We spend a lot of time on the Internet -- pretty much whenever we're not driving, writing about or working on cars. Since there's more out there than we'd ever be able to cover, here's our daily digest of car stuff on the Web you may not otherwise have heard about.

-- Meet a 12-year-old kid who owns three Ferraris. Sure the kid has good taste and made a lot of cash at a young age, but is he even old enough to drive?

-- An alternative-drive-equipped Porsche prototype driven home by an employee caught fire in his garage in Germany Tuesday night. It took 19 firefighters to put out the blaze; luckily the man and woman involved were both safe with only minor injuries. An official Porsche release is expected soon, but they already ruled out an electronic drive component as the cause. Rest assured, this vehicle is not on the market yet.

-- Join the Hooniverse debate as they pose the following question to readers: What car from the past really looked like it was from the future? One of the readers suggested a 1948 Tucker 48, a fine choice and one of our favorites.

-- The crew from Jalopnik has made this interesting infographic that is essentially a road map to buying a new car. After following our rather simple and straightforward route, we ended up with a Morgan 3-Wheeler. Sound off below on what you ended up with. Don't worry, we won't make fun of your choice.
