Kind of… Anyone that’s read PorschePurist for a while knows we love RC Cars, especially when they’re Porsche related (remember our review of the Tamiya Porsche 911 GT3 VIP Cup Car). That’s why we can’t stop thinking about this Porsche 356 from Schuco.
We first saw this Porsche Schucotronic 2.4 about two months ago over at BornRich. Ever since then we’ve been trying to get our hands on one. Unfortunately, according to SunRich Toys (Schuco’s US Distributor) these cars aren’t currently available for sale in the US (maybe if enough of you are interested, we can change that). 🙂
So, while we don’t have one of these to review ourselves, the Schuco site has plenty of information and a couple of great videos (like the one above). In our opinion, the best part of the Schucotronic Porsche is the 2.4 ghz remote control. Not only does the control let you switch on the front and rear lamps, set the blinker and beep the horn. It also has a button that produces sound from the engine. As if that weren’t enough, the 4-channel remote allows for four (4) Porsches to race against each other. Hmmm. Maybe we can upgrade the motor on one, throw on some slicks and have our very own “outlaw” 356 in 1:18 scale.
