I'm curious if it has any B-model. I guess it hasn't any or it has just some kind of modification like roadster version without roof.

Could be, i guess they include instructions for maybe a Cayman or so, should be possible to build from these parts.

This already was a must buy for me and I think this seals the deals42056_Box3_in.jpg

Looks like we might me seeing some orange supercar MOCs now

They kept the awkward paddle shifters and it has a 4 speed gearbox which is a bit disappointing.

Engine has some nice detail, and new black panels.

Its a little underwhelming in a few areas and 300 dollars is a lot of cash, but I still like it.

Also the Brickset article is a great read

Well looks great, but piece per price is awful.Technic isnt star wars...I dont think if this will be collector item in few years.

And will be there any difference beetween 1 july version and 1 august version?I didnt read any difference.

The price is poor, bit I need to get it only because of orange!

It is a shame having in a such great car a four speed gearbox

I don't like those wheelarches

A few interesting quotes

"will initially be available at shop.LEGO.com from June 1st, 2016"

So no August release date online

"Furthermore, the elements of the individual assembly groups are packed in separate boxes for the first time and, together with the detailed instructions, provide an insight into the assembly process of the actual vehicle."

Sounds a bit like 8448 to me which is nice

"Consequently, the LEGO model also features a few rough edges that give it identity and character"

Nice excuse for some flaws Lego :grin:

" Inside the box you’ll discover a special collector’s book chronicling the history of LEGO Technic and Porsche GT cars, together with 4 original-design rims bearing the RS emblem....Delivered in luxurious box packaging."

Sounds like a special box maybe like 41999? I also like the sound of a collectors book included

I think an orange toggle joint on top of a black toggle joint may have looked better in the corners of the windshield..

From brickset interview;

"... we decided upon using the current 911 GT3 RS as the first vehicle in this LEGO Technic series."

So more Porsches, other supercars or just the 2016 technic line-up?

"...playing with the six-cylinder boxer engine..."

I doubt, that it will be a boxer motor. I guess it will be a 180 degree V-motor! At least from the picture it seems not to be a boxer engine.

"... fully functional Porsche double-clutch transmission..."

What? A double-clutch? Really? I would kiss the designers feet ... :blush::laugh:
