    What I do know is that its a Porsche 911 Turbo pedal car. It is not in the best of shape. Needs TLC as shown in the photos.

    What I don't know and would like to find out is:

    What year it was made?
    Was this maybe a promotional item made in limited numbers?
    Is it rare? (I found one or two on eBay but the ones I found were either a battery operated one or a new one with pedals but not the old style pedal in this car. The pedals were the newer bicycle type pedals).
    The sell value (if any) in its current state.

    And any other information that might be helpful which would be greatly appreciated.

      I just read your old post. I too just got the exact same car no motor same colour etc. I cant find any info about it, want to restore it. Did you learn anything?. I am in Canada.

      I know nadda, but might start by comparing what years this body style was used, it would give you a starting point, note would be produced before the turbo models and any small details that might be only used on one year production, example location of chrome, sticker placement, ect. That's how I start research. value is always determined by condition, and yours has some damage, but until rarity is determined, might be worth more dented in original state other than restored...

      Thats too bad, I asked my neighbour, if I find out anything I will let you know!
      Dont give up!

      oops should say "Wouldn't" be produced....

      If you do find anything out would definitely like to know. I still have it and actually another one that's not a Porsche. Keeping them just in case. Considering the condition mine is in, I doubt its worth much if anything though.

      Thanks again.

      Did some searching on eBay and did find a pedal car like mine except in a lot better condition. Not much info on it (estate find).

      Sold for a good price though. Doubt mine would sell for that much since it's not anywhere in the condition that one is. Sold on July 30.

      Thanks so much, the eBay photos are a great help to us, as we are restoring ours now.

      I just bought one of these and was wondering, is there a place to buy replacement parts? I need the rubber bumper corners or the sticker that goes over the engine compartment? :-(
