Well I have a Daytona coupe on order, and some more engine upgrade kits. This will be next after this one is filled.

I was around when these were new . One of me Cousins and her Husband bought one new . It was hated as it was intened to be a VW Mid Engine Sports car . Porschephiles ran away in droves . The failure in the Market Place led to stopping Production before Amortization was met . Yes , valuable today because Low Production . I do have two of these in my string and I am considering a less popular 914-4 with the VW Bus Engine it was originally designed to be . Porsche did NOT have anything balanced to compete in the Mid Engined Automotive Scene on the drawing Boards . Marketplace demands forced this misguided action . Thanx ..

 I like my 914/6 gt as much as my 356's, 911 and 912.  The 914 is by far the best handling you are correct the Porsche geeks did hate it (faster and cheaper than there 911's). 

No none of them are built as will as my new Toyota and yes all are about the same quality as my 56 VW beetle.   Still they are all fun cars.  We have had it 20+ years and plan on keeping it.     I can not wait to get my hands on this trans kit.

The operable trunk lid and its hinges are difficult to cast. And having built the Revell kit we're not sure the resin hinges will be sturdy enough. Therefore the body is now going to be cast with the trunk lid in place.  The engine cover will still be functional. The kit will be offered at under $100.  The final price is still to be determined.

I have edited my original post photos to show the final version of the kit.  We hope you all will like the kit.
