Por-SHUH. Por-SHUH. Por-SHUH. Maybe I’ll remember it better if I link it to “Marcia! Marcia! Marcia!” Some of you will get that.
I get grief for a lot of things, and my pronouncement of “Porsche” is near the top of the list. I was defiant at first, as everyone I knew said “Porsche” as a one-syllable word growing up. But “Por-SHUH” is correct, and one day I will change my habit. Hard habit to break. As you can see here:
That is one cool Por-SHUH. The C Case might be a bit of a dud, but man it isn’t because of the Super Treasure Hunt. This Porsche 934.5 Super is an instant classic.
I have tried to figure out the definition of a great Super Treasure Hunt, but ultimately it comes down to a lot of things. Sometimes it is how “upgraded” the model is, other times it is the overall look of the model, no matter what it is. I still contend that the best Super TH Hot Wheels has ever done is the Mooneyes Dodge Van, mainly because it checks off every box. This Porsche is up there as well.
Deco-wise the only addition is the TH on the rear. But the paint really changes the look, and those Aero Real Riders, in plain racing white, are just fantastic. The deco is simple, on both the standard issue and the Soup. And considering it is a vintage racing Porsche, it works. Honestly, if this Super was sitting in a Car Culture blister – with maybe a little more detail – I would be thrilled with it.
Plain and simple, it is beautiful. Will it be the best of the year? Only time will tell, but it is notable in what has been a great start to the run of Supers here in 2018:
A Japanese pickup, a muscle car, and a Euro Racer. And coming soon, a current Mustang, a JDM Skyline, and a race car. Nice, right?
There were some stars in the Super TH lineup of 2017, but overall it wasn’t as strong as previous years. That is certainly not the case this year.
