Never invite car theft!
An unlocked car with the key in the ignition lock invites car theft.

A gong alarm is standard equipment in your Porsche. The gong alarm will sound if you open the driver's door while the key is still in the ignition lock. It is your reminder to pull the key out of the ignition lock and to lock the doors.

Unattended Vehicle

Never leave your vehicle unattended with the key in the ignition lock, especially if children and/or pets are left unattended in the vehicle. They can operate power windows and other controls. If the engine is left running, they may accidentally engage the shift lever. Serious personal injury or death could result from loss of control of the vehicle.

  • Always remove the ignition key.
  • Always set the parking brake.
  • Lock the doors with the key or with the remote control.

To protect your vehicle and your possessions from theft, you should always proceed as follows when leaving your vehicle:

  • Close windows.
  • Close sliding/lifting roof.
  • Close convertible top (with the convertible top open, the passenger compartment monitoring system is always switched off)
  • Activate the electric parking brake.
  • Remove ignition key (switch ignition off in vehicles that have Porsche Entry & Drive).
  • Remove valuables (e.g. car documents, radio control module, cell phones, house keys) from the car.
  • Lock doors.
  • Lock the glove compartment.
  • Close storage trays.
