By no means am I a mechanical expert when it comes to my Porsche (or anyone else’s for that matter). I’m learning more each day and consider myself pretty well informed, but if you’re looking for true technical experts, you need to seek out guys like Bruce Anderson and Peter Zimmerman.
Online Porsche Forums
As a self-confessed non-expert, I sometimes find some subjects and topics a bit intimidating, especially ones that others might consider to be more basic.
I’ve mentioned before, that I’m a member of most of the popular on-line Porsche forums (, , , etc.) and they all have lively technical discussion forums. However, at times, due to the lack of emotion and ability to express sarcasm in a forum post the responses can seem, hmm, how do I put this? They aren’t hostile; I’m positive that’s not the intent. Let’s call the answers… short. Yeah, that works.
So in the spirit of this post, I’d like to open this up to everyone that has a question to ask, but for whatever reason, they just haven’t done so yet. What basic questions about Porsche do you want answered? What are the things that you have felt too shy to ask elsewhere? Ask me here and if I don’t know the answer, I’ll research it and find one for you (I’m not saying it will be 100% spot on, but it should at least be entertaining). Besides, where else can you get your own personal Porsche research assistant for absolutely free?
Don’t be shy. You can submit your question in the form of a comment to this post. Or, if you think your question is just way too embarrassingly basic, then use the form here and your question will come directly to me with no one else any the wiser.
Some Basic Porsche Questions
Here are a few questions we’ll be covering in the coming weeks based on suggestions we’ve already received:
- What are Carrera chain tensioners and do I need them?
- What’s the difference between and air-cooled Porsche and a water cooled Porsche? (I’m surprised at how many times this question has been asked).
- What other type of products does Porsche produce?
- I like to invest, where can I buy Porsche stock?
You get the idea from the list above. Nothing is taboo and nothing is too basic. If we can answer it we will; each question will get a response.
