LEGO Speed Champions 1974 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 (75895) Official Reveal

One of the few things that caught my attention when the LEGO Catalog for the 2nd half of this year came out was one particular LEGO Speed Champion set that is slated to be released in August. And this time around, LEGO finally gave us a closer look at its new LEGO Speed Champions 1974 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 (75895) set. Check out these images, and read on for the set’s official description.

1974 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 (75895)

You may immediately notice that the new 1974 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 (75895) set is basically a rehash of last year’s Porsche 911 RSR and 911 Turbo 3.0 (75888), with the latter coming in at a cool, lime green color. Both of these models come in as exact replicas, with the newer version featuring an all-white build. It also features a new minifigure driver character that sports a leather jacket on top of a shirt that predominantly features the Porsche logo.

Coming Soon: A New LEGO Speed Champions McLaren Set for 2019

LEGO has already revealed a handful of 2019 LEGO Speed Champion sets to watch out for in January, and it looks like the reveals doesn’t end there. A couple of days ago, the official Facebook page of McLaren Automotive shared a teaser on what’s building at LEGO HQ, particularly with regards to its speedster line of brick-built supercars. McLaren fans were quick to point out that the rear end of this next LEGO Speed Champions set belongs to one of the company’s most recent creation: the McLaren Senna. Just to be sure, this new 2019 LEGO Speed Champions set is not yet confirmed, though it should be noted that LEGO has already announced a LEGO Speed Champions McLaren Senna (75892) as part of its 2019 repertoire scheduled for release in January 1st.

This new set, if ever it turned out to be another Senna, sports a camouflaged finish on top of predominantly white pieces. The only turnoff from this set, like in any other LEGO Speed Champion set, is the vast amount of stickers that you need to apply in order to create that camouflaged effect. I can already feel my stubby, little  fingers complaining.

Now just to be clear, these are all speculations at the moment until such time that LEGO and McLaren do a full reveal.  Perhaps we’ll hear more about this collaboration soon enough just in time for the 2019 Nuremberg Toy Fairin Germany. For now, let’s just wait and see how things will turn out.
