10 year-old Stepi Wörle hoons a Porsche 911 GT3 RS – Click above to watch video after the jump

Germany must be a magical place. Typically, if we were to tell you about a story that involved a 10 year-old boy, his 14 year-old brother and their father's Porsches, it would end with some totaled sheetmetal at best. But that's not the case in Der Vaterland. Instead, we give you the heartwarming tale of the Wörle family. Mr. Wörle owns a prominent Porsche dealership, and as such, his sons Steppi and Schorschi lend a hand around the family business. How does the guy reward them? By letting them compete at local auto club events with two 911 GT3 RS testers.

If you've never been jealous of a ten year-old, we highly suggest hopping the jump to see the full 11-minute video for yourself. The sight of the Steppi flinging that green monster through the cones is enough to make any Zen master start coveting the kid's lot in life. Even more surprising, despite the apparent silver spoon, Schorschi even manages to do fairly well at the event.

Remember when 911s were known as widowmakers? We've come a long way, baby.

      I'm twice his age and never even sat in one. I hate this kid.
      • 5 Years Ago
      That kid looks familiar. Does anyone know who Michael Schumacher was dating 11 years ago?
      • 5 Years Ago
      You guys have been lagging recently. I saw this on Jalopnik like a week ago. Impressive regardless. Video games help! lol

      Awesome car! A true Porsche. Cayenne what? Not once did he glance at the center stack. Why? Because...
        • 5 Years Ago
        Also, I don't need a nav screen to listen to music. My current ride has this thing, maybe you've heard of it, called a CD player.
        • 5 Years Ago
        You don't know how NAV works? Or you do not like listening to music? Or you love sweating in the summer and freezing in the winter? Or you once inserted your finger into a cigarette lighter and have a fear of that area in general?

        The climate never drops below 70 where I live. And a Porsche is a Porsche. This is how they should be. Of course I would like to have my daily driver to have A/C and a heater. And, no, i don't need a cigarette lighter. Smoking is for idiots that want to slowly commit suicide.

        He probably didn't glance at the center stack because he doesn't want to die in a fiery wreck. You can track an M5 with all the bells and whistles and not look at the console if you don't want to, you know... For that matter you can order a GT3, add back in all of the stuff they deleted, track it and not look at anything but the road (if you're really good, you might not need the speedo or tach, either).

        BTW, if you think "real driver's cars" are stripped to the bones, take a peek at the data management systems in F1 or LMP cars. They make navigation or iDrive look like a Fisher-Price Chatter Telephone.

        SimpleCar: I can agree that tobacco is a waste of money (although it's a good way to increase amount of taxes), but not everyone has not transitioned from CDs to iPods.

      Subtitles? Anyone?
        • 5 Years Ago
        Most of the other commenters have implied most of the story. The dad owns a major Porsche dealership and during one of the performance driving school events his entire family got to play with Porsches of various ilk, that's all. The family also owns some property and has a little autocross/rally track that they let the kids drive a SMART around, and they had other toys when he was younger like dirtbikes, etc.

        Not that hard to follow, even if you don't know German. Just watch their body language and you'll get 20-50% of what they're saying.

        "Woohoo!"
      amount
      • 5 Years Ago
      Hey Simple Car you are being a Simpleton
      • 5 Years Ago
      If he's driving like that at 10 I can't wait to see where he'll get later on.
        • 5 Years Ago
        @ Rich

        first of all who uses "Piets Sake" in a comment. I automatically think you pretty old so im gonna be respectful.

        That is all.
        • 5 Years Ago
        lol, shut up.

        The younger you learn how to drive the more chances you'll be a good driver, that's something Finland has understood and we haven't. Considering he's 10 and not only is he driving but he's learning performance driving, I'm pretty sure he's got a driving career ahead of him unless he's got other plans.

        "The younger you learn how to drive the more chances you'll be a good driver, that's something Finland has understood and we haven't."

        Now, I just looked it up, and the minimum age for a driver's license in Finland is 18, according to The All-Knowing Sage, aka the internet. And in the U.S., provisional licenses tend to be earned at age 16.

        Barring any misinformation (in which case, please correct me), what is it that "Finland understands and we don't?"
        • 5 Years Ago
        Err, axlewood -- ever heard of the Internet? Wonderful invention. Has dictionaries on it.

        For Piet's sake...
        • 5 Years Ago
        "I'm pretty sure he's got a driving career ahead of him unless he's got other plans."

        His plan right now is to enter his dad's business, as is his brother's. By the way, he also said that he wants to keep the Smart and give it to his kids later on.

        I wish AB would get a better translator. Writers here continue to look stupid by making all kinds of mistakes when trying to inject German into their posts. "Der Vaterland" is incorrect, it is "das Vaterland" and "das" or "der" is not capitalized.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I see nothing wrong with this, You have kids driving race karts at that age, this kid is just lucky to have a cool dad that bump him up to the real thing, lol..

      Poor Stepi is screwed if his family's business goes belly-up (not that it will). Imagine driving a GT3 RS at 10, and ending up with a Golf on your 16th birthday. It'd be like hooking up with some really hot chick back in high school, then having your carreer not quite work out and putting on a few pounds so you have to begin incrementally whittling away at your standards until you're stuck at home eating Pringles from the can, longingly watching reruns of The Girls Next Door while your nagging obese wife hollers obscenities at you from the kitchen for not taking out the trash. Good luck, son.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I'm not married, and I actually don't much care for Pringles, but if you replaced the wife with a cat that breaks everything I own, and the chips with McDonald's french fries... well... now I'm just depressed.
        • 5 Years Ago
        both the kids are learning to become master mechanics. with that job and their experience , i'm sure they will be fine.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Thanks for ruining my day...........if those were ZR1's I would commit myself, but I love GT3's too. I am so jealous I can't express it. What a way to grow up doing something you love ...instead of sitting in front of a computer all day.

      I have never been compelled to use this rediculous phrase before, but seriously, fml.
