Safety and Driving Pleasure
Dear owner, thank you for choosing a Porsche Sports car. No other car embodies such a unique blend of legendary heritage, cutting edge innovation, high performance and great sportiness.
As your safety and driving experience is our goal, we encourage you to read the Owner's Manual and take time to familiarize yourself with the operation of your Porsche vehicle before you drive it.
To prevent or minimize injury, always use your seat belts and always lawfully operate your Porsche vehicle.
Always keep your Owner's Manual in the car. If you sell your Porsche vehicle, pass the Owner's Manual and other operation manuals on to the new owner.
Should you have any questions regarding the operation or maintenance of your vehicle, please call 1-800-PORSCHE or contact your authorized Porsche dealership.
A separate Maintenance Booklet explains how you can keep your Porsche in top driving condition by having it serviced regularly.
A separate Warranty and Customer Information Booklet contains detailed information about the warranties covering your Porsche.
Misuse of your Porsche
Your Porsche is intended to be used in a safe manner obeying the local traffic laws and in the light of driving conditions faced by you, and in accordance with the instructions provided in this Owner’s Manual.
For U.S. only:
If you believe that your vehicle has a fault which could cause a crash, injury or death, you should immediately inform the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in addition to notifying Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (Porsche Cars N.A.).
If NHTSA receives similar complaints, it may open an investigation, and if it finds that a safety problem exists in a group of vehicles, it may order a recall and remedy campaign. However, NHTSA cannot become involved in individual problems between you and your authorized Porsche dealer, or Porsche Cars N.A..
To contact NHTSA, you may call the Vehicle Safety Hotline toll-free at
