BBR Porsche 356A 1955

Under their Concept 18 brand BBR is introducing a new Porsche 356A 1955.  The model is completed in resin and features closed-body design.  Four colours are initially scheduled for release, each detailed below.  There is also a premium version with display case available.  Pricing starts at 210 Euro.  Though the initial images are good, we think BBR is little for the game…  The market is saturated with Porsche models, many featuring the 356, and many better priced!

About the Porsche 356…  “The Porsche 356 is a luxury sports car which was first produced by Austrian company Porsche Konstruktionen GesmbH (1948-1949), and then by German company Dr. Ing. h. c. F. Porsche GmbH (1950-1965). It was Porsche’s first production automobile. Earlier cars designed by the Austrian company includes Cisitalia Grand Prix race car, and the Volkswagen Beetle as well as Auto Union Grand Prix cars were designed by the German company.”

    The AUTOart 356 “Ferdinand” as well as their Speedster models are wonderful models. Die cast, not plastic, and with opening features. I don’t see any need for these plastic BBRs.

      The model above will be made in resin, not plastic. But I agree that there are lots of choices out there including ones from Signature.

    And Schuco also do one in metal with opening bits. I don’t know how it compares to the AutoArt, but it looks OK (and it’s less expensive).

    I have the AutoArt, and see NO need for BBR to produce these models. As the DS Team has written, the market is already saturated with Porsche models such as these. Additionally – the BBR Porsche 356 models are not very good value. GT Spirit makes equally good models for much bettter/lower prices. And…… BBR has a bad habit of overproducing models, and offering an edition as “Limited” only to later on produce the same model, but on a different display base. Caveat emptor. Buy it only if you like it, do not count on it increasing in value, or even holding its value!!!

    By the way, I do have a few BBR models in my collection, but based on their pricing and questionable “business ethics” I don’t plan on buying any more of them.

    True, there are many 1/18 scale 356 porsche available already. AutoArt makes the best ones so far. Quality/price is good for the AutoArt version. If you are into quantities then any 356 will suffice for your collection. For me I prefer few and being more selective of my choices. Personally I enjoy the resin because the seams of the doors, and hoods look more realistic then the diecast version. For me, I also display mine with closed hoods and doors. Actually I rarely open my die cast ones. The presentations of the BBR 1/18 is amazing in the details and quality. I only have 3 but I very much enjoy looking at them.
