Kid With Free Porsche Makes Worst Attempt At Financial Independence

Illustration for article titled Kid With Free Porsche Makes Worst Attempt At Financial Independence

Folks in Shaoxing City raised eyebrows when some punk pulled up in a Porsche Cayman and opened up an impromptu scarf-vending stall on Shengli Dong Road. He said he felt bad asking parents for gas money after they bought him the car.


Shanghaiist's Lucy Liu says the cops weren't having it. I guess it isn't legal to just start a store anywhere you want in Zhejiang province. After he got a stern talking to, the kid blazed out to another spot with his scarves and a female companion in tow.

"I sell scarves here just to earn money to buy gas for my car," he apparently told News163, which went on to explain that "his parents paid for the snazzy Porsche but he didn't think that it is right to ask for gas money."



This gentleman is apparently considered "second-generation Tuhao;" a derogatory Chinese colloquialism for "new money" generally extending to mean entitled, gauche, you get the idea.

How old is this kid? Seems to be doing ok for his age. Most 15-18 yr old kids at my (pubic) HS drive C63s, M3s, Stingrays, SLs, CLS63s, Conti's etc.. I got a Civic Si when I was 15 (permit), Acura TSX when I was 15.75, E92 M3 when I was 16, and just picked up a R35 for my 17th. Have the R35 (weekend) and TSX (DD) right now, and i have probably one of the cheapest combos. Plan on selling the R35 for a 991 GT3 or Turbo S asap.
