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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
