Many of these questions have been posted to the RennList mailing list, which provides an on-line community for Porsche owners and fans throughout the world.

The information presented here has been gathered from many sources, and by and large reflects the consensus opinions of members of the RennList mailing list. If you don't agree with something or feel something is blatantly wrong, please send me a note with a correction.

This FAQ originated with the Porschephiles mailing list. Since then, Porschephiles has retired. It was followed by the PorscheFans mailing lists, and more recently by the RennList (née PorscheList) lists. Information about these lists can be found at http://www.rennlist.com, and that page gives instructions on joining the RennList discussion group. There is a 924/944/968 specific mailing list administered by RennList. If you have questions which the FAQ doesn't answer, or if you would like to join an on-line community of friends who share your interest in Porsches, joining this mailing list is a great idea.
