I have to do a report for my business class which I love. It's the only class where I'm actually getting anything close to a perfect score. We have to choose a franchise to report on. Alot of kids are doing McDonalds, Starbucks, etc. - thats cool...but I'd like to do something in my interest. Is a car dealership considered a franchise? I mean if its using the other companies's brand to become "Mike's Ford Dealership" - it's technicially Ford, right? Anyways, is there any where on the internet where I can find info on Lamborghini/Porsche or Ferrari dealership information? I'd actually like to own one of these when I'm older so this is cool!

franchise definitions that I came across-

an authorization to sell a company's goods or services in a particular place

The right under which a franchisee person or company may market a product or service, as granted by the franchisor (the proprietary owner). A franchise agreement is the contract defining the terms and conditions between the franchisor and franchisee.

A license may be granted by a business or company allowing a designee to sell and market its products or services in a fixed geographic area.

Similar definitions are abound. I think that from a technical stand point you are good to go with your idea. Kudos for you for going for something out of the norm and pursuing something that has interest to you as apposed to just relevance.

Here's some resources that I could find for you-

Outside of that I would trying emailing some Lamborghini dealerships and seeing if anyone could throw you some advise.
