have to pass in a color paramter when creating GoKart, i think. and your string is messed up in terms of having a faulty placeholder and not being enclosed. The following seems to pass the challenge:

public class Example {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        System.out.println("We are going to create a GoKart");
      GoKart kart = new GoKart("blue");
      System.out.printf("The kart color is %s\n",
                        kart.getColor());
    }
}
