Images of two more Technic sets from 2019 have emerged on Promobricks, following the earlier unveiling of a few smaller Technic models on the shelves at Mastermind Toys in Canada.

You can view official images of both sets, including the impressive 42096 Porsche 911 RSR, after the break...

Not very big difference from the orange Porsche..?

Power Functions in a 2019 set? I thought PF is gone and Powered Up is the current electronic system. The Porsche looks great, even better then 42056 in my opinion.

Wow. I love the Porsche. Better than the previous one IMO. Not a technic fan but damn this rendition is good!

I was just looking at the pictures of the cheaper sets and feeling a definite meh-vibe, but that Porsche really looks the part - and while it is disappointing, that the remote controlled vehicle is only an updated version of the current it is interesting to see pf in a 2019 set as noted above.

@HoMA I said the same thing about the recently re-released Vestas Wind Turbine

That 911 is sick. I wonder how the scale is compared to the orange one.

that Porsche is ugly ! if they can't build it properly with technic parts they shouldn't do it

The Porsche looks great, the rest are a bit meh.

The Porsche and the Stunt Racer photos originate from a YouTube video of dubious origin but undoubtedly exceptional image quality of official photos.

That Porsche looks the same scale as the Orange one to me.

That Porsche is going to hurt resellers of 42056, and if the stunt racer proves as much fun as it's predecessor it's surely another winner.

Imagine if they did the Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

are those new huge sprockets ? Also, on the front of the porche there's the wheel bucket's 1/4 circle gear in black!

You guys actually like this Porsche? I think it is very ugly

I recently became a Technic fan after I bought the 42055 Bucket Wheel Excavator and the 42082 Rough Terrain Crane. And I just bought the 42038 Arctic Truck second hand. I wonder what the parts list looks like for the 42095 Remote-Controlled Stunt Racer. If this one comes with the same set of PF parts than I'd prefer this one over the 42065 RC Tracked Racer and wait a little longer. Besides, is that rear sprocket a new part? If so I'd like them in black.

As for the 42096 Porsche 911 RSR, it seems to be about the same size as the GT3 RS version, so I would guess it also costs similarly. It looks absolutely fantastic IMO, but I'll wait a few months for a price drop. Not because I think this set is unjustifiably expensive, €299,99 would just be a little too much for me.

Now we're talking. Love the livery on the Porsche! Yes, please!

@nicola80 the wheel bucket's 1/4 circle gear in black is in the 42082 Rough Terrain Crane. If you are looking to buy just that part the LEGO bricks and pieces site has it for EUR 1.21

@HoMa. Lego can keep their powered up. In my opinion, power functions and an SBrick is superior at this point.

Love all the creative building techniques on the Porsche. It's always fun to see existing parts used in new ways. I do wonder at what point Technic might transition over to the Powered Up system, though. Right now there are a lot of types of Power Functions elements that we still have yet to see in Powered Up.

@shaase: With the wind turbine, there was at least the justification of it being a re-release. As such it was probably a lot easier to use the same electronics than to adapt it to a new system (not to mention, I don't know for sure if Powered Up is reversible in the same sense, with the motor also doubling as a power generator for light elements). But in this case it is a bit odd that LEGO is still holding off on releasing Powered Up elements more tailored to use in Technic sets.

@CreativeTim The Stunt Racer comes with two large motors instead of medium. The Porsche is supposed to be about $150 if I remember correctly.

Love the Porsche. The race car livery does it for me that the GT3RS's orange couldn't. Can't wait!

By in Czech Republic,

I think that the Stunt Racer is a step down on the Tracker Racer. Note that the (front) sprocket wheel lies flat on the ground, whereas on the Tracked Racer it was raised. It means that the older model was much better in negotiating obstacles than the new one. Also, the distance between the two main wheels is almost double compared to the older one (8 versus 5 track links), a liability when going over rough terrain. It also seems to have a significantly higher center fo gravity, but this is hard to guess from a picture. Anyway, looking forward to a traditionally thorough Bricklink review. Can we hope for Racer Face-off?

Love the Porsche, but it’s interesting theyre doing another...it looks like this one might be smaller than the last one?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Comparing the parts used in the new Porsche to those used in my Orange one, it seems like the new one is the same length, but about 4-6 studs narrower leading me to worry it will have strange proportions...

42065 and 42095... Lego version of 'If 6 was 9'?

By in United Kingdom,

The Porsche, not sure about the front and rear bumpers, they look very off scale and chunky

Gravatar
By in United States,

The remote control stunt racer is a safe bet from LEGO given that the RC tracked racer from the year before sold so well. The Porsche looks interesting, I’d guess around 1500-2000 pcs with a likely MSRP of $150 since it doesn’t appear to have power functions. The front and rear end look a bit too cluttered for my taste though. We’ve been getting lots of racing models since the 24 hour racer from 2015, so I assume they’ve been selling well and we’re likely to see even more in the future. Too many though and they may start to become stale...still, it’s a welcome departure from the older days of boxy trucks being released every other year.

I love the headlights on that Porsche. That was the weak point of the previous Technic Porsche in my opinion. Seems like it would be easy to add light elements inside. Is that transparent cover a new part? I have to see what is the ratio between printed parts / stickers before making the final decision but this is very tempting to add to my collection... :P

By in Australia,

I absolutely love it...and I'm not even a big fan of Technics but you wouldn't think so if you saw my collection.
Just when I think I'm safe and won't be buying any more big sets, Lego comes out again with something amazing as this, it will have to join my other Porsche.
Thanks Lego for keeping me eternally broke.

The scale of the Porsche looks to be about the size of 42077 Rally Car (same wheels/tires), just a little longer. It's hard to tell, but it doesn't appear to have a gear box, and most of the pieces are for the outside shell/paneling. I do want to see what it looks like without stickers, since I never put stickers on my Technic sets (so parts can be used for other creations).

I'm thinking those large sprockets will be expensive on BL. At least in 1st half sets, that appears to be the only set that has them.

@M.Jibril Where did you find out that it will have two L motors?

Like the Porsche, hate Technic

This must be one of the alternative designs for the Porchse 42056, then they thought 'lets put this aside for another 2 years, then use this once the 42056 retires.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Torn on the Porsche. Part of me wants it to be the exact same size/scale as the GT3, so can be displayed next to each other and look proper. If, and I assume it is yet to be confirmed, it is the same size, it's a yes from me. If not, probably wont bother

Gravatar
By in Indonesia,

I hope the Porsche comes with lots of printed parts, else looking pretty close to sticker-hell!

Having the #42056 GTR 3RS already in my collection I am wondering what changes/improvements (other than bodywork) Lego have made with regard to Technic and engineering. Will the PDK gearbox be the same or improved, less resistance in the drive-train, prepared for Power Functions, etc.???

I'll wait for the reviews before deciding whether this one's worth adding to my collection!

By in Jordan,

@jimmer If you do a Google image search the box should come up. It shows the PF parts on the side.

Also, for those who are wondering, the new Porsche is smaller than the orange one. The Brothers Brick article has the exact measurements for those interested.

By in Australia,

I think the Porsche looks just as big as the orange GT3. The wheel arches are identical no?

Gravatar
By in Japan,

Just got my set today. You shouldn't compare this set to the orange GT3 (I own both of them). This is a medium set, with only 1580 bricks, even the package is on the same level as the F1 (42000) or 24hours racing (42039). Bags do not provide number grouping so you know this is not supposed to be a huge set.

Another very obviously different to the bigger brother: this set come with a LOT of stickers....... something hardcore fans dislike...
