LEGO Issues Official Statement Regarding Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS (42056) Instructions

LEGO Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS (42056)

LEGO has released an official statement in the LAN regarding the gear instruction issue for the LEGO Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS. A few other reviews out there have expressed concern that the gears weren’t shifting in the correct order. If you read the statement below, LEGO did take this point into consideration and decided that the way that it was built in the instructions gave more of a smoother experience but that’s up for the individual builders to decide which way to build it.

Thank you to all our dedicated fans for the comments regarding the GT3 RS by LEGO Technic.

It is correct that the gears in this model are not sequential as in the real Porsche PDK. This is however, a deliberate decision taken to ensure that we make the best possible LEGO version of this amazing car that both meets our design requirements and gives everyone a great building and product experience.

It was a considered decision taken during development that the gears running in the correct order meant that it did not result in a great experience when driving the car. Too many gears are engaged at the same time and smooth running with all those tolerances is just not possible.

If you switch the build in steps 267 and 269 the gears will run sequentially, and everyone who feels that this is the better solution should feel encouraged to do so.

LEGO Technic really is the ultimate open source design product and now that it is finally available, we

LEGO Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS (42056) Details

Back at the Nuremberg Toy Fair, LEGO revealed the LEGO Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS (42056) that will be coming out later this year but there were no details on it. Our friends over at PromoBricks has found out some concrete info on it including the release date of August 1 and will be priced at €299 and £249 which was revealed at the London Toy Fair.

In addition, a Swiss online shop does not mention that there are any batteries included like the other Technic sets so we can assume there are no Power Functions in the set so the pricing of the set will be mostly on the parts count which is still unknown at this time.

Another small detail that Michael has given is that the Porsche 911 GT3 RS will be a “lava orange” color and not the prototype camouflage that is shown in the image above which car makers use to disguise their future models.

Given some of the details, are you still on board with the LEGO Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS (42056) or has it deterred you somewhat?
