Tonka® Clutch Poppers №6162 - PORSCHE 911 TURBO - 18 cm Japan 1981

Originally released in 1980 this is one of the additional models in the Tonka Clutch Popper series. A stylised version of a Porsche 935 (most likely the 1977-78 Carrera) , just called ‘Porsche’ on the original packaging. Great looking pressed steel toy car with or without decals/stickers, all models came with the ‘Turbo sound’ feature. These cars have the same rear and front wheel dimension compared to the Chevy models. This is to keep it true in form to the original car, although in doing this the car does run a little slower than the larger wheeled Chevy models, even though it has the same flywheel motor. Also about 20g lighter than the Chevy models, as overall has a more narrow body.

    One of these clutch popper Porsche 935’s came into the workshop today (aka “the shed”), very good condition at a bargain price of $10. Was just a bit noisy and slow, but body wise very good nick, hardly a scratch. Had obviously spent time in a home of very well behaved and gentle kids, it’s […]
