Total 911’s miniature car collection

Here at Total 911, we normally deal with full-sized examples of Zuffenhausen’s iconic sports car. However, that doesn’t stop us enjoying the legendary curves of the Porsche 911 when we are sat at our office desk.

That’s why we’ve put together this collection of miniature 911s – as seen in issue 113 – for your viewing pleasure. Perfect as a gift, they could also take pride of place on display in your own home or at work:

Porsche 991 Carrera S 1:18 model – £70
Minichamps overall

Minichamps detailWe’ll start with the winner in the realism stakes. Minichamps are the undisputed masters of the die-cast model world, so it was not surprising to know that the model maker was top of Porsche’s list to produce miniature replicas for the Driver’s Selection.

This 1:18-scale 991 Carrera S is another stunning creation from the German specialist, with a number of incredible details replicated in shrunken form. There’s the working steering, Sports Chrono clock, and PDK paddles to name but a few exquisite features. It’s definitely a worthy addition to any desk.

Porsche 911 sculpture – €350 (£250)
Dufour overall

Dufour detailIf style and exclusivity is what you crave then this gorgeous sculpture from automotive artist Stéphane Dufour is the perfect centrepiece. Based on the original short-wheelbase 911, the sculpture captures the form of the iconic silhouette with elegant simplicity.

Made in solid resin, Dufour is limiting production to 200 pieces, with each 1:18-scale sculpture numbered and signed on the underside. As well as the gloss white, the 911 resin cast is also available in black, green, red, orange, and yellow.

Tamiya R/C Porsche 911 Carrera RSR – From £130
Tamiya overall

Tamiya detailThis isn’t the first time we’ve shouted about Tamiya’s recently-released Carrera RSR remote control car but, it’s so incredibly cool, especially in the famous Martini livery, that we have no qualms about bringing it to your attention once again.

Underneath the polycarbonate body (accurately moulded to include the flared arches and iconic duck tail spoiler) lies Tamiya’s TT02, four-wheel drive chassis. With it’s powerful electric motor, this 1:10-scale car is a true back-garden weapon.
