Just received a NIB Japanese Market Black Porsche 934. All I can say is WOW! Not a pure re-issue, but definately a true tribute to the first 58001 kit. This kit is serial number 01016 and comes with the bag. I've seen export kits with double digit serial numbers but without the bag. I've already nicknamed this one 'Sweet 16'. As for the contents, the box is full. Basically a 1/12 GT-01 Chassis with the added parts for that beautiful Black Plastic retro body. The Black Body is pure Vintage Tamiya with a new plastic clip system that mounts where the old metal body mounts were on the vintage kit. Some body parts trees such as the 'W' tree are identical to the original. The double decal sheet pays homage to the original Black Porsche but the windshield decal only says'Racing Team' and has a blank area where it used to say 'Porsche'. Instructions are basically for a standard GT-01 kit, with a supplemental insert for the Black Porsche Body. If you are an Old School guy like me, this is the kind of tribute kit I love to see. Kudos to Tamiya for putting small text inside the body parts to help identify the re-issue body parts from the vintage 1978 kit.
