Default 18 yr old wanting a porsche good idea to buy?

I'm currently 17 and a junior in high school and I was considering getting a 1999-2001 porsche senior year.(preferably the 2001 make). I make all A's and B's in school and have a gpa of 3.47777 and get a discount on my insurance which is under the family plan of my 02 tundra truck which is $200 a month and there are no accidents on it at all nor speeding tickets. Also insured on this family plan are my grandads toyota tundra 01 and grandmas 05 high lander. They are also accident free. I was wondering what the insurance would look like If I got a porsche at 18 with all the listed above? Also if it's worth it for an 18 yr old or should I hold off till a later age in life.

My parents might be paying too much but supposebly they have a big discount so they pay 6 or 700 dollars every 6 months. I drive an 04 pontiac vibe, keep in mind that even with no accidents or tickets, insurance is very high for our age and when its a sporty car, its even higher.

It will be unbelievably high, run a quote on progressive to get an idea though.

Too many unknowns here to really tell. "A porsche" can mean a lot of things. Porsche has made a lot of cars, it will vary from car to car.

Additionally, we have absolutely no idea where you're located. That makes a massive difference in what you pay for insurance as well.

Not to mention the fact that you ALSO have made no mention of what KIND of coverage you want. That ALSO changes what you would pay dramatically.

The best way to find this out is to just get a quote. We aren't insurance salesmen. Rather than having the internet speculate, just go ask a couple different insurance companies.

I want the 2001 boxster s. I would get full coverage on it though and I heard it's pretty high but not the worse.

OK, "full coverage" still doesn't mean anything. You need to know what you want with regards to liability, medical payments, comprehensive/collision deductibles, uninsured motorists, underinsured, etc etc

Just call your insurance company and get a quote.

It would be absolutely insanely priced. Think a multiple of both the other cars combined.
