Certain state statutes and local ordinances prohibit towing with a chain, rope or even a tow bar. In addition, damage to your vehicle may result from improper precedures. Consult your authorized Porsche dealer for details.
Flat bed towing is the preferred type of towing to be used on Porsche vehicles.
Towed vehicle hazards
No power assistance is available on the towed vehicle when its engine is not running. Greater force is therefore required when braking and steering.
When the engine is not running, adequate lubrication of the transmission is not guaranteed. Observe the following points to avoid damage to the transmission.
Towing a vehicle with PDK transmission on all four wheels
We urge that wherever possible, a car transporter or trailer be used to transport a Porsche vehicle that cannot move under its own power. This is the safest way to transport a down vehicle.
For those instances where a car transporter or trailer is not available, the vehicle may be towed on all four wheels only, provided the following conditions are strictly met. Failure to meet these conditions will result in serious and expensive damage to the PDK transmission.
If the vehicle's transmission or shifter is already damaged, serious damage will result if the vehicle is not towed with all four wheels off the ground.
Porsche cannot be held responsible for damage incurred in cases where a vehicle has been transported on one or both of its axles.
