Take for example Porsche. The German sports car maker has introduced a new program in the Netherlands called 'Share a Porsche' and the name pretty much suggests what it is.

The program - developed with along with cellular carrier Vodaphone - allows two to four people to divide the lease expenses on a certified pre-owned Porsche. Leases will run for 12 or 24 months. The monthly cost will include insurance, maintenance, and tax. There is an app available for Apple iOS and Android devices that allow the folks who are sharing the Porsche to set up who gets the car and for how long.

There are a couple conditions to this program. First is you can only pick from either the 911, Boxster, and Cayman. You cannot also pick new models, the program restricts you to lightly-used versions featured on the site. We took a look at that the selection and saw some interesting choices such as the updated 911 with the turbocharged flat-six and a 911 Turbo S with 560 horsepower under the hood.

We're not sure if we would want to do this program since it might end up being more of a hassle because someone wants to keep the car for another day and other excuses. But would you consider doing this?
