Will You Help This Awesome Porsche 917K Become LEGO Reality?

Here's why it needs to be made.

A few weeks ago, we showed you some of the greatest LEGO Ideas for car models that needed your votes to make production and become the next generation's dream cars. One of those cars was a Jaguar XJR-9 designed and carefully built by LEGO fanatic Greg998. Well, it seems that this guy has been busy again, and this time he has gone overboard to create a brick-by-brick model of the Porsche 917K, one of the company's best-loved and most outstanding racing models ever to be built. And all he needs is your vote.

With real suspension and steering, his model includes a removable engine cover that exposes a flat-12 engine. Even cooler, he has designed a modular platform that will let you build all 917 versions from the same chassis. Just like the 1971 Le Mans winning original, this 917K features a Martini livery, a rear spare wheel and a horizontally mounted cooling fan. Greg998 put in hours of research and careful assembly to make this model a reality. If you think its worthy of being chosen by LEGO and being sold to a generation of kids who might never hear about this fantastic car otherwise, just head over to LEGO Ideas and cast your vote for the project.
