Competition

At 10am EST, we will announce the winner of our 8th and most intense Competition for a regional based car for Local Motors. The winner of Chicago Motors will emerge from a crowded field, and we all cannot wait to announce this winner to the world.

Join us in watching the announcement and then in coming to the site and congratulating the winners AND all the participants. There was so much hard work, comments and super support that the entire community deserves a big round of applause. Certainly the city of Chicago and its environs will never have such a dedicated group of global enthusiasts looking so closely at its shores and developing concepts purely with the Second City in mind. It is a special honor. Here is a taste of the work that was presented.

In a preview of things to come, the Carolina Motors competition is jsut around the bend. Inspired by the new economy of the South with BMW manufacturing, Clemson University founding its ICAR institute, Indian Motorcycle reborn, Chris-Craft Boats, and the cradle of NASCAR, the Carolina's are a hotbed of the new motorhead destinations. As songs have said....

Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning.....
In my mind I'm going to Carolina....
etc etc

Feel the rumble, imbibe the passion, join us for our next competition.

Additionally, in our latest announcement of things to come, Local Motors is about to embark on the next edition of its competitions in a form of shorter, more focused comps. Watch carefully as we announce a new kind of competition to develop some of the more discrete parts of our Rally Fighter - parts which are dying for a taste of the LM Community magic. These will move faster and be an even greater forum for collaboration and challenge.

Always something new from LM.
