Since the early 1960s, the Porsche 911 has proven to be a worthy competition car on the track as well as a status symbol off of it. First named the 901 until Peugeot got their undies in a wad over the 901 classification and forced Porsche to swap the numbering to 911. (Peugeot’s argument was that using any three-digit classification that had zero as the middle digit was grounds for a legal dispute.)
Still, more than a half-century later, the legendary two-door, rear-engine Porsche 911 has become a mainstay symbol of speed, power, and class. And its no stranger to the big screen, appearing in a variety of popular films, including Le Mans (1972), Downhill Racer (1969), Bad Boys (1995), Office Space (1999), and, unsurprisingly, Fast Five (2011).
The good news is you can now build your own Porsche 911! The downside is that if you try to squeeze into the driver’s seat you’ll likely LEGO spoiler or bumper lodged in the crack of your ass.
You have two models to choose from — Turbo and Targa. Regardless of which you choose, the research and detail that went into each model are impeccable.
What’s more, the gearshift, e-brake, seats, and steering wheel are all working and movable; the rear-mounted, air-cooled flat-six engine is also included. You also get a removable top for convertible cruising (Targa) as well as a wide rear axle, spoiler, and turbocharged engine with intercooler (Turbo).
