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 electric 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:

  • Apply the electric parking brake.
  • Close windows.
  • Close sliding/lifting roof or Panorama roof system.
  • 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 the glove compartment.
  • Close storage trays.
  • Lock doors.
  • Cover luggage compartment with the luggage compartment cover.
  • Close the tailgate.

Notes on the Key and Central Locking System
You are provided with two car keys with integrated emergency key. These keys operate all the locks on your vehicle.

  • Be careful with your car keys: do not part with them except under exceptional circumstances.
  • Remove and take the ignition key with you, even if leaving the vehicle only briefly.
    Do not leave the ignition key in the vehicle.
  • Inform your insurance company of any loss or theft of car keys or if extra or replacement keys have been cut.
  • Third parties can still operate the mechanical locks with a lost key.

Different vehicle settings are stored on the respective key when the vehicle is locked, provided the vehicle is fitted with the relevant equipment.

For information on storing vehicle settings on the key:

  • Please see the chapter "STORING PERSONAL SETTINGS" on page 151.
