Auto, Yachts, Jets: Five Ways to Make Your Car More Luxurious


Ten Tips for Daily Driving Perfection

Read the owner’s manual. It’s essential to take the time to read about how your Porsche works to get the most out of it. There are features and amenities you probably have not seen before.

Change the oil. Oil is your vehicle’s lifeblood. Conventional wisdom states that you should change every 3,500 miles for conventional oil and 7,500-10,000 miles for synthetic.

Brakes! Check brake pads and rotors at every oil change. And change the brake fluid every two years (or sooner if you’re a speedy driver).

Coolant. Check your coolant and use only Porsche brand coolant. It’s synthetic and only needs replacement every ten years.

Check tires. Check tire pressure and tire tread monthly. Even if tires are low on mileage, check the date code. If they are six years older or more, replace them. Old tires lose grip and detract from the exceptional driving experience you desire.

Change air filters. Porsches are fuel injected, but the air filter still needs to be changed every 30,000 miles for turbos and 40,000 miles for non-turbos.

Cabin filter. You should change your cabin filter annually to prevent that locker room smell.

Keep the battery fresh. Batteries don’t do well when idle. Give them a workout every week with a good drive. If you don’t drive daily or weekly, a Porsche battery maintainer can be a lifesaver.

Change the spark plugs. Keep your spark plugs firing with regular changes every 30,000 miles for turbos and 40,000 miles for non-turbos. Do the same with the air filters.

Keep clean. Keep the interior neat and clean. You might not think it will help your car mechanicals, but a well-maintained Porsche begets more happy maintenance.

Of course, you’ll want to take part in your dealer maintenance program as well. And, there are specific steps to take before selling your Porsche that will help elevate that experience. If you prep your Porsche for re-sale, you will be taking advantage of Porsche’s historical reliability. Re-sale steps include anything from increasing exposure for your Porsche to gathering records.
