Porsche 911 Targa or Turbo? Latest Lego Kit Lets You Choose

Boosted brick build time

  • Kit comes with directions for either version

  • Classic styling for classic toy


Lego is letting you build a kit with two Porsches in one! Their latest offers builders the choice of either a classic Porsche 911 Turbo or an open-top Targa, both in the same kit that lets you swap out some bricks whenever you change your mind.

The brickmaker and world’s largest tire company recognizes that picking the Porsche 911 you want is tough. “As we were designing the car, the hardest decision to make was whether we would make the Turbo or Targa variant of the car,” said Design Master Mike Psiaki. “It was such a tough call that we engineered the ability to build the LEGO Porsche 911 Turbo and Targa from a single set.”

Both come with a load of details including 2+2 seating and a dashboard finished in a dark orange and nougat combination based on what was offered by the automaker at the time. There’s a handbrake, gearshift, and the steering works. You can even tilt forward the front seats for rear access.

The Turbo gets a wider rear axle, just like the real deal, and there is a brick turbocharger and intercooler along with Turbo badging and that iconic whale tail spoiler. The Lego Targa gets a fully removable roof that can be stored under the car’s hood. It offers a recreation of the classic Targa bar hoop as well as an all-brick wraparound rear windshield. And since this is Lego, we’re going to assume you can mix and match to make yourself the Targa Turbo that Porsche never offered.

Early buyers can snag a limited-edition Lego Porsche owners pack that comes with a certificate of ownership, a Lego Porsche card wallet, and a set of four prints based on then-current Porsche ads.
