The World Sportscar Championship awaits the Porsche 956

I’ve been a Porsche fanboy all my life. And since I love LEGO, when I say Manuel Cara‘s Porsche 956 gave me goosebumps, you’ll understand why. With its custom decals and clever building techniques, this perfect scale replica looks amazing. The 956 was originally designed by Norbert Singer and built by Porsche in 1982 for the FIA World Sportscar Championship. This car holds the all-time record for the fastest vehicle ever to lap the famed Nürburgring, completing the 20 km circuit in 6:11.13 during qualifying.

I love the technique Manuel has used to create the exhaust port in front of the rear tires and although I am not quite sure exactly how they are attached, using the levers as wing mirrors is a stroke of brilliance.
