I'm not really sure what your exact question is, but I'll just go ahead and guess you were wondering why your solution wasn't working. The first issue was that when you instantiate GoKart, you need to pass in it's required parameter, in this case a String for the colour of the goKart. The other thing I wasn't sure about was your formatting, I found that the easiest thing to do was just to use %s. If you have any more questions send me a message.

public class Example {

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