Petron launches ‘Passion for Porsche’ promo featuring collectible scale models


THE GRAND display at the launch with the real Cayenne.

Porsche is one of the most desired automobiles in the world, and for good reason. The cars, whether it’s the iconic 911, the super-sedan Panamera or the astounding offroader Cayenne, are all among the top in their respective classes. Porsche ownership is only for the privileged few, until now—at least in a vicarious form. Petron Corp. is now offering scale models of Porsche cars at its service stations, available for purchase with a purchase of fuel.

Scale models of the Cayman, Cayenne, GT3 RSR, Panamera, and Carrera will be available through the “Petron Passion for Porsche Promo,” which runs from Nov. 1, 2012, to Jan. 31, 2013. Customers who purchase P1,000 worth of Petron Blaze, XCS, Xtra Unleaded, Turbo Diesel or Diesel Max can buy one of the scale model cars for P180.

The toy cars are produced in diecast metal and in 1:32 scale. According to Petron, each car is a detailed collector’s model with a removable base. The toy cars are equipped with a sound chip and LED headlamps and taillights. They will make a “realistic revving engine sound,” as well as horn and car alarm sounds. Opening the doors will trigger the car alarm, as well as flash the headlaps and taillights. Smaller kids and the young-at-heart can have an impromptu drag race using the models’ pullback action.

Petron showcased the scale models as well as a full-scale Cayenne complete with “packaging” at SM Megamall last weekend.

‘PASSION for Porsche’ collectibles

The “Petron Passion for Porsche” promo is offered at all participating Petron service stations nationwide, and is valid for all cash and credit card transactions. The toy car can only be purchased at the participating Petron station where the customer loaded fuel, or same site redemption only.
