In the 1980s, Minia Porto-Juegos E Bringuedos LDA produced their own line up of 1:64 scale diecast cars in Portugal called "Novacar".

In 1989, the French toy company Majorette took over control of operations. They continued to issue models as Novacar made castings. Novacar made castings have plastic bodies and metal bases.
