Just Unveiled: Hot Wheels Porsche Series Exclusive 8-car set...

We had heard rumors of this set for several months, then it was confirmed last month, and now we know what to look forward to.

A photo has emerged of the brand new Hot Wheels Porsche Series.  It will feature eight models in unique liveries on special cards, similar to last year's Mustang Series:


The list of models:

- Porsche 914-6
- Porsche Boxster Spyder
- Porsche 918 Spyder
- Porsche Carrera GT
- Porsche 917K
- Porsche 935/78
- Porsche 959
- Porsche 993 GT2

There are some great models in the lineup, most notable for us the RWB-inspired 993, the 914-6, and the 935/78.  There are some models we would rather not see as well, led by the disastrous Boxster Spyder, which is unfortunately a very poor casting of a very cool car.

But aside from the casting choices, the highlight of this set in undoubtedly the artwork.  It is rare for the artwork to outshine the model, but that appears to be the case here.  The card art is fantastic.

We assume this set will be exclusively at Walmart here in the US, just as the Mustang set was, and will offered with hobby dealers in other countries.  Release date is unknown.

Who is in?

  2. May buy 2 or 3 of them, but certainly not the entire series; only the few I really like.

  3. I am so in. I will get 2 sets because as you aid John, the artwork is great on this set but I am diehard DLM.

  4. I may take them all! Don't know if the 935 will be any better than the HW's Racing RoadRCR 935 I just picked up, but we'll see.
    959!!!

  5. Oh wow! I've got to get me all of these. They are all great selections, BUT! I wish they had included a Turbo RSR. Nevertheless, its a great lineup.

  6. I published the same subject earlier today in hot kengas, this collection will arrive in the coming months here in Brazil, so it is not unique to Walmart, this information is not entirely correct ...

    1. I was only referring to Walmart in the US. It will be distributed to several other channels in various countries.

  7. Walmart Canada has been doing resets in their toy department for a few weeks now. The pegs for this series have already been assigned and labeled. The price in Canada will be $2.46 each.

  9. Awesome! I'm so glad they brought back the 959. That car needed to come back. And the fact that Hot Wheels didn't ruin it with colored wheels or windows or stupid side stripes makes it even better. This is how it should be. Signature red, clear windows and thats it. I hate the wheels they used though. Those look good on muscle cars, not on a game-changing European supercar. They should have used one of the modern looking wheels like PR5. Other than that, every other model looks fine. Love the 918 Spyder and 935. The GT2 looks good as well.

    If this set shows up in my city, I'm definitely going to buy them!

  10. Hopefully the Uk will get these, and if we do, they will be coming home with me.

  11. Wish the 918 wasn't the same wheel/color scheme as it's debut... Also wish they'd make the hardtop production version instead of the spyder concept. Still waiti for the HW 911 Turbo S

  13. If I see them I'll get a few unless they are at silly/ greedy prices. However stuff like this rarely seems to come to the UK - unless one is patient and strikes lucky at Poundland!

  22. I have one of the 914-6, and it is facing to the left, not the right. Does this make it more valuable?
