Our Porsche Design Challenge fetched many impressive entries — more than 400 in total. Three examples here: an alpine ski helmet inspired by the 911, a blow dryer that mimics the sound of the engine, and an artificial knee that echoes the 911’s gear shifter.

There’s also an axe, backpack and modular home in the today’s gallery. See all the images->

Design competitions are a dime a dozen, so it’s hard to create something that stands out and piques the creative interest of talented designers. But we think we’ve done just that. The challenge for you: Design an object smaller than a living room and bigger than a purse, which references three design elements taken from Porsche 911s of the past or present. (But not a car!) 

The winner stands to get a very nice prize indeed: A one-year lease on a brand-new Porsche 911, or a cash-equivalent of $20,000.

Co.Design exposure helped TikTok break a Kickstarter record for fundraising. Imagine what it could do for your project! Even if you don’t win this is a great opportunity. Pass it on.
