With two more Porsche 911 coming from Tomica Limited Vintage, here are the first 9 you need.

This is the truest Porsche Party you can have in 1/64.  Heaven knows there have been plenty of 1/64 Porsche parties lately.  Hot Wheels is on a massive Porsche kick.  So are many other brands.  And we are just gobbling them up.  As well we should be, as there have been crazy good releases.

Before this tidal wave hit, the most signature of all Porsches were already out there in 1/64 were already out there.  Several years ago Tomica Limited Vintage released a stunning series of Porsche 911 and 912 replicas.  Four 911S models with the side deco and fuch wheels, two early 912 and 911 models with dish hubs, and two Japanese Police models.


And as the Porsche surge has hit our world, these have become more and more sought-after, to the point that they are very difficult to come across.

Thankfully TLV is bringing the Porsche back.  Next month it will release another 911S in blue, and a 911 in a special 50th Anniversary deco.  Japan Booster has them available for preorder along with the rest of the loaded April release.


It is a welcome return for the Porsche, and while I have no idea, I have to think we might see a couple more in the coming months as well.  But there will be many collectors will discover how beautiful these are.  Bone stock, highly detailed, pure TLV.

In anticipation of these two, I decided to photograph all nine of the TLV 911/912 models.  Japan Booster also decided to make all nine available this week as well:

I can't decide on which mini TLV collection I like the most.  The Porsches are up there.  They are easily my favorite 1/64 Porsches in the collection.

  2. Good luck getting any of them. If people are bidding on them like they do on the Atlas car loader, you'll be looking at prices in the $75-100 range.

    It's kind of Ironic how the Foreign cars are so expensive compared to the Domestic Japanese cars, you'd be able to get them from a lot of other diecast manufacturers in Europe and the US.

    I myself have only the Aichi Prefectural Police 912 at the moment, as it is a TOMICA SHOP exclusive, and I want to complete the Series before I move on to something else (Just missing a few now, but they're underway)

    1. you are right, last time I checked (i.e. last night), they sold at an average of $80 each on eBay

    2. I agree with you on the Foreign cars. The Audi 90, Mercedes 190E, BMW 325i (E30), Alfa Romeo GTV all sell for a premium compared to the JDM cars

  3. You have to buy cars like these when they first come out if you want to get them at a decent price. It's amazing how prices skyrocket.
    Kyosho and Minichamps make some fantastic Porsches as well. Hard for me to pick one over another.
