oil for a Porsche

Best check the manual. It can vary with the different models. Too much can be worse then too little.

A 911 holds way more oil than a typical American car, something like 10 or 12 quarts, so be sure you have enough handy if you're going the put-some-in-it-and-see route.

You got lucky!! You could have been sued! Porsche's should not be towed. Always trailered. And oil leaks were very common. Part of the experence. Along with lack of room, comfort or $12 platium spark plugs. Now they are just yuppie toys. A waste of money. A SUV Porsche? Give me a break!!!!!

911

I've hot-rodded 6 of the earlier 911's. If I remember correctly, the ones with the oil cooler that runs up to the front fender hold 13 quarts. Bill

When your Porche breaks down on the side of the road,you flag down a towtruck for help. I didnt go around asking him if he wanted help,he wanted me. A rear wheel drive Porshe can be towed just like any other car. I used the dollies on the front wheels, not because he needed them,but that, they cost more.
