All young drivers are eager to sit behind the wheel of a powerful car. They can’t wait to show the world the skills they learned in driving school. But things don’t always work out that way. The reality is that young drivers are not capable of taming powerful cars.
In fact, it is in their best interest to drive something more docile, durable and slower. So, if your teenage son or daughter asks you to buy them one of the cars on this list, you should decline immediately. Read on to find out why.
Porsche 550 Spyder Replica
