The Corgi Porsche 924 became very common in the UK during the 1980s when it was used as a promotional model by Shell petrol stations. You were given tokens and could save up and swap them for Corgi Die-casts. Save a lot of tokens and you got a Burago 1:24 model. I know I was an Area Manager for Dorothy Perkins fashion stores at the time and covered hundreds of miles a week in my company Vauxhall and I saved the tokens. However this one is different in a number of  ways. The giveaway was black, it had a row of four spotlights at the front, it did not have Porsche Decals on the doors and had cast rear lights, not the decals this car has. Nor did it have a German licence plate

The core Porsche 924 was produced from 1978 to 1981. It is found in gold, metallic green and red, of these the metallic green one is hardest to find. You will also see a number of other  versions as rally cars and Police cars but these are under their own model numbers.

Below is another model from Chris Davidson's collection of excellent mint in box later release Corgis. More fine pictures taken in the stunning mountain scenery of the French Alps.
