Porsche doesn't make oil. Oil manufacturers own the science on this. Porsche branded oil sounds silly to me. Has anyone really had an oil related engine failure??

Called the Porsche dealer in Livermore, he had it for about 15.50 a can. Would be about $200 just for the oil. But labor is cheap.

+1...I've been fooling with various types of internal combustion engines for over 50 years and never once have I heard of an engine failure related to a brand or even weight of oil when a regular oil/filter change schedule has been followed.

Chronically letting the oil get too low...Yes. Not changing the oil...Yes. Losing the oil due to catastrophic leak....Yes....But brand or weight? Never.

All very cynical this morning!

10W-60 for the 911 from a displacement of 3.0 litres
Starting from the 3.0-litre engine with dry-sump lubrication, the flat-six engines of the 911 are more suited to fully synthetic oils. They allow air-cooled engines to reap all the benefits of technological advances in oils. Porsche Classic's 10W-60 version is an absolute ultra-high-performance oil. Its viscosity guarantees optimum lubrication behaviour, both during cold starts and in a hot engine at full throttle. The fully synthetic PAO-based (polyalphaolefin) oil also has excellent properties in terms of evaporation loss, HTHS and shear stability. Anyone venturing onto a race track in a 911 would also be well advised to use the 10W-60 oil, since it cares for and cleans the engine. For example, the additives ensure that the flow of oil reliably transports particles and contaminants to the oil filter.

The oil change intervals for individual vehicle and engine types can be found in the relevant driver's manuals. Engine oil should be changed once a year regardless of distance travelled, since short trips can have a particularly adverse impact on oil. Frequent cold starts mean that increased quantities of fuel, combustion products and moisture enter the oil. This is compounded by the fact that the engine never heats up properly and hence the by-products cannot evaporate. Your first port of call for an oil change should be a Porsche Centre. This is where customers can purchase the Porsche Classic Motoroil in one or five-litre containers. It's worth mentioning in passing that the container itself is a real eye-catcher, designed by the Porsche designers in the Development Centre in Weissach.

Matching oil filters are of course also available from every Porsche Partner in addition to the Porsche Classic Motoroil.

And if you're going to be using original Porsche oil in your original Porsche, you're going to need an oil change label in the engine compartment. Porsche Classic has designed one to match.

10W-60, 1 litre: Part no.: 00004320930
10W-60, 5 litres: Part no.: 00004320931

Don’t forget the following accessories:
Oil change label 10W-60: Part no.: PCG04320931
Oil type sticker for engine compartment 10W-60: Part no.: PCG04320006

My wife had to have Porsche sunglasses. $325 for a pair that were likely made in China for a few bucks. Chech the price out on that cool leather jacket that is always featured in Christopherous. If you insist on the Porsche label you should expect to pay their price. I buy their cars cuz there is nothing else like them that rings my bell. I leave the key fobs, clothing , watches, and oil for others to enjoy.
