New LEGO Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Targa set emulates 70s and 80s classics
Each LEGO Porsche 911 features the hallmarks of its namesake. There's an aerodynamic shoulder line, angled headlamps, a sculpted bonnet with Porsche badge, and a rear-mounted flat-six engine. Both models feature 2+2 sport seats and a dark orange dashboard. A handbrake, gearshift, and functional steering are included. The models' front seats tilt forward allowing access to the rear bench seats.
There's also distinctive badging, a wide rear axle, turbocharger and intercooler, denoting its blistering performance credentials that make the car identifiable as a Turbo model. The rear spoiler is integrated and the roof can be stored underneath the hood of the car.
Mike Psiaki, Design Master at the LEGO Group, commented: "Taking ownership of a brand-new sports car is an experience to savour and this is a feeling we wanted to recreate for LEGO fans.
"As we were designing the car, the hardest decision to make was whether we would make the Turbo or Targa variant of the car. It was such a tough call that we engineered the ability to build the LEGO Porsche 911 Turbo and Targa from a single set. Without doubt, fans of the 911 all over the world who have long admired these cars will love the opportunity to build both versions!"
LEGO recommends the set for adults ages 18 and up. It contains 1,458 pieces.
