HOUSTON -

Shopping for a car and a new life partner gives speed dating a whole new name.

Single Houstonians went test driving for new cars while going on dates on Thursday night.

The event catered to the over 40s crowd.

The couple would get one on one time inside a brand new Porsche.

First they would narrow down the car they wanted and who they wanted to go with. They were driven around by a professional driver.

The Houston Social Source said it got rid of first date awkwardness by giving them something to immediately talk about.
