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.

Spent a lot of time but worth it!I would rather describe it as an artwork. Really impressive by the curve outside and the gears and engine inside. But something need to be mentioned is that the PDK gearbox sequence is wrong. Also, the double engagement of PDK occurs frequently which can totally stop the gears from functioning. It's a disappointing flaw. If you want to own this model and have a better functional chasis, you may need to search for some fan-made improvement (e.g., on Eurobricks forum). Thankfully we have talented designer in LEGO group AND talented fans all over the world. Together we may see more extrodinary models.

Worth the money!I can't believe how much detail and effort the lego designers put in this set, taking three years to develop! I had such an amazing experience putting the 4 speed transmission together, then continuing with the interior, after the body work of the Porsche. You get an code ingraved in a 1 X 4 white tile that give you special access to a certificate and pictures. Without any mortors or anything in the way, they could've add HOG steering as a option to the builder but, I really wish they could've make this an RC because there is plenty room to add a servo and a XL mortor. I'm still completely satisfied with the product although it lacks some features it should've had!

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.
