Hey you wonderful 911 owners,
I was hoping one of you could help me out with something; it would mean so much to me and I hope one of you could help me out.
Me and my girlfriend are going to prom the night of May 16th, and (of course typical me, a car freak) I was hoping I could surprise her by driving her to prom in a really cool car, I was hoping it could give her a really, really nice cherry on top of a cake after a really, really long junior year in high school, and hopefully make a memory that will make her happy:)
Since I’m legally underage (I’m 17) I can’t rent a car yet, and I don’t have any nearby family/friends to borrow a car like that from, I was really hoping someone really generous in the New Jersey, USA Porsche community would be willing to let me borrow their car for a night, just to let me drive it to prom and back with my girlfriend. I have over a year’s worth of driving experience, mostly in NYC and New Jersey, I’ve driven both a five-speed 911 speedster and a five-speed Ferrari 512TR before, I’m familiar with manual transmissions (though autos are tooootally okay! I’m content with anything:) ), and if you would be kind enough to let me borrow your car, I would be eternally grateful, and would be willing to go for a vetting test drive, if that’s what you would need from me.
I love cars, and I completely understand the risk involved and the meaning your car has to you, and I would completely respect that if we could work this out. I’m not going to go ridiculously fast, I’ll still drive carefully, and most of all, I will make sure to do everything I can to respect your car.
I really hope we can work something out!! 😊
