REVIEW: AUTOart Porsche 911 Carrera (993)

Post by cemars » Sun Oct 31, 2021 5:35 am

Hello;

I recently saw this beauty on ebay and just couldn't resist buying it.

Let's start with outside,

As usual, AUTOart did a great job on modeling the car. The model represents the real car very well.
It's really difficult to find an error. Lines, proportions, all the details on outside are like real. Colour and paintjob are real eye-catchers.

However, the engine bay is not such a big hit since there is also not so much detail on real car.

Image


The craftsmanship on openable hood and the wing moves apart from it are amazing.

Image

Image


Wheels are a bit boring, wheelnuts could have been coloured. They turn perfectly though. No suspension.
Brake discs and pads are very well detailed. Discs are made from a piece of thin metal.

Image


Both front and tail lights are detailed perfectly. Also, the badge on front is a seperate piece.

Image

I hope you enjoy, more cars will follow.

Lovely, thanks for sharing! What still remains a mystery to me, is that AUTOart has the base 993 for years now, WHERE ARE ALL THE VARIANTS! :wall:

%100 agree with you, especially the Turbo would have been a big hit.

Same goes for 964 series too, luckily Solido is doing great job there.

They are, but the level of refinement isn't for me, especially that I'm a hardcore Porsche collector

I was lucky enough to get it for 150£ incl. shipping.

964s and 930s are around 300£.

What worse than that, is 1£ equals to 13₺ (Turkish Liras)
If you want to buy one you need to pay roughly 4000₺. It’s mind blowing since minimum wage in Turkey is only 2825₺/month. :shame:
