Being young and without a license can be disheartening for young automotive enthusiasts who want to explore their automotive passions beyond video games and browsing the internet. One such young car enthusiast asked the Porsche Club of Norway for a ride in a Porsche 911 GT3 RS and actually got it!

With a simple post, the young Norwegian asked his local Porsche club if anyone was willing to take him for a ride in a Porsche 911 GT3 RS and in a matter of days, a Porsche owner with that exact same car obliged the young fan by replying back to his post with,

Hey! I'll take care of this. I got one and will gladly take you for a ride! I'm busy all week, but how about next week?

The Porsche 911 GT3 is a higher performance version of the Porsche 911 sports car. It is the latest in a line of high-performance models, beginning with the 1973 911 RS. The GT3, named after the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) GT3 European Championship it was designed to compete in, has a 3.6-litre naturally aspirated six-cylinder engine, based on the unit used in the Porsche 962 and Porsche 911 GT1 race cars.

The RS is 20 kg (44 lb) lighter than the GT3, weighing in at 1,375 kg (3,031 lb). This weight-saving was achieved by the use of an adjustable carbon fiber wing, a plastic engine cover, and a lightweight plastic rear window. The weight savings gives the RS model corresponding engine power to curb weight ratio of 300 bhp (220 kW) per tonne.

The philanthropy of supercar owners on the internet doing acts of kindness such as this are endless. Rob Dahm, a big youtube poster, says that when he drives his bright yellow Lamborghini Diablo he leaves 10-15 minutes earlier so that he doesn't have to rush away from people asking question and admiring his car, as he says its a bright yellow Lamborghini, it is meant to be shared.

In addition, a lot of exotic car club actually ethics rules about this type of thing. Not riding in cars, but they basically are supposed to remember what they are driving and the responsibility of answering questions and letting people see it that comes with such a car. They are really working hard to turn around the rich stuck up image.

Props to the Norwegian owner for making a Porsche fan for life.
