Miniature Motoring: Hotwheels Honda Civic and Porsche 993 GT2

You’re never too old for diecast cars. You can call them toys, or models, or collectibles, or a hobby, but either way – we still think they’re awesome. We always sneak a cheeky look at the Hotwheels or Matchbox cars in supermarkets or whilst out and about, so here’s some of the cars we’ve purchased recently:

Hotwheels Porsche 911 GT2 (993)

I’ve always been more of a fan of the standard cars, not so much the GT Porsches, but the detail on this little GT2 is really quite remarkable. The spoiler itself isn’t a plastic afterthought, but a metal moulding, and the louvres in the rear deck and details on the bonnet are all top quality. It’s amazing to see how good 1/64 scale models are these days, and Hotwheels really do lead the way.

Hotwheels Honda Civic DOHC VTEC

I try to limit myself to just one purchase per shop… But in this case I was just so torn between the Civic and the Porsche that I found myself at the cash till with two Hotwheels, breaking my own rule. Anyway, who cares when they look this good? The Civic is an excellent little diecast model, the detail is fantastic and the ride height is just spot on. The JDM modified look really suits the Civic in any guise, and this has instantly become one of the favourites in my growing collection of diecast vehicles.

Miniature Motoring: The Porsche Range, in miniature

You’re never too old for diecast cars. You can call them toys, or models, or collectibles, or a hobby, but either way – we still think they’re awesome. We always sneak a cheeky look at the Hotwheels or Matchbox cars in supermarkets or whilst out and about, and have a particular preference for anything Porsche. Here’s a few we’ve rounded up so far:

Porches

Matchbox Porsche Boxster, Hotwheels Porsche 911 GT3 RS, Hotwheels Porsche Cayman, Realtoy Porsche Panamera Turbo

Although I’d normally be a Hotwheels or Matchbox only kinda person, the Realtoy Panamera s actually very good. Overall the shape of it is fantastic, though it needs some bigger profile wheels to really compete with the Hotwheels and Matchbox versions of Porsche cars.

The GT3 and Cayman are fantastic little replicas, and the Matchbox is also a good replication of the real thing.

The GT2 is fantastically detailed and sits at the right height, it’s in proportion and we really can’t pick many faults with this incarnation of the 911 from Hotwheels

Matchbox Porsche 911 996 Turbo

Matchbox Porsche 911 996 Turbo

The 911 Turbo (996) from Matchbox is looking a little tired and chipped… I never liked these wheels that Matchbox came out with, and the roofline seems to have taken a knock at some point in it’s life. Not exactly ‘One Careful Owner’!

Matchbox really made up for the 996 with this GT3, it looks accurate in the black and white and the metal spoiler is a neat touch. They got the wheels right this time, too – an area that so many diecast manufacturers screw up on!

Corgi Porsche 911 SC Targa

Corgi Porsche 911 SC Targa

I believe this Corgi Porsche 911 SC Targa actually came in a McDonalds Happy Meal more than 20 years ago, but can’t really remember. All I know is that it’s been knocking around with my various posessions for a very, very long time, hence the missing windscreen and general wear and tear… It’s been trodden on a few times as well, the frame for the rear glass is bent and the rear glass is almost popping out. Still, I’m not throwing it out, because I’ve owned it so long. I kinda like it that way!

Porsche 993 values on the up

This weekend’s Classic Motor Show at the NEC featured the annual Silverstone Auctions Sale, and the quality of this years entries was once again top notch.

Sitting pretty in the centre of the auction area were a brace of Porsche 993 models, the oft-forgotten 911 of the mid 1990s that’s due it’s turn in the classic car limelight.

Porsches of the 60s and 70s get plenty of attention on the classic car scene, and judging by the results achieved by the five models listed below, there has never been a better time to invest in a Porsche 993…

 The real question is though, which Porsche 993 would Good Shout Media go for?

Of the cars sold at the Silverstone Auction at the Classic Motor Show, it just has to be the Yellow 993 C2. Those Cup wheels, that paintwork… it’s almost the perfect 911, however if there had been a Turbo in Arena Red, then that would have clinched it.

Maybe next time we spot a Porsche 993 at a Silverstone Auction we’ll be bidding instead of blogging!
