Local Motors has kicked off a new challenge which asks fans to help create a sports car.

As part of the Sports Car Platform Design Challenge, designers are being asked to help create a "new vehicle platform that could be a high-performance, street-legal track car and a full-featured sport coupe that reaches the market in less than two years." The resulting model should combine "unparalleled performance" with an "affordable price" tag.

While the contest is still at an early stage, Local Motors CEO Jay Rogers hinted the winning proposal "could result [in] the next Local Motors vehicle born through our industry-changing co-creation and micro-manufacturing process.”

The challenge runs through August 28th and more than $10,000 in prize money is up for grabs.
