Lego's New 2,700-Piece Porsche 911 Is a Work of Art

Lego just officially confirmed that its massive 2,704-piece Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS set will be available on June 1 for the hefty sum of $300. Originally teased at the Nuremberg Toy Fair wearing dazzle camo to hide its curves and final design, the creation is quite simply a work of art.

Three C-notes is expensive for a Lego set, for sure. But it’s actually quite reasonable if you’ve always dreamed of owning a real Porsche 911 GT3 RS but don’t have $175,000 in your toy budget. At 1:8-scale, Lego had a lot of room to pack some impressive features into this model, so you won’t necessarily be disappointed to settle for a plastic version of your dream car.

The model features detailed, orange bodywork, red suspension springs, detailed headlights, taillights, brake calipers and rims with low-profile tires. The accessible cockpit features a detailed dashboard, working gearbox, steering wheel with gearshift paddles, racing seats and a glove compartment containing a unique serial number. Functions include opening doors and hood with storage compartment and suitcase, and an opening rear lid that houses a detailed flat 6 engine with moving pistons.

And don’t forget, you also don’t need to worry about insuring this Porsche, which might make coughing up $300 for the model a little easier.

This LEGO kit doesn’t look good. I really wish this 911 was not a Technic, but a model from the same line as the Mini Cooper, which is damn near flawless and includes a lot of nice details.

The gap between the headlight and bumper is awful and makes it very hard to accept that this is a 911 when it looks like a transformer that hit a wall head on.
