2018 C2 2.5k miles, driver side door panel rattled the day I picked it up. Starting to notice a rattle near the passenger rear side during colder weather. The front suspension also squeaks when going over tall speed bumps under 40 degree weather.

My 2017 .2, has a door rattle, both sides, helps to rest my elbow on top of the panel. Vibration from the door speaker makes it worse. I also have a small rattle from the cup holder push to open mechanism, left side. It is annoying, but I don't think it's enough to take it in....

I bought a 2015 CPO and I voted, since it had no rattles, the service history where it was originally bought and where I got it shows no service record for rattle complains and repair.

2016 Targa 4 GTS. 17,000 miles. No rattles. Never actually had a Porsche with a rattle. I guess I’ve been very lucky.

It's all relative. Can we have a hearing cert. for everyone that replies?

It's impossible for a car with this stiff of a suspension and such low profile tires to not have noise. I just live with it.

Good point! But the ride of my 991.2 C2 actually isn't too bad, after a little over 2,000 miles and with (Pirelli Sottozero) winter tires.

God bless,

2017 C2S Endurance Racing Edition - Noticed at around 1000 miles...might have showed up after I had vinyl wrap put on. They might have shifted something. Anyway my service rep and I are close and we work to find it for some time. It was coming from around the door handle /window switched on the passenger door. We finally drove down to the service bay on a slow day late and met with the master tech. My service manager was about to order expensive parts and I wasn't convinced it would fix the issue so the master tech and i looked at places we felt it might be coming from. He took off a plastic part to see if it would help and I headed home. It continued but it gave me a chance to mess around until I found something I felt would fix it. I'll post pictures of what I did when I get a chance. I believe the problem is resolved.
