Electronic Arts offers 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S for promotional contest

If you like cars and are a videogame nut like I am, then you’d be familiar with nameplates such as Gran Turismo and Forza.

But of course, we can’t forget the Need for Speed label. Recently, Electronic Arts has been working up quite a bit of hype for its latest addition to the franchise. And to add to the fiasco, Electronic Arts announced that they will be running a promotional contest offering to win a brand spankin’ new 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S.
