Will there be a lego porsche 944

    short answer, No.

    Long answer: it's not Iconic enough for a retro model like the F40, VWs or Mini Coopers. and it has no modern day counterpart, nothing that is a direct heritage to the car so Porsche wont be incentivized to have one made. and on top of all of that I am not sure the car has even half the popularity to sell sets that it would need to be considered. now had you asked about the 959 we'd be having a much different discussion (one that happened often when the F40 was rumored)

    Bearing in mind we've had a variety of Porsche cars in the Speed Champions range, I'm not going to rule it out - 'Classic Speed Champions' perhaps? I can't imagine that a larger scale version will be made though - 911, Countach, Testarossa (Veyron, Zonda, P1, XJ220) are in front of it there...

    They should make a Porsche 928 though.

    I'd like to see a Lotus Esprit, both the original S1 Giugiaro design and a Peter Stevens / Julian Thomson version, preferably an S4s as, according to Lotus engineers, that was the best version they ever made, handling and performance-wise... Plus I used to own one, pre-children... :-)

    I don't see that ever happening though... :-(

    Pre-children I owned a Skoda! I certainly don't want one of those in brick form!

    Felicia Estate in case anyone is wondering. A fantastic little car - I was sad when it's upkeep started getting too much to keep.

    I would like to see a Mk1 golf gti to go with the beetle and camper. It too is as iconic as either of those 2 and would be a nice addition to make a jolly VW trio, preferably in white and preferably an original 70s 4 speed too. Either that or a last of the line campaign edition with exclusive Pirelli p slot wheels in lhasa green.

    It's not the only thing that doesn't make sense...

    Also, looks like we'll be getting a Veryon speed champ set next year, according to the leaks thread...

    That sounds good, I have to say I've been pleasantly impressed with the speed champions.
