To mark "70 Years of Porsche Sports Cars", Schuco presents an Edition 1:18 version of the Porsche 356 A Carrera Speedster, limited to just 777 copies worldwide. More than 76,000 examples of the classic Porsche 356 sports car were produced between 1948 and 1965. The Porsche 356 was offered to its enthusiastic customers as a Coupé, cabriolet and hardtop coupé as well as a more nimble and lighter Speedster version. The top model of the Porsche 356 A series was without doubt the Carrera. Powered by a 1.6-litre four-cylinder, air-cooled engine, the Carrera produced 100bhp, allowing the extremely lightweight Speedster to reach a fantastic top speed of over 125 mph, which was quite a remarkable feat at that time. Under the motto "win on Sunday - sell on Monday", the Porsche 356 Speedster, in the hands of a number of private American drivers, won many of the then very popular club races held in the USA. The best known and without doubt most successful "privateer" Porsche racer in the United States was Bruce Jennings, who became known as "King Carrera". Jennings’ racing career spread over 35 years reflected more than 200 wins in various racing cars. His most famous privately owned car, a Porsche 356 Carrera Speedster with the start number "77", is now presented by Schuco as a wonderful collectible limited to just 1000 copies worldwide. Just like the other models of the Schuco Edition 1:18, the Porsche 356 A Speedster comes with many lovingly crafted details, such as opening and closing doors, a front opening hood and the opening bonnet under which the highly detailed replica of the "Fuhrmann engine" is accommodated. The limited special edition "70 Years of Porsche Sports Cars" additionally comes with the hardtop which was newly developed and specially designed for the Speedster at that time.
