The newest addition to the Drive Society garage is a perfect mix of performance and luxury. With 500 horsepower, this car has plenty of power and superior handling. Motor Trend named it Best Driver's Car upon its introduction.

Members picked out this car at our Great Car Debate. We are building the dream garage of our Members. Drive Society is the only club where you get to choose which cars stay in the garage, which ones we sell, and what we buy next.

How we choose the cars

All Drive Society cars are selected with these core values in mind.

 Our cars are “driver's cars”. We choose cars that connect you to the road through the steering wheel, through the seat, through the tires...all so that you feel one with the road. Most modern cars insulate you from the driving experience; we want to engage you with it.

 We prioritize the core elements of the driving experience — balance, steering feel, and engine sound — over luxury and horsepower numbers. Our cars must be exceptional, and far from the ordinary everyday drive.

 We embrace the distinct personalities of each car. We select cars that will balance the garage to provide a range of driving experiences from the Sunday drive to the perfectly apexed chicane. Classic car rental is mind-numbingly bland; each of our cars is an extraordinary and thrilling experience.

 We know that superior high performance driving is a skill that is earned through experience and hours in many different cars, requiring patience and finesse.

Our goal is to create a community to explore car culture, to experience exceptional driving, and to connect to a deeper experience beyond the everyday.

Be a part of the club.

Drive Society Members Darren and Sara share their experiences driving, socializing, exploring all things automotive.

Drive Society is the only club in the Washington, DC area offering access to a garage of high performance vehicles. Membership includes invitations to Drive Society social and driving events and more.

Members buy a Points Package to drive the cars:

Apex $12,000 for 400 points  |  Chicane $6,000 for 190 points |  Carousel $2,000 for 60 points

How it works

Each car has a points value per calendar day. Each event has a points value per event. You use your points to drive the cars and attend events. You can buy additional points as you need them. Your points never expire. Monthly Membership dues  ($50) start after 12 months if you have points remaining.

Reserve your driving days by checking the Members calendar and requesting cars via text, email, or phone. Weekends require a two day reservation. Cars are picked up and returned at our garage in Arlington. No need to fill up the gas when you drop it off. Insurance is provided for physical damage and supplemental liability; however, your auto policy is primary for liability claims. Access to the Ferrari is limited to Apex and Chicane packages.

Members are verified through a screening process that ensures all drivers practice mechanical sympathy and are passionate about all things automotive. Members must be at least 28 years old.

 

Our story

Photo Mar 21, 1 54 45 PM.jpg

It all started with a 911 back in 2010. We spent months scouring the country until we found the perfect Porsche 911. It sounded great, it looked great, it was awesome. We drove it a lot at first but then a little less and a little less and then we had kids. We jammed the first car seat into the back and still drove it sometimes. But, a car can be expensive even if you don’t drive it. The property tax bills were high and we started looking at what the car really honestly was costing us. When you compare the costs for depreciation, parking, maintenance, and insurance against how often we were driving it, it was costing us $500 each time we drove it. We knew it mostly sat there but we didn’t want to give up the dream. We figured there must be a way for us to enjoy fun cars but not have the incredible expenses (and guilt for not driving it) to go along with it. That was the genesis of Drive Society.  We wanted to be able to enjoy lots of fun cars at a price point that made sense.

Join us and drive your dream.

Ownership versus membership

Why own one car when you can have access to a garage of performance vehicles? With no exotic car rental clubs in DC, the two options for driving a Ferrari are: buy one or drive one with us. The real costs of ownership are significant, as are the headaches that go with it.
