Lego Porsche 911 RC Car - Click above to watch video after the jump

We've grown a little callous when it comes to Lego creations. We blame the internet. After all, with the world 's Lego builders itching to show off their latest Technic and basic block constructions, the bar is set continuously higher.

These days, our eyebrows don't arch at anything less than Lego perfection, which is why we're head over heels for the 911 Turbo Cabriolet PDK in the video after the jump. It's pure mechanical obsession in the best way possible. Everything works, from the retractable hard top to hood release. The car even boasts the same steering rack ratio as the real deal.

All told, there are over 3,500 parts wrapped up in the vehicle, including eight electric motors, three remote controls and around 21 feet of wire. Even more impressive is the fact that this is no static model. The transmission actually functions and puts power through an all-wheel drive system. Consider our minds effectively blown. This guy actually built a fully-functioning RC car from scratch out of Lego components. Hit the jump to see it for yourself.

      Let me get this straight... he built a LEGO 7 Speed, Dual-Clutch, Manually operated, transmission!?. BUILT OUT OF LEGOS... Seriously, WHAT THE HELL?! Do you know how much time that takes and how hard it is to do?! He should be in Guinness' World Record Books! Just make sure you check out his website for other amazing builds if you are not impressed yet.

          Thanks! Somehow the comment posted twice. I gave you a thumbs up as sort of a thank you.

      I think I nearly passed out when I saw the PDK in action. Amazing!

      Hmm, a 7 speed twin clutch manual (note that he controls the clutch 'pedal')... Are You Listening Porsche??? This guy deserves the real thing for his efforts, or at least a lifetime supply of Lego. Slap in a bigger electric motor to spin the flat six, and let it rip! Im eagerly awaiting the other 20 versions of the Lego 911; this is a Carrera 4 Cabrio, what about a GT2RS (with CF lego pieces, rwd and an electro turbo)?

        Actually, this is a 911 Turbo, not a Carrera 4. Carrera 4s don't come with the Turbo spoiler.

      Pretty dang impressive! Porsche needs to hook this guy up with a real 911 if he doesn't already have one, certainly seems to deserve one more than a lot of Porsche drivers I see.

      Holy Lord talk about good timing -- I just retrieved my old Legos from my dad's attic (haven't been touched in like a decade) with the intention of building a roughly 1:18 scale car...... but man, this guy's creation just blew all my ideas out of the water. Props to you, good sir! PS. I don't care how old you are -- Legos f***ing rule!

      It's quite clear from the underside angle of the steering that the Ackermann Angle is all wrong.... ;)
