Porsche Made This Full-Size 911 Turbo Out Of Lego Bricks

Men don’t outgrow their toys, they say. The toys just get bigger as their owners do. Like this full-size Porsche made out of Lego bricks, for example.

On display at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, the installation replicates a 911 Turbo 3.0. That was the first turbocharged road car Porsche made back in the 1970s, known internally (and among enthusiasts) as the 930.

A game-changer for the marque from Zuffenhausen, the original Turbo packed 256 horsepower (260 ps/191 kW). And all of it was channeled to the rear wheels. That’s less than the base Carrera makes today (its turbocharged flat six producing 345 hp/350 ps/257 kW). Heck, even the base Macan makes almost that much (at 249 hp/252 ps/185 kW). But it was a whole lot more than any version of the 911 had made up to that point. And it paved the way to even more potent versions to follow.

The German automaker produced an estimated 2,819 of the first 911 Turbo between between 1975 and 1977. Then an upgraded 3.3-liter model replaced it. This one, as you can see, was built using a more, shall we say… “modular” method.

Rather eye-catching in lime green, the Lego 930 appears to have been built in full scale, standing as big and tall as the vehicle it replicates. We’d imagine the larger-than-usual bricks had to be fabricated specially. But we’re glad they did, because the end result looks like just the right blend of accurate and zany that only the Germans could manage. Just the thing, in short, to captivate the attention of Porsche fans young and old.
