Collectible diecast model from Maisto of the 2006 Porsche 911 Carrera S Convertible. The Porsche 911 first started production in 1963. The famous, distinctive, and durable design has undergone continuous development since its introduction. Mechanically it is notable for being rear engined and, until the introduction of the all-new Type 996 in 1998, air-cooled. Since its inception the 911 has been modified, both by private teams and the factory itself, for racing, rallying and other types of automotive competition. It is often cited as the most successful competition car ever, especially when its variations are included, mainly the powerful 935. In the international poll for the award of Car of the Century, the 911 came fifth after the Ford Model T, the Mini, the Citroen DS and the Volkswagen Beetle. It is the most successful surviving application of the air (or water) cooled opposed rear engine layout pioneered by its original ancestor, the Volkswagen Beetle.
