That's what I found about all Porsches in 1/24 scale

type 901 (early 911) 1967-69 -> Fujimi
Carrera RS (911 rally) 1973 Fujimi
Type 930 (911 turbo) 1977-85 -> Fujimi
Type 964 (Carrera 4) 1989-93 Fujimi
Type 993 (racing GT2) 93-98 Tamiya
Type 996 (since 98) Tamiya, Italieri

But Tamiya do not have "plain" Carrera 4/4S version of 993
Does such kits exists? 993 is the last "true" 911 successor
and probably the best one. Especially I like targa with sliding
roof

A company called Italeri are your best bet for 993s! They are Italian, and detail is so so, but with mixing a few kits you could get perfect results.

Here's the Italeri 1/24 cars & trucks page:

http://www.italeri.com/Categoria.asp?ProCategoria1=1&Cat3Codice=6&Cat4Codice=24

They have two 911s (993s?) listed...

#684 Porsche 911 (1997)
#685 Porsche 911 Cabrio (1998)

edit: don't forget Tamiya's 959 and Boxster kits, too. They're Porsches! :D

Both Italieri are 996 (cabrio too)
Almost the same as Tamiya's

993 should look like this:

They didn't used to! I think Revell bought the mold for the 993 Turbo, and I have a 993 Cabrio in my loft I think!
You just have to have a look around for some of the older kits

You know Tamiya are due to release a 993 GT2 Road Car?

Not known yet. I thought about converting Taisan racing... but that's good news!

I found this info: Tamiya No.24247
But nothing about this kit in official Tamiya site (english)
I can't read Japanese yet :)

They exist in Italieri list:
But rumours about Italieri quality scare away me a little bit

I haven't bother starting it, which says something!:(

Really? The guy at the model shop here recommended Italeri as having good quality and detail. And he's a friend so he wouldn't lie to me... Anyone done something by Italeri?
