When I lived in Boston, I used zipcars sometimes: http://www.zipcar.com/]. They had a Mini Cooper and a BMW 3-series, which were fun to test out. They've been doing this for a couple of years. I've recently seen ads in San Francisco for something similar: http://www.citycarshare.org.

But these are more like rental cars where you do all your paperwork online and just pickup the car (like Hertz Gold). Some company still owns the vehicle and is responsible for making sure vehicles aren't trashed, stolen, maintained or abused -- which are the main problems when it comes to time shares for vacation properties.
