This car simply begs to be driven very fast and dart around the highway. I told my adult son I'm afraid it will cause me to lose my license. He seems to want me to always take this car too.

To the OP, buy whichever talks to you when you drive it. You'll know.

You did not know me as a kid.

I certainly don’t care what he thinks and I can’t imagine OP cares either. Your kid is happy driving around a battery powered big wheels. Does he give you stock tips too?
Thanks!. For years I have met so many interesting and cool Porsche owners yet wondered who was the impetus for all those Porsche-owner jokes.

Please. You fit the stereotype better than anyone with your bull**** comment about your Ferrari and 5 year old. Go reread what you typed. You’re the stereotype. BTW you’re welcome.

My daughter can tell...

Funny story. All she wanted for Christmas was an Xbox so she got one. She cried she was so excited and she is a very grateful kid. Her favorite game is Forza. We play together and its actually good bonding time although not as great as old fashioned board games. Stay with me... headed to "Stuttgart Sat" at the Porsche dealer this weekend and she was much more interested in the cars she saw on the game. We also talked a lot about the mods on the cars, wings and even the Carbon fiber wheels on a 991TTS exclusive. She has a basic understanding in theory of what the performance goodies do since she plays with this on the game. Was the best daddy-daughter car gathering yet because of her engaged interest stemming from that game.

My daughter knows all about cars because of that game. Forza creates car enthusiasts out of kids so I'm all for it.

My fear is when all the electric cars in the game become so much better haha.
