For many of us, our first Porsche was rather smaller than 1:1 scale. Whether made by Maisto, or nipped from Revell’s sprues and glued together, most of our “first” Porsches were tabletop-friendly. Hot on the heels of several Porsche-themed kits, and the release of the 911 GT3 RS Technic kit, LEGO and ReBrik have launched a new contest. In the new contest builders, are to use Technic pieces to build their dream Porsche in LEGO Technic. The reward for embracing Porsche design? A trip from the winning builder’s home country to the Porsche museum in Stuttgart.
How to Get Involved
As LEGO points out, Ferry Porsche couldn’t find the car he dreamt of, so he built it himself. For Ferry that car was the 356, and for LEGO builders it could be as well. LEGO’s rules for the contest are quite straightforward, and effectively only stipulate that the model must clearly represent Porsche design and have a LEGO Technic look and feel. Other rules include:
- Your entry must be no larger than 20 cm height x 60 cm length x 30 cm width
- You are free to use LEGO system bricks[IE old-school LEGO]
- This contest is open to LEGO Digital Designer (LDD) entries
The full rules can be read on LEGO’s website. Entries can be submitted until August 1st, 2016 at 10PM CEST.
The contest winner will be awarded a trip to the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart including guided tours of both the museum and production facilities, as well as a Die-Cast 1/18 GT3 RS, and a LEGO Technic GT3 signed by the designer. Nine runners up will receive both the Die-Cast and Technic GT3 models.
