Porsche 914
Here's my Porsche 914! It's my biggest and favourite creation so far!
About this creation

Summary




History


Strong purist will say that there is only one Porsche, the 911, and that this isn’t a Porsche. That’s half the truth. It has been developed with VW, that’s true, and has been sold with a VW-badge as well (it was a created brand called ‘VW-Porsche’), it also has been created to replace the VW Karmann-Ghia. But the one I’m presenting here is the 914-6, so with the 911s 6-cylinder boxer and this isn’t a VW, for sure!

Porsche 914



First Attempt


My first attempt was this one. Still, it already had an engine and gearbox, but none of those were working …

Updates


This creation is a big one, so there are some updates. The pics you see and the descriptions below are all refered to the last update.

  • 01/03/2016: New major update of the car. It has new wheels (Fuchs alloys),
    new rear lights (totally redesigned ones), redesigned wheel arches (now they fit the wheels properly), a new colour (tangerine) and new renders.




Design


I want to say first that this is a Porsche 914 like I want to have one. That’s why it is a little bit customized.
The main differences with a real one are the massive semi-slick tires, a sport-suspension and a sporty exhaust. The Fuchs Wheels were a pain to develop (and took ages to render) but fits the car well.
I’ve also used real blueprints (found on the internet) and converted all the dimensions into studs thanks to this Excel Sheet
It has:

  • Pop-Up Lights!

  • Opening Doors, Bonnet, Engine Bonnet and Hood

  • A Glovebox and Sun Visors!

  • Adjustable Seats, Mirrors and Sun Visors

  • Working Door-locking

  • Original Fuchs Wheels

Engineering


It is a major point of this car. I wanted it as real and usable as possible. So it has:

  • A working flat 6 boxer engine from a Porsche 911

  • A working 5+R Gearbox

  • Independant Front and Rear Suspensions

  • A working Steering and Steering Wheel



The most difficult part to develop on this car was the gearbox. It is a fully functional 5+R gearbox, connected to the wheel and the engine. Such as the gearbox, the steering and especially the suspension was a horror to build on LDD.

Caracteristics



  • Width: 24 studs = 19.5 cm (7.7 in)

  • Length: 64 studs = 50 cm (19.7 in)

  • Height: 12 studs = 9.5 cm (3.7 in)

  • Wheelbase: 35 studs = 27.7 cm (10.6 in)

  • Nb of Bricks: 1973

Quoting Mister Hashtag Just thinking about building all them gears in LDD makes me want to stick forks in my eyes :P
you develop once a gearbox and then use it in every other creation. I'm building a 4 cylinder for my upcoming delta; and i'll use it in various other mocs later on. Same with the gearbox, 4wheel system diff, clutch, etc ...

Quoting Vinny Turbo Salut Yann, très très beau boulot ! Très détaillé. Ta meilleure création jusqu'à présent. L'épouse de mon parrain a eu une de ces "VolksPorshe" Lui roulait en Mercedes 350SL mais on est malheureusement pas tous friqués dans la famille... Si je peux te donner un conseil pour tes prochaines créations, Travaille en t'aidant de plans pour avoir de bonnes proportions. Tu peux en trouver sur le Net en tapant Blueprints et imprimer ce qui t'intéresse puis mettre à l'échelle avec un photocopieur. Je ne le fais pas beaucoup pour mes 5-wide mais là je travaille sur un projet à l'échelle 1/17ième et ça m'aide pas mal.
Salut! Je ne savais pas que tu étais francais ;-) Je te remercie pour ta critique et tes propositions. Paradoxalement, il s'agit du premier modèle que j'ai construis à l'aide des plans de la voiture réelle, en convertissant les longueurs en 'studs'. Merci quand même! En attendant ton modèle en 1/17eme, je te dit à bientôt!
