My latest creation, and entry for the Porsche contest. E9Porsche by Saberwing007, on Flickr This model is a possible production version of the radical Mission E concept, dubbed the E9. Now, for some backstory. I started on the model roughly the week after it was announced, but I only finished 10 hours before the competition closed. As such, there are several shortcuts taken with the model, which means that the interior is not quite there, I had to omit some features I wanted to add, some pieces aren't solid, etc. But, aside from that, it looks better than I thought it would, and the chassis features worked until I added the body. Now, onto the features that actually do work. Drive, via 4 L motors, two per axle. I also used one receiver for each set of two. 2 speed gearbox, actuated by 1 M motor, and two small linear actuators. The ratios are probably a little bit close together, with gear 1 being 1:3.89, and gear 2 being 1:2.33 4 wheel steering, with two servos. Steering mode switch, with 1 M motor actuating a PF switch. Allows for four wheel steering, normal steering, and crab steering. Independent suspension on all four wheels, control arm with 2 shock absorbers per wheel. No Ackerman correction or fancy geometry here, which made it more solid, and also made the crab steering work better. I also had a couple of features I wanted to add, but due to lack of time I could not implement them. Lights Opening doors/hood/trunk Adjustable aero Panemera style rear spoiler Indicators for gearbox and steering mode. Interior with functional steering wheel. Adjustable suspension, although I actually made the decision early on to nix it, due to how the axles and suspension are set up. Also, I made a few mistakes with the body work, and so the wheels collide with it That, and there are a lot of dodgy/illegal connections, and the back end looks rather bad, like a real Panemera. Well, at least my gearbox works better than the official one, and it has more interesting suspension to boot. Well, I did learn a lot, and proved that I can still build with a deadline. On the other hand, I am probably never building a 1:8 scale car again, given how freaking ginormous this thing ended up being, and yet it still somehow ended up with not a lot of interior space for functional parts. I might take more pictures later, if you guys want it. The bodywork sucks, so I'm probably not going to include it if I make a video, but the chassis might live on, as something else... We'll see.
This is my entry to the Porsche contest: The Porsche Mission E concept car! This model features: openable doors, hood, and trunk, the arc of light in the rear, steering controlled by the steering wheel, full independent suspension, four speed sequential gearbox, and the option to choose forward, neutral or reverse. Sadly I couldn't motorise it because I had no motors able to be used... This model also has no fake engine, because in real life the Mission E has no piston engine, it's all run by electric motors! Many other things have been left out too, like mirrors, just to keep the realism. Anyway, I put a lot of thought into it, and hope that you like it! Questions and comments are welcome!
