Porsche 904 GTS

Fiday 16 January 2008
After having retired from F1 at the end of the 1962 season, Porsche focused again on sportscars. The 904 debuted in 1964 as a successor to the Porsche 718 which had been introduced in 1957. It was the first Porsche to use a fibreglass body which was white. While many German race cars had used unpainted aluminium bodies since the famous 1934 Silver Arrows, most 904s were painted silver which is the German racing color. The 904 marks also the beginning of a series of sportscars that culminated in the mighty Porsche 917. Model is made by Schuco.

Technical data:
- engine: 4 cyliders boxer
- capacity: 1966 cc
- horsepower: 180 HP
- gearbox: 5+1
- top speed: 257 km/h

A nice choice for a 904 on any shelf in my opinion. I have the original version by High Speed, which is totally identical to Schuco's, and for the price the quality is great. Congratulations on your model and your pictures!

P.S. Silver isn't the German national racing colour, although it is traditional. White is. ;)

The Highspeed and Schuco Junior models are, in this case the same indeed.

Cheers for the correction regarding colour.
