  • Porsche 911 GT3 - Was this done at the factory?

    I found these in a bag of random loose diecast cars at the thrift store. Was this strange paint job done at the factory?

    Even the interior is painted gold.

    The bases on both these cars are also painted gold. I have searched the internet high and low and cannot find any info on these and why they look like they've been "spray panted" with gold paint. The castings do not appear to have been tampered with and the paint does not look or feel like it was applied afterwards by a previous owner. Whats are these? Anybody have a clue? It looks pretty crappy to me.

    I'd say no. If it was a Majorette factory release I doubt the windshield would be gold, plus the fact that there is a colour underneath.

      Yeah I agree. It's a shame someone would ruin these castings. They are like $5-$6 new.

        I wouldn't think the factory would do any painting after it's fully assembled like that either, It is a curious thing why someone would, but possibly they served as holiday ornaments or for other displays of some sort.

        I'm reminded of this video James posted in another thread (https://www.diecastgarage.org/node/153641), perhaps a previous owner was considering using these Majorettes for a craft project.
