Porsche Model Kits
Italeri has reissued three of their Porsche
kits. A 928s-4, 944s, and 911 Turbo. As a Porsche fan,
I look forward to these kits.
The Porsche 928 was introduced in 1977. Made with a new
body with a large tailgate, the new car was equipped with
a new aluminum V8 engine with electronic fuel injection,
capable of delivering power of 235hp. Designed according
to the formula "Transaxle", with front engine
and rear gearbox, the car was also equipped with independent
suspension and Weissach rear axle type, optimized to reduce
under stear. The S4 version was produced in 1986, and was
characterized by a more powerful engine that delivered 330hp.
This 928 kit features 86 parts on colored sprues. The 944
features 91 parts on precolored sprues.
The Porsche 944 was produced from 1982 to 1991 and was an
evolution of the model 924 maintaining the aesthetic line.
The car was originally equipped with a fuel injection engine
from 2479 cc capable of delivering power of 163 hp. and
made according to the Transaxle concept (rear engine and
front shifter). The 944 was produced in different versions
with different engines and extensive redesign of the interior
in coupe and convertible configurations. In particular,
the S variant, introduced in 1987, was equipped with a 16
valve engine generating 189hp and able to achieve speeds
from 0 to 100 km / h in 7.2 seconds. Only 9800 were built.
The model 911 Turbo was introduced in 1975 with an engine
of 2994 cc with the assistance of the turbocharger and intercooler
could offer power of 260hp. Over the years a series of technical
and stylistic improvements were introduced that have made
this car, characterized by broad wheel arches and the large
wing, an authentic symbol of the ultimate sports cars. The
model kit features 84 parts on precolored sprues.
All three model kits have full engine details.
