Crowdsourcing has recently dipped its toe into the world of sports cars, when more than 54,000 Facebook fans became responsible for designing a special edition Porsche 911 Carrera 4S.

The social design process happened as a celebration of the German automobile manufacturer reaching 5 million fans on Facebook.

After putting features and specifications to a vote, the end result was a Facebook blue 911 with black and white racing stripes. The doors also feature the words “5m Porsche Fans” and an aluminum dashboard displays the phrase “Personally built by 5 million Porsche fans.”

One lucky fan will win a chance to drive the car at the UK race circuit Silverstone – they will be chosen based on the number of Facebook friends they have that are also Porsche fans. Runners-up in second place through tenth place will receive a 1:43 scale model of the 911 Carrera 4S “5M Porsche Fans” vehicle.

See what the crowd is capable of in the pictures below:
