  1. 718 owners who have owned a previous Porsche sports car

    718 Chat

    Club 911 - General Discussion
    Cant help but daydream about my next car. I have the base 981 now and absolutely love it, but as a Porsche enthusiast, I still find myself thinking about my next toy. Unfortunately, the 718 is out. I think it’s an amazing feat for what it is, but I’d rather buy a Toyota 86 and throw on a...
  6. Engine Oil switch Joe Gibbs DT40 to Delo 400 XSP 5W-40

  10. Rear ended

    718 Chat
    Follow this thread to find out how much fun it is to get a 718 repaired from rear end damage. It wasn't even three weeks old. Doesn't look that bad from the picture, but the collision was loud, so perhaps there is hidden damage behind that cover. I'll get it checked out as soon as Tuesday at...

    718 Chat
    My Porsche dealership quoted me a price of $267 for an oil change. Does anyone else think this cost is exorbitant? I can change the oil myself for about $60. Includes $30 for a Porsche oil filter and about $30 for 6 quarts of Mobil One oil.

    Club 911 - General Discussion
    Does anyone know why the Porsche website is now missing most of the data on the various 911s? 0-60 times, length, width and other info is now marked "TBD." This is a change from what I saw a while ago when this info was listed.
