While the holiday may be over there’s no reason not to gift your loved little ones with this new Playmobil Porsche 911 Targa 4S kit – a great way to experience from an early age Germany’s greatest sports car.
Playmobil’s 911 Targa comes in a dark blue hue not very far away from a real shade found on the real deal. And we’ve already fallen in love with this set because it features the open-roof version of the iconic coupe. The headlights, taillights, and dashboard even light up and respecting the scale dimensions of the car there’s room for two adult figures in front and two child figures in the rear. What can’t be replicated in pint size is the origami-style folding of the targa roof seen on the real car, as the center panel will simply be lifted off. The $44.99 play set has no interest in engineering the complicated mechanism – especially when considering kids do abuse their toy cars quite often.
Interestingly enough, Playmobil might be setting up the road for a customer in the making because the set also replicates the Porsche showroom experience. The play set packs a dollhouse-sized dealer, includes a sales person, desks, computer, brochures, and art. The figure of the buyer can even learn about the Targa 4S with a little spec sheet on a stand. By the way, they need to start saving because the real deal is north of 100k – which is rather worth it since you get a 3.0-liter biturbo flat six with 414 horsepower (309 kilowatts) and 368 pound-feet of torque (500 Newton-meters).
