We give Lego quite a bit of attention for its consistently impressive automotive toys, but Playmobil, another maker of little plastic people and places, occasionally creates licensed car products. Its latest is a new Porsche 911 Targa, and it deserves a closer look.
The car, which is only available as part of a car dealership playset, features the distinctive blue hue the car was first shown in, and the little targa top can even be stowed. Sadly, there isn’t a tiny replica of the real car’s acrobatic mechanical top, but that means less stuff to break.
The car has functioning headlights and taillights, and the instrument cluster even lights up. Naturally, Playmobil figures also fit inside the car. Those same figures also have the opportunity to browse brochures in stylish chairs thanks to the dealer furnishings the set comes with.
Before the lovely Targa set, the company created one with a 911 Carrera S that could be either a coupe or a convertible, thanks to its fully removable roof. That set also came with some dealer accessories, along with a front bumper and rear wing inspired by Porsche’s high-performance 911 variants.
For those interested, both sets are available, and they each retail for $44.99. However, if you shop around, you might be able to find one for less. Source: autoblog
