Lego Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 Joins Forza Horizon 4

Forza Horizon 4 has been updated yet again, and the latest addition to its ever-growing fleet of cars available being the 1974 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 from the Lego Speed Champions series.

The latest Forza Horizon game offers a plethora of Lego models to users, and while the Turbo 3.0 isn’t the most expensive Lego model available, it is bound to thrill gamers who appreciate how important the car is in the history of the 911.

Porsche built the car, also marketed as the 930, to gain homologation for the 1976 racing season. Powering original versions of the car is a 3.0-liter turbocharged flat-six delivering 256 HP at 5,500 rpm and 243 lb-ft (329 Nm) of torque at 4,000 rpm. Early models could reach 60 mph (96 km/h) in a blistering 5.2 seconds as well as a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).

Production of the 3.0-liter model ran from 1975 to 1977 and just 2,819 units were built and sold worldwide. Complementing the vehicle’s powerful engine were a number of other distinctive parts, including a tweaked suspension and larger brakes as well as the iconic ‘whale tail.’

Lego unveiled its Speed Champions model of the Porsche 930 back in June. The model is priced at $14.99 in the U.S., consists of 180 individual pieces (including a removable windshield) and even comes with a minifigure.

Other models currently available as part of the Lego expansion pack in Forza Horizon 4 include the McLaren Senna, Ferrari F40 Competizione, and 1967 Mini Cooper S Rally.
