Mixed fillingsI have mixed feelings about this model. For me this model has a feeling of being rushed at the end of development cycle.
On one hand side really detailed, with complex gearbox (it's awesome). On the other hand errors in manual and some playability issues.
The one which annoyed me the most is:
Step 162: You are asked to use black cross axle 12m
Step 221: Shows that it should be black cross axle 10m (you can figure it out steps earlier, but here is final proof)
Fortunately there is enough room for cross axle 12m in there.
Other issues involves non sequential gearbox (1-3-2-4) from instruction. You can fix it by swapping axels with gears between steps 267 and 269.
- invisible pistons and gearbox
when you buy lego technic you do it because you would like to see it move after building
- huge turning radius
If it would be only about minor issues I would give this model perfect score. Lego is about changing what you consider not fun enough.
As I said at the beginning this set feels rushed for me. I can't speak for all Lego fans but I would be totally happy to hear "(marketing blah blah blah) We are sorry but because this model is so complex we were not able to finalise it on time. We need X months more for it. Only the best Lego experience is good enough for Us. (more marketing blah blah blah)".
One time error is not an error, it's gathering experience.

Amazing modelI would start off by saying this thing is no where near a toy. The level of detail is amazing and the use of the bendy cables to give simulated curves is brilliant. This thing is solid with all the bit I would of liked to see on a high end build. Build over 2 days, literally couldn't put it down. Although I would suggest a large area for setting the pieces out.

Missing partsThis is a great kit. I'm having a blast putting it together, and it is really well designed.
Why a one star review?
This kit comes in four boxes. The parts separated in the sequence that you will need them, which is really helpful when you are dealing with 2700 plus parts. I was almost finished assembling all the parts from the first box when I found out a couple of parts were missing. I even sorted thru the next three boxes looking for the parts so I could keep going. The missing part is one of the smallest and simplest parts of the model, couldn't be worth more than 10 cents, and I had to stop and put the model aside to get the parts. Lego ws great with accepting the missing parts order. I've waited two weeks since they said the parts were on the way. Totally lost interest in the model and tired of waiting. This is a total quality designed kit and after paying almost $300 for a model car you would think all the parts would be there.
I'm a very patient man, I understand some things take time, but I believe these parts must be coming from Europe for as long as this is taking. I pity anybody who buys this kit for a kid who gets into the model and then has to put it aside.
Lego needs to pay more attention to counting out parts.

A challenging and rewarding build!This was my first Lego Technic build in over 15 years, and I must admit it was a great build to get me back into the range. The presentation of the set is by far the most impressive ever seen by Lego. Opening the box instantly shows the effort put into the development of this set. It feels like a premium collectors piece worthy of the high price tag.
The build itself is straightforward, and will give little problems if giving it 100% concentration. Unlike other technic sets that focus on mechanics first and presentation second, this set is truly about its looks. Whilst all the internal workings are hidden by panels and the steering has a lot of play in it, this set is a must have for any Porsche or Lego enthusiast. I hope Lego will invest in future 1:8 scale builds.
