ATLANTA, June 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The newest item from the Porsche Driver's Selection is a Go-Kart which puts children from the age of five behind the wheel of a sporty Porsche machine. The Go-Kart, which is about 5 feet long, is a new highlight in the children's program of the Porsche Lifestyle Collection and impresses because of its lightness: thanks to its unique construction, based on Porsche Intelligence Performance, the children's pedal-powered vehicle weighs a mere 55 pounds.
In addition to its exclusive design, another attractive feature of the Porsche Driver's Selection Go-Kart is its use of high-quality drive components typically used for constructing bicycles. The composite wheel rims, with simulated center locks, are fitted with low-profile, inflatable tires with inner tubes. Other equipment includes a sport seat, plus both a back-pedal brake and a handbrake which ensure optimal deceleration. With its tubular steel frame, the Porsche Driver's Selection Go-Kart is suitable for children weighing up to 110 pounds with a height of up to 5 feet.
With an MSRP of $900, the Go-Kart and other products from the Porsche Driver's Selection are available exclusively from participating authorized Porsche dealers and on the Internet at www.porsche.com/shop. Not all the products are available in every market.
