The best gifts for Porsche enthusiasts

These gifts should be more fun than an afternoon in a GT3 RS.

The front end of an early Porsche 911

by Ryan Gilmore |

Most petrolheads will have a favourite Porsche. Whether it be one of the seemingly endless 911 variants or another one of Zuffenhausen's finest there are plenty of models to adore.

The affiliate team is no different. Chris William's picks the 996 generation 911 GT3, Adam Binnie selects the Carrera GT while I chose the 964 Carrera RS, preferably in Rubystone Red. None-911 favourites include the Cayman GT4, 968 Clubsport and 944. Point is, there is no shortage of excellent Porsches to choose from, which means there's no shortage of gift ideas. We've chosen our favourite mostly-tasteful gifts that'll go down a storm with Porsche lovers.

LEGO 42096 Technic Porsche 911 RSR Race Car

As sophisticated as a real 911 (nearly)

Now this is a seriously cool Porsche to get your hands on. Forget your GT2 RS this is the real hardcore 911. It's not even rear-engined anymore. This LEGO example may be no-engined (there are moving pistons but they don't power the car), but that doesn't make it any less cool. Made from 1580 pieces it features working suspension, a differential and independent suspension, making it the ultimate Porche LEGO gift.

Revell Porsche 918 Spyder Model kit

The Porsche 918 is an insanely cool hypercar but comes with an equally outrageous price tag, even for a slightly leggy, track-used model. Thankfully this plastic model from Revell allows you to make your own (non-running) example out of plastic. It comes with 129 pieces and features a fully detailed interior, the perfect gift for any Porsche fan aged 10 and over.

A festive 911

A festive option for Porsche fanatics, this advent calendar allows you to make your own classic 911 over the course of 24 days (or one if you have poor self-control). There are a number of classic 911s available, but we like this simple red 901 model. The set includes a display plinth and a small speaker that plays a recording of the iconic flat-six engine.
