Patrick Dempsey loves his Porsche — especially when his wife Jillian is in the front seat!

The former Grey’s Anatomy actor, who is the owner of a $1 million 918 Spyder, told Access Hollywood that his wife is also the driver of one of the brand’s luxury sports cars.

“She drives a Targa,” Dempsey, 50, said. “She looks very sexy and very hot in the Targa.”

Dempsey, who described putting the pedal to the metal in his sports car as “exhilarating,” also revealed that he and his wife have gotten frisky in the compact vehicle.

“This is a great car, so you can have a really good time in these cars,” said Dempsey, who credits his passion for racing to his father. “You have to be creative, but you can do it.”

In September, the father of three — he shares daughter Talula, 14 and twin sons Darby and Sullivan, 8, with Jillian — opened up to PEOPLE about his 15-year marriage to his wife — and why he fought to save their relationship after announcing their split.

“Our marriage was not something I was prepared to let go of,” Dempsey told PEOPLE exclusively. “I didn’t feel like we had done all the work. And we both wanted to do that work. That’s where it started.”

“You’ve got to keep at it,” he continued. “You’ve got to communicate, and stay open and not get lazy. And not give up. And lots of sex!”

Although the Bridget Jones’s Baby star doesn’t think he’s in a position to give marriage advice, the actor told Access of being in a union with someone, “Everybody has to listen to their own hearts and they know what’s right for them and I think that’s it. I’m not in any position to give anybody marriage advice, but I hope everybody can work through the difficulties and come out the other side.”
