After months of accumulating parts and trying to design an acceptable 911, I found my solution. I have wanted 911's in a variety of colors but, there is only one color that this part comes in that can be used. Red (apparently white, but @ $3.50?). So that left me with a bit of a problem after building my first Porsche 911 (scroll down a little). I had a bit of trouble designing a proper face for the car. I put that build on hiatus because of a few other ideas that hit me. Then last night it hit me, a simple solution to get as close to a 911 in 4 wide. So here is my new collection of 4W Porsche 911s. Hope you like!  Posted Image

I do like the red one better, the rounded headlights being more authentic, but these multicoloured ones are still cool. That's a nice little collection you have.

I think I'd like to see one in all black, or maybe black with a red bottom plate.

Or go all out street racer and light up the underside, even just with trans pieces down the sidesteps.

I realy love them. The colours are well chosen. I love the old 4-wide vehicles. If you don't mind, ik like to introduce them into my own town. :thumbup:  :cry_happy:  :wub:

I like the yellow 911, especially the back of it. Nice efforts! Would love to see them in muted colors though.

That was actually what I based my first Porsche off. [quote][size="2"] My favorite of the bunch, is based off of 'Selander's MOC, "[url="http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=58118&st=0&p=1035168&fromsearch=1&#entry1035168"]Red Open Sport Car[/url]". I like his so much I built one but, realized I couldn't fit in a minifig and traditional steering wheel. So I made a larger, wider, roadster.[[/size]quote]




It is quite difficult to get that rear slope right in 4W

Thanks for the colour update LGG.

trans green isn't the colour I was thinking of (more trans blue) but it works great. I love it.

Very nice shape, I like it a lot. My favorite is the last addition - the black one with the blue trans plates.

And if someone likes some tuning or likes to make a 911 turbo just add this BBS Wheels 11 x 6 mm with 8 Y spokes:

I looked for those wheels a little while back but, no one had them in bulk. Thats why I ended up with the white/gold wheels. I do like those very much and hope to get some (many) soon  Posted Image

Instead of creating a new thread for more 911's, I decided to add them here. In regards to these, after waiting almost a month for a few BL orders from overseas to arrive (d**n customs), I was finally able to finish my two 911's. I think pretty much bought up all those sloped black mudguards in the U.S. For this, I am sorry   Posted Image

Anyway, these are inspired by the Gumball 3000... Well I guess any rally but, I think of the Gumball 3K for some reason. Maybe the extra color pallet or something.

So here they are, hope you enjoy   Posted Image

Nothing much different, just colorful!

It's difficult to get the design on such a small design, and I think you did pretty well! :sweet:

Those Porsches are really nice. You used some great color combos and the rims from the "Cars"-Sets fit great.

And a really nice detail on the exhaust.  :wink:

I am ready. We could go racing...  :laugh:

Keep up the great work,

Thanks 'Ceroknight' and 'Farnheim'. I can't take all the credit as 'Sealander' pioneered the design with his smaller "Open Red Sports Car". I liked it so much I designed and built my own version of the iconic car. I like that little red car you made  'Farnheim'. I hope you put it in a topic with more pics. And I'll take you on that race offer! 1/4 mile for Pinks?   Posted Image

A little on the small side, but still, great MOCs! I like the Cars pieces come to use and there are some great building techniques in this. Good job!

I like your use of the pieces from the outback racer. That was one of my favorite sets when I was younger and its always nice to see those stickers still applied to the original pieces.

And may I join that race? I think my Bolt Python is up to the challenge. :wink: In fact, a Eurobricks Grand Prix could be a cool contest.
