LEGO has just unveiled its latest build and it comes as a 2-in-1 set that allows you to build an amazing Porsche 911 Targa or 911 Turbo…
The LEGO Group has finally pulled back the covers and revealed one of the most coveted nameplates in automotive history with a desirable two-in-one LEGO Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Targa set that unites two automotive icons from the 1970s and 80s.
Classic car enthusiasts are often found in ‘man-caves’ assembling various models and this latest dual-build won’t disappoint with it’s new two-in-one LEGO Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Targa set up which can be assembled either as the fixed roof 911 Turbo model or as the open-roofed 911 Targa at one time, allowing fans to choose between classic coupe or convertible style.
The ubiquitous and iconic German neunelfer has evolved through eight generations since first going on sale in 1964 and has a worldwide fan base stretching further than Armstrong’s arms. From the aerodynamic shoulder line to angled headlamps and sculpted bonnet with Porsche badge and rear-mounted flat-six ‘boxer’ engine, the 911 has remained a ‘drivers’ car.
Porsche 911 Turbo & 911 Targa Detail
As with most LEGO variants, the beauty is in the detail and the LEGO Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Targa hide a wealth of exactly that. On both versions of the model, the 2+2 sports seats and dashboard are finished in dark orange and nougat, an eclectic colour scheme based on contemporary upholstery options from the Porsche 911. Further interior details include a handbrake, gearshift and functional steering, while the front seats also tilt forward for access to the rear bench seats.

Several features which are unique to the 911 Turbo and 911 Targa variants of the set ensure they are equally characterful but distinct when built. The LEGO Porsche 911 Turbo sports distinctive Turbo badging, a wide rear axle, turbocharger and intercooler, denoting its blistering performance credentials. Its athletic look is completed with an integrated rear spoiler.
Meanwhile, the LEGO Porsche 911 Targa’s roof is fully removable and can be stowed underneath the hood of the car. The iconic Targa Bar completes the look, along with Targa badging and a brick-built wraparound rear window.
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!
