Earlier this year LEGO® unveiled a new 1,458-piece kit that adds unprecedented levels of detail to the iconic classic “G-nose” Porsche 911. This full equipped model includes a working steering, a detailed interior, a flat-six engine and the Fuchs wheels!
As soon as we caught wind of the release we knew when two icon’s meet, it’s bound to grab peoples’ attention. Paralleling the classic beauty of the Porsche 911 with the nostalgic feeling of playing with LEGO® sets as a child, our General Manager Paul Renaud marked his calendar to set aside 4-5 hours of building time! He has always been inspired by the LEGO® x Porsche collaboration and has had the 911 model in his mind since seeing the life size version located at the Porsche design HQ in Ludwigsburg Germany! He started out organizing all his pieces and got started, taking a moment to appreciate all the incredible detailing along the way!
“Like the LEGO® Group, Porsche is in the dream making business. And now, with the LEGO® Porsche 911 model kit, you can make your dream of owning a Porsche 911 come true and even build it from scratch. It’s childhood reinvented!” Said Porsche Canada when introducing the new set to local dealers.
As soon as we heard the above and set out eyes on the final product, we couldn’t help but show off the iconic beauty of the Porsche 911 LEGO® build and brought our imaginations to the real-world capturing images of it around our city! “It was an absolute showstopper. It caught people’s attention and many questions were asked! It was like it brought out that childhood curiosity in everyone.” Says Alexander Coombs Porsche Pro "It opened up a conversation with almost everyone who walked by".
