Porsche and Lego Technic have announced that production of the 1:8 scale 911 GT3 RS has ceased. The little scale model was launched back in 2016, priced at USD 299.99.
As a send-off for the iconic little Porsche, both companies got together and had the little Lego model rolling off Porsche’s Zuffenhausen production line, just like an actual Porsche.
Nicola Mellor, Lego Technic brand manager said, “LEGO Technic lets fans of iconic sports cars such as the Porsche 911 GT3 RS to Build For Real – and what better way to send off one of the final versions of this fan favorite set than to have it roll out of its spiritual home in Stuttgart. Fans looking to get their hands on one should zoom out to pick one up now – but Porsche fans should keep an eye out for even more exciting, authentic LEGO Technic builds in 2019!”
The 1:8 scale Porsche features 2,704 pieces, featuring a rather detailed bodywork, realistic headlights, brake callipers, low profile tires, and even red suspension springs. The interior of the little Lego features a detailed dashboard, working gearbox, steering wheel with paddle shifters, racing seats, and a glove compartment containing a unique serial number.
Fret not, as you can still purchase the cheapest Porsche 911 GT3 RS via selected online stores, including Lazada and Shopee.
As Porsche recently introduced the all-new 992-generation 911, we reckon that a new Lego model might just be around the corner.
