Optima batteries. Performance Products sells them if I remember correctly. I beleive that they require a certain harness or bracket to fit in Porsches. Good luck James.

Actually the light battery you need was inside at Costco. Battery #47 costs $49.99 and weighs MAYBE half of the stupid Moll battery.

Better battery to boot.

Is is me or is the Porsche just a battery eater!!!!!!!!!!!

I replace the battery in just about every Porsche I sell.

I've read somewhere that european batteries aren't that great when it comes to longevity. That said, last month I replaced what was said to be the original battery in my car.
