We received a pleasant surprise from AutoArt late Friday afternoon when it was confirmed that their long-delayed 1/18 scale Porsche 804 Formula 1 car would finally be released here in the US in the next few weeks. 
Porsche 804 Gurney Profile
It's been at least two years since the 804's status on AA's release schedule changed from 'Coming Soon' at the last minute to that dreaded purgatory of 'TBA' .

Happily, whatever issues caused the delay have been resolved and this impressive model will finally be available to collectors. Four versions have been produced, including the #30 car driven by Dan Gurney to his first - and Porsche's only - Formula One World Championship victory in the 1962 French Grand Prix at Rouen. 
8 Bonnier Porsche
A #8 Jo Bonnier version, as raced at the Nurburgring in the 1962 German GP is also on the way. 
Porsche 804 Gurney Figure
Both Gurney and Bonnier Porsches will also be available with driver figures in the cockpit. These will be released in Limited Editions of 1000.
Bonnier Cockpit
AutoArt has produced some very impressive models of late. Those of you who have seen their new Alfa Romeo 33 TT 12 will heartily agree. Based on the photos you will see below, this new Porsche will not disappoint. 
Porsche 804 Exploded
With high detail models from CMC nearing the $500 mark, AutoArt's Porsche 804 Grand Prix car delivers impressive detail at half the price. 
Porsche 804 Engine
Although Spark Model's recent Lotus 25 and Lotus 33 resin releases from the same era are fine models (and are part of my personal collection-as this one will be) the level of detail on this exquisite die-cast from AutoArt is certainly impressive.
Porsche 804 Cockpit
This model covers a lot of 'historic ground'. 
A must have for Gurney, Porsche and 1960s Formula One collectors!
Porsche 804 Rear
Three of the four versions of AutoArt's Porsche 804 Formula 1 car are due to arrive in early to mid September. The price on the Gurney Limited Edition is still 'TBA'. We will keep you advised.
