Petron launches 'Passion for Porsche' toy-car promo


Petron Passion for Porsche

Immediately after Shell introduced its Lego Ferrari toy-car promo last October 26, Petron Corporation launched its "Passion for Porsche" toy-car marketing campaign on November 1st. As with Shell's promo, Petron customers get the chance to buy exclusive toy cars for every single or accumulated purchase of Petron products (Blaze 100, XCS, Xtra Unleaded, Turbo Diesel and Diesel Max). But while Shell's promo requires patrons to buy P1,500 worth of fuel, Petron's marketing gimmick only asks clients to get P1,000 worth of gasoline or diesel.

Five Porsche toy cars are up for grabs atP180 apiece: the Carrera, the Cayman, the Panamera, the Cayenne and the GT3 RSR. (The GT3 RSR will be available starting December 1, 2012.) These Porsche toy cars seem to be just as fun--if not even more so--as their Lego Ferrari counterparts. According to Petron, the Porsche toy cars featurehorn, alarm and revving-engine sounds; opening doors; LED head and rear lights; and pull-back action. It isn't clear, however, if these toys are made of die-cast metal or plastic.

Petron's promo also runs longer: up to January 31, 2013. It's now just a matter of brand preference: Porsche or Ferrari? Better yet: Petron or Shell?

Anyway, why don't you take our poll below?

Which toy car is more appealing to you?

    ang hirap gawing collection lalo na pag may 3 year old child na kasama. di ka pa nakabayad, nabuksan na kagad ang box lol.

    It's kinda worth it! Got my Carrera S earlier!
  • lord_cykb24 Nov 04 2012 @ 09:16pm
    I'll get first the Lego-Ferrari toys because the duration of the promo is until Nov. 31 only, then after I've completed the set then I'll go back to my regular fuel Petron to collect those Porsche's again..!!!

    Must admit, Petron's toy cars will make me buy go over the bakod.
  • someonespecialisme Nov 05 2012 @ 01:39am
    im getting both!
  • budoy Nov 05 2012 @ 06:01am
    gas refilling switching muna tayo, mas ok ang porsche diecast over shell lego this time around. hehe
  • FanBoy Nov 05 2012 @ 07:33am
    I won't go loco over this. I am strict on sticking on a single fuel brand para ma hindi magkanda-leche ang makina ko.
    • bruce Nov 05 2012 @ 10:17am
      i'm sticking also to my fuel brand and won't switch just to get toys like this.. it's good that my fuel choice is Petron! ;)

      I'm not sure if it's just a myth or if it was scientifically proven. I haven't even read an article regarding the problems with mixing fuel. For my experience it's the contrary. It seems I have a higher mileage if I mix Shell and Caltex diesel for my pickup. I don't know if it was just a coincidence but it happened to me a bit too often not to notice. As long as they're clean, I'm getting the best of both worlds for the "additives" that the brands use for their products.

    Ang tanong ko lang is may tie-up ba ang Petron sa Porsche for them to launch this promo? Not a big deal, pero sensitive lang ako sa mga gaya-gaya :)
  • xxgrendel Nov 05 2012 @ 10:36am
    Is it just coincidence that Mr. Ang of SMG is a Porsche collector, and it happens thet Petron is under SMG. haha. Toys for big boys.

    And we top up with exactly 1000php every week from our favorite Petron station. Now to save that 180php a week. >:)

    You can buy those Porsche at any toy shop, Ferrari Legos are made exclusively for Shell only. Think about it =)
  • Erdiez Nov 07 2012 @ 02:10pm
    Mas OK pa ang ferrari cars, beside ayoko sa gaya-gaya. Shell is the first to launched the toy car promo, gaya-gaya lang ang Petron (walang originality). But anyway, everybody is free to choose which toy they like to get. :)
  • carwiki Nov 07 2012 @ 07:46pm
    Just got a Ferrari Lego toy from Shell! It's more challenging to build though.
  • neo_mco Nov 11 2012 @ 10:30am
    petron's porsche is better with the sounds and lights on the car toy.
  • venus123 Nov 12 2012 @ 03:10pm
    I'm favor to gas up with SHELL its because of Lego Ferrari Toys (Original) Lego yet Ferrari, but also of their quality fuel.
  • mgr366 Nov 23 2012 @ 12:51pm
    any news if shell will be extending the promo?
