GT Spirit Additional February Releases

We’re definitely not perfect, we missed three new models from GT Spirit’s assortment of February 2019 releases, all three are Porsches too and in 1:18 scale.  The feature belongs to the Porsche 911 3.0 RSR.  We believe this is the first in 1:18 scale since the Spark release.  The remaining two aren’t truly new, more like new colours for the Porsche 911 Carrera RS Club Sport and Porsche 928 GTS.

About the Porsche 911 3.0 RSR…  “After a 911 Carrera RSR 2.8 that won a number of events in the 1973 season, Porsche decided to push the concept of “competition-customer” cars even further for the 1974 season with the 911 Carrera RSR 3.0L. The Flat 6 saw its capacity increased and received a Bosch injection gifting it with 330horsepower. The clutch was reinforced with its casing now made of aluminum. Porsche delivered the car with two different fins; one fin to cruise on the open road, and another to compete with. The 55 produced copies brought home the gold many a time.”

    I would have definitely grabbed that 3.0 RSR if I collected race cars, I love that one. And it’s great to see the 993 Carrera RS back up for sale but sad that it’s in a color as boring as silver.

      Also, now that they have the RSR, I still hope to see GT Spirit take on the 3.0 Carrera RS road car, since the Spark version is hard to find and expensive when you do. Would love to see it in alternate colors!
