    pretty scary. speaking of oil, besides my module failures, my car "drinks" oil too, always thought this was normal with porsches. for the past ~4k mls i had to put in ~4qt's into my 997S. am i up for the next issue...?

    Re: new engine?

    Fairly gruesome sounding. But given that some supposedly more plebeian, daily-use-oriented German performance cars are well-known for having ongoing engine transplant issues, I would cut P some slack. (Though once F gets some side/head airbags, some may switch to F over P for safe, reliable and enjoyable daily driving use....as counterintuitive as that may sound). Just think of all modern cars like PCs...these systems crashes happen to the best of them on occasion.....

    Re: new engine?


    Okay, now I am officially scared about my January build 997S! Boy I hope it's not a lemon...what a way to think about a future $100,000 purchase...

    our cayenne turbo has used about 6 qts in 6k miles.

    Re: new engine?

    My current 2002 Boxster S has 51k miles and I have never needed to add oil between service intervals (and, yes, I do some spirited driving from time-to-time...oh yeah...it's good for her). Why do some P-cars need so much oil between service?

    Could it be due to improper break-in?
