What’s the fun of puzzles with flat images of Porsche, if are any at all, when it does not bring out the essence of a ride like, say, a Porsche 911 R? But this puzzle here of a Porsche 911 R does. And it isn’t flat. It is a 3D puzzle of the superlative Porsche 911 R. Created by German jigsaw puzzler maker, Ravensburger, in collaboration with the German performance automobile maker, Porsche, the Ravensburger Porsche 911R 3D Puzzle boasts 108 sturdy plastic puzzle pieces, clicking together using Ravensburger’s Easyclick technology.
When built, this 1:18 model measures pretty sizeable 311 by 221 by 69 mm (around 12.2 x 8.7 x 2.7 inches). All Ravensburger 3D puzzles are manufactured using a patented process that involves injection molding the pieces, laser-making the inner side with ID numbers and then printing the design on the outer side. As you can see, it is a complex process, more so for a model with so many curves. Judging from the product images, the result is a testimony of the meticulous design process. The Ravensburger Porsche 911 R 3D Puzzle is definitely a must-have for any Porsche fan.
