Styled by the Porsche Design Studio in Zell am Zee, Austria, this cool product sells for just under R9 000 and is aimed at riders aged 5 to 8 years old. The latest offering from Porsche’s Lifestyle Collection for kids comes with an adjustable seat, sturdy metal frame, “coaster” braking system and low-profile pneumatic tyres. Oh, and pedals that enable Junior to go forwards or backwards. (What will these clever Germans think of next?)
With its striking orange-and-black livery and undeniable cool factor, the Go-Kart is sure to make its target market salivate. Some cynics claim this product represents nothing more than an attempt to capture the next generation of Porsche buyers. Er, really?
