Interface cable and diagnostic program for a laptop?

I have a 2007 boxster and I have decided I want to keep it for as long as possible and do what maintenance I can myself.

It is possible to purchase the diagnostic program for a laptop along with the interface cable that they use at the dealer?

You can get a durametric that does most of what the factory PWIS does

Do a search and you will get lots of info

As far a buying the factory system, the short answer is Not really
Again do a search for PWIS And PST

There are some Chinese knockoffs around. Most if not all aren't worth the cardboard shipping box they come in.YMMV
