The Taiyo Porsche 911 Cabriolet was a realistic 1/18 scale R/C model of the famous sports car, and was released in 1987 – at the height of 1980s Porsche popularity. As with all Taiyo models of this era, it is a high quality item, made in Japan. With it’s nice body details, white wheels, slick tyres and authentic proportions, plus “Turbo” feature on the trigger style transmitter, this was a diminutive but great-looking little R/C car with nimble performance from the 8xAA batteries that the car carries – it has a top speed of 25km/h. If you’re a Porsche 911 fan, it will not disappoint – looking impressive on the shelf, as well as being able to zip around the living room floor.
