Spied: Lego Porsche 911 Prototype Kit Debuts at German Toy Fair

Lego Technic Porsche 911

This must be the first time we’ve ever covered spy photos from of a camouflaged prototype Porsche 911 made of . . . Legos. First uncovered by Lego site, which appears to have sourced photos from forums, the upcoming Porsche 911 Technic kit debuted at the Spielwarenmesse toy show in Nuremberg, Germany. Incredibly, Lego appears to have kept Porsche’s swirly camouflage design—which it slathers over future products it wants to keep under visual wraps—which looks awesome.

So far, the Porsche 911 kit appears to have a part number and packaging, indicating it’s ready to go on sale, should Lego decide to sell it. Unlike recent Lego car models such as the VW camper, Mini Cooper, and Ferrari F40, the Porsche is a Technic kit, a slightly different style that uses special pieces. Other recent automotive-themed Technic models include a Mercedes-Benz Unimog and a Mercedes-Benz Arocs heavy-duty truck. We’ll need to wait for the Porsche’s full debut—and appearance in Lego’s catalog—for pricing and availability, but don’t expect to pay anything less than $100 for one.
