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?
