Local Motors is a next generation American car company

What Company Is Offering:
Local Motors is a next generation American car company. It is the first disruptive entrant in the US automotive industry in decades and it is the first of its kind.Local Motors will design, manufacture, and bring to market innovative, safer, more functional, lightweight, efficient cars through a revolutionary, local assembly and retail experience. These cars will revolutionize not only automobiles, but also the very structure of auto-making, auto-selling, and auto-servicing.

How It Works:
Local Motors will build low inventory, high cash conversion, low capital intensity assembly facilities distributed across the United States, which will bring satisfying and meaningful manufacturing employment in a pleasurable life-work experience.

Local Motors will create an aspirational experience of scarcity driven demand whereby the local factory will create a Wonka-like fascination with its products and methods. Not only will it sell its cars, but it will sell the experience of people being able to visit and watch their car being "born".

Local Motors will pledge a customer experience of loyal, uncompromising, personal service deserving of the largest purchase that many people ever make - their car.

You may post your design competition submissions to your own portfolios. This includes your personal website as well as portfolio hosting sites. By participating in the Local Motors competition, you are pledging not to try and sell your design to other buyers. This means you may not submit the same design to the Local Motors competition and another competition at the same time. We do not want to fall in love with your design, only to find out that you no longer own it or it is no longer available.

After you register and activate your account, you can access your portfolio by going to the "My Account" link in the upper right corner of the main page. Scroll about halfway down, and you will see an option to "Add this picture to my portfolio". There you can upload any design you like, but you will need to do so one at a time and each file will need to be 1Mb or smaller. They are working to make this process faster. Some people have had difficulty uploading designs.
