Developed by Porsche for the 1996 endurance racing season, this car was based upon the 911 (993) with carbon fiber body panels and a midship mounted 600hp 3.2-liter flat-6 twin turbo engine. In addition to three works cars, a number were also said to have been developed for private customers and use upon public roads. This assembly kit creates an R/C model of such a "Street" car, with the sleek, powerful body captured in lightweight polycarbonate and separate parts for the side mirrors and rear wing. Stickers are included to recreate markings, headlights, taillights and more.

Right: Side mirrors on the front fenders are separate parts, with stickers recreating mirror surfaces.
Left: A big wing and rear spoiler really add to the racy look of the car. Both are captured using separate parts.|

Efficient and Agile: the TA03R-S|
Efficient single belt-driven 4WD and quick steering response are the calling cards of the midship motor, short wheelbase TA03R-S chassis. Gearboxes front and rear house differentials for smooth cornering, and are sealed to protect the workings from dust and dirt, while high-performance double wishbone suspension employs oil dampers and utilizes dedicated touring car geometry (camber, caster, etc.), plus delta box lower arms for greater reliability.
Left: The 3-piece steering tie-rod uses a center input setup to help ensure a smooth, intuitive drive.|
Right: CVA Super Mini oil dampers are fitted front and rear on the double wishbone suspension.
