Giant LEGO Porsche 911 is Your Inner Child’s Dream Come True
Life-sized version of a small scale toy of the classic Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 is on display in L.A. through Dec. 9.
One of the biggest stories from the ongoing 2018 Los Angeles International Auto Show is the world debut of the eighth generation 911, but there is a different Porsche on display that might actually draw more attention. As you can see in the images here, there is a LEGO version of the classic Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0, but it is the actual size of the real car.
While the new Porsche 911 is sure to draw the attention of sports car fans, this full-sized version of the popular small-scale toy will resonate well with every attendee who grew up playing with LEGOs.
A Giant Speed Champion
The folks at LEGO offer a block set in their Speed Champions line that comes with the parts needed to assemble a very boxy version of the classic Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 and the modern 911 RSR race car.
The car shown in pictures here appears to be an exact replica of the small-scale 911 Turbo 3.0, with giant versions of each plastic block to make the big LEGO 911 look identical to the small LEGO 911. Even the odd tire and wheel look, with the rim extending way out of the rubber, has been mimicked with the large version.
By the way, if you are into LEGOs or Porsche toys, you can buy the two-car Speed Champions set on the company website for $30. LEGO has other Porsche kits as well.
A Childhood Dream
If you were into cars as a young child who played with LEGOs, you likely built cool little custom cars for your Lego dudes to drive and in doing so, you wished that you could have a real, drivable version of that car. We don’t believe that this LEGO Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 can move under its own power, but when we envisioned a life-sized LEGO car as kids, it would have looked a whole lot like the work of art shown here.
This truly is a perfect, large-scale replica of the Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 LEGO kit and every person at the show who has enjoyed playing with LEGOs will have to check this out when attending the 2018 L.A. Auto Show. This is also a great display for parents who are bringing their kids to the show.
