911 Porsche World - - News And Views -

Lego is bring­ing pro­duc­tion of its smash-hit 911 GT3 RS Tech­nik model kit to a close. To cel­e­brate, Lego teamed up with Porsche to cap­ture one of the last kits ‘rolling off’ Porsche’s Zuf­fen­hausen pro­duc­tion line.

The 1:8 scale Lego Tech­nic Porsche with its iconic or­ange body­work made up of no fewer than 2704 pieces was first re­leased in 2016 and will be re­placed by a new model in 2019. 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 six en­gine with mov­ing pis­tons. The last few kits will be avail­able up un­til the end of 2018 £259.99.

The kit was pic­tured with Porsche work­ers and in­pro­duc­tion ve­hi­cles at the com­pany’s Zuf­fen­hausen pro­duc­tion line be­fore ap­pear­ing with a real life Porsche 911 GT3 RS as it ex­ited the site via the fa­mous streets that all Porsche cars travel down as they leave the com­pany’s HQ.
