Who said rental cars need to be boring?

Porsche is launching a trial of its Drive Rental program in Australia, allowing punters to get behind the wheel of a 911 Carrera S or 4S, 718 Boxster S, or Taycan 4S.

Renters can access a car for a day, a weekend, or a week. The first rentals will be handed over next week, and the trial will last six months.

Initially, the Drive Rental program will be managed through Porsche Centre Melbourne in Collingwood. Anyone keen to get behind the wheel can book online.

Potential renters need to be at least 27 years old, and need to have held a driver’s licence for at least five years.

“Porsche Drive Rental is the latest example of us introducing innovative products to the Australian market,“ said Daniel Schmollinger, Porsche Cars Australia managing director and CEO.

“This pilot program in Melbourne will give us tremendous insights into how we evolve this offering in Australia in future years.“

Similar programs are already in place in Europe, North America, and Japan.
