Video: 1/8 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 engine model by Marushin

miniature carrera rs engine modelThe 1/8 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 engine by Marushin is not just another scale model. This one actually works and can do up to 5,500 RPM!

Japanese company Marushin created this tiny masterpiece under license agreement from Porsche AG.

The engine consists of over 500 component parts, plus hundreds of screws. It has a functioning crankshaft, pistons, camshafts, rocker arms and valves.

Exhaust box is made of metal and the air intake cowling is plastic, just like on the original full scale engine.

If you are into scale models, this is something every Porschephile would like to have in their little collection, unfortunately it is not available for sale.

  1. Dear Sirs,

    Thank you for exhibiting this fine model engine in the web. I am owning three issues of this rare kit I bought at least 15 years ago, and I never dared to touch them. Instead, I am keeping them stored as collector’s items. Therefore, I would be interested in learning which value they might have today. Could you please give me an idea?
    Thank you for your efforts I am politely asking for.

    Best regards

    Rudolf Placht
