MCHOF’23: Brekina 1/87 Porsche 911 Targa Fits in and Stands Out

Finding the right model cars and trucks for a modle railroad can be a challenge. So many cars just don’t fit the period or location of someone’s chosen layout, and they stick out like a sore thumb. The Porsche 911 is one of thos ubiquitious cars that can fit any nationality, or any era (as long as it’s not before the car’s date of manufacture, of course!). For making such a versatile HO scale model, the Brekina Automotive 1976 Porsche 911 Targa is named the Model Car Hall of Fame’s 2003 1/87 scale Model of the Year.

The detail on these cars is incredible. Beautiful molding and precise printing make them look almost real. When seen in photos, they look like they must at least be 1/43, possibly 1/18 scale. But they are tiny miracles of design. But which version is best? They offer many.

Few motorists can outrun the police when the cops are in a Porsche 911, and Brekina makes a really sharp version with a side-mounted party light. Brekina also offers civilian and racing models of this Targa. Now that would be a neat chase scene in HO scale!

The car is offered in a wide variety of colors so you can place them all over a model railroad layout and not have them look repetitive. With all the diversity and detail, the Brekina Automotive Porsche 911 Targa is the choice for the Model Car Hall of Fame’s 1/87 Model of the Year.
