Theme Analysis

LEGO Technic is a solid theme returning average annualised growth of 6% across a large sample size with the Licensed sub-theme doing slightly better at 8%. It has become a LEGO theme we see as being very important to be selective with the sets you invest in.

Looking at some of the other motor vehicles in the theme we can see strong performance from the BMW R 1200 GS Adventure (42063) which has seen 160% growth in the 5 years since it retired (20% annualised growth) whereas LEGO Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 (42093) has only seen annualised growth of 5% since retiring in 2021.

Comparable Set Analysis

We have looked at the comparable Porsche sets where there has clearly been strong performance. The LEGO Technic set LEGO Porsche 911 GT3 RS (42056) has done amazingly well since retiring in 2018 with an RRP of $300 and is now worth nearly $800 (20% annualised growth).

In the LEGO Speed Champions theme there has been excellent gains made by LEGO Porsche 918 Spyder (75910) which has seen 460% growth since retiring in 2016 (27% annualised growth) and LEGO Porsche 919 Hybrid (75887) which has seen 240% growth since retiring in 2018 (27% annualised growth).

75887 Porsche 919 Hybrid December 2018 $15 $51 240% 27%


We think this is definitely a LEGO car to consider as a LEGO investment. From a consistent theme, with a strong brand name and strong comparators across all previous LEGO Porsche models and due to retire this year.

If looking for an alternative on a smaller budget we would definitely consider LEGO Speed Champions Porsche 963 (76916), the 5 previously retired LEGO Speed Champion Porsche models have seen average annualised growth of 25% as a group and this LEGO car is due to retire this year.
