1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Speed Champions Style 6 to 7 Studs Wide
This is my Speed Champions style 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo. I had a poster of a black 930 on my wall as a kid when I was growing up in the 1980's.
About this creation


Here you can see the flare I get from using 6 studs wide in the front and 7 studs wide from the rear wheels back.



I wanted to try a new design for my Speed Champion style Porsches, so I decided to use technic beams to form the sides of the car. I rotated 2 on each side on the technic pin connection to flair the bodywork out in front of the rear fender.



The wheelbase is the shortest of any of my Porsche Speed Champions builds. The classic 911's were nowhere near as large as their modern offspring.



Overall, I only carried over the windscreen and roof design from my previous Porsche builds.



I wanted this classic Porsche to have a different look compared to my modern 911's, kind of like how the real cars have evolved over time. So all the details are different from my more modern 911 cars.



At first I tried smaller diameter wheels with larger tire sidewalls, but decided that they looked too much like truck wheels. I'm back to larger wheels with low profile tires.









The only decal I used was the Porsche crest from the LEGO Speed Champions Porsche set.















The "tea tray" rear wing with the integrated intercooler is built at 5 studs wide. This type of wing has a thicker look than the modern GT3 RS wing, so its 1-2 plates/tiles thick.



I included the classic red area between the tail lights where the real car proudly wears the Porsche name.



The 7 stud wide rear of the car is squatted down and powerful looking.





Two 1970's icons, my 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo with my 1973 Porsche Carerra RSR.

Great Porsche, as others have said the transition to 7-wide at the rear is very clever and well implemented. the whole car is just menacingly beautiful. well done.

This looks insanely good. The wheels and the short wheelbase give it a cute look.
