I think most of us would've dreamt of owning and driving any car in our late teens, although the budget probably didn't initially allow for a Porsche. I got my license when I turned 18 like most of my friends and we drove everywhere, even if there was no reason to get somewhere, it was just the thrill of going through the motions in your pride and joy. Things are slightly different these days, some never get their license, 80% of cars are autos to get people from A to B and we are getting bombarded with hybrid/electric/reduced fossil fuel strategic marketing...…...hell we were going to run out of petrol by 2015!
I don't get out and socialise as often as I'd like but I could talk Porsche all day when I do and still love nothing more than getting out and just driving for the hell of it. I think I've passed my bug onto my two daughters (18&22) who still love nothing more than concertinaing themselves into the back of the 3.2
