It’s getting harder and harder to be impressed with Lego kits and special one-off creations. It seems there’s a never ending supply of them out there. Of the car-based variety, we’ve there’s been everything from life-size Volvo XC90s to functional Lego Unimogs. But this remote-control Porsche 911 Cabriolet is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.
For starters, this remote control Porsche 911 isn’t built from a kit—it’s a completely original Lego built by a twenty-something Spaniard named Fernando. It took Fernando 18 months to piece together the 3500 parts in this model. Now you may be thinking, “Oh wow, I could’ve built that in a week.” Maybe you could have, but could you have done it with all-wheel drive? What about with a cut-away F-6? Could you have done it with a working seven-speed dual-clutch transmission based off of Porsche PDK? I think not.
The engineering that went into this Lego 911 is simply astounding. PDK, all-wheel drive, three (working) differentials, a retractable spoiler and a working retractable hardtop—it’s truly a one-of-a-kind creation. You can check out Fernando’s YouTube video of his creation below. Also be sure to check out his Web site where he explains how he built his Lego 911. He also has some photos of some of his other creations, including a Dodge Viper RT/10.
