Designing full-sized models out of the regular sized LEGO bricks is not new, but Porsche has gone a bit wild and designed a super-sized LEGO set to recreate its 911 Turbo 3.0 model. Found at Porsche Museum in Stuttgart in Germany, the jumbo 911 is a scaled-up replica of the LEGO version one could purchase.
That implied taking all the individual LEGO pieces for the bodywork, hood, bumpers, and lights, and making far bigger versions of them. These have been congregated into something that is the same size as a production Porsche. The bright green finish is sure to make the buyers swear by a German sports car that they cannot miss.
There is sadly not much in the way of detail around the creation of the car. The regular-sized model is a part of the LEGO Speed Champions set that includes a Porsche 911 RSR along with the Turbo 3.0. They are way less complex than the LEGO Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS set that came in with a massive 2,704 pieces. The Speed Champions models are entirely lot smaller and use way fewer pieces. They, however, do get some appealing accessories, including the race position boards and more.
The full-sized LEGO Big Brick 911 Turbo 3.0 of Porsche does not look like it is designed to be opened up in the same way that probably might be a good thing, as some winch rig may be needed to get the top off in one piece. Generally, with the full-size LEGO models, the makers end up creating a metal frame that acts as structural support, around which the blocks are congregated.
According to Porsche, the big 911 Turbo 3.0 would be there at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart until 19th April, after which it would move to the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart from 21st April to 29th April.
