentary and plenty of driver interviews:

Talk about small world! That certainly explains all the touring car vids posted by inquisitor 😉...

Porsche Cayman 718 GT4. Both Spark & GT Spirit have made the previous gen, so I'm showing a picture here hoping someone will make it.

dont forget that Schuco also made some Cayman GT4's, but then again they are not producing much, and what they do is at an slow rate.
I completely forgot they made it too!

Apologies if this has been recommended in one of the 990 previous posts!
I just didn't feel like trawling through them all.....
Sunbeam Tiger 289 - preferably without the goofy mirrors (unless they were on the doors).
With the rollbar and hood scoop, this is obviously a Tiger prepped for racing. You should go for the most famous version, the one driven by Maxwell Smart, Agent 86 of CONTROL:

261627


This is actually a touched-up Alpine, but you'd have to check under the hood to tell the difference since the Alpine had a 2.3-liter inline four cylinder as opposed to the Tiger's 4.3 or 4.7-liter Ford V-8s.

I only found out this version existed yesterday. Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography, basically almost the engine from a Range Rover SVR (so I heard) put into a Velar.

A Jensen Interceptor FF, either a MKII or a MkIII - Cult made the MkI but I didn't like the colour they chose that much (It was a sort of boring Grey/ Silver) & didn't buy one. They barely ever come up for sale so, maybe a re paint of it, or the later ones I mentioned would be nice!

A MkI in this Orange would be cool!



MkII,



MKIII. I know it's like playing spot the difference!!

The 1969 Aston Martin DBS V8 in this spec (most likely Cult, or GT-Spirit)

The 1969 Ferrari 246 Dino in this spec. I know BBR made it a few years back, but in too limited of a production run. (most likely KK-Scale, Matrix, BBR, CMR)
