The Taiyo Porsche 911 Cabriolet (Japan) is a 1:18 scale radio controlled car released onto the Japanese market in 1987.
Based on the the 1987 car of the same name, it’s a very close likeness, apart from the white wheels which give it a fun, sporty appeal in our opinion. The abundance of stickers isn’t appealing to us though, and we’d prefer most were removed.
The pistol-grip controller tells you this is better than average.
The real 1987 Porsche 911 Cabriolet. Taiyo did well to capture this cars design and spirit into the Taiyo Porsche 911 Cabriolet.
As a small 1:18 scale car with 9.6V (8xAA) batteries crammed into its small chassis, I would expect this thing to rip! With a Top Speed of 25km/h (16mph) it’s not the fastest car, but it matches the Ferrari F-40 which is a wild ride, mostly thanks to acceleration, and the slicks which make donuts and sliding around corners easy.
This car is on my must-have list, if I can ever find one. If you like the look of it, then I’d suggest you grab one too.
