Lego Porsche 991 GT3 RS
I’ve been a huge LEGO fan all my life, which is why this awesome Lego Porsche 991 GT3 RS makes me all happy inside. That being said, this is not the first time the danish brand has something to do with supercars: indeed, they’ve been releasing all sots of LEGO supercars in the past decade (F40, Porsche 918, LaFerrari & McLaren P1… among others). Most are under their « Lego Technic » department.
Anyways, this awesome orange Lego Porsche 991 GT3 RS looks fairly easy to build. As far as scale goes, it looks roughly close to the 1:8 model scale (though according to a reader who actually owns one – lucky bastard – it’s a bit more). However, there is a HUGE factor that might make you not buy this piece: its price. Indeed, this toy apparently costs $299,99 USD. Basically, that’s 300 bucks for a toy car that doesn’t look as good as a miniature car. Sure, you’ve built it yourself and it’s somewhat different, but it’s no BBR. Sadly, I don’t think all Porsche fans will be able to afford this one. So if you’re looking to get your hands on one, either you wait for prices to drop (which I doubt they will), either… I don’t know man, you’ll figure it out. For the moment, here’s a video of the car being unboxed & detailed:
Now for a few official pictures:
