Spare parts for your Porsche

  • Only use genuine Porsche spare parts for your vehicle or spare parts of a similar quality, which have been manufactured according to the specifications and production requirements of Porsche. This ensures that your vehicle remains reliable and safe to drive, and that no consequential damage occurs to your vehicle. These parts are available from authorized Porsche dealers.

    Porsche recommends an authorized Porsche dealer, as they have trained technicians and the necessary parts and tools.
  • Only use accessories that originate from the Porsche Tequipment range or that have been tested and approved by Porsche. For information on Porsche Tequipment: Contact an authorized Porsche dealer.

If other spare parts or accessories are used, Porsche does not accept any liability for damages caused by these parts.

Even if a supplier has obtained a General Operating License for spare parts or accessories, the safety of the vehicle may still be affected. The use of spare parts or accessories not approved by Porsche may also void your vehicle warranty.

Load, safety systems, children in the vehicle: Knowledge for Porsche drivers

With your Porsche, you can accelerate to above 60 mph (100 km/h) within a few seconds. In view of so much power, you should do everything necessary to ensure safety before driving.

For this reason, prepare for the journey with the same passion that you feel during driving.

Your life-saver: Correct use of seat belts

The seat belts can only protect you from injuries if they are functional and are used correctly.

Severe injuries can occur at speeds as low as 20 mph (30 km/h). Safety systems only protect when used in combination. For example, the airbags can protect you properly only if the seat belts are worn correctly.

  • Always fasten seat belts tightly, even on short journeys.
  • Use one seat belt to secure one occupant only.
  • Remove any loose articles of clothing, e.g. winter coats.
  • Do not place the seat belts across hard or fragile objects (e.g. glasses or ball-point pens).
  • Do not twist the seat belts.
  • Always fully roll up unused seat belts.
  • Pregnant drivers or passengers should position the lap belt under the belly and shoulder belt taut over the chest.
  • If worn or damaged, have the belt, belt buckle or attachment points replaced.
  1. Please see chapter "Seat Belts" on page 246.

Airbag system

Airbag systems can only perform their protective function if all occupants have their seat belts fastened and maintain the correct seating position. Objects and luggage must be stowed safely.

  • Make sure that there are no persons, animals or objects between the occupants and the area into which the airbag deploys.

  • Maintain a distance from the airbags, e.g., do not lean against the inside of the doors. Always keep your feet in the footwell while driving. Do not put feet on the dashboard or the seat cushion.
