Another Porsche LEGO set - building the 911 RSR

😎Life,🤖Lego

After my success with Porsche GT3 RS I decided to add another, a little smaller and less complicated, yet still cool Porsche lego set - the Porsche 911 RSR which I got myself for Christmas 2020 - to basically cheer myself up in the middle of the Covid pandemic. Here’s how the build process went down:

Step 1 - suspension and wheels 🛞

We start at the very bottom of the car:

Until we build the Porsche sport suspension for all four wheels:

Side note: I like to put the lego pieces in the old boxes of my iPads or iPhones. This way I can easily find the pieces I need for each stage of build.

Step 2 - famous Porsche 6-cylinder boxer engine

Now it’s time to put the engine in the car. It’s 2017 Porsche 911 RSR, 991 generation which:

It was still a naturally aspirated engine based on the engine generation of the 911 GT3 R and 911 GT3 Cup with direct injection. Depending on the size of the restrictor, the 4.0-liter boxer six-cylinder developed around 375 kW (510 hp)
