Engine Exhaust

Engine Exhaust Inhalation

Engine exhaust is dangerous if inhaled.

Engine exhaust fumes have many components which you can smell. They also contain carbon monoxide (CO), which is a colorless and odorless gas.

Carbon monoxide can cause unconsciousness and even death if inhaled.

  • Never start or let the engine run in an enclosed, unventilated area.
    It is not recommended to sit in your car for prolonged periods with the engine on and the car not moving.

California Proposition 65

Engine exhaust, some of its constituents, and certain vehicle components contain or emit chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.

In addition, certain fluids contained in vehicles and certain products of component wear contain or emit chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.

Hot Exhaust Pipes

Hot Exhaust Pipes

The exhaust pipe is hot when the vehicle is running and remains hot for some time after the vehicle is turned off.

  • To prevent injury, make a point of noting where your vehicle's exhaust pipe is, avoid placing your legs near the exhaust pipe, and closely supervise children around the vehicle during time when the exhaust pipe could be hot.
    A hot exhaust pipe can cause serious burns.

Portable Fuel Containers

Portable Fuel Container Leaks

Portable fuel containers may leak, whether they are full or partially empty. Fuel leaking from a portable container carried in your vehicle could, in case of an accident, cause a fire or explosion.

  • Never carry additional fuel in portable containers in your vehicle.

Ground Clearance

Risk of damage to the vehicle due to lower ground clearance.

The vehicle may touch the ground as a result of reduced ground clearance.

  • Drive carefully and slowly on steep slopes (e. g. parking lots, curbs, uneven roads, lifting platforms etc.).
  • Avoid steep ramps.

Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB)

  • Please see the chapter "BRAKES" on page 143.

The high-performance brake system is designed for optimal braking effect at all speeds and temperatures.

Certain speeds, braking forces and ambient conditions (such as temperature and humidity) therefore might cause brake noises.

Wear on the different components and braking system, such as brake pads and brake disks, depends to a great extent on the individual driving style and the conditions of use and therefore cannot be expressed in actual miles on the road.

The values communicated by Porsche are based on normal operation adapted to traffic. Wear increases considerably when the vehicle is driven on race tracks or through an aggressive driving style.

  • Please consult an authorized Porsche dealer about the current guidelines in effect before such use of your vehicle.
