The dream of every humble man (and woman) is finally within reach. From now on, you can rent a Porsche, from Porscheand devour your favorite stretches of local asphalt in one of Germany’s best sports cars.
A ‘Porsche Drive Rental’ program is being tested in Melbourne to start, and will allow everyone (except for a few settings, which we’ll describe below) to take home either a 911 Carrera S, 911 Carrera 4S, Taycan 4S or a 718 Boxster S – for a day, a weekend or even a whole week.
The cost of a 24-hour loan from a 911, for example, is a very appropriate $911, and the rental charges for the remaining cars in the range go down from there.
That fee is actually pretty compelling on its own, and that’s before you consider the free inclusions of a second driver, a set mileage limit, and even tolls. By doing some simple math, you’ll soon realize that you can drive a 911 once every two weeks for an entire year for just under $24,000. Much less than the approximately $300,000 you would have had to part with to become the owner of the vehicle.

Of course, the fun police (hopefully not the real police) are involved in all the details, which include a minimum rental age of 27, a requirement to hold a full license for at least 5 years and a pre – authorized deposit of $6,000 by credit card to be provided upon collection.
If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to tackle Lake Mountain Road or go for a weekend in Torquay and come back with 330kW underfoot, wonder no more. Book on the link below.
