Rims, drive shaft, steering wheel—even the air inlets leave no doubt that this is a real Porsche 911, made of 2,704 individual Lego pieces. An encounter of a special kind.

Road trip through a land of extremes

They start with a hot cup of coffee and then hit the road. Members of Porsche Club Iceland have been gathering at regular intervals for adventurous tours through the diverse terrain of their homeland since 2006. Their many different day trips on the most beautiful paved and unpaved roads take them to glaciers, geysers, wild rivers, and moss-covered landscapes, as well as “beyond where tourists tread,” says Sigfús B. Sverrisson with a smile. He is the vice president of this community of around 80 members, and a true friend of historical Porsche models. We present the horsepowered passion of Europe’s northernmost Porsche Club—including the only Porsche Carrera 4S on the island right below the Arctic Circle.

How the Lego GT3 RS became a film star

Porsche 9:11 Magazine spent two days tinkering on this fun project—and their efforts were rewarded with a successful Lego version of the GT3 RS. The Lava Orange super sports car then traveled to Porsche Leipzig for its modeling session—and a side-by-side comparison with its big hero. On the set, the video experts carefully examined every detail of the original and the model. The result: a visual treat for every true-blue tech fan, lavishly edited from over 50 settings using a direct micro-macro comparison.

How could one forget this classic car? With its removable folding top, sophisticated cockpit design, and 180 horsepower, the iconic Porsche 911 S 2.2 Targa has fascinated sports-car drivers around the world to this day. Without many frills. That’s precisely why the most powerful 911 of its time has a set place in Zuffenhausen’s collection of cars. A close look reveals that the design lines of the Targa and the current Porsche 911 Carrera S are quite similar. But the ultramodern interpretation of the 911 with all manner of high technology under its hood has taken a giant step into the future. Now the two stand side by side.
