My 4-wide version of Porsche's Group B Beast, the 959.
About this creation
What happens if you give anabolic steroides to a Porsche 911? You get a 959! 4-wheel drive, 6-speed gearbox, the first engine with a sequential twin-turbo and an amazing "bodykit" combined with the classic design of the 911.

The 959 was first built as a Group B Rally car and finished 1st and 2nd in the 1986 Paris-Dakar Rally. The street version was the world fastest production car when it hit the streets (Vmax = 195 mph / 317 kph). It was first beaten by the Ferrari F40.

I wanted to build the 959 quite for a while, but I have to admit that Loek Marcus was faster. He was the first buider I know who made a 4-wide 959. But it was Tom's (DeTomaso Pantera's) "fault" that I really started building this one. He wrote a comment for my latest 911 that mentioned the 959.

I started with the 911 and tried to combine it with some details from my Audi Sport quattro S1. It became quite difficult to combine the "3-wide" center section of the S1 with the side panels of the 911. There was always a "half plate offset" in the way. But I finally found a solution.

Enough words, time for the photos:






The rear end with the big wing:
This design was only possible with the new 1x2 "half bows"













The "spy" shot:



Back to 1989:
Accolade presents...
The Duel - Test Drive II

(If that doesn't mean anything to you, take a look here)

F40 vs. 959
3, 2, 1 ... Go! :-)

The beauty and the beast ... But which one is which? ;-))

My 4-wide Porsche family:
911, 914, 550 spyder and 959.

So this is my 4-wide LEGO Porsche 959.
I hope you like it. :-))

Very nice! The sloping hood makes it quite recognizable, even at this 4-wide scale.

Hi Nils, sorry I missed this one. Very cool, especially the half stud offset and the rear end. Interesting to see how you build your Tiny Turbos very innovative. I have a few 4 and 5 wides knocking about which I hope to post soon. I would be delighted for you to become an admin in Bricks of Steel :D. I am so busy that I have neglected all the groups I have started, and I could really do with the help.

It's impressive how you get your tiny MOCs to be so easily recognizeable. You captured the 959's exact shape and proportions despite the very small scale. I just love this work of yours!

Sweet model! I like the whole family, the speedster is a real standout. Love the shout out to Test Drive 2! That game was ahead of its time.

As you are the undisputed king of four wides we would love it for you to choose a car for us. Sorry for mentioning unrelated things on you wonderful 959!

Nils, me and Starscream are thinking about having a MOC off, where we both build a 4 wide car, that's very curvy, but we're not allowed to use cheese slopes. SSSW suggested that we ask you what car you think we should both build for the MOC off. have any ideas?

Stunning work Nils, I love it. Very accurate. I was also hoping you added some photos of it with your F40, and you didn't disappoint! ;) One of your best, I think.

This is amazing!!! it's so well detailed for the scale, and somehow i feel like i recognized it faster then instantly! XD If you can get the little grilles on the rear corners, it would be perfect! i feel inspired to build one now;) stunning job, i wish i could give you more than 5 smilies!

Back end is clever. You can achieve the same look by reversing the direction of the bricks and using a curved windscreen part underneath. I did it on a NASCAR. On my page somewhere. Anyway, excellent as usual.
