The new LEGO Technic Porsche 911 GT3, Lego model number 42056, is officially coming this summer! …And it looks a little weird. As someone who was obsessed with LEGO as a child, an obsession that has been picked up by my own kids, I should love this Technic GT3 RS, but I don’t know if I do. Something is off in the gaps near the headlights and A-pillar for me. It looked better the first time we saw in pre-production black and camo. No word if it will be in only in Lava Orange or in black camo, too. But the rest of is seem pretty cool!
Edit: Added a video
The model looks to the have the typical Technic engine with moving pistons, transmission, steering, and suspension. Undoubtedly the front trunk, doors, and the rear engine cover will open. It’s difficult to speculate on any extras, but LEGO likes to throw surprised into sets like there. Reports are of shifter paddles, race seats and a glovebox with a unique serial number. There will also be custom fitted luggage in the front trunk, as in the real car. It would be really cool if it was radio controlled but that won’t happen here.
The 2700-piece, 1:8 scale, Porsche will be available this summer (that, 2016, in case you’re reading this in the future) and should sell for $300. The car will measure over 6” (17cm) high, will be 22” (57cm) long, and 9” (25cm) wide. It will also come with a “special full-color collector’s book including the history of LEGO® Technic and Porsche GT car.” It would make a nice match to my Unimog. It would be cool to see the Caterham and the Polonez, too. LEGO, can you hear us!? We want a Technic Polonez!!!
