Add these to the list. Strobes - designed to stop the common garden variety window-licker from running into you at night, on a dark road.



A consideration with the glass breaker/seat belt cutter. - make sure it’s somewhere that you can reach hanging upside down. If it’s unsecured in a door pocket it may end up out of reach. That would be frustrating

Also, I keep a tire plug kit inside the car.
Which jump starter do you guys recommend? Any concern with leaving it inside the car on very hot days?

Pretty handy group here, me not included. I keep Altoid mints, my hairbrush and some cologne. Never know when you need to look and smell good with fresh breath! Hoping cell phone works and a couple of $50s in my wallet usually do work.

I have this one. And remember that if you want to use it to open the frunk after the car battery fails, then the booster can't be in the frunk!

I think all of us, especially when still under warranty, plan on calling Porsche "free" roadside assistance as Plan A. Once out of warranty, either your insurance company roadside assistance or AAA. Still plan A.

Plan B would be when you are in some area where you have no phone service & no one to help you.

A tire plug kit + the included compressor may be able to get the car drivable, so you can get to a tire shop. Or at least to where you can call a tow truck.
Some of the other emergency equipment may also be useful such as jumper cables. You may be able to get going in 10 minutes rather than waiting 1-2 hours for Roadside assistance, useful if you are in a hurry. The emergency lights, triangles, etc & 1st aid stuff is self explanatory. You can have a great phone & plenty of $50s & get smashed by another car that failed to see you at night in a poorly lit area if you were unable to pull off the road to a safe area.

Just saying.

If I’d read the comments before posting, I wouldn’t have felt so clever.

I live in South Shore MA so don’t drive in the middle of nowhere but I always have jumper cables, a 100 piece Craftsmen tool kit, a couple bottles of water, 2 quarts of oil, a leatherman, microfiber towels, duct tape, Porsche fire extinguisher, and Porsche tire seal kit and compressor. I’m usually packing, so a .40 pistol and extra 10 rd magazine and edc knife too.

I used to keep an "earthquake kit" in each of our vehicles, figuring that here in California the odds of an earthquake striking while I'm at work (with my car) are about as high as striking while I'm at home sleeping (just based on % of time I spend in each of those locations.) So that had things like some water, first aid kit, non-perishable food, rubber gloves, blanket, N95 breathing masks, stuff like that. It all fit in a backpack so you could take it with you if you needed to head out on foot.

With the limited capacity in the Porsche I'm debating if I should keep that stuff...I have it plus my roadside toolkit, jumper cables, etc but I am going to look to pair it down or consolidate based on some of the tips in this thread.
