Car Telephone and Aftermarket Alarms
Important legal and safety information regarding the use of cellular telephones
Some states may prohibit the use of cellular telephones while driving a vehicle. Check the laws and regulations on the use of cellular telephones in the areas where you drive.



Risk of an accident.

Severe personal injury or death can result in the event of an accident.

Looking away from the road or turning your attention away from your driving can cause an accident and serious or fatal injury.

When using your cellular telephone, you should always:

  • Give full attention to your driving - pull off the road and park before making or answering a call if traffic conditions so require; and
  • Keep both hands on the steering wheel - use hands-free operation (if available) - pull off the road and park before using a hand-held telephone.

It is essential to observe the telephone manufacturer's instructions before operating the telephone.
Any portable telephone or radio transmitter which is used in a Porsche must be properly installed in accordance with the technical requirements of Porsche.

The transmission power must not exceed 10 W.
The devices must possess a type approval for your vehicle and have an "e" symbol.

If you should require equipment with transmission power values greater than 10 W, please consult your authorized Porsche dealer for this purpose.

The dealer is familiar with the technical requirements for installing devices of this kind.

The antennas for all radios and telephones with a transmitting antenna must be externally mounted.

The improper installation of radios or telephones or use of a radio or telephone with a transmitting antenna inside the car may cause the warning lights to come on.

Improper installation of such equipment can create a discharged battery or excessive current draw from added equipment.

If aftermarket systems are installed by non-dealership technicians or outside the selling dealer, problems may result. Installation of aftermarket equipment is not covered under the New Car Warranty.

  • Consult your authorized Porsche dealer about the installation of non Porsche approved equipment.

Reception quality
The reception quality of your car telephone will change constantly when you are driving. Interference caused by buildings, landscape and weather is unavoidable. It may become particularly difficult to hear when using the hands-free function due to external noise such as engine and wind noise.

Automatic car-wash

  • Unscrew external antennas before using an automatic car-wash.
