As we discussed previously, there is a new LEGO Speed Champions expansion pack that is now available for players of Forza Horizon 4. Forza Horizon 4 is a racing video game developed for the Xbox One and Windows 10. The game originally featured three vehicles from the LEGO Speed Champions line; the McLaren Senna (available in the #75892 LEGO Speed Champions McLaren Senna set), the Ferrari F40 Competizione (available in the #75890 LEGO Speed Champions Ferrari F40 Competizione set), and the 1967 Mini Cooper S Rally (available in the #75894 LEGO Speed Champions 1967 Mini Cooper S Rally and 2018 MINI John Cooper Works Buggy).

Recently, another LEGO vehicle was added to the game. The 1974 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 is available as the first barn find in the game. Barn finds are basically abandoned vehicles that are available when you upgrade your Master Builder House in LEGO Valley. Once you find it, it will be added to your garage. Below is a short clip of what the vehicle looks like in game.
While the Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 in the game, a lime-green version was released as a real LEGO car back at the beginning of 2018 in the #75888 LEGO Porsche 911 RSR and 911 Turbo 3.0 set. It is one of the most popular LEGO Speed Champions vehicles due to the great design and few stickers (fits well in LEGO City setups). As an interesting move, LEGO decided to re-release the set in white to match the vehicle in the game. The #75895 LEGO Speed Champions 1974 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 is now available at LEGO retailers like Amazon and the Online LEGO Shop.
The lime-green and white versions of the Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 are identical except for the design and placement of some of the stickers. In the video-review below, JANGBRiCKS will show you the white version of the vehicle, and also compares in to the lime-green one.
The white version of the Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 is a welcome addition to the LEGO Speed Champions line. Collectors love to have different colors of the same vehicle, so this set especially appeals to them. In addition, both colors of the Porsche fit well in LEGO City settings. And for those who play the game, it’s great that now they can own matching LEGO sets of all four vehicles. You can find them at the LEGO Speed Champions section of the Online LEGO Shop.
What do you think? Do you play the Forza racing games? And what do you think of the LEGO Speed Champions expansion pack and vehicles?

I would love to have more examples of recolors. The MINI would look great in blue, or dark-green!
Cool. I like both the lime and the white version. The only thing with the like version is that the piece used for the headlights is a noticeably different shade of lime
Guys, there is a new LEGO Forza video on youtube and it has the Imperial Flagship in it! Does this mean they are going to bring this set back? Please? Admin, can you find out?
Is this the video you’re referring to? https://youtu.be/80SIA2EOvjQ I would love to see a re-release of the Imperial Flagship, but LEGO is not going to tell us ahead of time if that’s the plan. However, if we start to see more teasers like this, it could be possible. 😉
Yes, that, the one! I do hope they bring back the Imperial Flagship. I missed out on it, and we haven’t seen a ship for a while.
Hmmm, a lot of that stuff seems just like random throwbacks. I wouldn’t put much hope in it…
Thanks for the heads up. I’m glad they released the white Porsche. I just wish they also released the Mini as an individual set. I don’t care for the other car in that set. All I want is the Mini.
