Build the 911 Targo or the Turbo Coupe - the choice is yours!

Lego has been on a roll with all the car kits that it has been releasing these days, and the toy brick marker has shown little interest in slowing down anytime soon. The newest addition to its growing car kit lineup has arrived, and it’s a two-in-one bundle that’ll allow you to recreate a coupe and a targa version of the 1980s Porsche 911 using the same 1,458 pieces that the kit comes in.

The 1,458-piece kit allows you to recreate two classic Porsche 911 Turbos from the 1970s and 1980s without having to buy two separate kits to do it.

Unfortunately, you can only build one version of the 911 Turbo at a time, but still, if you get tired of looking at the Porsche 911 Turbo, you can switch it to the Porsche 911 Targa and vice versa.

In typical Lego fashion, the kit is loaded with true-to-life details attributed to the 911 Turbo of yesteryear, right down to the dark orange and nougat interior, the 2+2 seating layout, and of course, the flat-six engine sitting at the back of the car. If you’re a Sherlock for details, the kit also includes the 911 Turbo’s handbrake, shifter, a working steering wheel, and front seats that could be tilted to make room for the Lego mini-figures who would want to sit in the back.

Each version also comes with specific pieces to complete their respective builds. The Turbo, for example, comes with a wider rear axle, a whale tail spoiler, turbocharger, intercooler, and special badging to complete its look. The Targa, on the other hand, comes with a wraparound rear window, targa bar, removable roof sections, and Targa-specific badging.

The set costs $149.99 in the U.S. and€129.99 in Europe.

The set’s availability will depend on what your status is with Lego. If you happen to be a VIP, you can get first dibs on the set beginning on February 15. Early availability isn’t the only treat for VIPs. Those ordering through Lego’s VIP loyalty program — it’s free to sign up, by the way — will also receive a limited-edition Lego Porche owners pack on top of the actual build car. The pack includes four Porsche ads from the 911’s history that have been recreated as Lego prints. A certificate of ownership is also included in the pack, as is a card wallet that has plenty of use in the real world.

In the event that you’re not a part of Lego’s VIP program, you can still score the 2-in-1 Porsche 911 set in your local toy stores or at Lego’s website beginning on March 1.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
