Description

The TrueScale Miniatures 1:12 Porsche 959 S 1987 is a meticulously-crafted model car that pays homage to one of the most iconic sports cars of all time. The Porsche 959 was a technological marvel when it was first introduced in 1986, and this model captures every detail of its groundbreaking design.

The Porsche 959 was a limited-production sports car that was built from 1986 to 1988. It was designed as a high-performance road-going version of the Porsche 961 racing car, which had competed in the grueling Paris-Dakar rally. The 959 featured numerous groundbreaking features such as an all-wheel-drive system, adjustable suspension, and a twin-turbocharged engine, which made it one of the most advanced sports cars of its time. It’s top speed of 217 mph / 317 kmh meant it was the fastest road-legal production car in the world, although this was short-lived as a few months later Ferrari revealed the F40 which could go 200 mph.

This model is a 1:12 scale replica of the Porsche 959 S, which was the sport version of the car. The S model was even more exclusive than the standard 959, with only 29 examples produced. The model is made from high-quality resin. The wheels and tyres are accurately repicated, as is the car’s aerodynamic bodywork. The interior of the car is equally impressive, with a highly-detailed dashboard, steering wheel, and seats.

The exterior of the model is painted in Porsche’s iconic silver color, and features authentic Porsche badging and decals. The wheels and tires are accurately replicated, as is the car’s aerodynamic bodywork with metal brake discs and perforated grilles and intakes. The interior of the car is equally impressive, with a highly-detailed dashboard, steering wheel, and seats.

Understanding Scale

The scale of a model is its size as a proportion to the real-life item. For instance, a 1:18 scale model means that every 1 unit of measurement on the model equals 18 units on the real item. If you divide the real item's size by 18, you'd get the size of the 1:18 model. Please note that models can vary slightly in size, as not all real-life items, like cars or planes, have the same dimensions.
