My second attempt using bricks from set 5867 only. This time it is a Porsche.
About this creation
After building a bobcat from this set I started to think what should come next. When I took the two black, round pieces into my hand, I immediatly thought they look like headlights of a Porsche from the 1970's.
I was kind of surprised, that no Porsche has been made out of this set so far (or at least I could not find them on this page).



The front part of the car was the hardest thing - it took several attempts to find the best use of the different pieces to create the iconic headlights and a more-or-less studless front.

The back was much easier after I decided which bricks should be used for the front.



With my limited experience it's hard to capture details at this size, but I did my best to replicate the roll over structure, index and brake lamps.





The license plate number is missing, although it's place is ready. Maybe this could be your car too, if you buy it fast.



The interior part of the doors are covered with light leather, and of course they can be opened. The cockpit is fairly simple as it was in the 70's.





The bottom is not detailed at all, as I have almost used up all the bricks for the other parts of the car.



I would love to see other solutions from you as I am not completely statisfied with the result - but anyway it was a great pleasure to discover all the SNOT possibilities of the different bricks.

Hope you enjoy it too!

Hi Andras. Congratulations on the news of your second child on the way :). I have two boys and there was certainly no time for Lego in the early days but as you know things get a little easier when they get a bit older. I meant what I said I will miss our chats and your mocs. Hopefully you will find the time for mocpages every now and then. Happy New Year Daddio :)

Thanks! It was a pain to build it as I couldn't get it as close to my reference photos as I wanted. So one day I will try it again, just out of memory - maybe I will enjoy the result even better. :)

Hi Andras. Hope you are well and had a great Christmas. Did I read that you might be entering a 'dark age' ? I really really hope not - I would miss your mocs :). I absolutely love this moc one of the best I have seen from this amazing set

Quoting C. K. Yee Nice alternative model for Porsche 911, Especially the front part with the 2 round headlight, a brilliant idea. I might intend to buy this 5867 set soon. I always love to see how creative we all can create a new model with the limitation of lego element. Keep it up. Hope can see more about your new alternative model.
Thanks for the feedback. :) You are right, this vehicle is all about the headllights. I might give it another try because I should have given more attention to other parts too. I really recommend this set for building alternatives - however after looking at all your great versions of the 4955 I started to google-out where could i buy it... :)

Quoting Nathanael Kuipers What a cool alternate! You really captured the looks of the 911, especially with the front. Nice idea with the headlights, including some other interesting solutions! What's next for you?
hmm, it seems my response has been lost... Thanks for your time to visit! The next one is in progress, I try to get a little higher this time... ;)

Quoting Gabor Horvath Nagyon jó lett! Azt néztem, hogy milyen jól összeállnak a vízszintesen rakott elemek (első sárvédő meg a hátsó fele, ha jól látom) a függőlegessel egy kiváló kocsivá. A lámpa, meg az ajtózsanérok szintén jók!
Köszönöm! Igen, megküzdöttem a víszintes / függőleges kérdéssel, de mindent a stud mentességért... :) Én is épp most néztem, hogy ugyanebből a készletből készült a limód. :)

Quoting MortalSwordsman . This is an excellent alternative, I especially like the front and the door linings. I also really enjoy making alternatives and wish I had this set to try my own versions. Welcome back to the world of Lego, I too have just started building again (thanks to my kids) after about 15 years. Snot techniques are tricky but good fun to learn :)
Thanks for your comment. Yeah, I started again because of my kid too - well at least I have a kid as an excuse, even if he's only 15 months old only at the moment. ;) What other sets would you recommend for creating alternatives?
