probably not since the battery wires on the porsches only accept male terminals and the battery you mention comes with female terminals. U would have to buy female to male terminal adapters to make it fit in the porsche.

Specs look like a motorcycle battery.

You can always make your own lightweight battery....

Well assuming the female terminals are similar to the female terminals used on automotive batterys for cars like the Iroc Camero, you can get them at any autoparts store like pep boys or autozone.

As far as power, i have no idea.

Those look fine but i dont know anything when it comes to ampage.

You'd probably have some trouble getting the factory mount to hold on to that battery.
