The Porsche 917 might not be in the everyman’s automotive vernacular, but it’s a legend among the motorsport cognoscenti. But you can’t exactly go out and buy an original, considering only 60 of them were ever made. The UK’s Icon Engineering, however, wants to make it possible. Co-Founder Dave Eaton fell in love with the 917 as a child and ended up buying a body shell in 2005 and ended up meticulously designing parts in CAD to make the car a reality. The engine might not be the original race car’s flat-twelve cylinder monster, but it does get a high-revving flat-six, new and improved crash structure, and high strength steel tubing instead of aluminum. The look is true to the original race car with its sleek wedge body and low slung cabin. Icon will build 60 of them for some passionate Porsche racing buffs with big wallets.

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?
