LEGO® Icons Porsche 911

There’s an old expression that perfectly sums up the Porsche 911: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” This iconic German sports car debuted in 1963 and has been in continuous production ever since, with only minor adjustments and modernizations along the way. After all, it is one of the most successful competition cars ever and one of the most iconic sports cars in history, so why change it?

The LEGO® Icons Porsche 911 set features authentic details like the front and rear bumpers, angled headlights, printed logo and license plates. And the interior is just as impressive with working steering, gearstick, emergency brake, tilting seats and a dark-orange-and-nougat color scheme. You’ll have the choice of building the Turbo model with a turbo-charged engine or the Targa with a removable roof stored under the hood.
