Slot cars now in production

The pre-production Courage

The Spirit Courage is expected to arrive Sept 25-28, and the Spirit 936, BMW and 406 Peugeot are now being produced as well. Another bit of news is that the motor in the Porsche 936 is not the older SX01 it is a new motor with no official name yet, but the rpm rating is 21000 rpm. The motor is shown below in the 936 chassis.
Thanks to slot brother Joe Yount for the photo.

Scalextric has the 2006 Porsche RS Spyder in production. I've shown a photo of the #7 car but I don't know what the number will be on the Scalex car...forgot to ask!

The Carrera Nascar Cars of Tomorrow are in production as well...

It's strange to see the Cingular markings now that they've changed the name to AT&T.

A very good point Dave. Um...I'm pretty sure that the Cingular logo will be on the production car...I can't say more than that.

I know that senior people from Carrera's home office look at this site so maybe they can "officially" answer.
