Take note, Mattel: details matter.
Porsche 911 GT3 RS
2017 Fast & Furious #4
First of all, this is a nice casting, nice paint, decent wheels, properly implemented tampos including nice details like the Porsche logo and signalling lights. However, the spoiler hanging off the back in a half-assed way just totally wrecks the model. It makes it look terrible. And it wasn't just this one as a one-off, all of the examples on the pegs were similarly terrible.


The other weird thing about this car is that the packaging labels it as a Porsche 911 GT3 RS. The problem is that the wing is clearly from the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car, and in fact the base identifies it as a GT3 Cup as well. Very curious. Especially since the execution of rear wings on the rest of my GT3 Cup cars are not as poorly executed as every one of these blue ones I've seen in the stores.
