Hot Wheels Flying Colors Porsche Carrera
1975 was the second year of the Flying Colors series for Hot Wheels. It was also the year that this Porsche made its debut. This particular one here today is the earliest version of what would soon become the “P-911”. How soon? How about halfway through the first year of production. Hot Wheels retooled the molds which removed “Porsche” from the rear end and changed the base from “Porsche Carrera” to “P-911”. The other tell tale sign of an early production version is the use of the cap style redline wheel for the front and through-hole style wheels on the rear. It’s amazing how detailed this casting was when it first came out 45 years ago.
