I'd expect the dealer to RATHER have you ride in the car than drive it hahaha. But that's weird, usually you can go right up to them and ask for a test drive, and they'd usually let you.
Amen to that! I find it hard to believe that the dealear won't let you drive one. The dealership in Ontario, CA, let me drive one, and I launched it, cornered it, and made it stop on a dime. That's the reason why I was sold...if you bring your porsche to the dealership and ask for a test drive, they will take you seriously. i am sure you can beat the piss out of it as well, i did before i bought mine.
