$ 319.00

On the 12th of September in 1963, Porsche introduced the Type 901 as the successor of the Porsche 356 at the IAA in Frankfurt. Just one year later, with the 901 poised to go into series-production, it was presented to the public eye again at the Parisian Autosalon.

Peugeot intervened, because they owned the copyright for all 3-digit model designations with a “0” in the middle. But before Porsche was able to make the amends, production of the Type 901 had already got off the ground on September 14, 1964, and a total of 82 units were delivered by the factory. All of them carried the type designation “901”. Subsequently, the 901 became the 911, a legendary 3-digit designation that still raises the heartbeat of every sports car enthusiast.

By now the 901, or the subsequent 911, has won an established spot in the sports car Olympus. To those that are still dreaming – and essentially to all model fans – CMC now offers the 901 in a most faithful and gorgeously-crafted replication. It is composed of 971 single parts. Finally the Porsche 901 has a miniature that does justice to its original beauty.
