I've always thought that the 917s were the most beautiful racing cars ever made and I've wanted a model of one of these for years. This particular 917 maybe doesn't quite have that mean-looking headlight arrangement of the other 917s, but ooohhhhh, that long tail...

Don't know just what exactly happened here, but when I saw your post, it triggered a long-time and deep-seated need in me to finally have models of these beautiful cars.
The 1:18 1971 Porsche 917 long-tail arrived the other day. A beautiful car... I have a 1971 917K and the 1970 917 long-tail #25 on order. Both 1:18.
I think I'm done now.

These 1:18 diecast models are from AUTOart. The #25 long-tail and the #3 "hippie" long-tail aren't entirely accurate as near as I can tell. The tail is more "up swept" than on the originals. Not sure about the #21 long-tail. But that's OK. These are beautiful models of beautiful racing cars.
I have the #20 "McQueen" 917K ordered, but it's on back-order status at the moment.

I have the McQueen car in 1/18 and several 1/43 variants - mostly Ks. Also a 1/64 1970 LeMans winner from Corgi.
But is there such a thing as 'enough' 917 memorabilia?
