Originally only available for two years – between 1967 and 1969 – this detailed Porsche Carrera 6 is typical of the high quality models Corgi produced during their ‘golden era’. Whereas it was only available in white, there were two versions, with either a red or blue bonnet and doors – the latter being much rarer. The tinted clear plastic in the rear section that hinges upwards to reveal a detailed chrome and black engine, was based on a similar feature on the actual car.
The red bonnet version utilised a deep blue plastic but for the blue bonnet model it was either yellow or pale blue. As was frustratingly typical for many Corgi’s of this period, the box art depicted a totally different colour car – in this case, green! Corgi later reissued the red bonnet version during the 1970s Whizzwheels era.
