Buying a Replacement Battery for Porsche 911

Your 911 doesn't have an expiration date, but its battery does. On average, auto batteries last anywhere from three to five years. Check your battery regularly and replace it as needed so it doesn’t leave you and your Porsche 911 stranded. Look out for symptoms of a faulty car battery. A sluggish engine start, an illuminated check engine light or battery signal, swollen battery case, corroded battery posts, or dim headlights can all signal that your battery needs attention.
