Maybe you can combine trips/purposes. I took my wife to Europe in 2014 and we went to Ferrari and Maserati Factories as side-trips along the way to our main trip. If you're already in country for Rome, Naples, or Venice (or Tuscany) it is relatively inexpensive to journey out to Maranello. I trust your parents are going because a Senior in High School may have a tough time renting a car. There are also companies like Viator and Tripadvisor that you can look at when planning your trip.
If a car show is your dream, then go for it, but you may be crestfallen because it is just looking at cars all day and very little hands-on. No driving at all! If you go to Paris you can take the Thalys or TGV or SNCF Train to Geneva for a day and walk to the car show from the train station. Then, walk back and do the trip in reverse back to Paris. Much more to do in Paris than Geneva.
