Because I got a full tuition scholarship to the University I'm going to (Universities are VERY expensive in the US), my parents are getting buying me my own car that I will hold the title for. I'm hoping to get a Porsche Cayenne Turbo from around 2008-2009 or newer but I'm not completely sure what I'll get yet, I'll have to see how much my parents are willing to pay in insurance because I'm only 18 and insurance will be high. If they think insurance would be too high I might end up with a Cayenne GTS, maybe a newer version Cayenne S or standard Cayenne, maybe something else, I don't really no but a Cayenne Turbo would be amazing. I know I'm very fortunate.

Right now I drive a Toyota Highlander.

You are fortunate, not only for the gift, but for the fact that you are allowed to drive such powerful car in such young age. Drive safe when you get it :)

My parents won't mind me having a powerful car, just hoping they can get over the insurance and maintenance, there's a solid chance that they won't let me get a turbo, it's not a done deal.

Lucky guys, my parents were too stingy about getting me anything when I made it to university many years ago, not even my own car. Looks like I'll be buying a 2016 VW Golf GTI in around 6 months time since I've been test driving for around 4 months on different types of cars except for my favourite Audi RS3 which is not available here, as Australia tend to have very expensive insurance for us drivers under 25 years old.

What do you guys think of the Ford focus ST? I need to get a car in the summer and am looking at it, has plenty of power(250 hp), 6 speed manual, etc.
Any thoughts?

I have a Focus tdci 1.6, 2003 made, never had a problem with it. Works like the first day... I got so used to it that I wouldn't trade it with any. :P

I like the hatchback style a lot. I feel like it's more practical than others.

Get an EV, diesel or at least a hybrid. CO2 reductions.

And before you say it, my wife and I both drive hybrids (our last four cars).

here the Govt. offers a grant for those who opt for one in order to generate interest...
However still it is an expensive option.
