In 1992, Porsche produced a concept car that harkened back to an icon of its early days: the Boxster. A two-seat, mid-engine roadster that was low on frills and high on performance. Four years later, the concept became reality, and the Boxster became the best-selling Porsche until the Cayenne SUV came out in 2003.
Revell has recently brought us a Snap-Tite version of the first-generation Boxster. Let’s give it the once over.
As you would expect for a Snap-Tite kit, part count is low and assembly is simplified. The 32 plastic parts are molded in red, black, clear, red clear, and chrome. Two metal axles, two screws, four vinyl tires, a sheet of stickers, and the instruction sheet round out the box contents. As one would expect for a new mold, the parts are free of flash and the details are crisp.
