Leather care


The leather may become damaged by the use of unsuitable cleaning agents and care products, and by inappropriate treatment.

  • Do not use aggressive cleaners or hard cleaning objects.
  • Make sure that perforated leather does not get wet on its reverse side.
  • Remove water drops from the leather immediately.

To ensure proper cleaning and care of your vehicle, please observe the following:

  • Clean all types of leather regularly to remove fine dust using a soft, white woolen cloth, or a commercially available microfiber cloth.
  • Remove heavy dirt (not water or moisture stains) with a leather cleaning agent. Read the instructions for use on the containers. Porsche recommends car care products from Porsche Tequipment.
  • Treat cleaned leather only with a leather care product. Porsche recommends car care products from Porsche Tequipment.

Cleaning seats with seat ventilation
Rain water or moisture can stain the perforated leather of the seats.

Removing water and moisture stains.

  1. Seat heating and seat ventilation is switched off.
  2. Ensure there is no direct sunlight.
  1. Blot the entire seat and backrest surface using a clean, absorbent sponge and distilled water. Make sure that perforated leather does not get wet on its reverse side.
  2. Allow the seat covering to dry completely at room temperature out of direct sunlight. Do not switch on the seat heating and seat ventilation to do this.
  3. Once dry, wipe the seat covering with a dry, lint-free cloth.


Cleaning carpet, floor mats

Obstructed pedals
Unsuitable floor mats or floor mats that are not properly secured can restrict the movement of the pedals or interfere with actuation of the pedals.

  • Always check the movement of the pedals before driving and make sure that they are not obstructed by a floor mat or any other object.
  • Secure the floor mats properly – do not lay them loosely.

To ensure proper cleaning of your vehicle, please observe the following:

  • Clean using a vacuum cleaner or a brush that is not too soft.
  • Remove heavy dirt and stains using a stain remover. Porsche recommends car care products from Porsche Tequipment.

To protect carpets, the Porsche range of accessories includes the correct size of floor mats with the appropriate fastening.


Cleaning airbag covers

Improper cleaning
Unsuitable cleaning and care agents may penetrate the airbag system and improper handing may damage the airbag system. The airbag system may not deploy properly in the event of an accident.

  • Do not make any modifications whatsoever to individual components, such as the covers of the steering wheel, the dashboard, front seats and door panels.
  • Do not use cleaning agents or other liquids in the area of the airbags.

Cleaning fabric linings

Fabric linings on pillars, roofliner, and sun blinds, etc. must only be cleaned using suitable cleaning agents, suitable dry foam and a soft brush.

Alcantara® care

Alcantara® must not be cleaned using a leather care product. For regular care, it is sufficient to clean the cover with a soft brush. Strong abrasion or rubbing when cleaning will create a lasting change to the surface.

  • When lightly soiled, wet a soft cloth with water or a neutral soap solution and wipe off the dirt.
  • When heavily soiled, wet a soft cloth with lukewarm water or thinned white spirit and dab the dirt from the outside in.
