Introduction: Porsche Carrera Concept

Picture of Porsche Carrera Concept

Hello and thanks for taking time to look at my latest build, my Porsche Carrera Concept.

Basically what I got my inspiration from is Jack-O-Jack's 1973 Porsche Carrera RS, but I put my own twist on it. This is the most detail I have ever put into a knex car and I think it shows. It has a doors that open, a steering wheel that actually functions, and a powerful 10 rubberband engine that propels it at fast speeds. I think the motor is a new feature that is not normally in car of this design.The only thing I think can improve is the postion of the steering column that is a little to close to the wall, but other than that it is very, very awesome all around. Most importantly, it helps me to think about more round aerodynamic knex car design.

I do plan on posting this eventually, just wanting some imput on what you think about it.

Thanks for looking!  JonnyBGood

That looks so nice on of the best knex cars i have seen please post some more cars here I like how it does not use an outrageous amount of parts like my car. also do still have it i would like to make it if you can post instructions.

I unfortunatly don't have it anymore. However I quite literally just threw more pieces onto the base I borrowed from the original maker. Shouldn't be too hard to replicate with your own twist.

That's to bad are you planning on posting some more cars it would be cool if you made a truck or something hope to see more cool stuff like this in the future.

JonnyBGood (author)sonic broom2015-02-03

Am I planning more cars for the future? Not sure yet, I'm kind of in the planning process right now and I'm waiting for an idea to jump at me. I have 2 cars planned, (drawn) if I do end up doing any of them they will be to showcase a new system I've wired up. (hint, hint).
Also I may just do something similar to this one, find a car with a good design and throw pieces at it until it looks awesome.

I dont have many pieces left . knex dude 2000 has used a lot of them.

JonnyBGood (author)knex fr3ak2013-02-27

Well I'm not sure how many pieces you have, but maybe my Offroad Truck?

JonnyBGood (author)JonnyBGood2013-02-27

or on second thought maybe Jack O Jack's Porche Carrera, only because my Porche is a direct copy of his. I just added a ton more pieces and features than he did.

nice car :D

JonnyBGood (author)megustatrains2013-09-25

Why thanks!
I still have it, just because it looks great on a shelf.

On a unrelated note, I finished taking pictures of Zip2 (almost 300) I will make the ible tomorrow granted no curveballs occur.

I like knex but i dont know what to build.

JonnyBGood (author)knex fr3ak2013-02-27

Well ummmm... that's pretty vague... If you have a motor I would build I_am_Canadian's Circular Ball Machine. It has very clear instructions and is awesome to watch... almost hypnotic. It's also very popular being that it is the face of the title page of the knex e-book.

knex fr3ak (author)2013-02-27

Cool i like bmw's. what shal i build that is popular on this site ,

JonnyBGood (author)knex fr3ak2013-02-27

Whatever your intrest is in. Mine was Knex and Lego guns, but I kinda just enjoy knex gadgets in general.

knex fr3ak (author)2013-02-25

Hi i am new on this site and dont know what to do . you seem like a clever guy, can you tell me what is popular and will get a good rating or whatever. By the way , i like your car . i bet many people ask you if you can post instructions, I would like some if you have any.

JonnyBGood (author)knex fr3ak2013-02-26

Yep they're coming up give me around week. (I got something else I'm working on)

knex dude 2000 (author)2013-02-22

COOL but i gave you the idea but anyway it is a good car . please can you post easy instructions for my brother. he wants it now,

hi knex dude 2000

Well, I may, I got a list going of stuff for this site so we'll see.

this is a well articulated car, although this looks like a porsche 944 to me. still a great looking car though, great job.

Well after I was done modifing the Porche Carrera 1973 I realized I didn't really look like it anymore, so I called it a concept. I loved working on it though and I may try another.

ook great. and i think you should build another one too. im thinking about building a 2013 porsche 911 turbo. what do you think?

Sounds and looks good, I think you should make it. By the way how was the exotic sports coupe coming along?

good, i will make it then. but the exotic sport coupe is cancelled for now because i wanted to build after a real model car like a porsche for example. but its still in future planning. i wanna draw the coupe first so i can know how i want to build it too..

I don't do the drawing part because I always draw it better than I can build it....but if you need any ideas I got many more awesome drawings if you need them.

lol me too, but im gonna draw it anyway because i like to draw. and ook great, ill let you know if i want to build one of your drawings.

Unless you are talking about the cars made by MINI, I have no idea what you are talking about.

beanieostrich (author)2013-02-17

This looks like a fairly well-designed car, and it is one of the better ones I've seen in a long time.

JonnyBGood (author)beanieostrich2013-02-18

Thanks! Glad you liked it.
