Best Porsche Gift Ideas
The following Porsche gift list is by no means exhaustive, but we do try to find the most popular, interesting, and unique Porsche-related gifts available across a wide range of budgets. We’ll do our best to keep this list updated regularly and anytime we see or buy a Porsche-related product we love, we’ll be sure to share it.
Take a look through our list of the best Porsche gift ideas and don’t be at all embarrassed if you buy yourself something, we weren’t!
1. Steve McQueen In Le Mans: Art Graphic Novel
Masterfully crafted by Sandro Garbo and the team at Garbo Studio, Steve McQueen in Le Mans fuses a blistering graphic novel with a bold and vivid tribute to McQueen himself, a man who gave new hope and meaning to car enthusiasts around the world. Inspired by 1971͛s iconic Le Mans͛ movie, which overcame its initial box office struggle to find true cult status, Garbo’s creation pays homage to the movie, its race, the cars that fired on all cylinders and the man who made it all possible.
2. Porsche Flat-Six Boxer Engine Model Kit
Want to build your own superbly detailed Porsche 911 engine? This 1:4 scale model kits includes a complete, motorized rotating assembly with illuminated ignition complete with exhaust sounds and a beautifully-illustrated companion book made in cooperation with the Porsche Museum in Germany (providing instructions on assembly and history on the production and racing variants of the famous “Mezger” engine with historical photos, drawings, and posters from the Porsche archives).
3. LEGO Technic Porsche 911 RSR
If you know someone who loves Porsches and LEGOs, you’re in luck. There are a few Porsche LEGO sets available, but this is one by far our favorite. It’s a very detailed LEGO Technic creation, featuring 1,580 pieces and once built, it measures over 5″ high, 19″ long, and 7″ wide. If you’re looking for something more affordable, check out our list of the best LEGO Porsche sets.
4. BEZGAR Porsche Remote Control Car
Need a gift idea for a younger Porsche enthusiast in your life? If they’re not old enough to drive a Porsche, this might be the next best thing. And even if they are old enough, you might be surprised how much joy a remote control car can bring to an adult. This is an officially licensed Porsche 911 GT3 RS remote control car, 1:24 scale. While the remote functions are a bit basic compared to more expensive R/C cars, its price makes it a great gift idea.
5. Forza 7 Motorsport
Let’s face it, the closest most of us will ever come to driving the new Porsche GT2 RS is while day dreaming away at our next Cars & Coffee event or digitally in games like Forza Motorsport 7. That’s why you should get yourself a copy (and an Xbox console if needed).
6. A Smartphone Mount
A few of our Porsches are newer and included navigation. However, the modules are getting old and with all the construction here in the North East I’m relying more and more on my smartphone to do the heavy lifting vs. the built in nav. The same holds true for our air-cooled cars that don’t have navigation. The issue we always run into is where to best put our phone so as not to block any of our instruments and not distract us while driving. For that reason, I’m not a huge fan of the mounts that clip into the CD player. I also don’t like clipping anything to my vents or using a suction cup on my dash (I’ve found they leave marks and if you’re not paying attention and accidentally whack one too hard you could even break your vent). That’s why I like mounts that have the option to mount to the glass of your windshield. It not only gives you the best positioning options, but any marks left behind can easily be wiped clean. After lots of trial and error, the mount that works best for us is the iOttie Easy One Touch.
7. Porsche 70 Years: There Is No Substitute
Having just reviewed Randy Leffingwell’s most recent Porsche book, we can confidently say this belongs in your library. Either as a gift for yourself or for a loved one, at under $40.00 you can’t go wrong. With 256 pages of book, complete with 200 full color photographs and 50 additional black and white images, at nearly 5 lbs this book weighs almost as much as the coffee table you’ll put it on. there is a whole lot of bang for the buck in this one.

9. K40 All-Band Radar and Laser Detector with GPS Technology
For a while now we’ve been thinking of getting a Radar and Laser detector installed in our 993. However, we haven’t wanted to make the commitment to a full/permanent install as we’ve done our best to keep our Porsche as it came from the factory with nothing else added. As a compromise, we’ve been testing a portable version courtesy of K40. Specifically, it’s the RLS2 model that features both Radar and Laser detectors along with a very handy GPS function. The GPS function is great if you live in an area with regular speed traps or cameras. You simply mark their location and the detector remembers them and warns you will in advance. So far, this detector has saved us from two different tickets which means it’s paid for itself and then some.
