In a bid to expand their market research to the LEGO fans, the LEGO Lab has just revealed plans to launch a “fully autonomous” LEGO Mindstorms Porsche set.

Unfortunately, the LEGO MINDSTORMS Porsche isn’t for sale just yet, but we’re working hard to make it a reality in the near future. We would appreciate your honest opinion on this idea. Give us your feedback here and automatically take part in the competition to win a LEGO Porsche 911 RSR (42096). The competition runs until October 7th, 2020 and five winners will be drawn at random and announced on October 10th, 2020 when the survey ends. […]
LEGO reaching out to fans directly for feedback should be a good thing, hopefully they can take in our suggestions and find something workable for everyone.
Test drive the new LEGO MINDSTORMS Porsche. It’s a supercar, but not as we know it.
