Seven superb Christmas gift ideas from Total 911
Christmas Day is just around the corner and, if you’re still stuck for ideas to put on your wish list, we’ve put together a selection of seven superb potential presents that you may just find under the tree this year:
Porsche Design 911 Soundbar – £2,400
Revving up to 9,000rpm, there are few sounds greater than a 911 GT3 at full flight, so it makes sense that Porsche Design has used the exhaust from the 991 for their 911 Soundbar. Using the rear silencer (complete with gloss black tailpipes) as a resonator for the integrated subwoofer, the 200W unit packs an impressive punch in terms of both volume and clarity.
Elliot Brown Tyneham – From £795
Elliot Brown’s watches are synonymous with bulletproof build quality. The new Tyneham range uses a self-winding Japanese movement with a 40-hour power reserve inside a 41mm stainless steel case. Having developed extra damping to protect the inner workings, and a hardened bezel to shield the sapphire crystal face, the Tyneham is as tough as it is beautiful.
Porsche 911 engine model – £145
Available through Porsche Club GB, this model engine is based on the 2.0-litre 901/01 flat six fitted to the original 911 of 1964. The impressive kit allows you to build a fully functioning quarter scale engine in just a few hours, with a working valvetrain complete with miniature valves, valve springs and camshafts.
Tamiya 934 RC kit – From £199.99
Forty years ago Tamiya released their first radio-controlled car, a Vaillant-liveried Porsche 934 kit. Now they have relaunched the 934 RC car in the iconic Jägermeister colours, and the short-wheelbase, wide track ‘TA02SW’ chassis gives the model a realistic stance and allows enthusiasts to fine-tune the car’s handling.
Mulholland Racer ‘Telefunken Radio’ T-shirt – £35.95
Mulholland Racer’s ‘Telefunken Radio’ T-shirt takes its inspiration from Porsche’s motorsport legends. Sponsored by the German radio company, a 550 Spyder driven by Hans Herrmann won the under-1,500cc class at the 1954 Carrera Panamericana, and to celebrate, Porsche used the ‘Carrera’ name on its top-of-the-range cars, with the moniker living on today.
GoPro Hero5 cameras – From £249.99
Since its foundation in 2002, GoPro has become the go-to action camera manufacturer and its latest offerings are equally impressive. The Hero5 Black has a waterproof design and does away with the transparent casing, while the cube-shaped Hero5 Session joins the flagship model in being able to shoot 4K video.
Mulholland Racer ‘Weissach’ gloves – £64.95
While some enjoy full driving gloves, others prefer the extra feel provided by fingerless mitts, and so Mulholland Racer has developed its new ‘Weissach’ gloves. Available in black or brown capeskin leather (with a red or grey wrist strap respectively), the elasticated entry allows for a perfect fit. The details are simple yet elegant, with a quality that belies the modest price.
