As much a piece of history as it is a mechanical marvel, this vehicle is a marvel even by today’s standards. This 1956 Porsche 550 RS Spyder will be auctioned off during RM Sotheby’s Paris sale in February as part of the week of Salon Retromobile festivities.

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
