Here was one of my more interesting (and odder) acquisitions from the Porsche Museum gift shop. This was actually the one Cayman model car they had in stock, an S model in 1:43 bearing the livery and overhead lights of a ground crew vehicle at Hannover Airport. Imagine one of these things driving down a runway or taxiway or rushing to a gate. Undoubtedly speedier than those pickup trucks or (in Germany) Volkswagen Golfs.

The paint job alone was worth getting - either incredibly original or hideous depending on your perspective, maybe both.

Almost makes me want to get a job at Hannover Airport!

That is one unique model! I wonder if the airport personel make up excuses to check the "landing lights" at the far end of the runway 10 times a day?;)

I heard taxi times at this airport are ridiculous - people have complaint that the saw the gateway pass by the window 3-4 times before the plain came to a full stop .... :eek:

This was in the Porsche Museum Gift Shop in Zuffenhausen. Have never seen this one online or in any other store. The model is made by Schuco so perhaps you can check their website or catalog...

Funny...I don't see that paint scheme on Porsche's car configurator...

"I'll take the Black/Speed Yellow checkerboard, please!"
