The 1987 Porsche 944 Dirtmeister by Hot Wheels

To commemorate Porsche’s 75th anniversary, Hot Wheels, Porsche, and Mobil 1 unveiled an extraordinary masterpiece at the Rennsport Reunion 7, the Dirtmeister, a modified 1987 Porsche 944.

Key Features:

  1. Shooting Brake Upgrade: From Kudensport, this upgrade transforms the car’s profile into a two-door wagon-like appearance.
  2. Custom Roll Cage: Crafted by the famed Jimco Racing, it adds to the car’s rally credentials.
  3. Off-Road Tech: The vehicle is equipped with Trophy Truck tech, such as:
    • Coilover shocks paired with Eibach springs.
    • High-grip Pirelli tires.
    • Bright Triple R LED lights for night-time rally stages.
  4. Navigation & Communication: The 944 boasts Garmin’s Baja Tread XL navigation system and PCI’s race radio system for seamless connectivity during rallies.
  5. Interior: Recaro seats ensure both the driver and passenger remain secure and comfortable throughout any rally.

Hot Wheels’ Legacy with Porsche:


The Dirtmeister isn’t just any collaboration. It’s a nod to the over 50-year partnership between Hot Wheels and Porsche. Starting with the Redline Porsche 917 in 1970, Hot Wheels has crafted 54 unique Porsche models. Additionally, the Dirtmeister will be the first Porsche to grace the Hot Wheels’ Garage of Legends, a prestigious lineup of some of the brand’s most iconic models, including the likes of the Twin Mill, Bone Shaker, Deora II, Beach Bomb, and unique Chevrolet Camaro models.

Where to see the Dirtmeister next?

If you missed the unveiling, worry not! The car will lead the first-ever Hot Wheels Legends Rally and will be showcased at the Hot Wheels Legends Tour event on October 7 at the Hot Wheels’ California HQ. This event celebrates the ingenuity of custom car builders from 15 different countries, giving them a shot at transforming their build into a toy car.

Rennsport Reunion 7:

Lastly, for the uninitiated, the Rennsport Reunion 7, which started on September 28, is an exhilarating event at the Raceway Laguna Seca in California. Porsche has planned a plethora of activities for the weekend, including the much-anticipated introduction of the Mission X concept to America.

To sum it up, whether you’re a car enthusiast, a toy collector, or both, the 1987 Porsche 944 Dirtmeister is an amalgamation of rich history, modern technology, and sheer passion for automobiles.
