Porsche 959 v2 (updated)
My second attempt at creating a 6-wide Porsche 959.
About this creation







wikipedia's basic info on the 959:
"The Porsche 959 is a sports car manufactured by German car manufacturer Porsche from 1986 to 1993, first as a Group B rally car and later as a road legal production car designed to satisfy FIA homologation regulations requiring at least 200 units be produced.

The twin-turbocharged 959 was the world's fastest street-legal production car when introduced, achieving a top speed of 197 mph (317 km/h), with some variants even capable of achieving 211 miles per hour (339 km/h). During its production run, the 959 was considered as the most technologically advanced road-going sports car ever built, and forerunner of all forthcoming sports cars. It was one of the first high-performance vehicles with all-wheel drive, providing the basis for Porsche's first all-wheel drive 911 Carrera 4 model. Its performance convinced Porsche executives to make all-wheel drive standard on all turbocharged versions of the 911 starting with the 993. The twin-turbo system utilised on the 959 also made its way to future turbocharged Porsche sports cars. In 2004, Sports Car International named the 959 number one on its list of Top Sports Cars of the 1980s. "

In it's time the only car that was close matching its performance was the Ferrari F40, and became just as legendary. Basically they're the first supercars.








Air intakes.




A driver fits comfortably.


Interior. A normal steering wheel didn't fit because the cockpit is moved 1 stud to the rear.


A happy driver :-)


The famous rear spoiler.

I have to give credit where credit's due, I used some ideas from others.
I was inspired by Blaine R's 959's headlights because my first 959's headlights look too much like the 930/964's.
Petey Bird's 911 is just mindblowing. I didn't directly use any ideas of this car but it oozes inspiration. Worth checking out.

Starscream Soundwave's Charger Daytona uses finger hinge plates to connect pieces upside-down. I first saw this technique there. I used that to connect the rear end to the car.



How the rear part is connected


The rear window actually isn't connected at all. Fits perfectly though. I should have placed it a bit better for the pictures though.


Real 959 for reference

Quoting von Erics 959 v2 looks solid! (I'm glad to be seeing more and more of these lately) At first glance, however, I fear the front and rear overhangs are a bit too long; if there's any way to shorten them up by -1stud, it'll be like icing on the cake. I like your treatment around the fenders though, particularly the use of the new curved slopes w/cutout behind the front wheels. Keep it up!
Updated the design to be closer to the original.

Quoting von Erics I just noticed your digital version was in the Ldraw format :D (lol, I skipped past it at first cuz 99% of the time it's an LDD file) What program do you use?
I use http://stud.io/ I tried a lot of different tools but this is the only tool that's actually usable (to me at least). brick.io's file extention is .io but mocpages doesn't recognize that so I exported it as an LDraw file.

90's is right; I see we're both 90's kids, huh? I've got plenty of those "off-roading" wheels too! I bought that little Octan racecar a couple years ago just to see the City wheels for myself (one of my first post-dark-ages Lego purchases ;D) In a pinch there's a technique, I believe ER0L came up with, where you twist those tires inside-out (it's tough but possible) so they end up looking like fat F1 wheels. Beats having that tread pattern when used on a sports car!

Food for thought! I agree shorter would be better.. I'll tinker with it some more and see what I can come up with. I wish I had the smaller wheels (like you used in your thirmo L8070GT) so I could use the smaller wheel arches. I do have a lot of those old click-on wheels like you used on your XJ220 but they look so... '90s today. :( Thanks a lot for your insightful comment!
