LEGO Investor rating: BUY
Iconic. LEGO's 2704 piece rendition of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS is also a work of art - and like many of the very best works of art, its value is set to sky rocket over the years.
Why do we have a BUY rating on this set?
The level of detail is extraordinary. The Porsche engineering team worked on designing the set and it shows.
It is highly likely to retire soon. LEGO recently released the Technic Bugatti Chiron. The economics of the retail industry suggests there isn't space on the shelves or production capacity for both. LEGO wants all the hype to be for the new Chiron set. We think the Porsche 911 set will retire within the next 6 months.
LEGO car sets generally do well. Sets like this even more so, as they appeal in particular to those that can't afford the real thing but would shell out for the LEGO model (think Top Gear fans). It's highly collectible and demand will extend for years beyond its retirement,
Buy-in is currently at a decent level. RRP is £259.99 but Amazon has it at less.
We think this investment is a medium-term hold but can see prices rising by enough to make a strong profit soon after retirement.
LEGO Investor recommends you add this set to your portfolio now or you risk missing out on profitable investment and / or an amazing set simply to build.
