The new nine eleven celebrated its debut as a miniature in the format of 1:18 in two colors and in the usual high-quality and black promotional packaging for Porsche last week. The Aacheners from Minichamps have been licensed to reproduce the eighth generation of the sports car and present their work in the colors gentian blue and chalk grey: The modelcars out of diecast are available under the item numbers WAP0211830K and WAP0211820K. The appearance of the models coincides exactly with the lines of the real sports car, which is listed under the internal model number 992; Minichamps has once again brilliantly understood how to formally recreate the legendary nine eleven friend. This is not a very easy task with the many curves of the bodywork: their exact radiuses required to meet!
But the mold design engineers had a good day: The now larger, front fenders and the exciting curves of the rear from the rear wheel cut, they have bravely implemented into the model. The dynamics that radiates the coupe on the road, is also the miniatures own: A consequence here and there by 40 millimeters wider track. The good impression is complemented by the detailed replica of the front bumper with its flaps. Minichamps hit the standard tail light on all the versions of the 992 perfectly. The interior of the headlights is also retold perfectly, as the glass roof fits into the body line of the roof structure. That the seats, dashboard and side panels in the model are hardly better to make surprised the fans of Minichamps not.
The key data for the new nine eleven
Doors and hoods remain closed in these modelcars, however. So the fan sees nothing of the two six-cylinder twin-turbo engines that the people from Stuttgart give their icon to launch the market on the way: They develop from the almost three liters displacement as Carrera 283 kW / 385 hp and as Carrera S 331 kW / 450 PS; traded by eight-speed PDK or seven-speed manual transmission. The maximum torque is given with 530 Newton meters (Nm). The top speed is just over 300 kilometers per hour, depending on whether the rear or four-wheel drive are installed. An all-round successful model, but that's not surprising, because in our experience Minichamps has always built the best nine eleven models: in 1:43 as in 1:18 or 1:12.
